Ferguson, B. C, JULY 29, 1904.
$2 a Year In advance
At a number of points, dykes and
masses of green rocks occur concerning whose eruptive origin there
can be no doubt. In the present
summary they will be referred to
simply as greenstones. At the
head of Menhinick creek the greenstone is a heavy mottled gabbro
with long green pyroxene crystals,
plagiociasc nnd a dark brown
mineral with good cleavage. On
the ridge between Gainer creek
and Cariboo creek, dykes of a similar rock occur which fork and send
tongues out into the slates, altered
near the contact; although in
general the dykes conform in direction to the dip and strike of the formation. The greenstone at the
head of Murray brook is more
dioritic in appearance, consisting ot
hornblende, biotite, plaginrlnno .nJ
some pyrite.
In almost all, if not all ot the
mineralized zones, a green, yellow-
weathering rock occurs. Frequently it is schistose, somewhat resembling lhe chlorite schists, but differing ip color in the occasional development of serpentine, and in its
characteristic weather crust. Sometimes it remains more or less massive and, il large, shows a marked
porphyritic texture in the centre of
the band, while the borders remain
fine-grained. While contorming
closely to the dip and strike of lhe
enclosing rocks, it does not always
follow them. From its weathering
and high content in lime it is usually
called a dolomite, but there is no
question that it is an eruptive rock,
occurring in the form of sheets and
dykes. Its texture alone, where
unaltered by mashing, would be
sufficient to prove this, were no
other evidence obtainable. Microscopic examination points to its
having been a diabase, but it now
consists of u mixture of quartz, seri-
cite, serpentine nnd carbonates.
The granite which extends along
the south-western edge of the area
examined is rather a fine-grained,
light-colored, acid granite, consisting of quartz, white to slightly reddish orthocln.se, white plagioclase,
sometimes altered to epidote, and a
small quantity of a colored constituent, which is sometimes biotite
and sometimes hornblende. It is
full ol little cavities formed by contraction on cooling (miarolitic structure). Fine-grained aplite dykes
and coarse quartzose pegamites are
abundant in many localities near the
granite mass'. Coarse-grained porphyritic granodionte (tonalite, the
Nelson granite of the West Kootenay sheet) occurs up Fish river to
the north, and numerous glacial erratics of it are scattered over the
Lardeau district.
The distribution of the rocks can
be referred to briefly here. At Revelstoke the rock consists of schists,
gneisses, impure crystalling lime-
"tones, pegmatites, granites, etc,
That is, the sedimentary series is
much cut up by granitic intrusive
rocks, and is highly metamorphosed.
The same holds true on the Columbia river and upper part of Upper
Arrow lake. Masses ol granite
and their dykes, many of them between beds of the stratified rock, are
numerous. A large mass of granite
occurs at the Saw-mill point, extending southward to near Halcyon.
The main body of granite occurs
between Arrow lake and Trout lake,
forming the greater part of the
Lardeau-Arrow lake divide. It extends south-eastward over the Trout
lake slope forming the heads of the
tributary brooks, and about Rock
creek comes within a mile or so of
the lake. From hence its contact is
more southerly, so that at Poplar
creek it is found about io miles up
the brook from the Lardeau valley.
Further south it appears to attain
even larger dimensions. The Trout
Lake valley, the North-east Arm
and the country between the Fish
river and the Columbia, are largely-
made up ol the dark slat" and phyl-
lites with some limestone bands and
a little of the greenstone and green
schists. The strike of the beds is
about 2S0 degrees, so that 'these
rocks extend as long bands about
north-west and south-east across
the district. Between.the northeast arm and Camborne an important band of the green schists crosses
the Trout lake-Ferguson wagon
road and the south-west face of
Silver Cup mountain. They are
also important on the Lardeau
river. At Camborne and for a little
distance north is a band of slates
and phyllites, with dykes of the
diabase schist. This band extends
south easterly across the country,
crossing Beatrice mountain at the
head of Mohawk Creek, over Nettie
L. mouutain, and over the northeast slope and summit of silver Cup
mountain. It crosses thc Lardeau
river about Tenderfoot creek, and
continues through Poplar creek.
Northeast of. this band the green
schists are again developed, giving
place a little farther north-east to
the lime-dyke series, which consists
of a mixture of slates, phyllites,
schists, and some greenstone dykes.
Some dykes of diabase schist and
important limestone bands also
occur. This series, easily traceable
on account of the way in which the
heavy band of limestone withstands
weathering, can easily be followed
