Chas. Bocking Elected
President Granby Co.
Mr. Charles Booking has been
elected to the position of president
of the Granby Consolidated Mining
Smelting & Power Co, Ltd. The

part, of 1915, when he accepted the
position ot Vioe-President and
General Manager. Since that time
he has brought tho Granby Co.
operations to a high state of
efficiency and placed the company
among the successful copper operators of the continent.
Mr. Booking was formerly associated with D. C. Jackling in the
operation of the Utah Copper Co.
and previous to ooming to Anyox
was general manager of.the Butte
& Superior Copper Co.
New C. N. R. Boats For
Northern Run
Orders for new coastwise tonnage
will be placed soon by the Canadian

Company representatives recently
instituted enquiries among Clyde
shipbuilders with a view to obtaining data on construction costs and
date of delivery.
It is understood that two modem
passenger and freight boats, with
possibly a third, will be built to
augment the Prince line service out
of Vancouver to northern British
Columbia ports and Alaska.
It is hoped by officials to have the
new boats completed for entry in
the tourist service next summer.
The steamers Prince Rupert and
Prince George, now on the route,
were built by Swan, Hunter, Whig-
ham & Richardson at Newcastle-on-

Esperanza Mining Company Completes
Very Successful Year In Every Respect
The fiscal year of the Esperanza
Mining Co. which terminated on
the 28th. of March has been a very
successful one for the company in
many ways. They are in a strong
liiianciiil position; much valuable
development work has been done,
disclosing high grade ore bodies,
and a new up-to-date camp constructed.
Development work was not carried on continuously throughout
tlie year. Underground work was
done in April and May, and was
not re-commenced until November
2nd. Since that time it has been
carried on continuously. The summer was spent in assembling material and building a new camp, and
the mine was also timbered.
Development work for the year
consisted of approximately 747 feet
of drifting, which was done at the
low cost of $13.26 per foot, which
speaks well for the capable management of N. Fraser who is in
No shipments of ore were made
during the year, it being the policy
of the company to continue development with a view of ascertaining
tlie approximate tonnage of both
high grade and milling ore, and on
its completion to instal a suitable
power plant, compressor and concentrating mill.
More ore—both high grade and
milling—was developed last year
than any previous year in the
company's history. A notable feature being the encountering of an
ore body 46 feet wide carrying
high values in gold. The chief
values previously obtained in the
other veins mined has been silver,
and tungsten ore has also been
found in commercial quantities.
During the year an ore vein 15
inches wide, composed of high
grade silver ore was drifted on in
No. 1 tunnel for a distance of 200
The Baldy tunnel was extended
a distance of 45 feet, the last 10
feet being in high grade ore with
a width of 18 inches.
The vein in No. 2 tunnel was
drifted on for a distance of 12 feet
and the high grade vein 15 indies
wide was shown to persist.
No. 7 tunnel was drove a distance of 150 feet, and it was here
that the big ore ledge 46 feet wide
was encountered, and crosscut.
A new tunnel was commenced
during the year, and known as
No. 5. It has been driven a distance of 340 feet. Its elevation is
200 feet below the older workings,
and its purpose is to provide a
main working tunnel. It will tap
practically all the other workings
by raises. A body of ore of a good
milling grade 20 feet wide was
crosscut by this tunnel, but has
not been further developed.
Development work for the coming
year will consist of extending the
No. 5 tunnel to a distance of 600
feet from the portal. It is expected that the gold bearing ore located
by No. 7 tunnel will be encountered
at a distance of 300 feet from the
A new tunnel will first be driven,
however, under No. 7 a distance of
150 feet in order to block out the
ore before proceeding with tlie extension of the lower tunnel.
On the completion of these two
tunnels a decision will be reached
as to the size of power plant, compressor and concentrating mill,
which will be installed. On their
installation mining will be carried
on, the high grade will be shipped
and secondary ore milled. A short
aerial tram will also be built to the
Dolly Varden railway.
The Esperanza mine is among
the most promising in the district.
It has to date shipped over $100,
000 worth of silver ore by various
owners, and the ground is barely
scratched. Its close proximity to
the Dolly Varden railway and government wharf is a valuable .v.;»ct
that is not enjoyed by many mines.
It has everything in its favor for
developing into a producer of considerable proportions, and under
the present aggressive policy of the
company this stage will be reached
sooner than many realize.
Esperanza  Extension Being
The Esperanza Extension and
Annex No. 1 which is owned by
Angus MacDonald is being developed by him. A new tunnel has
been commenced at a 1000 feet
lower elevation than the workings
on the Esperanza. The Esperanza
Extension lies north of the Esperanza, and it has been stated by
mining engineers that this is the
logical point for a tunnel to strike
tho ore bodies of the Esperanza at
great depth.
Granby Co. Raises Dividend
Due to the recent increases in
the price of copper the Granby

