Mining Journal liy E. Jacobs.]
The Jewel group of mineral claims
is owned liy tlie Jewel Gold Mines.Ltd.,
a company organized in London, England, with a capital of £00,000 in 00,000
shares of £1 each. Of I hest 00,000 were
Issued us fully paid np, in payment for
the mining properties acquired, 20,000
were subscribed for at par, and the remaining 10,000 ate available for sale or
other disposal for the benefit of the
company whenever deemed desirable.
The group consists of the Jewel,
Debero Grande, Gold Drop nnd Massachusetts claims anil the Imperial and
Exposition fractions, situate about
eight miles north of Greenwood, in the
Kettle River Mining Division, Boundary District, British Coliiniliia. A
Whgon road connects the group with
Greenwood, and another road, which
will give access to the Canadian Pacific
Railway company's riiihvay at Eholt
Junction, four miles distant, is now in
course of construction.
The Jewel und Denero Grande were
the Hist claims in Long Lake eamp to
huve development work of importance
done on them. They were bonded in
1800 hy Mi. Leslie Hill, C. E„ for the
Prospecting .Syndicate of British Coliiniliia. A small steam hoisting plant,
the Hrst, brought into the Boundary
district, wus hauled from Greenwood
to the Jewel in January, 1807;that year
developnienl s were sufficient lo demonstrate I hat i lie Jewel gave promise of
proving u mine that il would pay to
work. Later the Jewel Development
Syndicate wus formed to take over
these ptopei ties, and ii afterwards acquired the other claims in lhe group.
This syndicate spent iilionl $20,000 in
further development und tlie present
larger company wus formed und thi
claims and ull other assets weie tians-
feired to ii fora consideration of 00,000
fully pnid up shares,
To date some OHO lineal feel of sinking anil raising und ubout, 1,000 feel of
cmssi'is i'tg aud drifting h.ive been
done in development of the Jewel, and
this constii nits tlie chief purl of the
Underground work done on ihe group.
The ore occurs ill a fissure vein running
approximately north und south and
varying from Iwo to eight feet in
wiili li, averaging about lliree feet six
inches. The mine has ut different times
be. n examined and reported on by
several well known mining engineers,
one of whom described the vein tilling
or gaiigue as "quartz currying considerable quantities of galena, nine blende,
iron pyrites, and occasionally, in smaller quantities, ruby silver, tellurium
anil tellurides of gold and silver,whilst
free gold is of exceedingly rare occur
rence,"
The southern part nf (he Jewclclaim
is for about B00 feet in ii syenite forma
tion and the remaining l.Ouo feet in
quai'tzite. At thp contact the vein ap
penis to fault by a displacement of
almut 300 feet. Most of the above
mentioned work has been dune in the
syenite, where au incline shafl has
been sunk SIS feel, following I lie vein
on its easterly dip of about 15 degrees.
Three levels havo been run. each north
ami south al 120, 830and 830 feet depth
respectively. Theie have opened up a
shoot of ore about 150 feel in length
ami have.made available for extraction,
according to one engineer's estimate,
about 20,000 Ions of ore above the 3S0
foot" level. Underfoot the vein is
strung and has every appearance of
continuing down to a much greater
depth.
When the 2:ill fool level wus the low
est working In the Jewel, lhe mine was
reported on by Mr. D, J. AIcDonald,
who was for a time au Inspector of
Mines for British Colunihia, and afterwards tilled a responsible position with
tlie company then owning the Le Roi
mine, llosjlund, B. C. Mr. MacDonald
carefully sampled thc mine uud obtained assay values in gold and silver,
chiefly gold, ranging from $1 to $Si.
From S5 samples taken from different
parts of tlie mine the average assuy return was $i;i.:i!l per ton of 2,000 Ihs.
Other laboratory tests have confirmed
these values and during the current
year 100 tons of Jewel ore, sent lo the
B.C. Bullion and Reduction company's
works near Rossland for experimental
purposes, showed a value of u fraction
less than $12 per Ion and by calculation
anexiraclioiiof87.fi per cent, by concentration and cyiuiidation of tnilings.
