NEW HIGH RECORD FOR MINERAL
BRITISH COLUMBIA'S mineral production in 1925 is valued at about $62,000-
000, an increase of over 25 per cent over
1924. Details of the years's operations
shows marked activity in all parts of the
Province, with much preliminary work
done in preparation of further develop*
ment this year, and there is every indication that another record will be made in
1926.
Principal of all operations are those
of the -Consolidated Mining & Smelting
Company at Trail, with its world-beating
mine, the Sullivan, at Kimberley, as well
as other big properties, and its big smelter at Trail. Ten per cent of the world's
lead and seven per cent of the zinc, is produced at Trail, where extensive extensions
have been made during the past year with
more in prospect.* What is being done at
Trail is shown by the figures of production. In 1919 the value was $7,326,925,
and it was thought the 1924 amount of
$20,854,000 was a big jump over 1923,
when the figure was $11,402,000, but last
year it climbed to almost $30,000,000.
Apart from the big features of its work, a
helpful /actor is the custom concentrating
mill for small operators.
Naturally, with a record production,
there has been increase in the amount of
ore mined and the metals produced. The
largest increase was that of lead, from
170,000,000 pounds to 236,000,000 pounds,
while zinc increased from 79,000,000 to
100,000,000 pounds, and copper from 64,-
000,000 to 72,000,000 pounds. Copper
production will be still further increased
this year, since the big plant of the Granby at Allenby will get well into its stride,
its capacity being 20,000,000 pounds of
copper per year. It has been working
only about half capacity since resuming
operation early last fall.
The department of mines at Victoria
reports a slight falling off in the production of lode and placer gold, but operation along both these lines is increasing.
The dredge of the Kafue Copper & Development Company on Antler Creek, Cariboo, demonstrated that it could make good
money, and with initial difficulties overcome it should do well this year. Increased gold operations will also be conducted
in the Cassiar district, while Atlin's output will also be greater.
There is nothing but progress in every
district to report. In Portland Canal the
Premier is doubling its capacity, and with
a successful season's work in that district,
other properties there will soon be shipping. J. F. Duthie has demonstrated that
mining in the Omineca-Skeena district
pays. In the Bridge river district, profitable operation of the Pioneer gold mine is
encouraging development of other properties. Around Kamloops and in the Nicola
old mines have been reopened. Much interest has been taken in the Lardeau, and
deals may shortly be announced. The Slocan has been revivified and Wallace mountain is aboom. All through the Kootenay
mining is active.
The actual figures of production for
the year have been large, but a very gratifying feature is the number of large companies which have been securing properties. Their operations for the year do not
show up in a material way as yet, but in a
year or two they will mean a great deal.
The Porcupine Goldfields & Development
Company, which took over the North Star
group near Kimberley, has been securing!
other properties not only in the Kootenay)
but in the Omineca, which presage large operations. The Federal Mining Company, a subsidiary of the American Smelting & Refining Company, bought the Sally and other properties on
Wallace mountain. It already has mineral properties in other parts of the prevince. The Victoria Syndicate, a strong British company represented
in Vancouver by R.H.Stewart. M. E., in addition
to buying is testing out some large propositions,
and next summer should bring some important
announcements.
Prospects of a steel industry in the Kootenay
are good, British capitalhaving been interested by
W.R.Wilson, general manager of the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Company. A big coast steel industry is
^lso in prospect, and the establishment of the latter would mean a big payroll almost immediate!}-.
This article is merely a sketch of principal
features of the year's mining operations. Details
of activity throughout the province will be contained in the annual report of the minister of
mines, and this will be a valuable volume to all interested in British Columbia mining.���Western

