with the south, which is expected
in the near future. In the meantime active mining operations are
being carried on, some 17 men
being employed, mostly underground. High grade ore is being
regularly taken out, sorted and
sacked, and as soon as the ccld
weather commences, this will be
brought down to tidewater.
Hides are already at the mine,
and a new trail is being broken
for their use down over the hill,
coming out on the wagon road at
6-Mile. This trail will be much
better in the winter, as well as
much shorter.
First-class camp accommodation has been provided, and the
management have settled down
for the winter to actual mining
and development operations. At
the Skookum creek tunnel a
laterial depth of 150 feet has been
reached and the face is in good
milling ore, considerable of which
is being taken out and stored for
future treatment; while the north
tunnel, on the same vein (called
the 85 foot level) the drift from
the crosscut has been run 250
feet, and at this point the vein is
7 feet wide, with three feet of
high grade ore, which appears
to be one of the best shoots yet
encountered on the property.

Lode Gold, $105,557,977; Silver. $55,259,485; Lead. $48.330 575;
Copper, $166,393,488; Zinc. $21,884,531; Coal and Coke. $225,-
409,505; Building Stone, Brick, Cement. $34,072,016; Miscellaneous <
Minerals, $1,210,639; making its Mineral Production to the end of
1921 show
AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $734,259,619
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the value
of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895,
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years. 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for
five years, 1901-1905. $96,507,968: for five years. 1906-1910, $125,-
534,47*; for five years, 1911-1915, $142,072,603;     for  five    years,

PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $336,502,897
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 3o0,n00
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open fur prospecting.
TIip mining laws of this Province are more liberal and the fee*
lower than those of any oth��r Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which  is guaranteed by Crown Grants.