The faulted portion of the vein-
known as the north east vein, in contradistinction to the Jewel vein, as the
southern part is called—outcrops higher up tho hillside, showing for about
1,000 feet in Jewel ground and some
3,000 feet through the Enterprise, Anchor and another claim beyond. Open
cuts and three prospect shafts, two on
the Jewel and one on lhe Enterprise,
show this vein to he strong between
well defined walls, and averaging about
five feet in width. The Enterprise
shaft is down 110 feet. Of the two on
the Jewel one is 80 feet and the other
120 feet and still going down. The latter is to be sunk lo300 feet und a drift
is to be run at Ihe 150 foot level to
prove Ihe vein at lhat depth.
The considerable difference in surface
elevation has encouraged the management lo endeavor lo cut this northeast
vein at a greater depth by means of a
drive from the 230 foot level of the main
workings, Tliis drive has passed
through the fault und is now in the
quartzite, and crosscuts are being run
with the object of intersecting the
faulted vein. Should it be met with on
Ihis level it will give 500 feet of bucks
iu the northern portion of the claim, so
rapid is the i ise on the surface,
The results of the exploitation of this
vein aie being awaited before the determination of the directors to electa
stamp mill and suitable reduction
plant shall be curried into effect.
Should the northeast vein maintain
its strength downwards and the ore
prove of a similar character and value
to that already blocked out in the Jewel vein—and so far indications are
favorable to their doing so—tlie instill
latinn of a 10-stii n-p mill and a cyanide
or other chemical plant will be proceeded with, hut should a contrary result ensue the reduction appliances
will be on u sniuller scale.
The company owns an excellent mill
site, situate close to and ubove Long
Luke, and distant about2,000 feet from
the Jewel main shnfl. The grading for
a mule tramway tn this site, on a six
per cent grade, has already been done,
It is proposed to use electrical power,
to be supplied hy t he Cascade Power „
Light conipany, Ltd., for lhe mill
machinery. The Jewel company has
its own sawmill locaied nt the edge of
the lake, below the slump mill site,
The plant aud machinery in use at
Ihe mine include a 60 horse power horizontal return tubular boiler, a 25 horse
power upright boiler, a 4 drill linml
straight line air compressor, a iSxlO
air receiver, several 3J Litlle (liuiil
machine drills, two 5x5 Bacon hoists,
four station and sinking pumps und
other appliances. This plant is small
but. it has so far been adequate to the
needs of the mine.
A cautious and conservative policy
has been pursued from the outset. The
capital hos lieen restrtebsd to actual
requirements and the ultimate object
of makiug the mine a dividend payer
has been kept steadily ill view. The
development of the mine was ut first
under the direction of Mr. Leslie Hill,
who did excellent work. Enter Mr.
Gilbert Million assumed charge as mine
manager, and he has purposely deferred putting in a mill and other plant
in order to better asceitain the quantity of ore available, so ns lo admit of
the capacity of the mill being adjusted
to the requirements of the mine, nnd
to more accurately determine the
chemical promising best insults in tile
treatment of the ore, The mine bus
an abundant supply of limber and
water, and sufficient ore iu sight to
warrant tlie erection of a small mill,
but this latter notwllhstttllding, Inr
the reasons slutid a slow uml sure nnl"
icy bus been followed, nnd, ton, lhe
provision of Improved facilities as ru.
gutds power, the shipping of concern
(rules, etc., bus been awaited uml development operations have I n timed
accordingly,
 ,.. .
The Ruby.
The work being dune on Ihe Ruby
mineral claim, in .Smith's cump, near
Boundary Falls, is showing np a nien
body of copper ore, In one place the
ore is about four feet in LhlckneBS, nnd
is more solid thnn any Ihal. hnd previously been exposed in quantity on
the clnim. So much preliminary woik
had to be done in the wny of rond-
making, getting in nnd fixing the IB-
horse power port able boiler mul engine,
repniiing buildings, etc, lhat it litis
only been practicable during the past
week or so to get, down to actual prospecting for the ore, One open cut into
the liiil is showing a goml luce of ore, a
lot of which is Icing piled ou the
dump. Another cut, distant about 480
feet, is also in line ore, whilst a third
opening, below the latter nnd appai"
ently on the width rather than the
length of the lead, is the prettiest
looking ore yet found on the claim,
The indications ure that u few weeks'
work will prove the pccuneiice on the
Ruby of me in considerable quantity,
and that another mine will heie be
added to those in the Boundary now
maintaining regular shipments to the
smelters. The Ruby workings are
within a quarter of n mile of the
Standard Pyritio company's smelter,
so lhat when these works shall be in
operation it will he easily praciicuble
ti run an aerial tramway down to
them, the mine workings being at a
much higher level than tlie smelter,
The Ruby is under bond to Detroit,
Michigan, parties, represented by F,
W. Hi.ye», pr*"=ident of the First National Bunk of Detroit, who is expected lo shortly visit the claim. The
same people have also acquired the nil-
joining clninis-lhe Ituby fraction, 95,
Horseshoe nlul Sylvunite. The development work is being done under the
direction of .lames Hamilton, who lind
many years' experience iu opening up
new properties.
