The Cariboo-McKinney Company
Will Shortly
ERECT A CYANIDE PLANT
Por the Treatment of Tailings From
the   Mill - Mine   Never
Looked Better
It. is stiitud nn good authority that
the Cariboo McKinney Co.. of (Jump
McKinney, owning I he famous Oitribno
mine, will shortly erect aeyanide plant
fm- ii-eai ment of the tailings, which
have accumulated at the company's
mill. A representative of the company
is now looking over some of the liest.
cynniile plants in the United States,
for the purpose of ol.tainlng Information ahoul the different makes of cyan
iile plants, anil the information thus
gaiii.il will he used in the selection of
a plant for the OarlllOO.
Heretofore the tailings hnve lieen allowed t.. accumulate, owing to the lark
if facilities for their I real ment. It has
not heen the company's aim to provide
meiins of In at ment for these tailings,
Hilt rather to save all lhat wns possihle
hy amalgamation and concentration,
In order tn do this necessitated a line
ei-ushiiigof the ore I.y Ihe stamps,
whereas If a cyanide plant were in np.
■.ration Ihe gold values nf the tailings
could he extracted without the ore Icing crushed nearly so fine,
Last year there were paid in dividends tn the shareholders $50.(100,
which was nnt as much jis was anticipated. The reasons the dividends did
nm rea.li tlieexpeclationsof ftp shareholders was that many difficulties were
'iieounterd ill Ihe working nf the
mine, which entailed unusual expense.
Had a cyanide plant heen pievinnsly
r eted, extracting the gnld VJilues of
the tailings and permitting the mill to
treata greater tonnage nf ore, the
'Xpectations of the most sanguine
hareholders would have doubtless
heen realized.
The erection of a cyanide plant nt
the Carihoo mine will he carrying out
the idea uf the managing director,
Geo, B, McAulay, who at the last, annual meeting of the conipany said:
'The accumulation of tailings from
ihe mill having liecome so gr at as to
ender necessary further piovision for
their retention, a new clam has heen
constructed SOO feet helow the old dam.
Extensive tests have hem made of
these tailings, and it has lieen ascertained that they carry values ranging
from $2.20 I it $4 SI per ton. The treal ■
ment of these tailings and extraction
if lhe values contained therein liy tlie
cyanide process is a question which
should receive ennsider.it ion at jiii early date, as it has heen demonstrated
that the erection of a cyanide plant for
the treatment of these tailings, and
its operation in connect ion with the
con.pany.s present stamp mill, will add
materially to the company's .-ev.-nne.
My Investigations into the question of
the treatment of ore and tailings I.y
the cyanide process have demonstrated
that Ihe erection of sueli a plant at the
company's mine Kill vlrl unity lie equivalent to an inciease of 100 |>er cent, itl
the capacity of the company's mill.
There having heen up to the presenl
time no provision for lhe saving of
values from tailings, the aim has heen
lo save all that was possihle I.y plate
ainalgamalioii and concentration, and
to leave as litlle as possihle in the mill
tailings. To this end a line crushing
of the ore hy the stamps, yet the mill
tailings as ahove set forth catty con-
siderahle values the extraction of
which is not possihle hy amalgamation
and concentration, Willi the Introduction of a cyanide plant for the
lieattnent. of the tailings, a coarser
crushing of lhe ore would he more advantageous, as all values noi paved in
the stamp mill would he saved liy the
cyanide treatment, the cost of which
would he n.i greater than fnr the saving
of values in (lie present tailings, which
liy reason of a Hue Brushing heing i hus
rendered necessary, douhle the quantity of ore could he run Ihrough the
mill, thus doul.ling its capacity us
ahove stated, and tendering unnecessary any present addition the number
of stamps in operation.
From the ahove report it will he
seen that it, was not the intention of
tlie company al that time to Imth erect
a cyanide plant anil inn-rase the numher of slumps, hut recent development
has disclosed such enormous bodies of
rich ore that it is now the intention of
the company to do In.ill.
The new policy adopted liy the coinpaiiy some time ago, of suspending for
a brief period lhe payment of dividends, and applying the earnings to
the development of the ore chutes and
pin chase of additional plant, wiih a
view lo a more economical working of
the mine, is certain to meet with excellent results, and when sufficient
money has heen expended to put the
mine in a satisfactory condition, and
ihe conipany again declares a dividend,
the Cal'lhoo will no doubt hreak all ils
former records as a dividend payer.
The Carihoo is Ilie only free milling
gold mine among the comparatively
few discovered in Iho province to pay
regular dividends. Last year tliere
were mined and milled lft,28K tons of
ore, yielding 11,400 ounces of gold hul-
lion, and iiii? tons of concentrates, The
teceipts firm the bullion were $100,-
831.85,

