Getting Ready to ship Ore from
Dolly Varden Many Properties Bonded in Last Few
Weeks.
WITH the completion of the Taylor
railroad to the Dolly Varden mine
in the Alice Arm Isection, that
part of the Portland Canal district ie
humming wiih renewed activity.
The Taylor Engineering Co. is to operate the mine under certain conditions
imposed by the legislature till the
money owing by the owners is taken
out of it. The B. C. legislature established quite a precedent in reaching
such a decisisn, and the mine will stand
up to it for no doubt it can "pay"
many times the amount of the Taylor
bill and then some.
The Taylor people are now building
a tram to the mine and as soon as this
is completed it is probable ore shipments will commence. The mine is
come eighteen miles from the beach.
Its rich ore bodies have been determined by diamond drill. All through
the section are many good showings
on which development is beyond the
prospect stage.
The fact that the American Smelting
and Refining Co. has bonded properties
in the di.-trict indicates that the section
has passed Al inspection   by engineers.
By reason of the activity in this section, a review of the work done when
i ieorge Clothier, resident engineer for
the Depa.tment of Mines, is interesting at this time.

Kitsault River Section.
This section was in a fair way to
become an important factor in the
mining Industry of the province. The
railroad from the beach to the Dolly
Varden, partially constructed last
vear, was practically rebuilt and near-
.ng completion when the contracting
company went Into liquidation, with
the result that the camp of Alice Arm
.ind the section tributary to it were
tied up for the winter.
The Dolly Varden Mines Company
iwns tlie Dolly Varden property, about
eighteen miles from tidewater on the
west Lank of the Kitsault River, and
the Wolf property, two miles farther
ill on the east bank of the Kitsault.
The Dolly Varden has been extensively
��� ipened up by underground development and is therefore in condition to
start shipping at any time. The ore
bodies have been proven by thousands of leet of diamond drilling. On
ihe Wolf a tunnel 85 fet long has been
triven 'n on the ore body, from the
iace of which a crosscut to tlie north
'ii feet and to the south 10 feet proves
he ore body for a width of 6u feet,
with neither wall in sight. Several
thousand feet of diamond drilling has
been dune, proving the extent of the
,ire body and showing it to be of a
good   milling grade.

It is reported that the Premier
Miniug Co. has arranged to make
its shipments this winter with a
snow motor truck, such a' has
bien successfully operated in several places. A five million dollar
corporation has been formed to op-
era'e the Premier mine. In pioneering the way in the Salmon
River section the Premier company
is going to great expense ^and it is
understood the plans 'or getting
tie ore out are elaborate. The
wagon road alone is reported to
cost approximately $100,000, and
considerable money was also spent
in constructi n of the wharf at
Hyder over which last winter's ore
shipments were handled.

Martin owned considerable property
in Stewart and his residence is one of
the best buildings in the camp. During the past two years he had put in
much of his time looking after the
roadbeii of the Canadian Northeastern
Railway. He had improvised some
rolling stock and rigged a push car

will make comparatively easy the work
of getting in the heavy machinery this
winter.
When the Provincial Government
has continued the Premier road up the
valley as a temporary sleigh road this
winter, the cost of obtaining supplies
at such mines as the Joker, Forty Nine
and Big Missouri will be considerably
reduced. Expenses of opening up the
Salmon River section have been unusually heavy by reason of the lack of
transportation facilities. But the operators have held courageously to their
work and the ore bodies disclosed
prove they were justified. Several
properties may make trial shipments
this winter.

MEANS NEW LIFE
TO OLD ROSSLAND
It has been recognized for many
years that the future of Rossland depended upon the successful treatment
of the low-grade ores. The recent announcement that the experts of the
smelter had solved the problems of
treating the complex silver-lead-zinc
ores of the Sullizan min% and of the
concentration of the low-grade ores of
the Rossland mines, is the most important metallurgical development of the
year, according and Engineering Record of Vancouver. It nfeans new life
to Rossland.