Develops Chesaw Claims.
Harry Elliott, Df Spokane, is engaged
in doing assessment work on the Don't
Ciiiutux claim and bus some good
showings, The Don'l Cumtux is located three miles north of Chesaw and
is owned by Spokane people, The
properly wns locaied this spiing mid
this is the first work done ou it. A
shaft has been sunk ou I he ledge which
is now down about 15 feet. The ledga
is four feet wide, giving barely shaft
room, nnd from all appearances is very
rich. No assays bave been made on
ihe rock as yet, but quantities of gnld
and copper ure visible to lhe naked
eye. The walls me well defined und
are free from the ledge.
Tlie claim is lo, iiied in li good sec*
tion, ns near it nre located some of the
best claims in the district. Adjoining
the Don'l Cumtux on the ninth is the
Wild Si raw berry, on whicli a large
iinioinit of development work hns been
done this seiison, while just west is iv
well developed property owned by
Dennis McCnrty, on which it is report*
ed that nn eastern COUipnny look un

MONDAY. OOTOBEIt It, 1001.
Midway is fast becoming an Important shipping centre. West of here is
ii rich mining country aud every pound
of oie thai goes from ihe mines to Ihe
smelters is brought to Midway for
shipment., Up the Weet Fork there
are a number of properties that are
getting in readiness for shipping ore
this coining winter, of these the Carmi
was the most important to ship
ore last winter, although a number of others made small shipments, but this year a number of gond
strikes nave been made of sufficient
importance to warrant the owners
operating them and making steudy
shipments, and each year the number
will be added to until the West Folk
country will he no small factor in
making Midway the shipping centre it
is last liecoming. Cump McKinney,
too, finds Midway its most convenient
shipping point. The famous Caribou
luis hauled ils concentrates here ever
since the completion of the railroad
and this camp will later on place a
number of properties on the shipping
list thus adding considerably to our
shipments, But tlie ore shipments,
f10111 Midway are not confined entirely
lo tins side of the International boundary line, there are, as well, a number
of important mines to the south of
here that are either hauling or getting
in a position to haul their ores here for
shipment to the different smelters.
The mines of the various camps to
the south of here are as yet very few
in comparison to the number there
will he later on, so that taking the
mineral country that is tributary lo
this place with the number of mines
that are hauling ore here for shipment, Midway is fast becoming an
important shipping centre.
THE ROSALIE.
A West Fork   Property   that  Will
Shortly be Commenced.
C. Jii. .Shaw, P. L. S. is at present
engaged in sui.eying u number ol
mineral clninis up the West Fork, in
the vicinity of Beaverdell. Among
others be is surveying the Rosalie on
whieh there is enough «ork done to
obtain a crown grant, which will be
applied torso soon as Mr. Shaw completes the survey.
The Rosalie is situate aboui five
miles north east of Beaverdell and
lies about half way between the Knob
Hill uml Ellsworth. Itwas located in
July WIS by W, E. McBoyle, who
afterwards sold a one half interest in
it to Robert Woods, who turned it in,
among ii number of other claims, to
the Vancouver ond Boundary Creek
Mining and Development Company of
which he is president. It was the first
claim to he located on the mountain
where the Knob Hill is situate, hut
since then nil I be country around there
has been stated.
There are two shafts Bunk on the
property one-10 feet and the other
about 20 feet in deplh, both in ore
which assayed all the way from $10
to $47 in gold.
There are two distinct ledges on the
Rosalie. The one heing twelve feel
wide and assaying from $10 to $12 in
gold; the other, which is hetween
live and six feet in width, has been
traced for 800 feet, and is of good ore,
the lowest assay ever received from
this ledge being $23 while as high as
$47 has heen obtained.

