Work Progressing at
the Homestake Mine
Considerable Work being Done
and Property Looks Promising
Work at the Homestake Mine is
f progressing with remarkable rapidity.   No 1 tunnel has been driven
1 a distance of 103 feet, and No. 2
tunnel  45 feet.   The main ledge
oan be traced on the surface for
a distance of 6,000 feet, varying
in width from 50 to 300 feet. ' No.
1 tunnel will intersect the ledge at
1 distance of 143 feet and No. 2
tunnel which is 1500 feet distant
from   No.   1   will  encounter  the
ledge at 460 feet.     The work of
I facing up for a No. 3 tunnel will
j be done this fall, so that work can
be commenced early in the spring
before the snow is gone.   No. 3
I tunnel will be 1000 feet east of No.
2.   Another tunnel will be driven
at a later date, which will be about
11000 feet east of   No. (3   tunnel.
The maximum depth  obtained
will be about 300 feet and should
prove up an immense body of ore.
Foundations for a small00m-
pressor plant have already been
blasted out and it is'the intention
of the company ' to ship in the
compressor and machinery over the
snow next March; clear the snow'
from the compressor site, and install the machinery and go to
work as soon as the compressor is
ready.
Work can then be resumed on
the No. 1 or 2 tunnels, or No. 3
can be started as it will already be
faced up.    Water power from a
preek on the company's property
will be utilised to drive the compressor.
Two more ledges have been
located on the property this summer, one being 45 feet wide and
the other 16 feet wide.
Capt. A. C. H. Gerhardi, who is
in charge of operations, brought
some fine samples of ore from these
ledges to Alice Arm this week,
the ore running high in silver and
copper.
The Homestake property is under
bond to the Consolidated Home-
stake Mining' and Development
Co, Ltd, of Vancouver, who have
12 men working on the property.
Work will be continued this year
until about the 15th. of October
and will be resumed again next
March.
Assays taken on the property
have carried good gold, silvpr and
copper values. A composite assay
taken from all the Samples off the
property, gave returns of 0.56 ozs.
gold, 214 ozs. silver and 5.02 per
cent copper. Other assays taken
have given as high as 23.62 ozs.
gold, and 117.70 ozs. silver per
tori.
If the proposed development
work proves up to the expectations
of the company, the .Homestake
mine will ralik as one of the largest producers in B. C.
ALICE ARM HAS BIG
BODIES OF ORE
Government Geologist says
Kitsault Valley Looks
Encouraging
Mr. G. Hanson, who has been in
charge of the Geographical Survey
Party for the Dominion Government since last June, left this week.
He expected to go to Stewart to
examine the Premier Mine, before
returning to Vancouver. He has
been here since last June, and has
examined and studied the geographical formation on . mining
properties from the David Coppor-
fteld, which lies south of the Dolly
Varden mine, to the Kitsault
Glacier, eight miles to the north.
The Ground covered was approximately 40 miles square. Mr.
Hanson is very optimistic of the
future of Alice Arm, and states
that, his work here this summer
has been very interesting and encouraging and that there are very
large bodies of ore in the upper
Kitsault Valley, and it is his belief
that the camp has a great future.
He hopes to be back here next
summer to do more work in the
Kitsault River Valley and also
study the Illiance River Valley
section. His, report on the district will be published next spring
by the Department of Mines at
Ottawa, and will be illustrated by
maps showing the different formations in colors. This report will
be eagerly looked for and we hope
Mr. Hanson will visit us again
next summer.
Another Strike
of High Grade
on Toric Group
Strike was made 1200 feet
Above Last Big Strike
If you have anything for sale,
advertise it in the Herald.
Another strike of high grade ore
Was made by Mr. Gus Strombeek,
on the Toric Group, this week.
The strike was made while cross-
cutting the No. 3 ledge on the
surface. Samples of ore taken
from the ledge on a width of 5 feet
gave returns of 106 ozs. silver per
ton.* No. 3 ledge is 120,0 feet above
No. 2 ledge, on which the "sensational stria* of high-grade ore was
made by Mr. John Strombeek, a
few weeks ago.' It has been traced
on the surface for a distance of 800
feet and varies in width from 5 to
8 feet. Work on both the No. ,2
and No. 3 ledges will be done this
fall, and according to present plans
work will be concentrated on the
No. 2 ledge during the winter, as
it is only 150 feet above the railroad grade, thus affording easy
shipping facilities should the owners decide on shipping next spring.