Dr. H. T. James Takes Over
New Position
Dr. H. T. James, who, until recently, was resident mining engineer
for the North-western district,

on Wednesday. He has taken a
position with the Granby Co. and
will be engaged in geological work
on the company's holdings at Anyox.
Large  Number   Enjoy
Elks Easter Ball
The Easter Ball, held at the Elks'
Hall on Monday evening was attended by a large crowd of dancers, who
spent a very enjoyable evening.
The Ball was sponsored by Anyox
Lodge No. 47, B. P. O. Elks, and
the "Brother Bills" as usual proved
themselves incomparable hosts. No
effort was spared to make everyone
happy and gay.
The hall was tastefully decorated,
and the pretty decorating design
received many favorable comments.
Music of the evening was in the
hands of the Victor orchestra,
whose rippling strains and perfect
harmony gave everyone an incentive
to dance every possible number.
During the supper interval, Mr. F.
Dresser at the piano, rendered
several dance numbers.
A sumptuous supper was partaken
of in the Dugout at 11.30 p.m. and
dancing was carried on until 2 a.m.
The committee in charge of the
evening's success were:
A. S. Nickerson  (Chairman), S.

Concert By The Anyox
Orchestra Enjoyed
The Anyox Amateur Concert Orchestra, held another of their very
enjoyable concerts, in Recreation
Hall last Sunday. It proved to be
even better than the last.
The concert opened with an appropriate march "Let the Fun
Begin", followed by an overture,
'Light Cavalry", which received an
encore. Miss McGuire sang two
very nice songs. A Duet by Mr.
E. Jenkins and Mr. S. Armstrong,
"The Rosary" took the fancy of the
audience. Then followed two selections by the orchestra, "Youth Triumphant", and "The Sidewalks of
New York". Another duet was
then given by S. Steele and VV.
Pinckney on the cornet, which was
well received by the audience. W.

The annual report of the Anyox
General Hospital published in our
last issue, was very interesting
reading. It showed, in addition
to how the financial affairs were
conducted, that it is one of the
greatest assets possessed by the
district. During the past year 394
patients were treated in the Hospital, and 16,261 out-patients were
given relief. Operating expenses
showed a deficit of $15,457,23,
which was met by the Granby Co.
The high efficency maintained for
the care and comfort of the patients
is responsible for the deficit. The
policy of the Granby Co. has
always been to provide the best
service possible for its injured or
sick employees and they cheerfully
meet the annual deficit which must
inevitably result. The Anyox
General Hospital is among the best
equipped on the coast. The
doctors rank high in their profession,
the nursing staff is selected with
great care, and no effort is spared
to restore a patient to normal
health and place him on his feet.
Terms of Toric Transfer
Published In South
That the Toric Mine may shortly
revert to the control of the Britannia Mining and Smelting Co., the
deal with Russo Asiatic Consolidated having failed to materialize, is
the effect of an unofficial report received by The Financial News.
The new deal, it is stated, would
be on somewhat better terms than
that formerly lined up with the
Howe Sound subsidiary, the price
being $500,000 cash, payable in two
and a half years. This would
amount to about $3.75 a share on
the outstanding capital stock of
Toric. Britannia, it is stated, would
assume Toric's indebtedness for
supplies etc., amounting to about
$39,000. A. C. H. Gerhardi, man
ager, and F. W. Bernard, presi
dent, of Toric, are reported to be

The price of copper is still soaring, and it is hoped it will continue
to soar and then hold its price for
a few years. Copper companies
and their employees have paid fancy
prices for every commodity used
during the past fourteen years, and
copper seemed to be the only
commodity that failed to respond
to the upward price flight. The
tide has now turned and the producers of copper, capital and labor,
are making a little extra money.

Noranda Has Big
Tonnage High Grade
The annual report of Noranda
Mines for the year 1928 will be
viewed generally as a very conservative one under existing conditions.
The estimates of ore reserves of a
valuation of $79,340,000 are based
on copper at 15 cents a pound as
compared with current prices of
approximately 20 cents. Conservative treatment is evident also in the
estimate of 7.31 per cent copper
and $3.68 gold as the average of
the ore reserve, considering the
fact that the average grade of ore
smelted last year ran 6.52 per cent,
copper and $3.82 gold and that
practically all the ore smelted last
year came from the upper or lean

Huge Capital Invested
In Canadian Mines
Carefully prepared statistics show
that over $700,000,000 is invested
in Canada's operating mineral inter-
prises and the net income annually
from sales of products of the mines
exceeds one-third of the total investment, according to a bulletin issued
by C. M. Oliver & Co.
In 1922 the total capital employed in Canada's mining industry was
$578,000,000. By 1927 this had
' increased to $706,000,000.
During these five years the net
income from sales had risen from
$194,000,000 to $248,000,000,
equivalent in 1927 to over 35 per
cent of the total investment.
With such results being obtained
through investments in Canadian
mining enterprises, is it any wonder
that the mining capital is now flowing into this country from all parts
of the world? the bulletin adds.
Up to a year or two ago, however,
the large bulk of this flood of mining capital found its way into Quebec, Ontario and Northern Manitoba, and.British Columbia—without
doubt the richest mineral area on
this continent—is just beginning to
receive a portion of its share of this
golden stream.
Although somewhat belated, it is
becoming increasingly evident that
this section of the Dominion is today the cynosure of those interested
in mining development, British Columbians who have recently returned
from sojourns in the South and
East reporting that the fame of
this province's wonderfully rich
mineral deposits is the theme of
conversation from New York to
Los Angeles, and from Winnipeg
to New Orleans.