NEWS FROM THE MINES.
coiupanys omce. aiiiu.ii urns,, cue
eon I factors for lhe lodging house und
hoarding house, are also innking excellent headway with these buildings.
Tenders are now being called for a
superintendent's residence, to be start -
ed Immediately- The Snowshoe has
quite a force of men employed stripping the wash off the ledge on the surface, it being the Intention of the management to have another "glory bole"
like ull the other hig Boundary properties. An average of a cur of oie a
day is being shipped from tliis hig surface cut. At the Winnipeg everything
is being put into shape for a hard winter's work. The shaft on the railroad
showing is down ahoul 50 feel, and
from this they are shipping an average
of a cur every two days. An assay oflice is now being (ixed up by Simon
Jacobs, the lineman. From the information obtainable tho Winnipeg is
looking exceedingly well and with half
show ought to mak" a dividend
payer.
Men left last Friday for the Ciirini
mine, wliere work is to be resumed,
It is understood that us soon as tlie
sleighing shall he good enough fur
heavy hauling ore will again he ship
ped to Midway, and taken ihenoe by
rail to Ihe smeller at. (ireenwood. Last
winter the Canni sent down ti8"> tuns
of ore of good grade und preparations
are being mude lu considerably increase
the output this coming winter.
The Oranhy company is prospecting
it big ridge on its Knoh Hill and Gray
Eagle properties, with a view to let ting
the work of removing the surplus debris on contract, preliminary to considerably extending its surface ore
quarrying operations, The area to be
stripped is about HDD feet long by UUU
feet wide. The same company has
commenced work on the Gray Eagle
on the south slope of the hill, iim.iii
1,000 feet south of the southern boundary line of the Knob Hill. An enormous showing of ore outcropping here
is being stripped, the intention being
to open another big quarry and work
northerly towards the Knob Hill quarry on Ihe north slope of the hill, which
is being extended southwards, these
together will give a length of about
2,500 feet along which quarrying can
be done in ore.
At the British Columbia Oopper
company's Mother Lode mine, Dead-
wood camp, a single blast recently
brought down more than 2,00!) tons of
ore. This was in No. 1 quarry and
was the result of firing four deep holes.
Two more slopes were lately opened
at the Ml foot level of this mine, und
at the 300 foot level the new plan of
working—pillar snd stope—has been
fairly started, so thai several staples
will shortly l-e opened in this level as
well. The north drift at tbe800 foot
level is being extended, exploring the
ore body at lhat deplh, and i distance
of 400 feet fnun the main shaft has
now been reached,

It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district. With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you
rich. It is not a speculation, it is an
investment.

BASS FOR B. C.
A Big Shipment ot Fish Coming From
Ontario.
To carry 100,000 Ontario bass across
the comment and transplant them in
the lakes of British Columbia in the vicinity of Vancouver is a task which
the Doniinion government has undertaken to perforin.
Heretofore all efforts to ship bass or
uny other kind of fish of eastern waters
further thai! Manitoba or tlie Territories have been unsuccessful, therefore
the present move is yery much of an
experiment.
For many days Mr. J. Parker and a
staff of men have been engaged fitting
up a car for this purpose. A baggage
car will lie used, tiding the side of which
will lie ranged a couple of dozen barrels
and in tlie center of tlie car tanks for
holding fresh water, The barrels,
whicli will contain the fish, will he
connected by tubes and fresh water
will constantly be pumped through
them from the tanks,
But. the problem which has been perplexing the authorities in the shipping
of fish such a long distance is that of
charging tlie water with sufficient
quantity nf oxygen to maintain the
life of the fish for the live or six days
of tlie journey. A novel device lias
been determined upon, which it is expected will overcome this difficulty.
This device is operated on the principle
of a fanning mill and is intended to
charge the water in wliieh the fish
Hwim with the required oxygen as often
as required.
The fish will be taken from a lake
near Belleville, Ont., and brought from
Belleville to Brockvillc in a large tank
on hoard a scow. At Brockville they
. will lie placed in the car prepared for
them and the car will lie attached to
tho Pacific Express at Carleton Place
and hurried across the continent.
None but healthy minnows aliout two
inches in length will be selected.
It may be stated that tlie device fnr
pumping oxygen into the water was
recently tested by government officials
at one of the tlatineau lakes und proved successful.—Ottawa Journal.