Well-known Resident
of Alice Arm Married
Mr. R. F. McGinnis arrives
Home with Bride
The, people of Alice Arm were
greatly surprised on Thursday,
when a telegram was received from
Anyox, announcing that Mr. R. F.
McGinnis was en-route from Prince
Rupert to Alice Arm accompanied
by his wife. .   •      ■ „„   ' •
The wedding wa's solemnised in
the First Baptist Church at Prince
Rupert, on Wednesday, September
15th, at 1 p.m., when Miss Frances
Donaldson, of Philadelphia, Penn.
U. S. A. and Mr. R.-F. McGinnis
of Alice Arm, were united in marriage. The Rev. W. H. Redmond
performed the ceremony. The
bride, who has been residing in
California for the past year, arrived
in Prince Rupert a few days previous to the ceremony, accompanied
by her mother, who also came with
her as far as Anyox.
A large crowd was assembled on
the wharf at Alice Arm, on Thursday evening, when the Awake
arrived and gave the happy couple
a right royal welcome. Mr. McGinnis is an old-timer in the camp,
and his brother was formerly
superintendent at the Dolly Varden
mine before it was taken over by
the present owners.

Anyox Wins First Round
Baseball Championship
3000 Spectators Witness a Very
Exciting Game
On Wednesday, September 14th.
Anyox and Prince Rupert met in
the 1st. round of the northern B.
C. Baseball Championship on the
Prince Rupert ground. The Anyox
team winning by the score of 4 to
1 in one of the best games ever
staged in the north.
Anyox scored two runs in the
first innings due to an error on
Prince Rupert's second base, and
let both Down and Sherman in.
Down with his usual burst of speed
and trickiness at stealing bases
was the first Anyox player to cross
the plate. Air-tight ball was then
played until the second half of the
6th. innings, when with the bases
full, Rupert managed to slip one
over from a long throw by Sherman.
The seventh innings which is
considered lucky by Prince Rupert,
proved a lemon. Prince Rupert
seemed to have Ferguson in a hole,
with all three bases full the fourth
man came to bat and managed
to make one long drive, Sherman
making a sensational catch' after a
long run. Brown at short speared
the next batters drive, converting
same into a double play, and again
blasted the hopes of Prince Rupert.
These two plays drew great
applause from the' 3000 spectators
and clerfrly. demonstrated that
superior ball has been handed out
to the Anyox fans this season.
In the first of the eighth innings
Anyox added two more to their
string. Prince Rupert played
great ball and it was anybodys
game until the end of the last
innings. Ferguson pitched great
ball for Anyox and with all Rupert's supporters trying to get his
goat it made 1io difference. Anyox
team played a fine game all through
and deserve great credit in winning against such brilliant opponents. They received great applause
from the spectators for their clever
work.
si
Up to the time of going to press
we have not received word of the
result of the game with Prince
George.
Report that the Dolly
Varden will Operate
Persistent rumors have been

week, to the effect that the Taylor
Mining Co. are going to opeh up
the Dolly Varden and Wolf mines

extensive development work on
both properties, and that ore will
also be again shipped this fall.
The officials of the company when
approached for information regarding the operation of the properties
had nothing to say.