across the whole length of the district in a direction of about 285 deg.
This formation is met with a short
distance up Gainer creek, at the
head of the North Fork of Lardeau
creek, and the heads of Pool and
Lexinglon creeks.
Although all the ground at Poplar
creek itself is staked, there is still a
great deal ol promising territory to
be prospected for gold. The same
belt is mostly open for prospecting
north-west of Poplar creek to Silver
Cup mountain. On Silver Cup
mountain and between it and Camborne there is still some free ground.
Anywhere along this belt gold may
be found.    Free gold wai dis
covered last autumn on the Wins-
low, north-west of the head of Seven
Mile creek. While it is not certain that the whole length of this
belt is auriferous, it is worth examination. The belt south-east of
Poplar creek is little known, but
may prove auriferous. The southwest belt between the valley and
the granite contact is mostly open
for prospecting. Some promising
silver-lead ore containing* gold
values, has already been found in
this belt. The lime-dyke belt may
also be prospected for gold. Numerous quartz veins similar to those
in the gold camps occur in it, under
similar conditions, and it is altogether probable that some of them
are gold-bearing. The Ophir-Lade
group is said to continue rich free
gold ore.
Quartz veins and some galena
veins occur between Fish river, the
Columbia and Revelstoke, but little
is known of this district.
Thc Lai deau district can be en
tered from the Upper Arrow lake or
from Kootenay lake, the steamer
connecting with tha Arrowhead
branch ofthe C.P.R., and the Arrow
lake steamers run to Comaplix and
Beaton at the head of Northeast
Arm. From these poinls wagon
roads, with stage line, run to Cnm
borne, the centre of the Fish river
camp. From Beaton a wagon road
also extends to Trout Lake city at
the head of Trout lake, and from
thence a wagon road runs up Lardeau creel; to Fergns'-n and Ten-
iMilc. Stage lines operate between
Beaton, Trout Lake and Ferguson.
A steamer connects Trout Lake
city with Gerrard at the foot of the
lake. From the latter, a branch
line of the C.P.R. connects Lardo,
at the head of' Kootenay lake,
whence steamers run daily to Kaslo
and Nelson. From these main
lines of travel trails run up the
principle creeks.
The grandeur of thc scenery, the
ease of access, the opportunity for
mountain climbing, hunting and
fishing, and of becoming acquainted
with the characters of a western
mining camp, should attract tourists and other visitors to the Lardeau. First-class hotels and transportation facilities already exist.
The Eagle man paid a surprise
visit to several claims within riding
distance on Monday last. The
Union Jack, owned by J. C. Kirk-
patrick was visited first. The property is situate near 7-Mile cr eek,
and is with 200 yards of the South
Fork wagon road. There ar e two
cabins, an abundar.ee of good timber, and a splendid supply -of water
at the mouth of the mine. There is
a prodigious dump of concentrating
ore ready for a mill when a purchaser  takes  it up, but at present
all attention is being devoted to situa"t"e oiTthe Silver c"up"moui.ta!n.
following the lead known ns the j about seven miles from Ferguson.
Silver   Cup   main   vein.     At tlits-
���creek runs through the Silver
Slipper. Our visit was ill-timed, as
blasting was proceeding briskly.
Ed. Hillman and Tom Graham have
a splendid property. There is
enough ore there on sight to satisfy
anyone who is seeking a mine.
Development work is the order of
the day. The posiiion is a most
favored one lor a mine���a plentiful
supply of water and an abundance
of the right class of timber Enough
work has been done on the Elsmere
and I.X.L. to have them " Crown
granted." We brought away with
us two samples off the dump, the
average assay of an unlimited supply reading 100 oz. silver and 60
per cent lead, while a selected
specimen assayed $4 gold and 14
per cent copper. It goes without
saying that a fortune is awaiting
the lucky purchaser.
The    Cromwell  and   I.X.L.   are
The Guinea Mines.
Ontario shareholders In the Guinea
Mines have been looking nltor their
interests. Mr. Isaue Pickering, of
Forest, Ont., was selected to visit the
Lardeau and report on the condition of
affairs. After a careful examination
of the ground and the companies'property he reported to tho Topic that he
was more than phased with the showings, and, if anything, they exceeded
the representations made by the company's agents. The work done consists
of two tunnels, the upper In 120 feet
showing clean ore from 12 to 18 Inches
in width for' a distance of 85 feet. In
tho lower tunnel, which is nearly 400
feet, the ore bas been exposed at different points. It is claimed that the
ore averages $100 to tho ton. On the
Old Gold there Is a very rich surface
showing. A wall of solid ore, which
averages 18 inches in thickness and
about 18 feet wide lifts Itself out of the
formation, and stands like an old time
point 400 feet of hard rock has been