Some Pacts About the B. C. Mine, in
Summit Camp.
One of the Important mines of Ihe
Boundary country is the B. ('. mine,
whieh is located on a spur of the 0, P,
B, ahout three miles from Eholt. But
little is said concerning the B.C. ill*
thnugh it has shipped 40,1X10 tons of
nre uf an excellent grade in a little
over a year and lhe rate of production
it present, is aliout 0,000 Ions per
iiioni h. The workings, the machinery,
the huildings and the general arrangement of every thing about the mine
shows that the mine is heing run liy
men who thoroughly understand their
husiness, Tin. main bhafl has reached
ji depth of 4112 feet, ami is single, compartment down lo tlie 150-foot level
and from I here down to the 485-foot il
has thiee compartments. The Intention later on is to widen the shaft all
the way to the surface to the three
compartment si/.e. lu this shufi there
will he room for two cages and a man-
nay. The 100, 200 and 800-foot levels
have been developed i.y an elutto'rate
system of crosscuts and dtifts, and
frnm these three levels ore is now he
ing extruded. The 400-foot level is
just now heing opened up. The ledge
averages aliout !j0 feet in width. The
uie is a lime and quartz gangiie carrying gold, silver and copper. Square
timlier is heing used in timbering, and
lhe workings are limbered throughout
in the most workmanlike manner. At
present some prospecting is heing done
on the lower levels hy means of a
diamond drill. Ahout 100 men aie
employed.
The plant consists of lhe half of a
20dii'l compressor which i.s supplemented hy a three-drill compressor.
Besides this there is an 80 horse power
hoist and the necessary hollers, A
ilouble-tiark tramway leads from the
shaft house to the hunkers, which are
located at the railway. The hunkers
have a capacity of about 500 tons. At
present I hell. C. is compelled to use
liox cars for its ore, which me inconvenient both to load and unload, hut
the management hopes thai in lime
the railway company will furnish
them regular ore cars.
The shaft, house, hunkers, hoarding
house, lunik house, the olllce of the
company and about ten collages const itule the buildings around the B, C.
mine and give it the appearance of a
neat little village, The location is a
most picturesque one, and us the relations bet ween the management of the
mine and the employees ate of Ihe
friendliest possible eharaeter theia is
prohahly no happier mining community in the province than can he found

C. S, Wallis, of Hossland, hassttlt'ted
a force of men at work on his property,
the Ethiopia. Tiie present work .on
sisis of snipping lhe ledge. Work
will lie continued throughout the summer. Laler underground work will hi
commenced, imt. the amount of surface
water to be contended wuh at lhe
present lime makes it advisable to
eouline the immediate work in hand
to the surface,
A force of some Xi men is at work
on the Jewel. Developnienl. is being
curried on extensively under ground
one of the features under way being a
new iM'ti-cninpiirlincut shaft, which is
down a distance of 880 feet. Tlie new
shaft has already reached a depth of
00 feel and good progress is being
made. The mine has 20.00(1 tons of
ore blocked oul, and I he work under
way will substantially increase this
reserve, ll is understood lhat the
conipany proposes to erect a mill at
au early date.
THE POINT
At Which the Marcus-Republic
RE-ENTERS THE STATES
I tallowing the Kettle Kiver lo Curlew,
Thence Along Curlew Creek
to Republic.
There have heen some interesting
developments in railway matters during the past week. Ill last, week's issue we published a telegram ft oui St,
Paul, whicli staled that work wonld
he commenced immediately on the
(Ireat Northern branch from Mat cits
to Republic, but no particulars as lo
the route lakeii hy the load wercuvail-
ui.l"* al that time. During Ihe past
week it, has been officially given out
at .St. Paul that the road will take a
somewhat different route from ihat
generally supposed by most of the
people of this count ry. According to
tin maps and profiles of Ihe new line,
as far as Ihey have been completed,
they show the road stall ing at Marcus,
crossing iheCdhimhia and following the
Kettle river north tor about 20 miles
at a dis,ance of from one half to thiee
miles, It will run direct 15 miles to a
point north of the international boundary line between Grand Porks and
Carson. It will then describe a semicircle, again crossing the boundary
line at Midway, which is about ten
miles west of Nelson, Wash., and
from here it will follow the Keitle
river lo Curlew and then following
Curlew creek lo Republic.
Tliere are several reasons for making
Ihis long detour of the northern conn-
try iu oidei lo reach Republic, hut thn
most important of Ihese is to reach
lhe rich mineral regions of the Bonndary country, which is acknowledged to
he the wealthiest s.-ciiou of Briiish
Columbia, Of course it is impossible
to reach Republic from Marcos by a
lnecl line owing to the insiu-m,unliable harriers encountered in building
over the mountains, but a much shorter line than the one proposed could
and would he built, were lhe Great

