OllliS  OF  COPPER.
(Contributed.)
The following ftrl it-lf is taken mainly
from a work on tlm "Modern American methods of copper smelting," with
a few noil's milled hearing on tliej
Boundary creeit ore deposits. Although the copper-tearing minerals
an* niinici'iiiis, yet those of commercial
Importance are few in number, uml for
the most pari quite simple in chemical
composition, The following minerals
may he properly considered ores of
copper, and ure found ill the United
Sink's in the lucidities enumerated,
NATIVE METALLIC OOPPKR,
Aside from the extensive occurrence
of this mi'tiil iu the Lake Superior region, and at Santa Rita, New Mexico,
it is found very frequently as a product of decomposition, though seldom
in sufficient quantity to render it of
nny roniinerriul Importance, It is usually remarkaMe for its purity, Considerable native copper is fount) in
some of the ores of the Copper camp,
derived, undoubtedly, from the decomposition of the oxides existing there.
CUPHITI! OR  IlEO   OXIDE   (IF   COPPER
(88.8 per cent copper, 11,2 per cent
oxygen). This mineral occurs solely
as a product of decomposition, und
wHile quite widely distributed, is nowhere un nre of any Importance, except,
in the south-western carbonate mini's,
where it sometimes permeates large
musses of iron oxide, notably increasing their copper Contents, This is the
form in which iniii-.li of the copper ul.
the "Copper" cuinp exists; large
musses of iron oxide permeated more
or less witli copper oxide. Quite large
lumps of this mineral are found in the
Santa Rita mines, and are evidently
the result of oxidation of nodules of
metallic copper, the unaltered centre
lieing usually preserved of greater or
less size. Many of tlie Butte City
veins, us well us Assures throughout
the eastern const range curry this mineral in their Upper portions as u product of the decomposition of sulphide
ores. When greater depth is obtained
on the claims of the Copper camp, it ia
very probable that (he red and -hlnok
oxides will be replaced by sulphide
ores.
HELjlCQNlTE
(Bluck oxide of copper; 70.8 per cell!
copper, 20.2 pel- cent oxygen. This ore,
ivilh its metallic contents, usually in
part replaced liy oxides of iron and
manganese, Is'notquite so widely distributed ns the red oxide, but Is mon.'
frequently found in musses sufficiently
large lo pay for extraction. Its most
remarkable occurrence in the United
States was in the Blue Ridge mines of
Tennessee, North Carolina und Virginia, where the upper portions of the
lied furnished n very large amount of
from 20 to 60 per cent of ore, having
the appearance of melaconite, and giving rise to expectations thnl. were always shattered after passing through
this rich zone und reaching tlie lean,
unaltered pyrites lielow. Melaconite
constitutes a considerable proportion
of the oni of Hie Copper camp.
.MALACHITE
(Copper oxitle 71.0 per cent, carbon dioxide 10.1) per cent, water 8.2 per cent).
This is a much more voidable coin-
pound of copper than the two preceding oxides from a commercial
standpoint, although no mines In the
United Status furnish malachite of
sufficient purity to fit it for ornamental purposes. While it may be
snid to occur in widely disti dinted, bul
ordinarily in non-paying quantities, in
the upper1 decomposed regions of must
copper deposits, lliere are certain localities in wliieli it fin-uis the principal
ore of ibis metal. It Is very seldom
