Strike of High Grade
Ore Vanguard
We stated a few weeks ago in an
article describing development work
on the Vanguard that the ore zone
in this locality covered a wide area
and that the potential wealth was
This statement was made because
of the large surface showings surrounding the Vanguard, and success
attained in driving open cuts etc. on
the ore.
Latest authentic reports from the
Vanguard Hill give concrete evidence that the ore is well distributed
J, and underground work has proven
■ it to be as rich as the sensational high grade now being drifted
on at the Vanguard.
The latest strike of ore was made
a short time ago on the Vanguard
Extension, by the owner, Morris
Petersen. The vein is five feet wide
it is composed of massive chalcopyrite copper, and is widening as
drifting proceeds. The depth already obtained is between 60 and
70 feet, and the tunnel has been
driven a distance of 55 feet. Samples of the ore were recently brought
down, and can be viewed at
Bruggy's store. They are composed of massive copper, and are
among the finest specimens ever
packed from the hills.
The tunnel was commenced on a
fault, which was followed for a distance of 46 feet, when the ore body
was encountered. The ore has been
drifted on for a distance of 9 feet
and it is planned to conduct future
work in following the ore.
The Vanguard Extension joins
the Vanguard on the south, and is
owned by Morris Petersen, who
also holds a half interest in the
Vanguard. The encountering of
this ore still further shows that the
ore on the Vanguard Hill is not
confined to one property, but is
spread over an area of considerable
proportions, the development of
which will be instrumental in the
establishment of a big reduction
plant in the Upper Kitsault valley.
Anyox  Tennis   Finals
Played on Saturday
The Anyox tennis finals were
played last Saturday, amid the
great enthusiasm of a large number
of fans. Mrs. MoTaggart won
from Mrs. Eve in the ladies singles
defeating the latter in two straight
sets, the score being 6-16-1. This
gives Mrs. McTaggart the much
treasured Monarch Life Cup.
In the mens' finals Gerry Mc-
intyre and Fred Brown played a
strenuous match. The sets were
2 all and the 5th set was d-2 in
favor of Gerry when Fred retired
with a bad back, which according
to the rules (Rule 28, Spalding
1927) forfeited the game to Gerry
Mclntyre. The decision was given
by the umpire, Mr. T. Taverner.
The game was olose all through
and well played.

Alice Arm Prospectors
Stake Claims Near
The sensational high grade ore
that has been developed this year on
the Saddle property on Hastings
Arm has resulted in considerable
interest being taken in that section
by Alice Arm prospectors.
On the 17th. of September, J.
Flynn, F. Martinson, J. Collins and
J. Buckley, the latter representing
W. McDonald, left for Hastings
Arm. They spent ten days.there
and staked three claims, adjoining
the Saddle, two on the south and
one on the north.
Prospecting showed that both
veins of the Saddle traverse these
south claims, the veins were traced
for a distance of 400 feet and are
from one foot to two feet wide.
Open cuts showed the ore to be
similar to the Saddle, consisting of
lead, zinc, silver and gold.
The veins parallel each other at a
distance of about 100 feet, and both
were found to be highly mineralized.
A ledge of quartz was located on
the north claim, which will be assayed for gold values.
The Saddle property was visited
and the ore at the bottom of both
shafts was estimated to be from 4
to 5 feet of high grade ore.
The trail from tide water to the
Saddle, which was built this year,
was greatly appreciated enabling
much better access to this section
than formerly. The party arrived
back in Alice Arm on Monday well
pleased with their trip.
Tragic Death of H. W. Held-

