SIMPLE ORE TESTS.
Tile following simple tests will sliuw
whether un ore carries any precious
metals. Afterwards samples ut Ihe
ruck should lie assayed to ascertain Ihe
amount of value per ton:
Guld—Powder; roast if sulphurels
ure present; grind very fine and wash
. in pan or spoon; examine wilh lenB;
yellow particles, not soluble In nitric
acid. The color of pure gold is height
yellow, tinged with red. Gnld may
he distinguished from all nther uietals
or alloys by the following simple tests:
It is yellow, malleable, not acted upon
by nitric acid.
Silver—Pure silver is the brightest of
uicliils, iil'n.beautiful white color and
lich lustre.
Cloride nf silver—If suspected in a
pulp harshly rub a bright and wet
copper cartridge thereon. If a chloride
up chloride-bromide of silver, il. will
whiten the copper. Graphite will thus
whiten copper or gold, but can he
rubbed olf.
Cupper—Afler masting the pulp.
Intimately mix and well kneed with a
like quantity nf salt and cuiidle grease
or any other fat, and cast into the lire
when the characteristic colors—first
blue, then green—will appear. This
I est is better made at. nighl.
Galena—Black zinc blend is nfteii
mistaken for galena. The two may
be distinguished by the infallible sign;
lhe powder of galena is black; lhat uf
blende, brown or yellow.
ANOTHER PASS.
Ill locating a route for a line of railway fro,ii the cast to the Coin,,,bin
river, theeiigineersfoimdthat the most
dillicull porlion nf llieir laborsccntered
within the territory embracing the
divide lietwcen the waters of the Okanagan and Ketlle rivers. How to get
over this divide and drop down into
the Okanagan valley with a good
grade, when run,dug a line froui cast to
west was not an easy matter, but. the
difficulty was overcome liy theengineers
of the Columbia k Western who it is
understood threw their line to the
extreme sntithren point possible without, touching U, S. territory and by
keeping in around Anarchist mountain
made the valley below by deflecting
almost at. right angles or due north,
and limning along I lle wesl face of the
mountain gaining the valley at a point
locally known as Mcintyres, while lhe
engineers of the Victoria, Vanco„ver&
Eastern railway have selected a more
northern route, and piofessed lo Hnd
an extremely practicable pass by following up the main Keltic river, nnd
then ascending one of its western
tributaries which led tn lhe head of
McLean creek, and hy the decent of
this creek gaining the valley at a point
near Okanagan Falls,
A third or alternate route uver
this divide seems lo be a certainty,
as u result of recent explorations by
Messis. Coryell aud James Lynch an*
olher pass has been discovered, which
it would seem escaped Ihe many explorers of the main Keltle river, owing
lo the fad of its being for a certain
distance al. anyrate, whal is known as
a blind pass and therefore not observable as the traveller wends his way up
lhe main Ketlle river.

The properties, which are absolutely

"S. H. B.r" "Big Ledge," "D. A.,"
"0. B.,""S. F.,"'*(l. A. B."iind "J.
A. C,,"b«ingf,illy ehownand explained
in the Map Plan annexed.
UESCKIPTION.

inches wide, with a pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches; from Ihis 8,(131 lbs. of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$1011.15gold per ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cenl.-lead, A tunnel is being
driven on this vein from whicli ore is
being taken. On the same properly is
a larger vein (quart*-.) currying galena
and pyrites.
The "O. A. B." lias a 80-fool shaft,
■link on a 2-foot vein, beayily mineralized wilh an Intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
■ilrerglance, Tbelliit'stpieeesofwiresil*

Iron) this shaft. Aveiuge assays from
different planes nrruss the vein gave
18.00 gold, 50 o-/>„ silver; also $8.00
gold and 150 ozs, silver and one, the
latest, return -$15.05 gold and IHU 4-5
um. silver per ton.
On the "Big l/cdge" is a lO-f.x.l.
quartz vein, mineralized with iron
pyritei, This vein has been opened
up by crisis-cuts on the surface for 600
feet,    A  narrower   vein    has   been

opened up, being oun foot wide, currying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs Into tbe main ledge as a spur, on
Which ll tunnel of 40 feet has been
driven, Average assays gave $1)3 gold
and 11*10 ozs. silver, und $40.86 gold,
17J ozs. silver, 2 per eenl. copper.
The "0. B." baa two distinct veins j
one 25 feel, wide wbich, from its strike
and general character would seem lo
be the snme vein as llml on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
been done to make Ibis conclusive.
The second vein has at present n
width of nearly three feet, Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.1X1
to $170.58, while a conservative sampling by Mr. 8. ,S. Fowler, M, E. gnye
$20.00 in gold,
On Iho "8, H. B." are two converging veins of copper and iron pyrites,
on which work is now being done. An
average assay gave, gold $1,50, silver
lilj ozs., copper 11,1X1 per cent., or
$40.44 for all values.
The "Fred D,"was located in December, 181)5, more as ground for n
basis for mining operations for the
olher claims than for its present value,
although lliere is liltle doubt that the
large vein on the O. B. runs through
it. There is a small vein of galena ou
this claim.
The "8. F." Ilea I -el weed the G. A. R,
and 11, A., in Ihu direcl ion of lhe strike
on thud. A, B. vein, This locution bus
been made un a vein of pyrrliolite,

rapping running through It from the
Anaeonda, at a depth of a few feet,
lbe ore carries a considerable percentage of of copper and $10 in gold.