found in a state of purity, but is
mixed wilh various suits of lime nnil
iniignesiii.iixidesof inm nnd manganese,
silica in its various forms of quartz,
chalcedony, Hint, chert and jasper,
and when seemingly present in large
quantities, it often forms only worl li*
less incrustations, or merely colors
green nodules nnd musses of valueless
material, It is then difficult, and in
some cases Impossible, lo form nny
iiccuriile opinion of the ti'iiorof the ore
from lis external appoarance, Both
malachite nnd azurlte ure found in
greater or less quantity in nearly all
of ihe copper veins of the Boundary
creek district, generally in the upper
decomposed parts, mid as u rule forming only uu incrustation,
AZURITE
((H).2 per cent copper oxitle, Si,It per
cent carbon dioxide, 5.2 per eeiil
water). This mineral requires only u
passing notice. Il Is distributed in Ihe
same manner und occurs under ihe
same conditions as its sister curium,
ute, imt. in very inuch smaller amounts,
It occurs In profitable quantities only
iu some of Ihe south-western mines,
Specimens of this mineral nre found
with malachite and rale spar In the
Longfellow mine, exceeding In lienuty
anything of the kind Unit is known
elsewhere in the United Slates.
OHALOOPYRITE
(('upper 34.1 per cent, iron 110.0 per
cent, sulphur85.1 percent). This is by
far the most widely distributed one of
this melal, ami furnishes tlie greater
proportion of the world's copper, li
Occurs principally in the older crystalline rocks, frequently accompanied
with an overwhelming pcrcunluge uf
iron pyrites, in bedded veins iu Newfoundland, Quebec, Vermont, Virginia,
Georgia, Tennessee und Alabama, It
is Ihis ore of cupper that gives Ihe
value to the Greenwood and Summit
ciimps, while it is also I'miutl ou lug.
nun mountain, antl iu other parts of
the distriet. The value of cupper-
bearing fissure veins Mow the limit of
surface decomposition is nearly always
due to Ihis mineral, In some localities
the eliiilcopyrile forms with pyrile, il
fine-gralued mechanical mixture, varying in color willi ils percentage of Copper, from deep yellow lo steel grey.
This substance Is easily recognized under tlm microscope as a mechanical
mixture and not a chemical compound.
In most of the carbonate mines of the
south-west thnl have attained uuy con.
siilei'iilile depth, chulcopyrilc isiilrendy
becoming apparent In minute specks;
nnd it is highly probable tlmt the altered ores near the surface, with their
valuable admixture of ferric oxides,
ure nil due to the decomposition of this
mineral, Tlie siilphiirretteil h'ssim-
vcins nf the Rocky mountains aud
Sierra Nuvadas are seldom free from
ihis mineral, although their value almost Inviolably depends upon theii'
precious mineral contents. The re-
murkiilile purple ores und copper
glance of Butte City, Montana, have
already in several mines, given place
iu depth to Ihe universal yellow sulphide.
CHAI.00t.Tn--
(copper glance; copper 70.7 per cent,
sulphur 20.11 per cent. This ore is seldom found in a condition of perfect
purity. Its valuable component being
frequently in part replaced by iron nnd
other metals, lis copper percentage
rarely falls helow 62, and even at, this
low standard the mineral retains IU
physical i-lnu-uei eristics, n slight
tliiiiiliiiitiiiii of ils liisti'ii being tho principal difference observable, When
high in copper ii greatly resembles thu

