Silver Crest is now operating
with as large a force as conditions permit. Lesser operations

P.R. Backus and associates are
mailing preparations to operate
in the Naas section back of
Stewart.
Most encouraging reports are

with the great amount ef development that is taking place ore
bodies of great potentiality are
being exposed. Owing to the
importance of the operators now

This  district   is   now
explored with thoroughness and
hundreds of men are in thehill*.
Not only  are they prospecting
for new showings, but a tremendous amount of development is
taking place.    Men are not con-j
tent   with    mere   "assessment j Under   neW
work" and   in  many instances management
they are   putting   in much   of
the season opening   up   showings for examination advantageously    by   mining    engineers.
Almost daily reports of new discoveries are coming in and from
every direction.   Ground which
was skimmed over before is being   carefully   prospected    this
time and with gratifying results.
Marmot River, four miles down
the canal from Stewart, is  an
instance.   Some of the highest
grade  samples   in the   district
have lately come in from there.
Whether   the   ore    persists  at
depth remains for development
to ascertain.    It is known that
they have  considerable    width
as past  work has  disclosed in
places  on   the   Marmot.     The
section  has   one  great natural
advantage ��� nearness   to  tidewater.

W. Pelley-Harvey, who practiced as a mining engineer and

says that his company was receiving a great many inquiries