The Good Times
are Ahead.
. The world depression and stagnation of business is still running
its dreary course, but in the opinion
of the leading economists and big
business magnates of the world a
steady improvement from now on
can be looked for, in other words,
the world is in about as bad a
state as it is possible to get and
still carry on. The old saying
still holds true, "The higher you
go the worse the fall." The world
went as high as it possibly could
during the war, wages were high,
labor was at a premium, everyone
was making big money, everyone
was producing something, the nations of the world were clamoring
for commodities of all kinds and
piling up reserve stocks in case
their communications were at any
time cut off. The war stopped
with a jerk that threw us all off
our feet, and we havn't got our
balance yet. The mining industry
was the first to feel the effects of
the present stagnation, the price
of all metals came down with a
rush, except silver, which continued to advance for some time after
the armistice, and then it too
declined in price; and the .outlook
for the mining industry was black
indeed. For some months, however, silver has been steadily
increasing in price, the latest quotations being over 64 cents per
oz. and the silver camps of British
Columbia are beginning to take
heart and make preparations for a
resumption of mining. Increasing
numbers of mining engineers are
examining properties in northern
British Columbia, seVeral well-
known properties have recently
been bonded, and in the Alice
Arm district big things are expected to develop in the near future.
The Kitsault and Illiance River
Valleys have immense deposits of
high grade silver and copper ore,
and every geologist and mining
engineer that has examined the
country has been favorable impressed with the mineral wealth
it contains. The mining outlook
for Alice Arm is getting brighter
>all the time, we must not expect
too much at once, it will take some
time for conditions to again right
themselves, but we can rest assured
that Alice Arm will be one of the
first mining camps in British Columbia to feel the effects of a
resumption of activity by the big
mining companies of the continent.
The mineral wealth is in the
country, and the means of transportation are available by the
Dolly Varden Railway, as far as
the Kitsault Valley is concerned,
and it is hoped the Illiance Valley
will be in a similar position next
summer, when the Alice Arm and
Ayiansh road is completed. Alice
Arm is exactly like any other
mining camp on the American
continent, it has felt the effects of
the stagnation of the mining industry, but the good times are ahead,
we are getting our balance and are
on the road to prosperity, and by
the time the next slump comes,
we shall without doubt have some
of the largest mines in British
Columbia operating in our midst.
Mines Operating on
Coquahalla River
The Liberator Mining Company of
Vancouver have a force of twenty-five
men at work oh the Emancipation
mine, seventeen miles from Hope, on
the Coquahalla River, They have a
large tonnage of mill ore of a high
grade blocked out in the mine, also
about 2000 tons of high grade mill ore
on the dump, They are erecting an
aerial tram over 3000 feet long to
convey the ore to a mill with a
capacity of fifty tons per day, which
they are erecting at Emancipation siding about one and a quarter miles east
of Jessica station, on the Kettle Valley
Railway. They claim to have their
mill in running order before November
A net return of $37,000 have been
|/obtained from 120 tons of gold ore
shipped from this property to Tacoma
and Shelby smelters after all freight
and treatment charges were paid.
Gold Strike North of
Fairbanks. Alaska
A gold strike, reported to be the
richest since Oleary Creek days, is
reported to have been made along
Wilbur Creek,   north  of Fairbanks.
A stampede of miners js under way,
and the strike is reported to^ be a
sensational one The strike is a few
miles from Brooks.
When the road from Alice Arm, to
the Nans Valley is completed it will
be possible to ride in an auto from the
Alice Arm wharf to the Naas Valley
in about one hour. The people of
Anyox could have breakfast at home,
lunch in the Naas Valley and dinner
at Alice Arm, and arrive back in
Anyox the same day.
Just as soon as the road is completed
the people of Anyox will be able to
wander amid the fields of waving
grain a few hours after leaving home,
and will be able to spend a week or a
month's holiday in one of the most*
beautiful valleys in British Columbia.

REVIEW OF THE
COPPER MARKET
The  Northwest Mining Truth,
Spokane, Wash., September 3rd.,
1921.—'"Copper:    The metal   remains in tl,ie dumps, speaking in
the prioe  sense,   with   a marked
tendency to further weakness in
the" past two  weeks.   While the
big interests have held the nominal
trading   price  at 12 cents, sales
have    been    made   as    low    as
11,37,   establishing  a low* record
that has not been touched in over
seven years.    As   to  the future,
there is not much optimism apparent.   Estimates of stocks on hand
run from 750,000,000 to 1,000,000,
000 pounds with practical certainty
that the figure  is somewhere in
between.   The condition of the big
properties throws light upon the
general  situation.      Utah Copper
lost $444,229 in the last quarter of
the year, compared with the loss of
$88,828 in the first quarter of this
f year and net profit of $2,240,470
for  the  same  quarter  of    1920.
! Nevada Consolidated lost $278,858,
compared with the loss of $6,634
for the first quarter of 1921 and
gain   of  $599,583  for  the  same
quarter of 1920;   Chino lost $304,
608,   compared   with   the loss of
$53,137  for  the  first quarter of
1921 and gain of |350,152 for the
same quarter of 1920,  while Ray
t Consolidated lost $370,209 compared with loss of $181,296 for the
i first quarter of 1921 and gain of
S7,255 in the ■'same quarter of
1920. All these properties have
been closed down since late March,
so that the losses in the second
quarter represent a drain that will
probably be maintained at about
the same level until resumption of
production becomes possible. It is
certainly a far from reassuring
situation and one that solely depends for betterment upon Europe
an demand and revival of domestic
business., When will improvement
begin.? That is the question that
even the highest authorities are
sidestepping more determinedly as
time goes on."
Will Complete P. G. E.
The Provincial Government intends to complete the construction
of the P. G. E. as early as possible.
Only;63 miles separate the steel-
head from Prince George and 20
miles are expected to be laid this
fall. The southern stretch from
Squamish to Lillooet may be abandoned and a cut-off built from
Clinton to Ashcroft.
Investigating Damage
At Britannia Mine
Mr. W. J. Quigley, ,a prominent
eastern Canadian engineer, has been
recently investigating the damage
caused by the fire at the Britannia
Mine, Howe Sound. He was engaged
by the company to look into the
rebuilding of the destroyed concentrating mill. While plans for reconstruction are rapidly progressing, no
definite date has been given when
building would actually commence.
