THE ARCTIC COPPER MINES
THE PAPER by George M. Douglas
in a recent issue of Engineering and Mining Journal-Press describes one of the
most fascinating mineral occurrences in
North America���the copper deposits of
the Coppermine River region, near the
shores of Coronation Gulf, a bay of the
Arctic Ocean. Known by hearsay from
the time of Hearne's journey in 1771, they
are still only dimly recognized or defined.
A serious attempt to explore the region
waa the notable expedition of Mr. Douglas
and his three or four white companions in
1911. The greater part of two seasons
was spent in the region investigated. Mr.
Douglas found a copper-bearing belt 16
miles wide and of unknown length, the
copper occurring as disseminated flakes in
basalt, as amygdaloidal copper, and as fissure veins. The Douglas expedition was
followed in 1915 to 1917 by the Canadian
Arctic expedition under Dr. J. J. O'Neill.
Dr. O'Neill determined the Bathurst Inlet mineralized area as 50 miles long, with
a maximum width of 25 miles; this area is
considered distinct from the Coppermine
River region explored by M[j\ Douglas,
and the country between has not been ex-
plortg.
In these two districts the content of
copper varies, as would be expected. The
amygdaloidal basalt flows found in the
Copper Mine Mountains by the pouglas
expedition had a copper content of as high
as 7 per cent, while sulphides in smaller
quantities carrying as much as 40 per cent
of copper were found. It is likely, moreover, that the most promising part of the
region has not been explored. Taken altogether, the indications are favorable
for the existence of high-grade mines, as
well as larger low-grade deposits in this
region. We have, therefore, it is probable, a region comparable, let us say, to
the Lake Superior copper region, on the
Arctie short*, unprospected and unowned.
Conditions for prospecting and mining
are not unfavorable, remoteness and the
consequent difficulty of transportation being the chief obstacle to further progress.
It may seem strange that a region
which offers such substantial promise
should be treated with silence by mining
capital���that another Lake Superior copper region
should fail to arouse interest, even with the drawbacks stated. The real reason lies in the character which the copper-mining industry has assumed. The consumption of copper by the world is
ever on the increase, and the development of
large-scale copper mining at many points has put
the industry on a sharply competetive basis. Copper mining has become largely a manufacturing
business, much like iron mining. Costs are the
factor which determines the successful and profitable copper fields. The reason that the Arctic
regions are untouched is similar to that which accounts for the neglect of the rich and abundant
iron ores of Brazil. They are remote from transportation, from coal, and from the centers of consumption. They constitute one of the world's
copper reserves, of which there are probably more
than we realize; they will be attacked when we
run out of nearer and cheaper copper, and not before. Of what use to develop a distant field, however rich, when the costs of operation would te
ruinously high compared with the existing great
mines which are in operation? If the ores were
gold ores or silver, instead of being copper, it
would be a different story. We should then seel
no delay in the initiation of a rush like that which
flooded the Klondike and Alaska in 1898.

CONCENTRATES
A report from Anyox says:���
When the new concentrator mill
was completed last  spring,   the
results of smelting  the concentrates  immediately   afterwards
justified the  belief  that  there
would be no  difficulties  in   the
economic treatment at the Anyox
smelter of all the  concentrates
produced. Since that time, however,   smelting  problems  have
arisn, and it has been found necessary to make entirely different
arrangements for  the  recovery
of all concentrate values,  smelting costs in addition having  increased two cents a pound  more
than was  the  cas-     3fore  the
treatment of coneen^ates began,
which, owing to the low selling
price of copper during the past
eight months, meant a big loss
to the Granby Company and consequently had to be dealt with in
the only   manner  whereby  the
company would get the best ra-

60,000 tons, local and foreign
ores combined. This will affect
the smelting and mechanical departments to a certain extent
and necessitate a reduction in
the number of men employed in
these departments.
Happily the concentrator has
proved to be all it was designed
for and more. Originally intended as a 1000-ton per day unit,
Granby men have brought its
tonnage treatment to 1500 tons
every 24 hours, and it is confidently expected that within the
next few months 2000 tons of
ore will be handled at the Anyox
mill. Everything at present favorably indicates that this will be
an accomplishment before the
year ends.
In addition to the ores handled
by the new mill, the old pilot mill
is to be rehabilitated for the
treatment of certain ores, and
the output of the mine speeded
up.
The work contemplated for
Granby Point Quartz earlier in
the year will not be proceeded
with at present, sufficient  ton-
suits.   It has been  decided  to nage  of  silicous  ores   coming
ship the product of the concentrator mill direct to Tacoma and
shipments will go forward until
such time as experiments, being
continuously carried on, will justify the smelting of the concentrates entirely at Anyox.
Between fourteen and fifteen
hundred tons of Hidden Creek
ore were being concentrated
daily at the mill and the concentrate result smelted prior to the
j decision to ship the mill product
south, and apart from the increase in smelting costs the recovery of values was considerably belo"' what the management
was justii ;d in expecting, a fair
percentage of values undoubtedly
disappearing up the stacK with
the Hue smoke.'
It is now hoped that the problems responsible for this loss will
be solved within the next few
months and that the entire output of the mill will be smelted
locally.
Because of the decision to ship
the concentrates south, it has
been found necessary to confine
the smelting unit of the plant to
three furnaces, with an approximate monthly smelting output of
from Maple Bay and the north
end of Larcom Island to supply
the flux necessary for smelting
the ores treated.
If interested  in   mining,   you
cannot afford to miss the News.

BOXING BOUT
^RlTllEPORT
_���*'
Considerable amusement has
been caused locally by a report
published in the Prince Rupert
Newa purporting to describe tht
recent boxing bout between Geo.
Dando of Stewart and Harold
Blanton of Hyder, held in the
Hotel Stewart Hall. (Notice,
tho report says tha contest waa
held in the Opera House.) The
report was evidently aent in to
tho paper from here, as it car-
riea a Stewart data line, and
published in good faith, but it
arouses the merry ha-ha among
thoae who were at the ringside.
For the benefit of those who did
not see the copy of the Prince
Rupert News, the story ia here
re-publiahed:
"On August 16 in the Opera
House here, an eight round bout
waa staged between Young Dando and Harold Blanton of Hyder,
tho latter being given the judgea'
decision by a narrow margin.
"The boys were evenly matched and the contest went the full
distance. In the third round
Dando had hia opponent in distress, and had he followed up the
advantage he had at that time
hia opponent would likely have
hit the boards. From this round
on both boxers mixed thinga
with Dando going strong and
Blanton apparently tiring. Dando scored several timet with
clean, straight lefts to tho face,
while Blanton waa content to
swing wild with many clinchea
resulting. Dando waa pushed
to the ropes and forced to cover
several timet.
"Blanton waa given tht dt-
cition though thia waa not approved by a majority of the
spectators, who would have favored a draw."
