THE PREMIER
THE SECOND annual report of the
Premier Gold Mining Co., most of which
appears in this issue, makes most interesting reading, particularly in view of the
fact that ail the figures and other data
given in it, are based on actual and proven
facts. In this regard it is safe to say that
the report is as conservatiue as it is possible to make it, and that everything savoring at all of speculation has been eliminated.
As the report is published in this issue
The headlines in last week's issue of
the Portland Canal News concerning the
Granby Company releasing  the  George
Copper property, created considerable interesting discussion.    Certain  interests
have taken the view that too great stress
had been laid on the matter of the condition of the Bear River Road.   In other
words these interests defended the Government policy of not building a wagon
road,���one was built years ago up Bear
river but allowed to deteriorate into a poor
trail during war years���until such time as
a mining company proves that it is going
ahead with heavy operations.
From a practical standpoint, in the development of a new country, there oan,
in every case be no justification for this
policy, ln the first place, it handicaps the
prospector, who already has heavy obstacles to overcome, by making heavy transportation costs which for one who, in his
position, is working on short capital,
earned by hard labor during the winter,
is a difficulty that when and wherever possible, should be eliminated.
In the second place, it will take more
than two years to put the upper end of the
Bear River road in condition that will allow heavy freight to be hauled over it.
This being the case the Granby, in the
event of having retained the property in
question, would have had to spend large
sums of money on either the road itself
or contend with prohibitive transportation costs, j
Of course, they could at all times adopt the alter-,
native of waiting until such time as the Govern-!

that development work during the past

in dividends. Another striking point is
the comparatively small area to which operations have been confined, and the fact
that ore bodies of great value have been

of the country?   Or does it not?
In answering this question the reader must
remember that so far as the operating companies
are concerned, they car just as easily take tip a
property in Northern Ontario, The States, .Mexico, South America, Africa, or many other parts
of the world where, in many cases, first class
roads are already constructed to the properties.

regard contend that to change the policy Blight-

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

PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $339,280,940
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000

horizon, at or near the contact
of the tuff and porphyry, the
tunnel itself being driven mostly
in tuff. This work has, therefore, not as yet reached its objective.
A drift was drivsn southward
from No. 4 tunnel level to explore at depth the outcrops on
the Cascade Falls No. 8, and
more particularly upon the Pie-
tou claim. Some ore bands of
small value were cut at about
where the Cascade Falls No. 8
outcrops might be expected at
depth, which bands have not as
yet been driven upon to see whether they are of interest, and at
the end of the year the drift,
which had reached a distance of
approximately 1400 ft., was cutting some silicified material with
streaks of values below commercial grade, upon one of which a
drift will be started to see whether commercial ore occurs along
the strike, as that is about in the
position that would be represented at depth by the Pictou surface outcrops. Considerable exploratory work, both by drifts
and diamond drilling, will bei
done in that vicinity during this
year, in order to see what, if
any, ore may be thereby disclosed.
