The Denver Mining Review hns the
following fact to relate, as to what is
lieing done hy Mr. Snydum to prove to
the outside world thnt Boundary creek
is not only ricli in its abundance of
mineral, but in quality ns well, ns the
following assays made by nssayers at
different points on the other side of
the line will tend to show:
"Mr. E. P. Siiyditin, for many years
well known in mining circles in Colorado, is now at the St. James Hotel in
this city, as mentioned in last week's
Review, for trie purpose of Interesting
{•iipilitl in the Yule Mining district, on
Boundary Creek, British Columbia.
This district is about 160 miles from
Spokane, Wash., from whence it Is
reached by way of the Spokane k
Northern railroad, 1(12 miles, to Marcus, Wash,, where connection is made
with a stage line to Boundary Falls, in
the heart of the distriet, a distance of
about 50 miles.
Mr. Stiydam has on exhibition samples, generally a snckfiill in each instance, of ores from 30 different lodes
wil bin a radius uf ten miles, including
Atwood's, Skylark, Copper, Deadwood,
Greenwood, Summit, Smith's, the
Helen, Douglas and White's camps.
Between 160 and 200 claims have been
recorded within this radius. The veins
run all the way from six inches to 100
feet wide, many of them being 20 feet
and upwards in width, Mr, Snydum
has taken ore from at least 60 claims,
Boundary Falls is situated at an altitude of 2,100 feet above sea level, while
the mines are generally 100 to 250 feet
higher. The district lies among the
foothills along the western slope of the
main range, and, abounds in timber,
lieing at the same time surrounded
with good agricultural valleys.
Mr. Suydain has a large number of
assayers' certificates. • Copper tests hi
Butte, Montana, upon some of the
samples showed from 20 to 60 per cent,
in copper.
Assays of 37 samples hy one assayer
average $81.67 per ton in gold.
Thirty-four assays by another office
show an average of $28.21 in gnld.
Thirty-live assays by Mr. Haas, Midway, average $23.66 in gold.
The average of 22 assays hy still an
other assayers showed $88 gold.
The above mentioned assays were all
of samples brought in by prospectors
at work hi the district.
Nineteen assays of ore from the Skylark lode averaged $25 in gold and 178
ounces in silver, while 11} tons of ore
shipped to Tacoma ran 218 ounces silver and $20 in gold ; 20 tons ran 108
ounces silver and $10 in gold; 30 tons
run 160 ounces silver and 1 ounce in
gold.

The prominence given to the Cyanide process in the columns of the Advance has heen the means of drawing
the attention of mining men more generally to this, what may now be considered beyond a doubt the most feasible, and at the same time cheapest
method of treating, at least some of
the ores to he found in our own and
other mining camps in British Columbia, America and other countries. It
has always been a pleasure to chronicle the achievements of this process
of extracting gold, as we believe that it
holds the key thnt will ultimately un
lock the treasure house in which mil
lions of gold and silver lie at the present time hurled in low grade ores,
thereby adding immensely to the
world's output of the precious m. litis.
Below we give results as regards percentage of extraction and cost of treatment uf some samples of. ore recently
sent to the coast, being as follows:
No. 208, 170 lbs. tested, assay, gold.
0 dwts., 3 grs,, from this was extracted
00,5 per cent, at a cost per ton of $2.50;
No. 209,50 lbs. tested, assay, gold, 1 oz,
15 dwts, 22 grs. per ton, silver, 18 oz.
14 dwts., 8 grs, per ton, from this was
extracted 80.0 per cent of the silver
contained and 01.7 per cent nf
the gold, at a cost of $1.50
per ton ; No, 210, 50 lbs, tested, assay,
gold, 4 dwts. per ton, silver 37 oz. 8
dwts. 0 grs, per ton, from this Ihe extraction was 84 per cent of silver contained and06.1) per cent of the gold, at
a cost of $2,50 per ton. The operator,
Mr. Pellew Harvey, says; ' With
these ores, in most of your section, I
found no difficulty in treatment, and
think were we to operate on larger
parcels, the results would lie even more
satisfactory, You will be interested
in knowing that our extraction in
Africa for ono month, and In one section of that great mineral country,
amounts to over 200,000 ounces of fine
gold. The average assay of the material put through the mills doee not
exceed $4.15, so there is every possibility of the ores of British Columbia being of great value yet,"
We now present to our readers ex
tracts from a report in a went number of the Statist, in which ll isclaiined
Improvements have been discovered
which will still further enhance the
value of the working qualities of the
said process.   Read the fullowing:
For the benefit of the uninitiated,
we may set out the rudimentary process in gold milling. The rock containing gold is extracted from the earth,
crushed, and then powdered by stamps
to about tbe fineness uf flour. During
the pounding process water carries olf
the powder—in a shape like niiid-over
copper plates coated with mercury.