GOOD STRIKE IN
HUNTER BASIN
Mining interest last week took
a sudden and important jump to
the Hunter Basin district, when
word was brought down by Tom
Mclver that he had succeeded in
striking the vein on the property
control lea by the Carr   brothers
of Smithers,   says   the   Interier
News.     Mr   Mclver,   who  has
been in charge of the "work carried  on   during  the  past  few
months, states that he   encountered the lead on the footwall of
a big dyke and has opened  up a
showing often   inches   cf  grey
copper ore on the   hanging  wall
and four inches on the foot wall.
Samples of this ore taken  from
an outcropping on  the surface
125 feet above showed values of
over $200 per ton.    The ore   at
aepth,   he  considers,   is much
richer than the surface showing,
and he has hurried back  to   the
property to carry on   thi   work
and pick up the  ore  beyond  a
strong oxidization caused by  a
fracture in the formation  at the
point of picking up the ore.
In addition to the Hunter, Little Joe and View properties on
which they have taken a  bond
from O.A.Riegle of Telkwa,   the
Carr brothers own   three claims
in the Hunter basin   known  as
the Chester. Lorraine and Helen.
,There is a very strong showing
; of ore on the surface of the Ches-
I ter claim and a few  years ago a
tunnel was started to tap this ore
at a depth estimated at 135 feet.
After driving 115 feet work was
closed down, and it was not until
1 three months ago that a decision
; was reached to continue the tun-
i nel.
The ore on the Chester is now
proved to a depth  of  500  feet,
\ and with ore proved to 350  feet
on the Hunter claim the boys are
.naturally highly elated and plan
continuing work with the greatest possible speed, and  there   is
1 every indication of the  property
! being a big producer.
PALLADIUM ORE
IN SALTCHUCK
The Saltchuck mine near Ketchikan is now working steadily
and producing about 350 tons of
ore per day, said A. L. Howard,
mining engineer, who is connected with the property and
came aouth recently on a short
recreation trip.
The mine has been in  regular
production since the fall of 1923,
or since the concentrating  plant
was placed in operation,   lt was
mined on a limited and intermit-'
tent scale before that time,   but!
now it has joined the regular and
dependable   producers   of  the
Northland.    The Saltchuck mine
is the only one of its kind in Al-
aska, in that its chief metal content, or rather the most valuable
part of the metal  content,   is   a
palladium ore which belongs  to
the platinum group.     Saltchuck j
now produces between 4000  and
4500 ounces of palladiumja year, j
and is a very important part  of
the mine product,  as   palladium
is worth about $80  per  ounce. I
The ore is   concentrated   at  the
mine and the   concentrates  are|
shipped to Irvington,  New   Jer-j
sey, for final treatment.   Besides'
palladium, the ore carries  some I
copper, gold and silver. j
The Saltchuck mine is the big- '
gest producer of palladium ore!
on the American continent. Iti
is the belief of mineralogists who j
have visited and inspected South-'
eastern Alaska that it is a coun- j
try likely to contain manydepos-j
its of palladium ore. The Alas-J
ka Weekly is informed that twoj
more palladium properties will be
opened next season.
The Saltchuck mine is owned
by J. E.Chilberg, the former well
known Seattle business man who
now stays on the property and
manages it, and a group of other
Seattle business men.���Alaska

The value of Canada's new Pacific port at Glacier Bay. Tarr
Inlet, is uncertain at present,
owing to the glaciers and impossibility of railroad outlet. It will
be carefully watched, as it is a
matter of scientific interest.
There is a possibility of it being
utilized some time industrially,
M.J.P.Forde. M.E.I.C, District
Engineer for the Dominion gov-
ernmeut, told members of the
Victoria branch of the Engineering Institute of Canada.
Mr Forde illustrated his address by some excellent views,
which showed Point Atkinson
lighthouse, Bamfield cable station, which will be doubled in
size on account of the new cable,
the Prince Rupert cold storage
plant, through which pass 29.-
000,000 pounds of fish annually,
icebergs in Glacier bay, and Mar-
jorie, Ferris and Grand Pacific
glaciers, shoving flow form, pinnacles and appearance of ice-
faces 150 to 250 feet high.
The Duthie Mining Co.'is employing two trucks in transporting ore from the mine to the
railway for shipment to the smelter. Between 50 and 60 men are
employed and shipments are
planned of a carload a day. It
is proposed to install a mill and
power plant during the coming
summer.
E.H.Love is searching for a
"lost mine" which he claims he
found in 1870 or 1871 when driving cattle into the Cariboo.

Local Stocks
(Quotations by H W. M. Rolston & Co)'
Continued good reports arrive
from the southern markets, and
show that the Portland Canal is
becoming much in the public
eye. What has been a boon to a
lot of the older incorporated companies is the fact that practically
no new incorporations are in
sight; this will leave more money
available for the properties that
have stood the dull period of the
winter.
The very mild weather experienced through the winter will
mean a number ot operations
will be opening early the coming
spring, and some of the stocks
are booked for a rapid rise when
operating reports start to arrive.
This is noticeable in Marmot
Metals. Even though this property is still closed, the stock is
coming into active demand.
Stocks of the operating companies remained steady during
the week,
A new feature in the local
market is the fact that a large
amount of money is looking for
secured investment locally, proving that the permanency of the
camp is becoming established.
The market closed as  follows:
