WHILE nothing authentic has been given out by the company, it is reported on good authority that the Premier Gold
Mining Company intend to construct another unit of their
mill at Camp 4 with a daily capacity of 150 tens, thus doubling
their production of concentrates.
It is understood a crew of men are now employed clearing
and leveling the site, which adjoins the present plant on the
north, and will be an exact reiica of it.
The nature of the ground is such that the work now under
way will take some time to complete, therefore it is possible,
owing to the heavy fall of snow in the winter months, that the
management intend to leave the actual trtction oi the necessary building until the spring, being content to assemble the
materials and machinery during the wiriter, when the 6tiow
roads afford cheaper transportation.
It has been rumored for some time that the company contemplates the erection of a lOOO-ton mill at or near 13 Mile,
where they are tapping the ore deposits at a depth of 500 feet
below the Camp 4 level. Particularly was this the case when
it was learned that this lower tunnel was 7x9 in the clear, end
that 30-pound steel was used in the track.
Evidently underground exploration on the Premier has
been such that the management are warranted in laying plans
for a much larger plant than has locally been expected.

THE  VALUE  OF  A "CONTACT"
THE prospector and miner has long
clearly sensed the affinity of igneous intrusions to ore deposits, however much
some schools of economic geology have
blindfolded themselves to the facts. And
the prospector and miner have used these
conclusions in their work, with excellent
results.
So far, so good; but all good ideas are
apt to be ridden to death. The extravagant conclusion has been often reached
that all igneous contacts are places where
ore should be found; hence igneous contacts as such have often been prospected.
This was the praotical vagary; the theoretical vagary, believed in, until lately, by
many if not by most geologists, was that
the ore was pressed out from, or escaped
from, the cooling igneous rock. This
theoretical extravagance indeed justified
the practical vagary noted; the trouble
with it is that it is not true. There are
many hundreds of thousands of miles of
igneous "contacts guiltless of even a suspicion of ore. The ore has not escaped
from the cooling igneous rock.
When it comes to relatively narrow
dikes,   which are often   associated  with
veins and other forms of ore deposit, the
old belief becomes so evidently false that
it should have disappeared of its own
weight long ago; for by this belief there
should be a more er less direct ratio between the mass ofthe parent intrusion and
the mass of the expelled ores; but anyone
with practical experience, after a moment's
reflection, will concede that there is none.
The dike cannot have been the source of
the associated vein. Indeed, where such
an association occurs, the vein usually
follows only one wall of the dike; there
need be no vein on the other side of the
dike, as there would be had the ore emanated from the dike magma.
The reason for the common association of dike and vein, or of intrusive rock
in general, and ore deposits, is that both
are forms of crystallized magma; both are
I derived from a common deeper source or
locus of magmation. This is the genetic
reason: there is in addition the physical or
mechanical reason, in that both dikes and
Feins ascend by preference along cracks
or fissures, which always remain lines of
weakness. Hence a dike injection along a
fissure may be and is often followed by a
vein injection along the same place of
weakness; and sometimes conversely a vein
injection is followed by a dike injection
along the same fissure. The former is the
usual succession, since rock-magma temperature is higher than ore-magma temperature.
The practical lesson from these facts
is that in prospecting and mining one
should follow ore, not (primarily) contacts
or dikes; the wise, old-fashioned miner's
precept holds good- follow your ore. The
geologist can help greatly with the study
of associated rock formations, but these
associations must be given their due
weight, and no more.���Engineering and

snow has gone. The Federal
peoplemay then put a number
of men to work prospecting and