Mercury hus an nfHuity fur gold; the
precious metal in the "mud" is caught
on the plates, ami the residue, supposed to be earl h, but always containing In this stage some portion of gold
passes away, Years age the "mud"
after it had passed over the plates was
considered as waste ■ now it Is carefully kept for the extraction of the remaining gold In it. The waste thut
was is called tailings; and, according
to the nature of the original rock,
whether it contains much pyrites or
melal other I ban gold, the tailings are
rich or otherwise in the gold remaining. There i? also a sort of surface
scum known as "slimes," containing a
considerable amount of gold In very
line particles, that floats on the top,
and is not brought into contact with
the plates. These slimes, as regards
Transvaal mines generally, we are informed, range between 25 and 35 per
cent of the total that is passed over the
plates.  We have thus :—
1, The direct results of milling over
the plates,
2, A residuum of gold lefl In the
tailings.
3, A residuum of gold left in the
slimes,
For the extraction of gold In the tailings the most efficient process so far
knuwn is the cyanide process, whereby
a weak solution of cyanide of potassium in water) is allowed to percolate
through the sand-like tailings, the
action of the cyanide dissolving the
gold just the same as water does sugar.
The solution, with the dissolved gold,
has hitherto lieen permitted to pass
over zinc shavings, to which the gnld
adheres and Is collected. Many attempts have been made in the past to
get at the gold contained in the slimes,
but nothing has yet been found prnctU .
cable in the way of extracting it.
We this week visited the office of
Mr, Suliiiiin, who claims to have discovered a process for more rapidly
dealing with tailings, und for extracting the gold from the hitherto useless
slimes, We were first shown Ihe marvellous effect of the addition nf an
infinite-unnl uinoiint of bromide of
cyanogen lo a very weak solution of
cyanide of potassium. This is somewhat technical lo the uninitiated, hut
will be appreciated by those who have
closely followed the subject. To proceed. Placing an equal quantity of
gold-leaf in two test tubes, one containing the ordinary cyanide solution,
and the other solutiun, with the addition of a very small pieceof bromide, the
tubes being.agitated showed quick %c-
tion in No. 2 and slow action in No, 1.
Then, in No, 2 tube there was placed a
small quantity of very finely powdered
zinc, mixed with water, The zinc
quickly precipitated, dragging with it
the dissolved gold. The importance of
this rapidity of treatment will be readily recognized by experts. It is putting
it mildly, we believe, when we say
that the new discovery means the
ability to perform iu a day what has
hitherto taken a week or ten days,
The next experiment shown was in
connection wilh slimes, Slimes are
like clay—practically impervious to
percolation, In a test-tube three-
fourths filled with water a pieceof
gold-leaf was placed, and the tube agitated, The gold-leaf broke into particles and flouted on the top of the
water. This represented what float
gold means in slimes. However-strong
a solution might lie it would never dissolve tho gold that floated and was not
immersed, There is what is termed a
surface tension which holds- up the
float gold above any liquid. The addition of a trifle of soap solution destroys
this tension, brings the float-gold just
under the surface, und, of course, It Is
Immediately seized and acted upon hy
any cyanide solution, Another experiment was that some dry slimes In
powder, which looked like snelf, was
put into a lube, with some very weak
cyanide solution. To It was added a
trifle of soap solution and then some
lime. Immediately a Ilocculcnt deposit sank, snd we understood that the
clear liquid at the top contained the
gold there wns In the dry slimes
treated in the solution, and that only
earthy matter wns precipitated lo I'
bottom, the liquid being drawn off

tho
for
the purpose of extracting  llie gold.
lieneflt, the inventor reprei
would accrue if, at the mill, the water
used in the first instance had a small
addition of soap solution.
We have already trespassed on our
space to giie these interesting details
and need only observe that, it is obvi
oust!) any thinking man that the inventions, if practicable on a large scale,
are of the giealest importance, THE ADVANCE.

Messrs. G. Cook ariU' T. G, McCormick, who- recently dioposed of their

On Monday lost Mr. Parke came
down from C'amp McKin.uey, bringing
with him samples of ore froui the
' Maple Leaf and oiherelaiuis, which are
iiuw lieing 'assayed by oul' local
assayer, Mr, Hans. Quite a lot of
assaying has ln«?n done here recently,
not as nl tii li fur prospectors as for men
like Mr.il'iuy, men who, like hiliiself,
arc looking into ihe merits and dciiier*
its of our mines and ore'bodies,
and the result . is watched with
Interest, not only by those inline*
dinti'ly Interested, hut by all having
any Interest whatever in thii count ey.