mine, Butte, Montana, Several of ihe
oilier Butte mines carry the same mineral, although ns they approach the
western htiunilnries of the district It
gradually passes into bom 1 to or peacock ore. Il is also un iinpiirtiint oro
iu Arizona, New .Mexico, Texas, nud is
the principle ore nf numerous narrow
fissure veins iu Ihe Middle and Atlantic
Slates.
Iitill.MTE
(peacock ore; 65.68 per cent copper,
10,80 per cent iron, 28.0(1 per ceiit sulphur). This is one of the most'bountiful of the tlio sulphurated ores of copper, boiug ciinrnett'i-ized in ils fresh
condition liy u superb' purplish-brown
color, which soon changes on exposure
to the air into every conceivable hue,
from a golden yellow to the deepest
indigo, and from a brilliant green to

Dike copper glance this mineral is fur
from uniform in its composition, varying In richness from 12 In 70 per cent

more than likely to return here in the

On Sunday last divine service was
held here in the afternoon and at
Boundary Falls in the evening, the
Rev. Paton officiating. The announcement given out, that service will be
held on every alternate Sunday at
these places in the future, met with
the approval of both congregations,
Instructions have been received by
Foreman Mclnnis to put on about
a dozen men to build piers, etc., and
get things iu readiness before tbe ice
leaves the river for the completion of
the Ingram bridge over Kettle river
before high water comes. This is good
news and very acceptable to those who
were he-ginning to fear that Ihe Government had allowed this matter to
slip their muinories,
Mr. T, Hardy, anticipating an extensive trade this summer, is making an
extensive addition to his accommodation by erecting a building 110x10 ft. in
size, two storeys, whicli will be used
partly its a stable and partly for storing
ice, which will be put up out, of Btiund-
ttry creek. When summer comes the
weary traveller's horse will find shelter
and rest, and the weary one himself
will be invited to take something cool
and refreshing.
Messrs. Siiydujn and Mclntyre left
Boundary Fulls by Insl Thursday's
stage, bound for Butttv Montana.
Quite a lot of business was transacted
by these gentlemen during their few
days' sojourn in our midst, Tiiey acquired tlie ranch properties of Messrs.
Roy and McCarren, respectively, nt
Boundary Falls. Although the deals
/,re not fully completed as tlie matter
stands, we are justified in stilting that
tlie purchase bus lieen made, To those
able to form an opinion, this transaction is one of great importunce, and
murks the lirst. step iu the niiu-ch of
progress this section is destined to experience I his summer.
Mr. W. W. Gibbs of Boundary Fails
is at present, engaged on a number of
assays from some -of the principal claims
in the camps. This gentleman has discarded tlie charcoal furnace, he having
received lasl. week one of tlie Hoskin
patent gasoline burners, Tills apparatus, which is a great renovation on the
old method, is a tank or receiver in
which oil is stored, and into which air
is pumped under great pressure, and
discharged from Hie same forming a
minute jet of gasoline and air commingled together, This is 'brown into
a receiver, in which it is ignited, and
tlie result is a very powerful flame, Hie
intensity of which can be regulated at
tlie will of the operator, The advantage il. has over the old method of using
charcoal is the less amount of lime it
requires to do the same amount of
work j the cost, which is about one-
half that of charcoal, and its cleanliness and freedom from smoke', and tlie
perfect regularity with whicli heat can
lie applied to t bo matter under experiment.
MINING  NOTES.
II, is reported I hut development work
on the Goldrod, Douglas camp, bus disclosed a fine ledge of high grade ore.
This claim was purchased last fall by