enormous traffic this country will have

Dr. A. H. Ledoux an eminent New
York metellurgist, who has recently
been investigating the mineral resources of the Boundary .listrut in an
interview in Spokane a few days ago
mid : "I inn not connected with any
railroad, but I tun certain that there-
ports are absolutely true, that the
road from Marcus tn Republic, hy way
of Grand Forks and Midway, will be
in operation before the end of the
yen-. Before I left New York Mr,
Bill assured methnt the roud would
l.e built, and tliis he latter confirmed
al St. Paul.
The following despatch from Sl,
Paul gives an Idea of the proposed
route.
St. Paul, Minn., June !J4,—Though
the distance from Milieus, Wash., to
Republic is less I Ium III miles, Ihe
Great Northern will lit obliged to
hulkl 88 miles of toad to connect tbe
mining country with the Spokane
Falls* Northern.
Tin- road will start from Marcus,
crossing the Columbia and following
the Kettle Rivet1 north for about '20
miles j.t a dislance of from one ball' to
three miles, lt will run direct lo miles
to a point north of the international
boundary line between (.rand Foiks
and ('arson, ll will then describe a
semicircle, again crossing the boundary line about 10 miles wesl of Nelson,
Wash., again crossing Ihe Kettle river,
keeping close io Otirlew creek and east
of Like Karantip, or Curlew lake,
crossing Klataoos creek aud the San
Poil river to Republic.
"It is an utter impossibility," said
Chief Engineer Stevens, "lo gel, into
tlie Republic country in any other
way. It would be too expensive and
the grade would he too heavy for hauling heavy trains. Again, by milking ;i
long detour lo the north, we touch
other mining legions whicli will af-
foul additional traffic."
The route outlined is approximately
as it will he when completed, but the
engineers tuny change the line for
more feasible routes as the work progresses. Mr. Stevens was over this
route about two months ago.   Some

Vancouver is to have an assay office.
This conies as rat her a surprise to the
people of Vancouver as well as the entire province, especially ns the Hon.
Mr, Fielding, Minister of Finance,  recently staled on the floor of the bouse
thai the location of assay offices wnuld

members of the cabinet had  visited

statement the bankers of Vancouver,
working  in   conjunelion   with   the
lloaidol Trade of tllnl city, succeeded
in changing  the official view of the'
of the case, by raising a fund locally
for the   purchase of uold at   terms
offered in Seattle.   This is ao example
of whal may be accomplished if the