The gciilli'iiian ivlio caiticinii'i com*'
puny with Mr. G. B. McAuley Inst
week, Mr. Glover hy name, is one who
has had a large experience in hydraulic and placer mining in Oalifoi-ilia and
throughout the western states. He
has been Identified with some of the
largest companies who have had for
their object the dovls)ng of means for
the saving of flue gold. In some of the
r|ver»wd streams in these territories,
aim is ncnv-ivoout to turn- Ms attention
and lend (he vtUue of his vast experience to the opening up of the hydraulic
property at Rock creek, in whicli it is
understood lie has an interest.
In the Cariboo mine, Camp McKinney, a shaft is being sunk on the lend,
which will prove the property at- a
depth of one .hundred feet la-low the
present workings. This mine has been
a paying proposition from the grass
roots dowi], and is at the present, time
returning handsome dividends to ils
shareholders. Another 100 feet In
depth will represent many thousands
of tons of ore, and if it retains its richness, as at present, and there is no
reason why it should not do so, then
the prospect of future dividends should
create quite a pleasant feeling in those
fortunate enough tu hold shares in the
same. There is some talk of the stamping capacity of the mill being increased, and no doubt this will be carried out some time this summer.
At the Kimberley, Roodeport mine
a 3,000 ton cyanide plant is being
erected, says the South African Mining Journal. It is well known that
the reef Is of a low grade quality, and
only gives 4 or 6 dwts. per ton on the
plates. Rich tailings cannot lie expected from this class of rock, but it. is
supposed thut 11 dwts. will lie obtained
froln Ihem. The mine is developed.
The new shafts opened up to the east
of the property during the last two
years are abandoned, and all the work
is concentrated at the main shaft once
more, The compaiij has a low grade
proposition to face. Some 40,000 tons
of tailings are awaiting treatment, and
everything is well ahead in the mine.
The above gives some idea of the class
of rock that is being worked in far-oif
Africa, Five pennyweights to the ton
represents about $4.60 rock, and out of
this class of ore the company were, able
last,year to pay to the shareholders a'
cash dividend of no less than $375,000-
Will the day ever daivu on British Columbia when low grade properties will
return sueh handsome revenues, The
are is to lie found in this country, but
no doubt will be allowed-to lie -idle until such time as that of a higher grade
has found purchasers.
The Last. Chance mine has passed
away. By this we do not mean it is
dead, but rather that it has passed
away from the prospector into the
hands of capitalists, Captain Burbage,
accompanied by a Mr. Reed, who came
in from Spokane the beginning nf
last iveeek, being the purchasers, The
claim was owned by Messrs, Cook and
McCormick, and In making the deal
the purchasers bought out McCor-
UuH's htilf-ihturcst, for which they
paid cash, and bonded Cook's interest,
paying the sum of .$500 down on the
bond. This claim is located in the Skylark camp, has a two-foot vein at the
bottom of Ihe shaft, in the centre,of
which there is a very high grade pay-
streak, and is of similar character to
that of the famous Skylark claim, from
which many tons of i'ict\nri have been
shipped I o the smelter:' Under a well
directed course of development a great
and profit able future is in store for this
mine.' The purchasers Intend putting
six men to work oh'the claim in the
course of a week or two.
