Red Bluff Property Will
Be Developed
Some development work will be
done on the Red Bluff property
this year by the newly formed syndicate stated Mr. J. N. McPhee,
who arrived in town on Wednesday from Butedale.
Mr. McPhee stated that not as
much will be done this year as originally planned. But a commencement will be made as early as
possible, and much valuable information is expected to be obtained.
The Red Bluff Mining Syndicate
was formed during the early part
of the year for the purpose of developing the property. It is situated about seven miles north-east
of Alice Arm, aud indications are
good for the development of a big
tonnage of copper ore.
During the past few months Mr.
McPhee has received enquiries from
several mining companies anxious
to examine the property.

The Goldkeish mine produced
13,111 tons of silica for the AnyoxJ
smelter. The values derived consisted of over 1000 ozs. gold, 6000
silver. Both of the above-mentioned properties were closed down
during the year. Their placb will
be taken by the Quartz Point mine
and Bonanza, both of which are
situated close to Anyox smelter.

Being Moved
The buildings of Alice Arm that
are not on streets are being gradually brought into line to conform
with the street system that exists.
The latest building to be moved is
the old bank building; owned by

Moving has been carried on during
the past few days. It will be
located on First Avenue, near T.
W. Falconer's store and opposite
G. W. Bruggy's store.
If several more buildings in the
lower part of the town were moved
onto streets it would greatly improve the appearance of the town. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD.   Friday,    June   28,    1929

By value, the various products
of the mineral industry of British
Columbia produced in 1928 are
ranked in the following order:
Copper, lead, coal, zinc, silver,
gold, structural materials, miscellaneous metals and minerals. The
quantities of copper, lead and zinc
produced in 1928 were the highest in the history of roininf in the
Copper-mining recorded a pros"
perous year in 1928. The production for 1928 was 97,908,316
lb., valued at $14,265,242. This
is a record output, but is a lower
valuation than recorded in the three
war years, 1916, 1917, and 1918,
when the price of copper was
nearly double that in 1928. The
sharp advance in the price of copper towards the close of the year
is reflected in the average yearly
price, being 14.57 cents, as compared with 12.92 cents in 1927.
During recent years the large copper mines of the Province have
been brought up to a high state of
efficiency, with modern equipment
resulting in lower costs. With an
assured outlook for the price of
copper metal to stay at 18 cents or
higher for some time to come, the
copper miges of the Province will
make very satisfactory profits. No
expansion of production is expected in 1929 from the three main
producers, but a full year's output
at the rate shown in the last quarter
of 1928 is expected, which would
result in a production somewhat in
excess of 100,000,000 lb.
The silver production for 1928
was 10,627,167 oz., valued at
$6,182,461. This output is
slightly greater than in 1927 and
slightly less than in 1926. The
two largest contributors of silver
are the Sullivan and Premier, the
former maintaining its position as
the largest silver producer in Canada.    Approximately 80 per cent.
Development   Speeded
Up On Georgia
Stewart News
Steady progress is being- made
with the freighting and installation
of machinery at the Georgia River
Gold Mines. The Crawford Transfer Company have five men and
fifteen horses engaged in packing
and go-devilling the freight over
the eight miles of trail between
the beach and the mine, a difficult
task during the spring break-up
and their efforts in this direction
are worthy of special mention. At
the mine the engine room site has
been cleared and graded and the
concrete for the engine foundations
is now being poured. The plant,
will consist of two 40 h.p. Petters
oil engines operating two air compressors delivering a total of 350
cubic feet of free per minute. For
the time being work underground
is being carried on by hand and an
average advance of 65 feet per
month is being made on the Southwest vein. The results from this
work obtained so far are considered satisfactory as in the last
hundred feet of drift driven on the
vein, the general average of samples
taken every five feet on the vein is
$39.60 per ton. These values are
chiefly in gold, the silver content
being about 2 oz. to the ton with
lead averaging two per cent.

of the silver production of the
Province comes from mines in
which the silver value is of less
importance than the other metals,
such as gold, copper, lead and
zinc, contained therein.
Of the 6,241,310 tons of ore
mined in 1928, less than 8 per
cent, was treated by direct smelting of the crude ore, the remainder
being first concentrated for the
elimination of waste material.
In general, throughout the mills
of the Province, greater efficiency
was attained in the extraction of
minerals, and in several instances
notably high extractions are being

