Vigorous Development is Being Undertaken this Season
On Many Properties all Along the Canal and Bear
River Valley.
ACCORDING to every report, the Portland ("anal district will witness a vigorous de.elopment this season. Stewart is at present
aim ist deserted of her prospector population, for these hardy men
of the outposts "f civilization have laker, to the hills, srme to do
their annual assessment work and others to make new locations in
districts already proven and districts which they havepasaed over
jn previous seasons. It seems likely this whole district will re-1
ceive a careful and painstaking exploration this year, for prospec-i
tors have aired their determination to make this season's work as
thorough as natural conditions will permit.
There is a strong probability that'several of the old companies,
formed back in J910, will start develoj ment apain. In the fnl-
lowing; report, George Clothier, government district engineer,
makes reference to only such properties as have been worked
during the- past few seasons. What Mr. Clothier has to say of
th so properties, coming from such a conservative engineer as he
is known to he, is bound to a'tract favorable attention.
f'ri>spectors now are scattered in all directions, and soon they
will come trekking b ck, and undoubtedly with important tews.
From all parts of the world they have come- Nevada, Colorado,
the Kootenays, Montana, the Yukon and Alaska, Cobalt, Arizona,
Mexico, South America and the mining s'ates of Australia, all
are represented by men who follow (he business as a profession
and not a few of whom have made fortunes out of old Mother
Earth.

of the Southwest, one of the greatest
b >oms of mining history is now in full
swing, with the sensational and romantic trimmings that made Tonopah and
Goldfield the talk of the world. From
all points of the compass adventurers
are rushing by the hundred: accommodations command fabulous prices; stocks
are bounding up and tumbling down in
kaleidoscopic confusion; San Fraacisco
brokers are physically unable to handle
all the orders thrust upon them and
many men have traveled from pauperism to millionairedom, at least on paper
within a few months. Comparisons are
usually odious, and yet it will do no
harm to point out that the Northwest
can duplicate, and perhaps surpass,
the mineral wonders of the Southwest.
For instance, it is doubtful if anything
in the history of the latter, except possibly a few Goldfield ore bodies of short
life, can compare with the sensational, (m |m, ���,,r,Ui, ,,,,���, ,, illllllt ,; ;,,,,,���

The property loks promising, and
credit is due W. B. George for the
amount of prospecting and work done
on the claims under difficult conditions.
BEAR RIVER MINING   CO.
This company holds a group of nine
claims west of and adjoining the
George copper-mine group. The ore-
zone mentioned on the George group
extends across this property. A tunnel
has been driven 100 feet in a Blightly
mineralized greenstone, with some
stripping and open-cuts above in the
same material. The tunnel is at an
elevation of 2,500 feet and is too low
to tap the ore-zone unless driven a
great distance.
GREY COPPER   GROUP
Directly west of tills group lies the
Grey Copper group, consisting of three
claims owned by Captain C. E. Clark
and associates, of Victoria, B. 0. The
work consists of an 9pen drift along
the vein for 125 feet, giving the maximum depth of 10 feet. The elevation
is 3,900 feet and 3,100 feet above Bear
River valley. The vein is composed
of brecciated wall-rock of argillite cemented with calcite and has a width
averaging 6 feet.   The ore-aeam, lying

concentrate the ore to a shipping
grade. The ore. consisting of a glassy
quartz mineralized with pyrites and
chalcopyrite, should lend itself admirably to the flotation process.
At Swamp Point the Granby Consolidated Company employs an average
of about thirty men the year round,
mining limestone for fluxing purposes
at their smelter. The production is
about 250 tons a day.
BEAR RIVER SECTION
The Molybdenum group is situated
just across Jiear River from Stewart,
practically on tidewater, and is owned
by J. W. Stewart and associates. The
only work done on the property is an
open cut on the vein at the edge of
the river and stripping of the vein
for 15 or 20 feet above the cut. This
discloses a vein 10 feet wide, consisting of quartz, garnetiferous silicates,
epidote and enclosures of a dark-green
rock, probably hornblende. The chief
mineralization is in pyrites, witli a little chalcopyrite and molybdenite scattered through the whole vein, and
especially in the dark-green basic-
rock. The molybdenum content will
average about 2 per cent., and about
five tons has been sorted and piled
on the dump. The property is ideally
situated and worth investigating for
molybdenum.
PRINCE JOHN GROUP
The Prince John group, owned by
Nesbitt ft Archie, is situated about
four miles above Stewart, on the west
side of Bear River. Development consists of surface cuts and a tunnel 185
feet long driven across the sedimentary formation. The cross-section in
the tunnel shows ;i0 feet of greenstone-
schists to the ore; thou 15 feet of
BChistOBe slates and argillites through
which the calcopyrite is disseminated
and in veinlets and bands interbedded
with tlie slates, averaging approximately 2 per cent, copper and $1 in
gold and silver a ton; then 4? feet, of
acidic dyke; and 65 feet oeyond the
dyke of sparingly mineralised elates.
The Granby Consolidated Company put
in two or three diamond drill holes,
but owing to the "slippy" nature of
the ground the drilling was an .
factory, ami that they afterwards ex-
tended the tunnel through and beyond
the dyke, from the showing In the

! collar of tlie  tunnel.    At  31   feet   in.
; the vein widens to about 10 feet, of
1 which  6  leet  6  inches  on  the   foot-
wall is solid antimonial lead, assaying
: 10 cents in gold, ol.o ounces silver, 15
per cent, lead, is per cent, zinc and
,8.3 per cent, antimony; tlie remaining
! portion of the vein, on which ihe tun-

a little galena.   On the Copper King

Operate this season.
DRUGSTORE OPEN

Ore From this Mine Gave Big
Assay Return Last Week���
Silverman is One of the Interested Parties.
It is understood that operations on
the Forty-Nine are to commence at
once. This property was recently
taken under bond by Chas. F. Caldwell,
through Hairy Howaon. Sam 1. Sil-
vermau of New York has since become
interested.
Last week some high grade silver-
gold ore was brought "down from this
mine and the assay returns were very
pleasing to everybody.
The 49 lies just east of the Yellow-
group, also under bond to the Caldwell
interests. The property is owned by
Dan and Andy Lindeborg.
The average vein width, disclosed by
three cuts, is 20 feet. The highest
open cut is 37 feet wide and shows
eight feet of fine looking ore and a further 12 feet of mineralization with
lower grade ore. The latest assay
from this property gave 359 oz. silver
and $120 in gold to the ton.
The premises of the Stewart City
Drug Store were put in shape this week
and the store is now open for business
with one of the most complete stocks
ever brought into a mining camp. The
store is especially equipped for the
preparation of first-aid boxes for mining camps. George A. Fraser, of Victor, has opened this store, and has been | p, M