From ils juuctiou with the Okanagan
river to its head Wafers, the Siiuilka*
inci'ii has for many years past, at different points,' and in fact throughout
almost its entire course, yielded up
from its bars, bottom and benches, the
precious treasnrefor, which more particularly at the present time, so many
are eagerly striving, viz., gold. To
suppose, however, that all has been
taken and none remains is to entertain
a fliliaceous idea, as there is little doubt
tint that some of the richest spots, being (inaccessible by ordinary methods,
have yet to be disturbed by modem
machinery, invented for the purpose,
by those alive' to , the necessity of displacing the more crude methods of
mining by appliances invented and designed with this particular object in
view, namely, to do away with rock*
its, sluice luxes, wing,darns, etc., and
to delve down, and recover directly
from tbe^ed rock;, the wealth {hat now
lies hidden,beneath gravel iind boulder
iu some of our rivers and streams,
Such a machine is the new dredger, one
of which is now in operation on the
Ftaser river, na&r. Yoje. .The gold output of British, fioltnrTliia iii the future
will, there is little doubt, owe much to
these machines for its increase, and under these circumstances it is
to be deplored that the representative, Capt, 11. Finch, nf the
company, owning and operating
the same, was unable when recently
.looking up new fields to prospect, or
rather river bottoms, could not have
secured ground on the above river,
somewhere iiIkivc the forks of the Tu*
luincen with the south fork .near Granite Creek, Apart from Ilia fact, thai
many thousands of dollars hare been
taken'hilt of nllieer1 clnluts'at this poiul,
thereby proving conclusively that gold
existed in piiyiug quantities ou Ihe
river Imnks and lienches, there is another misiin that lends its weight lo
the cotlvlctloh that vast stores of wealt It
lie on Ihe river bottom, and ' 1ml ia as
Dj1. Dawson has ejf-pi-essed, it, the
agency lent* to'the congregation nf
gold at this point, hy the porphyry
dyke which intersects and lias been
cut lliriiugli bv the river, thereby being directly responsible for the great
deposits of gold to lie found there. It
is to be hoped that thecaptain's disappointing experience at not being able
to secure ground in that section may
not be repeated in others, ns every dollar's Worth' of gold produced at a profit,means increased wealth to the province mid prosperity to her people,

mxetSM.1Ztr.'4~* The Rosslaud Miner, the first nuni-
her of which was issued on Saturday,
the 2nd inst., is a journal devoted, so
reads an editorial notice, to chronicling
the mining news of Trail creek, and to
recording the doings of the people of
lliissliiml. Very ably are these intentions carried out in the initial number, as the following description, dipt
from its pages, of the discovery and
growth of Trail creek will show:
The first known discovery of mineral
ill what is now Trail Creek district was
made In the summer of 1887 liy a party
of prospectors from Rock Creek, in
Yale district. They returned to Ruck
Creek and had samples of the ore tested by John W. Renile, who was in that
camp on the lookout for copper ptop-
ertles. The ore ran high in silver, and
it got noised about that a rich And bad
been made, but the locality was kept,
bo secret that it was with Bproo (MB*
cully that the trail nf George Bowman
and George Layson, the discoverers of
the find, was found two weeks later by
n second party, made up of M. D. Ma-
honey, George and Ben Thrasher, Billy
Moore, and another man. Tins party
found indications of mineral, but made
no locations.
In May, 1881), Oliver Bnrdeini and
Newlln Hoover, located the grmirid un
which Bowman and Layson found the
rich ore, and they named the location
the Lily May. In May, 1890, Joe Morris and Joe Bourjaois discovered ore on
Red mountain, about a mile and a half
to the northeast uf Ihe Lily May, and
staked the following claims: the Center Star, War Eagle, Le Roi, Idaho,
and Virginia, At that time Trail
Creek was in Nelson district, and the
locations had to he recorded at Nelson.
On arriving there, the ore was tested
and found to he so low grade that the
discoverers were in doubt as to the
wisdom of recording the claims. Meeting E. 8. Topping, they offered him
the pick of the live locations if he paid
for recording them. Mr. Topping accepted the offer, He then made a trip
to the ground, sampled the croppings
carefully, and returned to Nelson. He
had the samples assayed by the late G
E. R. Ellis, who was one of the best
assayers ever in Kootenay. The Le
Roy ore went 34 and 40 dollars in gold,
the War Eagle, 2i and 26, and the Center Star the same. That front the Virginia only went 10 dollars, Topping
took the Le Roy, and made immediate
preparations to lake np his residence
in the new camp. At that time Mr.
Topping was a citizen of the United
States, and he was wont to say " Trail
Creek will be an American camp, and
we'll show you old-fogy Canadians
how to work mines and build towns."
In July, Harry Sherau, Sam Stonge,
Fred Cabana, Sam Creston, Bill Springer, James Maher and Charles Drouin,
reached the district, and of the locations made by them, the Josie, Mountain View, 8t. Elmo, No, 1, Enterprise,
the Yellow Jacket, C. & C„ and Monte
Cristo are yet alive. The Iron Mask
was also located about this time hy E.
S. Topping, Phil Aspinwall, George
Tnnslall, George Sheppard, William
Sheffield, Tom Duffy, Jim Johnson,
Billy Perdue, Ed Stewart, Alec Currie,
Felix Ruel. Joseph Michaud, and
James Reid came next, and among
their locations are the following still
alive i Cliff Columbia, Kootenay, Consolidated St. Elmo, Standard, Iron
Colt, Georgia, Gopher, Zilor and Mayflower. From the latter, ore was obtained that went 120 ounces silver and
12 dollars in gold.
In the fall lO-Stith* of the Le Roy was
bonded to a syndicate of Spokane men
and that winter it was sold outright to
the same syndicate. As soon as bonded work was commenced under the
foreiuonshlp of E. J. Kellle. The first
shipment of ore was made to Butte in
the fall of 1891.