Music hath charms to soothe the
savage breast, and jazz has now
exercised its well-known effect on
animals, since the deer at Banff
have been listening to the dance
strains from the orchestra at the
Banff Springs Hotel. Three mule
deer were seen the other night listening with astonished ears to the
syncopation within. Both deer and
elk are unusually tame th,is season
and guests are going hunting with
cameras in lfcu of firearms.
Aviation is coming into its own
in Canada and Canadians are becoming thoroughly airminded.
Three airports were opened early
In June at Ottawa, Kingston, and
Hamilton, at which a great assemblage of planes took place and
large crowds witnessed the proceedings. Many took advantage
of the opportunity to send mail and
parcels by air express during these
functions and the Canadian Pacific
Express Company used the planes
to advantage.
Richard Barthelmess, moving picture star, accompanied by his bride,
made a throe-day honeymoon stay
at Banff Springs Hotel early in
June. He says he will be back in
the Pall to get some big game
hunting in the Canadian Rockies.
Dock dues on parcels from Cherbourg are now lifted under an order from the French Government
and there will be consequently a
great increase in despatch of these
parcels from Prance to Canada,
according to word recently received
by the Canadian Pacific Express
Company. Prior to this, parcels
from Prance had to be shipped
from Southampton causing a loss
of a couple of days' time in reaching Canada.
Loans to harbor boards totalling
nearly $30,000,000 to be spent on
programmes of extensions and developments have been approved by
the House of Commons. Of this
amount, ten millions each goes to
Montreal and Vancouver, $5,000,-
000 for Halifax, and balance for
Khree Rivers and Chicoutimi, Quebec.
The average cash income per1
farm house in the Prairie Provinces
was $2,544, exclusive of the value
of seed, feed, meat, vegetables and
other commodities produced and
retained by the farmer for his own
use, according to the Nor' West
Farmer, Canadian farm journal
published at Winnipeg.
The younger generation, we are
often told, is apt to be left to find
its own way around these days, but
not quite to the extent of the
woman who left her 7-months old
baby asleep in the Windsor Street
Station, Montreal, while she went
shopping in the city. It was taken
to the ladies' waiting room and
cared for. Several hours later the
mother returned and was told of its
whereabouts. It was still sleeping
and she decided to have her supper
before »'ie "disturbed" it.
Wheat frpm the Prairie Provinces
of Canada is the finest received in
Germany fr»m any country in the
world, according to Johann Lange,
one of the seven German millers
making a tour of the North American wheat-growing and milling
centres "Canadian mills are second to none, if' mills visited in
Winnipeg may be accepted as representative of Canadian plants,"
said Mr. Lange. 'In operation,
cleanliness and the beauty of the

nothing better since we arrived on

Consolidated To Treat
Big Slag Dumps
Work on the construction of two
large furnaces for the treatment of
lead-smelter slag has been started
at the Tadanac smelter of Consolidated Mining & Smelting, at Trail,
B. C, following the successful
operation of a pilot furnace for several months. Details of the process have not been released, but it
is understood that fuming of the
lead and zinc content of the slag
will be done in huge water-jacketed
furnaces, 10x10 x 20ft, and that
the fumes will be collected in a bag-
house. Those escaping from the
bag-house will be electrically precipitated. The heating is understood
to be by a mixed electrical and
powdered, coal process devised at
the smelter. The slags, which
have been accumulated for several
years, are said to average 15 to 20

Reports from the Naas River indicate that sockeye fishing there is
very fair for the opening of the season, the high boat having taken

Copper Stabilizing  At
Present Price
Several events in the last week or
two have again centred interest on
the coppers. The Anaconda group
announced a curtailment in production of 10 per cent not many weeks
after prominent officials of other
companies had stated that stocks of
the metal were dangerously low
and that output was none too large.
On May 20, copper securities
were particularly weak, Anaconda
dropped over 7 per cent of its value
in one day, Kennecott close to 6
per cent., and Nevada over 4 per
cent. But on the same day Kennecott increased its dividend again,
and the next day Phelps Dodge did
World copper production figures
just released show a daily rate of
6,547 tons in April, the highest in
history, compared with an average
of 5,236 last year and 4,642 tons
the year before. Another step in
vertical integration of the industry
has just been made in the absorption by Kennecott of Chase Brass.
It is no wonder that those interested in copper are somewhat in the
air, without any clear idea of what
to expect.
Certain it is that the urgent
demand that sent copper up to 24c.
a pound less than two months ago
has evaporated, and orders either
here or abroad have not even taxed
the custom smelters to supply. The
situation seems rapidly to be getting
back to that which existed last year,
when the buying was almost entirely for early shipment.—Engineering

Government Will Build
Trails in Northern
Details of the expenditure of
$100,000 by the provincial government on mining trails were discussed at recent conferences between
Hon. VV. A. MacKenzie, minister
of mines, with district mining engineers. One of the important
routes to be opened up will be a
trail from the active mining district
at Stewart into the mineralized area
of the interior.
It is planned to extend the present trail from Stewart up the Bear
River to Meziadin Lake into the
region directly north of the Portland' '
Canal and to connect it with the old
Telegraph Trail at a point known
as Mile 23. Lateral trails east and
west from this main trail will give
access to a mineral belt of which the
possibilities have been stressed by
Dr. Kerr of the geological survey
and by George Clothier and Dr. H.
T. James, former provincial government engineers in the district.
When completed this programme
will open up the entire territory
from Portland Canal to the northern boundary of the province in
which it is believed minerals of en
ormous value exist.
Stock Market Enters Quiet
Summer Season
The Vancouver stock market is
entering the quiet season. July
and August are distinctly the off-
months on all exchanges and usually
the dullness begins to manifest it
self as midsummer approaches.
This is not peculiar to any one
market; it is common to all on the
North American continent. It pertains to bonds as well as stocks, and
is likely to continue to be felt in the
oil stocks as well as in the mines.
