STEWART,   B.C., Oct. 2.   1920
Snow is already driving prospectors back to town and from
now until the first snow on the
flats there will no doubt be a
steady exodus of those going
out for the winter months. It
would be difficult to estimate
how many men have been in the
district this season, but the
weekls exodus would appear to
be a good basis for estimation.
In spite of the fact that a
big crowd leaves almost every
week, yet there appears to be
about as many left in town as
ever. Therefore most residents
are inclined co the opinion Stewart will be a good winter camp,
aad judging by the number who
have signified their intention of
spending the whole or part of
the winter in town.
Looking back over the past
few months, one marvels that
development has been so great.
This was a season when the elements seemed to conspire
against progress what with a
late season and floods. And it
begins to look as if another winter would set in early.
But, in spite of it all, much
sound development work has
been accomplished, a large area
of new territory explored, and
the eutcome has been the creation of greater confidence than
ever in this district.

HIGH GRADE ORE
EXPOSED NOW
ON INDIAN GROUP
During the past few weeks Roy
Clothier with a small force of men has
been further developing the property
of the Indian Mines Ltd., on Salmon
River with gratifying results. A new
vein of high grade ore, free from zinc,
has been opened up. Mr. Clothier is
highly pleased with the results which
have been obsained with so little
work.
This company owns four claims on
the west side ot Cascade creek, opposite the Bush claims, on the south end
of Missouri ridge, between the Salmon
River glacier and Cascade crek. The
claims are Portland No. 1, PorUand
No. 2, Big Dick, and Fritz, and are
Crown-granted. They are at an elevation of about 2,400 feet and fourteen
miles from tide-water at Stewart. No
work has been done on the property
since 1913.
Development consists of three open-
cuts on the croppings and two tunnels.
The open-cuts expose a vein from 12
to 20 feet in width, which can be followed on the surface to the end of
the claims, about 2,000 feet. The veals quartz and appears to follow a wide
dioritic dyke which intrudes the greenstone-schists. The minerals included
in the quartz are galena, sphalerite,
and pyrites, in the order of importance
mentioned. The flrst two open-cuts,
going up the hill, show very little galena; the values are about $10 a ton in
gold and silver for a width of 12 feet.
The upper or main open-cut discloses
the vein for a width of 20 feet, of
which 5 to 8 feet in the centre is solid
galena, with the same amount of zinc
and gajena on the hanging wall, and
the balance of the vein on the foot-
wall ot quartz and pyrites.
A tunnel has been driven about 150
feet vertically below and following the
vein for a little over 400 feet, showing
each of the ore-shoots exposed on tho
surface. The No. 1 shoot shows considerable galena at this depth, with
quartz and pyrites predominating, and
is about 35 feet in length. The No. 2
shoot is entirely of quartz and pyrites
and will average about $10 a ton, mainly in gold values. The No. 3 or main
shoot, from the big cropping on the
surface, was struck at about 400 feet
in the tunnel and drifted on for 30 feet.
The ore started from a seam on the
foot-wall and has widened to 14 feet
at the face, as exposed by two crosscuts. Three sectional samples across
the face averaged $2.40 in gold, 3.5 oz.
silver, 10 per cent, lead, and 16 per
cent. zinc. The hanging-wall crosscut
at the face is still In heavy zinc ore.
Further work in driving this drift is
very important, as the foot-wall portion of the vein, carrying the galena,
is widening rapidly and has all the
appearance of making into a good
shoot of ore.
The lower tunnel, 150 feet below No.
1, has been driven about 60 feet on the
vein, in which there is from 1 to 3 feet
of good ore on the hanging wall. On
the upper end of the claims there is a
6-inch seam of ore on the hanging-wall
assaying as high as $120 a ton in gold.
There is a good cabin and a good
equipment of all necessary tools, with
a car and rails ln the upper tunnel.