Except the Le Roi, little work other
than assessment was done in 1891 and
1892, A 2600 shipment from the Iron
Mask went 23 dollars in gold j and Durum, k Tanhet shipped seven tons from
the Center Star. In 1893, a wagon road
was built from Trail to the mines, a
distance of seven miles, The huilding
of the rood enabled the Le Roy company to bring in machinery and ship
out ore. In August Brig Atkinson
hauled the lirst load, and he has been
hauling Le Roy ore ever since.
The War Eagle was lirst bonded, in
1892, to Oliver Durant and A. Tarhet.
In 1893, it was bonded to Mr. Pugh of
the Pyritic Smelling Company of San
Francisco, An expert named McMillan
was sent In to examine the property.
And he not only condemned it, hut he
condemned the whole camp, which
caused the Pyritic company to quit.
Iu Octolier of that year It was bonded
to Wakefield, Roberts & Corbin, in
March, 1891, took in I'atsey Clark and
his associates on the bond. The main
tunnel was in about 300 (eet, when the
survoy showed that it was 70-odd feet
to the right of the vein. The ore was
finally reached, and the War Eagle Is a
mine,
The Josie was also bonded several
times, In the spring of 1893, Frank
I,oriiig, got from it ore that asssayed
137 dollars In gold, and he bonded it for
Patsy Clark, Mr, Clark looked
at the property for himself: took samples from which he could only get 8
dollar assays, and he threw up the
bond. Luring then bonded it, aud from
the same samples that Clark got 8-dol*
Iur assays, got assays as high as 40 dol-
art.   He let Ihe Sonne nana brothers
George Sun nemiiii sampled the dump
carefully all summer, but he could
never get more than 20-dollar assays.
In the fall of 1893, Joseph Warner of
Seattle sampled the dump, purchased
it, and made a shipment of 70-odd tons.
He got 43 dollars a ton from Ihe smelter. Assayers, apparently, were unable
to determine tlie value of the ore, Ellis
being the only one whose assays ran
even with the smelting returns.
In 189-1, llie ore shipped from the Le
Roi, War Eagle and Josie was of the
value of 125,000 dollars, and the tonnage that went out of the camp in
January and February of this year is
only a fraction of what it will be ns
soon as the roads are again passable.
The country rock of the district is
mainly syenite. The general trend of
the veins is northwest and southeast,
with the dip to the north. The ore is
pyritite, the giiugue quartz and ciilsite.
The contents of the ore: 50 per cent
iron, 25 per cent sulphur, 3 to 5 copper, 2 ounces gold, ami 3 ounces silver,
In all, about 500 locations have been
made in tlie district, of which 150 are
still alive. Of the 150, about 20 are 900
by 1500 feet, the remainder being 1500
feel square.
MINING   NOTES.
A nurnl'-'i'of men were liruuglit up
lasl week by a Capt. Cubb of Vancouver, to begin ditching on the hydraulic
claims at Granite Creek,
No little excitement has been caused
on Vancouver Island by the alleged
discovery of gold ut Alberni. The
Wellington Enterprise is responsible
for the statement that quartz taken
from the Mountain Rose claim, assayed as high as $900 lo the ton; the lowest result being given at $40,
It is satisfactory to note thai English
capitalists are beginning at Inst to bestir themselves in tlie matter of competing for valuable mining property in
British Columbia, much of which is
being rapidly acquired by the more
enterprising American companies. According to the Montana Reporter, nn
English syndicate, presumably tlie
same that were lately associated with
an extensive purchase at Trail Creek,
are now negotiating for a large placer
ground near Barkerville, B.C., where
miners in 1862 took out 10S pounds of
gold dust in one day from diggings,
where drifts 52 feet to lied rock were
run.
The smelter at Pilot Bay is now reported to he in working order. The
Tribune sapiently remarking upon the
event says: " Not the faintest idea of
tlie importance of this experiment (for
smelting in this province is still un experiment) ever seems to have crossed
the minds of our fellow citizens in Vic.
toria and Vancouver. And yet if it
successful it means tile ultimate establishment of a smelting centre in the
province whose growth will only be
limited by the limits of the province's
mineral resources. , , , Last year the
output of the precious metals from
Smith Africa was more than double
in value the total exports of the whole
country besides. If anyone had prophesied such a thing to a Cape sheep farmer a few years ago, the farmer would
assuredly have thought him mad, It
is the same here now. The mining districts are the Inil end of creation to the
cosmopolitan population of the British
Columbia coast. But the tail will wag
the provincial dog just the same, and
that before very many years either."
