A slump mill Is to he liuilt.linmediately
bv this company. An experienced
engineer bus been thoroughly examining the pi opcrty for llie compnny, to
determine whether it is iidvisable to
erect a-IO-stamp mill, or one of smaller
capacity, This mill is lo In* built nn
lhe Okanagan river, one ,and one-hall
miles from tiie mine, and tiie ore will

one lung grade, tiie cost of transport-
iiri.>ii will lie very small,

On the "D, A" is a vein aboul 20
Inches wide, with a puy-sireuk of 4 to
12 inches; from tnis 8,053 lbs. of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103,16 gold per ton, silver 7-1 7-10 ozs.,
and 2 per eenl, lead. A tunnel is lieing
driven on this vein from whicli ore is
lieing taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) currying galena
and pyrites.
Tlie "G. A. R." has a 30-foot shaft,
sunk on a 2-fool vein, heavily mineralized with an Intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, guleua, blende and
silverglauee. Thellnesl.piei'esiil'wiresil-
verfniind un HnuudnryCreek were taken
from this shall. Aveiage assays frum
different plan's across the vein gave
$8.00 gnld, all nzv, sliver| also $8.00
gnld and 130 nzs, silver uud one, lhe
Ial est rel urn—$15.05 gold and 11)0 1-5
ozs, silver per Ion.
On lhe "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
quarlz vein, mineralized willi iron
pyrites. This vein has lieen opened
up by cross-cuts on the surface for 500
feet. A nairnwer vein luis been
opened up, being one foot wide, currying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs inlo llie main ledge as a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 feet lias been
driven. Average assays gave *H"3 gold
and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $40,36 gold
171 ozs. silver, 2 pel cent, clipper
The "O. B." has two distinct veins
one 23 feel, wide which, from its strike
and general character wuuld seem lo
he the same vein as that un the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
been (Imu* to make Ibis conclusive,
The second vein has at, present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values In gold from $4.00
to $170,53, while a conservative sampling by Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E. guye
$2IMX) In gold.
On I he "8. 11. B." are two converging veins of copper and irun pyrites,
mi which wnrk is now being done, An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
1(1} nzs.. nipper 11.I'll per cent., or
$1(1.-11 for all values,
The "Fred  D." was   located ill De
(•ember. 1895, more us gr I for a
basis fnr mining operations for the
olher claims than for its presenl value,
although there is little doubt thai the
large vein on the O. B. runs through
it. There is a small vein nf galena on
litis claim,
The "S, F." lies I .el weed the (I.A. II
and D.A.,in the direction ol tlie strike
on lhe G. A. R. vein. This locution bus

The "J. A. C," has a large irnn-
cnpplng running through il from the
Anaconda, at a deplh nl'ii few feel.
The ore carries a considerable percentage of of copper and $10 in gnld.