Mr. J. B. Boss, antl if tlie repott proves
BPrVect lie may be congratulated on his
good fortune.
The concentrates at Camp McKinney
will probably be treated on the spot by
cyanide. A small test shipment will
shortly be made to Vancouver. Mr.
Bliven of Loomiston states that Camp
McKinney concentrates can be treated
very cheaply liy his cyanide process,
hut it has uot been patented in Canada, though it has been in the States,
Messrs. Suydam and Mclntyre have
bonded the Gem claim in Deadwood
camp. Messrs. W. McCormick and J.
Punii are the owners. Under the bond
certain improvements have to lie made
on the claim, which are now being carried out by the owners. This is a very-
promising property, and in the future
will give a good account of itself. The
terms under which the bond was exe-
■Pllfcd hnvp not transpired,   Other in
terests in the same camp were secured
by the foregoing parties, hut at present are not open to publication,
The Empire claim nt Fairview, fur
which Mr. Kline is taking out a cer-
tilicate of improvements, lies close to
the wagon road to Penticton, und
about one mile from the Gulden Gate
hotel. It has a lend about three and
one half feel witle, running north and
south, which is traceable, nearly tbe
entice length of the claim, Development consists principally of surface
stripping. Some line free gold specimens have been taken out of it. Mr.
Kline hopes lo bring in capital to put.
this property in shape for working on
his return to the camp,
Mr. W. T. Smith, who has been
superintending the operations on Ihe
Emma claim, Siiminil camp, for Messrs.
iferel k Afldgeh, left un Wednesday's
stage fin-Spokane. Before leaving he
staled ihal. btieshafl being sunk on the
claim was non down some fifty feet,
showing a magnificent body of ore. It.
is the intention now to run drifts fnnn
the bottom of the shaft ou lbe ledge,
also to cross-cut it, so us to determine
the width nt, tliis depth (the surface
showing awldth of some SO nr 40 feet)
antl then to continue I he sinking of llie
shaft, some 50 feet or more.
A visitor lo Fairview at the presenl
time can see one of the great est
"snaps" in quartz mining to be seen
anywhere, The quartz is being literally quarried out by four men, who
manage to keep tlie ten-stamp mill
supplied wilh ore. The owners, Man*
gotl and McEiichron, slate that they
are getting better returns from the
present run than from that made last
winter. It is a pleasure to see that
they are employing old time Fairview
men, who have "stayed with" the
camp, and not cheap hands. Steve
and Danny deserve to do well anywhere.
Development work on the Last
Chance, Skylark camp, shows the
claim to be improving with every foot
in depth. The shaft is now down some
45 feet and has a ledge two feet wide at
tlie bottom, in the centre of which is a
high grade pay streak of eight or ten
inches, samples from which ou asssay
.run so high in silver and gold that it
may be classed with the high grade
shipping ore for which this section is
now Incoming famous. Messrs. G.
Cook and F. G. McCormick, the owners, are carrying on tlie development
work and are greatly pleased with the
appearance t,f their property.
Mr. Elliot lias two men sinking on
the Smuggler, Fairview, and the shaft
—11 feet by I) feel, is now down 40 feet.
The ore sleeps Improving witli depth
and tlie vein shows no signs of pinching. The average of a number of
assays of this rock, which is a free-
milling proposition, gives $22 in gold.
Another vein, which shows up four
feel between walls of well mineralized
quartz, bus lately been opened up on
the same claim) which is one of Ihe fifty
odd acre "sheep ranches") a quarter of
a mile lo tlie north of Ihe shaft, There
Is little doubt that Mr, Elliot bus got
hold of a good thing in tlie Smuggler,

