than take full advantage of their position

Carrying special significance
to mining men comes a report
from the Department of Mines
in Victoria suggesting an operating profit of from $300 to $600
per day by the mammoth dredge
of the Kafue Copper Corporation
of England, wallowing in the
bed of Old Antler Creek in the
Cariboo.
Reports of the Department of
Mines is to the eff��ct that the
dredge is handling 2000 yards ef
gravel a day at an operating cost
i of ten cents a yard. The ground
; worked carries from 25 to 40
cents a yard in gold values ancl
several years' supply has been
proved, the statement says.
On that basis of production
and cost it may be determined
that the returns, above cost of
operating, would run from $300
to $600 daily.
there the first of the week consigned to O. P. Brewn who is in
charge of the development w��rk
on the Dahl Olson group on the
Thornhill mountain at Six Mile
Point, says the Omineca Heraid.
The new machinery came from
Vancouver and consists of about
two tons of cable for a short
tram line, compressor plant,
drills etc. which will permit of
rapid development. The first
load went up to the mine on
Monday, it being the cable, and
work ��n the tram has been
started.
It is the hope of Mr Brown to
start shipping ore from the duwp
by the first of February. During the early stages of development a considerable quantity of
good ore was taken ont and only
awaits the tram line. Once the
road is in shape the transportation costs will be very low as a
good team will make four trips a j

giving credence to the report

in  millions of  pounds   sterling

will be operating a fleet of dredges in the Cariboo country before
many months have passed.
The Kafue Copper Development Company is allied with the
Selukwe Corporation of London
and South Africa, holders of controlling interest in the B. C. Silver mine in the Portland Canal
and owners of a number of promising properties in the province.
Success of that British capital
in British Columbia will, it is
hoped, have the effect of renewing confidence in this field and

Interest of the Porcupine Gold
Fields Company Limited in mineral resources of British Columbia is manifested by the fact that
the organization has no less than
nine scout engineers in the field
looking for promising ground, it
was learned Tuesday from the
British Columbia Chamber of
Mines, says the Vancouver Sun.
"More than ever in the history
of British Columbia is the mining world turning to our province for future mineral supply."
said Henry Browning, secretary
of the Chamber of Mines.
"The Eastern Canadian com-
~ ���=*. pany is only one of many great
mining concerns actively engaged in exploiting British Columbia for good prospects.
"There is good reason to believe that this coming year will
see fully as many, and possibly
more, scouts at work and that
they will in a number of instances turn in reports which will result in the investment of thousands of dollars in the mining industry of our province."
J
OPERATIONS
NEAR TERRACE
The first large consignment of
heavy mining machinery to go
into the Terrace district arrived
On his way  to   Atlin,   from
which point he will lead the first
mining expedition of this  year|
into the Dease Lake country.   R. I
VV. ("Four-Finger" Bob) Martin
was    a   passenger   aboard   the
Princess Mary yesterday afternoon accompanied by three men,
says the Prinee   Rupert  News.
Mr Martin is one  of   the   best
known mining men in   the   province and has  operated  extensively in   the   Stewart  district,
his last venture   there  having
been the Victoria Mines Ltd.
Mr Martin owns valuable
claims on Palmer creek and it is
his intention to mush over the
ice from Atlin to that point���a
distance of something like 200
miles. He plans to lay out a
program of hydraulieking work
which will be proceeded with in
the spring.
The only thing that was worrying Mr Martin when seen yesterday afternoon was that the
mild weather that has been prevailing in the north may interfere with his plans of getting into the Gassiar district as rapidly
as he haa anticipated.

Local Stocks
(Quotations by HW.M. Rolston & Co)
The market during the past
week slackened off though considerable activity was noticed in
all the popular stocks.
Dunwell dropped a few points
but was in in active demand,
and with the arrival of the present snowstorm the active shipping program will be put into
full force. At the time of going
to press the Dunwell mine has
seme 250 tons of ore sacked
and ready to come down the hill.
The diamond drills are still
working on the Glacier Creek and
further good reports are expected
Exceptional results are being
obtained at the Independence.
The management reports that
the ore bodies on which they are
working are proving very satisfactory. This stock is expected
to reach higher levels in the near
future.
B.C.Silver is in steady demand
and even at the present price
offers every chance of enhancement owing to the little amount
of stock being actually on the
open market.
Porter Idaho slackened off during the week, though ready buyers are always found at the lower
levels.
The approach of spring is again
drawing attention to properties
which closed during the winter,
and on commencement of summer operations there will be a
big enhancement in their respective stocks.
Local reports are to the effect
that the Silver Crest has run into some very fine ore. This stock
has always been a public favorite
and offers every chance of a
rapid rise in the market.