bored. The main lead was struck
some weeks ago, but In the upraise the water beat them out.' A
cross-cut has been made, and a
great amount of |concentrating ore
and some large string-is have been
encountered. The men who have
done the tunneling, Will Waller
and Lew Thompson, deserve all
kinds of luck.
The Rambler claim was next
visited. This properly is also on
the South Fork, and the tunnel
which J. Livingston is driving is
within 50 feet of the wagon road.
Since our last visit to this property,
a ton or high-grade concentrating
ore has been dumped, The whole
of the surface is very rich in
mineral and carbonates, and some
nice 5 to 8 inch stringers are seen.
The Nettie L. vein runs through
this point. A 20 ft. waterfall at
the mouth of the tunnel is a natural
obstacle to nn attack on the hanging wall, but an attempt is being
made to reach the clean ore by following the drift. At 17 ft. it is calculated the clean ore will be reached,
and thi> point was the b;isis of
operation when our visit was made.
About four feet of this has been
completed, and the dump of concentrating ore is being/augmented
at every shot. The latest assays
from an average sample of car-
bonatc ore lifted by our representative are 58 ozs. in silver and $10 in
gold. About 600 pounds of clean
ore is also sacked, and an average
sample assayed 82 ozs. silver and
$1.20 gold. This property is unquestionably a prize for some promoter or capitalist, and we trust
the persistent hammering ofHonest
Jim will soon be rewarded. We
venture to remark that if several investors visited the proposition some
spirited bidding would result, but5
so faithful is our " luck " clinging at
the present time that we doubt if
we could sell a gold brick for 20
The Elsmere group was also
visited by our representative this
week. This group, which consists
of trie Nickel Plate, I.X.L., Elsmere,
Silver Slipper and Truro, is situated
about 6 miles from Ferguson on
the North Fork, and a good pack
trail crosses the Elsmere,    Galena
about   seven
On the Cromwell a lead of an average width of 4 feet has beer, exposed for a distance of 1,500 feet.
Assay values of recent date show
us S80 in gold, and 70 ozs. silver
per ton. A tunnel of 200 ft. has
been driven. Dr. Milloy wilh a
gang of men for the past few weeks
has been surveying lor Crown grant.
This property is a paying proposition Irom the start. On our solitary
ride back to town we had lime (or
reflecting 011 the lack of ente.rpri.se
at present displayed by capitalists.
A trip for a few hours among our
hills with one who has nothing to
sell but who has a great pride in our
mineral wealth, should prove very
instructive and fruitful to tfio investor.
The Black Prince, situated at the
head of Gainer creek, and acquired
late last fall by Tony Becker and
associates is turning out a valuable
property. A ton a day of iliiy'.i-
grade silver-lead ore is being sacked
for shipment to Nelson. A tunnel
of about 60 feet has been driven.
Triune Development
The development of the Triuno property has tor the past two months prc-
ceoded rapidly. A gang of men havo
completed a corduroy wagon road to
the mine. B. C Riblet bavo mndo a
survey for the dnjible-iopo tramway
they are building at the mine. This,
survey places tlio tramline all on tho
east side of Triune creek, and i. about
8,000 foot long, with an elevation of
;i.O0O feet. The management have
this week augmented their forces, 14
men being employed at the mine.
Three distinct lines of procedure arc
now being observed���shipping, extending No. 1 tunnel, and boring a third
tunnel. A lon of high grade ore 11 day
is being shipped to the Trail smelter.
Extension 1ms been beguuon No, I tunnel nearest the lop of tbe mounntain.
The new development, tunnel No. :i is
about 100 feel below No. _, anil a sun-t
at this point was malic this week. It
is expeoted lhe extension ol No. 1 will
oj.en up new shoots of the hlgh-giaile
ore for which the upper tunnel ha.
beon noted for tho past four years, tho
oro boing tho rich soft carbonates
assaying from $150 to$200 per ton. Tho
No. II tunnel is 'expected to reach nt
good advantage tho lower workings,
and a shoot of ore which projects
to tho surface of thc mountain. As all
of these operations at the Triuno arc
carried on 8,000 feet abovo sea level,
much ice and frost is encountered in
Midsummer. The snowbanks have remained to the present time on thc
Triuno slopes, which Is nn unusual
occurrence, the snow usually disappearing early in June.
The management have also a force o.
men clearing a right of way for the
Riblet tram, which will be completed
before snow comes in September.

its retreat below the town. The early

as wo got right down to business witli
a keen ear and a sharp pencil, we tried

missed tho stage. Amongtho pL'tur-

the incident were:���Seventeen lurid

the destruction of the stage-driver's
eyesight, and thirty-four other bright

outburst to "a meritorious but unlearned endeavour to be picturesque."