FEASTING AND DANCING.
A correspondent writing says that
never in tlie history of Kettle river was
such a jolly time spent as those experienced who took part iu the dunces
given on Friday and Saturday of
last week ut the hospitable residence
of Mr. und Mrs. Spraggett of Grand
Prairie. It was tbe intention that the
parly should be for one evening only,
but so thoroughly was tlie enjoyment
of good music, gond daiicingand a true
hospitality appreciated, that t heir hosts
were prevailed upon to extend thelren-
tertaiiiiiient to the second evening.
This is one of Ihe many gatherings of
this winter Hint will live long in the
memories of those who took part
therein.
On Monday of this week a surprise
party stormed the residence of two of
Grand Prairie's most prominent settlers, Messrs. Mclnnis k Vauglian, and
encountering very little resistance, in
fact receiving a hearty welcome, took
possession, and whiled away a few
hours of great enjoyment, much to the
delight, of the visitors and their hosts.

SEEKING  A  SMELTER  SITE.
The officials of the Kansas City Consolidated Smelling k Refining Co, have
about decided lo erect a smelting plant
somewhere in the Northwest that they
may lie better equipped to handle the
ores of Ibis country.
If it has lieen decided to erect a
smelter in this country Ihe only thing
to be considered is the most convenient point of location for the plant.
Without question Spokane presents
that feature to a marked degree; in
fact as no other point does. Accessible from every point of the compass
and every mining camp of the Northwest, nearer liy several hundred miles
to the Slocan, Okaungaii, Boundary,
Fairview, Comr d^Vlenes, Pend
d'Oreiile and many of the less developed camps than any other accessible
point, makes it a phenominally favorable location for the nextgreat smelter
centre on the continent. Our citizens
should take this matter up, our honorable mayor and Immigration Bureau
should at once send an invitation to
the Kansas City folks to visit Spokane
and look it over. Tlie company has a
cash capital of $2,500,000.-N.-W. Mining Review,
KELOWNA NOTES.
(From our own correspondent!
Kelowna. .Ian, 27.—The Mission
Valley Municipality bus not yet been
gazetted, Ihe reason beipg given by
tlie Provincial Secretary's department
when lust heard from, that the Lieutenant Governor had not, yet, signed
the Order in Council, being still absent
from tbe Province. There is no doubt
however of its being created, As soon
as the Order in Council js signed whicli
cannot well he very long now. Already u good deal of quiet canvassing
lias been guiiiK on in the valley and
the number of aspiring candidates for
municipal honors are by no means few.
For Reeve, the names uf the following
gentlemen have been mentioned, but
It is by no means certain that any of
liieiii wil! .-aniiil-'iiii thenouiiiuitioiiday.
II. Lequime, J. Crnzler, W. 1). Holism,

Mr. F. Ellis Is however pretty certain
to represent the new hench community.
Great preparations are being made
for ii concert got up by Mr, L. Pritlhuni
in aid of lbe English church, which
will lake place here on the sixth of
February.
Though things are quiet in the valley just at present any visitor cannot
help being struck by the marked improvements whicli have been made
during tlie past year on nearly almost
all the ranches and the gradual hul
steady growth of Kujowna, New residences have taken the place of homely shacks, and a great, deal of new land
has been cleared and fenced in preparation for next, season's operations,
Times may lie dull but local hind owners have by no means lost heart and
are confident that better things are in
store for those who "stay with" the
settlement,
There is remarkably little snow
around here: in fact the roads are quite
bare, The weather is also on the
whole peeuliiiry mild for the time of
the year.
The curling club hns now quite a
large membership and a number of
matches are played at the rink on the
pond near Mr. Sterlings residence, by
tlie hitters kind permission. One recently played between the married and
single men resulted in a victory for the
former.
The church nf England committee
propose to commence building a church.
The sit* has not yet been chosen and is
at present a bone of contention. Liberal subscriptions in aid of the building
fund have been promised from friends
in England and from the S. I5. G. At
present Rev. Mr. Green holds service
here in tlie schoolhouse only once a
month.
Mr. Stirling's root house still holds
front rank in the valley, being capable
of holding over 150 tons of potatoes.
The next thing in approach to it is Mr.
Cozorso's onion house which contains
over 15 tons of onions hung on strings.
With low carload rates to the coast,
onion and potato farming would pay
splendidly in this valley.

(101,11 MINING COMPANY ORGANIZED
The following company, under the
title of the "Anglo-Canadian Gold
Mining'Syndicate, has lieen organized
in New- Westminster, whose field of
peratious will be on the Slmilkameen
river, with a capital of $250,000, divided
Into 50,000 shares of $5 each, The syn-
licate is m possession of 320 acres of
gold-bearinggravelly benches on the
south fork of the Siinilkaineen river,
and adjacent to the Anglo-American
Gold and Platinum Co, Ample water
can be had from the Siinilkaineen
river to wash at least 0,000 cubic yards
per day, and the cost, of bringing the
water on the land is estimated at $40,-
000. An engineer has been employed
to make a thorough prospect of the
benches, and if the results are satisfactory, the work of development will he
proceeded with at onco. The fact Unit
the claims of this syndicate adjoin
(hose of the Anglo-American Company, which have already yielded very
rich returns, would indicate that their
location could not be more desirable.
That, the ground is gold-bearing has
already been proved by a rough pros

of the company arc residents of Westminster. Applications for stock largely
