The Big Missouri group is bonded again, according to H. A.
Henton of Tacoma, head os the
Standard Mines Corporation,
and development is to begin at
once under the direction of Pat
Daly, who negotiated the deal.
Pat had  formerly   made   Mr
Henton the proposition he afterwards successfully presented to
R.K.Neill on the Premier.
Harry Townsend, formerly with

as consulting engineer. Following the preliminary exploration
work on the  Big  Missouri,   he
will outline a development program.

Another vein has been found
on the Munro group by J. E.
Munro and A.N.McDonald who
resumed development work a few
weeks ago. Samples of the ore
brought down show solid galena
and grey copper, the latter mineral predominating. The vein
has been exposed by an open cut
seven feet deep for a lateral distance of 40 feet. Although the
cut was carried along at a width
of seven feet, it did not definitely determine the width of the
vein.

OBSERVATIONS
LAZYNESS and lethargy in community and national affairs appears to be
characteristic of not only the people of
Stewart but the province as a whole. True
it Is, people seem to delight to sit or stand
around in little gatherings and wax eloquent in their criticisms, and what is, and
what should be, but when it comes to actually doing anything they are always too
busy, mostly pursuing their own pleasures
and as a result, all the hundred and one
little things that are necessary to be done,
are left to a few.
Safe it is to say that the people who
are loudest in their criticisms of the actions of the few, are themselves the last
people to lend a hand to any definite action, or assist even with their moral support any actual undertaking; and while
possibly their criticisms are made only for
want of something better to do, still a
little more genuine desire to better conditions, a little more appreciation of the
work of those who are carrying the burden, a little more charitable disposition,
and a little more tolerance would make
the lives of all much happier, and the people practicing it much stronger, and as a
result the world would be a brighter place
in which to live.
per cent of the gold output of the British
Empire.
What the mining industry means to
the agriculturists of South Africa is in
dicated by the fact that the mines pur
chase annually from the growers over
1,000,000 pounds of foodstuffs. Timber
fer mining poles and logging, grown in
South Africa, costs the mines about half
a million pounds a year. In 1923 the
expenditure of the Witwaterstrand for
foodstuffs, mining machinery, stores and
supplies amounted to 12,886,025 pounds.
The accident rate on the Rand in 1924
was 1.63 per cent, due largely to the shaft
accident at Radfontein in which 31 persons were killed. The Village Deep shaft
is now down to 6662 feet or over a mile
and a quarter from the surface.���Canadian Mining Journal.
SETTING A GOOD EXAMPLE
<��/
RAND GOLD PRODUCTION
RECENTLY compiled data supplementing that published in the brochure
* 'The Gold of the Rand" brings thc storj
of gold mining in the Transvaal up to
date. The approximate .value of the gold
produced in the Transvaal up to the end
of 1924 is 844,500,000 pounds. Of this
there has been spent in wages, "store*'
and other working costs, 628,000,000
pounds. The mines of the Rand are now
employing 18,942 Europeans, of whom
over one-half are South African born, and
181,120 colored persons.
Some idea of the amount of mining
done is indicated by the fact that 28,209,-
073 tons of ore were crushed in 1924. The
approximate mileage of underground excavation is 3,250 miles. The Rand is producing over one-half of the gold output
of the world and approximately seventy
Placerville, California, has a "community mine." A celebration is in prospect to observe the starting of its modern
10 stamp mill. Sacramento chamber of
commerce is lending aid.
Business men of this old camp determined that the way to start new mining
activity was to do it themselves. They organized last year the Eldorado Mining and
Development Company. The Gilford mine
on Poverty Point, two miles from Placerville, was selected as the frit property to
be re-opened.
In the early days the Placerville camp
produced $150,000,000 in gold. Spurred
on by the action of Placerville business
men, a number of individuals and corporations are now reopening mines in the
district
Residents of Placerville have set a good example for the "home town" folks in other mining
communities in the west. In too many communities the contribution of local interests to a mining revival consists in "soaking" every outsider
who ventures in to look for mines worthy of development.���Ex.

Several papers have lately been condemning
the Cassiar District, and report that prospectors
are leaving in disappointment, There was never
justification for a great excitement over the Gold-
pan Creek discoyeries. and William Grady, the
discoverer, discouraged it. Anyone who went
there expecting to find creek beds paved with
gold was a simpleton and due for disappointment.
Nevertheless the country is a good one to prospect for minerals in both lode and placers, and
undoubtedly there are enough genuine prospectors among those who went in to assure that the
section will be carefully examined.���Ex.