lleceiit    despatches   from Vict..rin
convey the inlelliifcnce that the  linn.
.1. H.  Turner,   Provincial  Treasurer,
has gone east, nml consirtemble speculation is being indulged in in regard
to  the mystery of   his   hurried departure.   Had it lieen any  one other
than Mr.  Tinner, people  would  not
have thought sonicich-of it, hut that
gentleman only a short lime ago an
noiiiiced his avewlnn to a trip across
the continent during the hot weather
and gave  this as his reason for nol
going Id London fo take  up  his  new
duties until autumn.   Fltit it  now appears that this leasnn has lieen given
over to a desire to visit OMaiia Immediately,   This much is known thnt
the Dominion guvertimeiithas become
disgusted .villi the scandalous options
of  the Provincial governiuenl ; that
I hei e are several differences of opinion
hetween litem, ami il. looks ver. much
as if Mr. Turner's visit, were for the
purpose uf attempting an amicable adjustment of those differences, and thus
prevent an open disag ment.    If reports be line, tbi' action  of the Provincial  government  in   tbe  fisheries
bill i.s enough in it-elf lo cause serious
trouble, hetween thu two governments,
in which ihe Dunsinult'government is
likely lo come  out second  best,  hut
Ih.'co   are  oth.-r  questions, as   well,
■ial are said lo  be tbe cause of a. (Icon ihe part of the governmental
v'ieioita    lo  curry  favor   with   the
federal government.
Mr. William Fleet Unlerfson, provincial mineralogist ami wet blanket
in ordinary to the ininingilevelopuieitt
of British Oolumhla, is shortly to start
out lo inspect the mineral resources of
a wide new seetion of country.   His
Itinerary    will    start    from    Vernon
whence he will woik his way into the
Boundary country, taking In the headwaters of Kettle river,    lie will then
woik west  through  the Hitnilkatneen
aod return by way of the Mope mountains.   A  sigh  of iciiel' has gone up
from all the other mining districts.
Smallpox thoy may have, and a elisor
g.iuissed lead market aud haul time,
gem rally.   But this year by lhe mercy
of Providence they are to he spared a
visitation from William Fleet liohect-

Ae Pictured by a New   Westminster
Man, who Visited the Place.
Last Wednesday, 0. ii. Major, of
the (Inn of Major & Pierscin.real cstat.
agents, New Westminster, arrived in
Midway  from   Penticton Ity private
rig.
Mr. Major, who is an official admin
istratnr, is making a visit to a number
of the important towns aud mining
camps of the Similkameen, Boundari
and Hossland districts to arrange foi
the disposal, or looking after, of some
real estate and milling properties,
owned hy a gentleman, who is at pres
ent coiitiued in the Insane Asylum at
New Westminster.
Mr. Major is an old timer,  in  tin-
province, having come to British Columbia with lhe Hrst gold excitement
on  the  Fraser   river, 12 years ago.
and has resided in (be province ever
since.   Thirty five years ago Mr.Mi.jor
came in cm horseback over the Jlo| e
mountains as far as Bock Oreek, when
the gold  excitement    was   bringing
people to that once famed creek, I ut
this was Mr. Major's Hrst, visil to Mid
way,   On his way in he  visited I iie
claims  in  Cump   Hedley,   which  he
thinks is a very promising camp,' hut
as yet has little development, beyond
thnt done on the Nickel  Plate, and a
few other claims of minor Importance,
Mr.    Major was   particularly weP
pleased w'th Midway and predicts for
it a great  future   "ils   beautiful  sill -
foundings," said he, "makes it an ide.I
j residence town,   It is  the  most pic
j luiesipie spot I  have  yet  seen in Ibe
I interior of British Ooiumbia, and not
I only is it the garden of the district.
j but is as well the coining distributing
point lor the vast and wealthy country
west of here.   Its position is such thai
it will he on almost any line of railway
that is likely to be built, iu the Boundary count.y, and I believe before many
months go Ity, Midway will witness a
ch.-inge for Ihe better, and that in lime
it will lie the must important town of
the district.     Like  everybody  else,"
said Mr.Majnr, "I am anxious to make
money and I shall  in  all probability
return tc) Midway  before  very long
and invest III real estate, as I ai.i confident Ihal it will prove a profitable
investment."  Afler looking over the
town, Ml'.  Major left, by Thursday's
train en route for Rossland,   He was
accompanied on his trip by .1.(1. Chile,
Inspeetnrof Customs for this province,
who is on a tour of inspection  of the
various  Customs   otllc.es of this district.

There is now no doubt that one
and probably two railways will be
building out of Midway as soon as
spring opens, and Midway is destined
to become the commercial and railway
centre of the Boundary country.
Now is the time to buy lots in the
town. They will make you rich. It is
not a speculation, it is an investment.