present intention of members of the
family to return his ashes to the
hills which he loved so well.
The daughters of the late Mr. G.
W. Morely wish to thank his many
friends in the north for their kindness, sympathy and beautiful floral
tributes. All of which were very
much appreciated by all members of
the family. It was a great comfort
to them to know that Mr. Morely
had so many friends in the north. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday,    October   1   1927
Consolidated is Rushing
Work on Road to
Big Missouri
Portland Canal News
Two large portable compressors
and considerable other equipment
arrived from the south last Sunday
consigned to the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Co., for delivery to the Big Missouri mine.
These and large quantities of supplies for road construction are
being rushed up the Salmon valley
by the Crawford Transfer Co. for
use in widening the present trail
from Premier to Big Missouri into
a wagon road. Several contracts
are understood to have been already
let and a considerable force of men
employed. It is said that there is
about three miles of rock besides
other work to be done. According
to reports it is the intention to rush
this work so as to have the road
wide enough for sleighs during the
winter and to complete the widening next summer. The exact details of arrangements made with
the government are not known at
this time, but it is understood that
the Consolidated have approximately $25,000 for this work, and
the government a like amount.
This decided action on the part
of the Consolidated would appear
to confirm the report emanating
from Tacoma some weeks ago to
the effect that a deal had been
made for the Consolidated to take
over the control of operation of the
Big Missouri.
The Consolidated are conducting
operations on the George Copper,
where they now have twodianiond
drills working two shifts.
Colonel Chas. Lindberg Goes
Underground at Butte
Colonel Charles A. Lindberg recently visited Butte and was taken
underground at the Leonard mine
of the Anaconda Copper Mining
Co. Upon completion of the trip
the Colonel stated '"That is one of
the most unique experiences I ever
had." As the guest of J. Carlos
Ryan of the Anaconda company,
Colonel Lindberg and party were
taken on a three day's hunting and
fishing trip among the lakes and
mountains in the northwestern
part of Montana.
Big Acreage Irrigated
Irrigation is now being supplied
to over a million acres of land in
the west, according to the Department of the Interior, and surveys
are being made of a number of additional projects which should bring
the total up to If million acres.
Herds of cariboo thought to number some 60,000 are reported to
have been seen between Isaac
Creek and Selwyn on the Yukon
River. They were filmed by a news
photographer from the steamer,
White Horse.
Handsome Mining Book
Issued by Canadian
National Rys.
Of considerable value to practical
mining men and geologists of the
province is a 132 page booklet entitled ''Minerals and industries in
the areas served by the Canadian
National Railways", recently published by Mr. C. Price Green, F. R.
G. S., Commissioner of Natural
Resources, Montreal, and now obtainable from the Vancouver office
of the Natural Resources Branch
ofthe Canadian National Railways.
One of the unique features of the
booklet is a series of specially prepared maps which show section by
section all mineral fields of importance along the railway from coast
to coast. Trails, portages, etc., are
plainly shown, as well as the position of the actual mineral deposits
many of which have been visited
by Mr. Price-Green, and printed
descriptions of the occurrences
accompany the maps, so that the
publication is of the greatest value
to those seeking accurate information in readily accessible form.
A hundred pages of the booklet
are devoted to a detailed description
of the various minerals found in
Canada, and much interesting information is given as to the uses
and available markets for these.
The publication was prepared
specially for the benefit of the Empire Mining aud Metallurgical
Congress, to each of whom a handsomely inscribed copy was«present-
ed. Much favorable comment was
heard, and it is hoped that when
these souvenirs are taken home by
the delegates they will do much to
spread the news of Canada's undeveloped opportunities among mining men in other parts of the

Aggregate Value of $988,108,47ft
The substantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive $94,547,241; forfive years. 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five yeare-

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been dono
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application

Hudson  Bay   Railway
Being Completed
The bridge crossing the Limestone River at Mile 350 on the
Hudson Bay Railway was completed during September, according to
a statement made by H. A. Dixon,
chief engineer of the Canadian
National Railways who is in charge
of the construction of the road.
Now that the bridge is finished,
track laying will be started from
the Limestone River to Mile 359.5,
the new junction point to Fort
In the meantime a location party
is in the field locating the line
towards Churohill and as soon as
the track is laid to Mile 356.5,
work will start in clearing, grading
and ditching the line towards

h und red men have been engaged
blasting, widening, lifting fills and
ditching on the Hudson Bay Railway between The Pas and Mile
350 the present end of steel. Considerable progress has been made
and the track for almost all of the
distance is in first class operating
condition. Three steam shovels
are being used in this work.
It is reported in Butte that the
Butte & Superior Mining Co. will
sink its main shaft to the 4,000-ft.
point. The company has crosscut
the Rainbow Lode on the 3,600
level, at which point it is about
\ 250 ft. in width. Some copper
stringers were cut south of the
shaft, and the vein now is being
drifted on to the east and west.
Ontario Cobalt Product-1

Finally revised statistics on
Canada's cobalt production show
an output of this metal in 1926 of
664,778 lb., valued at $1,136,014
against 1,116,492 lb., valued at
$2,328,517, during the year
1925, acoording to the mining
branch of the Dominion Bureau of
Statistics. This production figure
includes the Cobalt content of the
various cobalt products sold by the
south Ontario smelters and the
cobalt content of the pres and re>
sidues exported for treatment in
foreign smelters. The value given

The decline in production was
caused by the introduction into the
world's markets of cobalt from
central Africa, where it occurs in
association with copper, in the
mines operated by the Union Min-
iere du Haut-Katanga. Thiscotn
pany now produced about 45 per
oent of the world's cobalt output
and the Canadian production makes
up the remaining 55 per cent.

This is the first printed map on
detailed scale of all the Queen
Charlotte Islands, and the first time
it has been possible to clearly pic
ture the available information:-
An authoritative appraisal of the
known resources of the various
areas of these Islands, and their potential development, is furnished by
the "economic" notes shown in red.
The work and practice of economic geography is becoming more
widely known, and of more general
use in its application. As in war
time, the work of the high command
and staff of our armies is particu
larly to study the past, present and
future conditions for or against sue
cessful attack or defence; so is the
work of the economic geographer
for peace and general well-being to
define the conditions of prosperity
and possible growth through the
study of the past and the present as
a guide of what may be expected in
the future. With this in view, the
appreciations covering forest, climate, water-power, mining, grazing,
fisheries, agriculture, etc., will furnish valuable reference.
A copy of the map may be obtained from the Department of
Lands, Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B. C.
