WHAT MINING MEANS TO ALL
Financial Post of Toronto, mining benefits
the wholejcommunity and should receive
the financial support of the public.
"The ralue of the mineral production
of northern Ontario for 1924 amounted to
the splendid total of $68,284,658, accord-
ing to a statement of the Hon. Chas. Mc-
Crea, Ontario Minister of Mines. Of this
amount $33,000,000 went for wages, $25,-
000,000 for supplies, and $10,000,000 for
dividends.
"The mineral production for British
Columbia in 1924 was $48,704,604. Taking
the ratio of expenditures as above, there
would have been distributed thronghout
the province; wages; $23,000,000; supplies,
$18,000,000; dividends, $7,000,000; total,
$48,000,000."
Mr Browning goes on to point out
how vitally interested everyone should be
THE B.C. Chamber of Mines, of Vancouver, and its energetic secretary, Henry
Browning, are doing yeoman service on
behalf of the mining industry of this Pro- \ in developing the mining industry of this

As to conditions  generally   in
Atlin, Mr Gaul   asserts   having
found there   a   very  optimistic
atmosphere, which in  his   opinion is in every  respect warranted.   The Engineer is employing!
about 100 men,  mostly   on   construction work, made necessary I
by the addition of another  unit
to the present 50-ton ball   mill,
which is in operation.   The mine
is at  present producing   bullion
and concentrates.   The management is also adding considerably
to the mine buildings, and to the
power plant on Wann river. One
thing that struck Capt. Gaul very
forcibly    was    the   exceptional
courtesy, which he   appreciated
very much, shown   him   by   Mr
Brinker, manager of the   Engineer.
The Gleaner property, adjoining the Engineer on the north,
is undertaking a progressive devel ipment program under the
management of O.B.Smith, formerly of Anyox.
The Ruffner, a silver-lead property on Fourth ef July croek,
is being developed by the Federal Mining and Smelting Co., a
Guggenheim subsidiary, with reported go��d results.

"BIG MIKE" GROUP
LOOKS IMPORTANT
Further work on the "Big
Mike" group discovered a short
time ago by Mike Milos, J. D.
McDonald and Harry Wilkinson
about six miles down the canal
from Stewart, has consisted of
stripping the quartz vein for a*
distance of 200 feet and putting
in a few shots alonR the vein,
which is from two inches to 16
inches in width. A considerable
amount of the ore was brougt to
town, and in nearly every piece
free gold is visible to the naked
eye. The vein matter is a typical gold-bearing pearl quartz and
carries no other metat than gold
and a small amount of silver.
The discovery was made only 70
feet from the shore. There are
no transportation problems, and
it appears that the find may be
of considerable importance.
Local Stocks
(Quotations by H.W.M. Rolston & Co)
At the time of going to press
full reports have not yet been
received of the Dunwell meeting.
The results of this, it is expected
will have an appreciable ofTect
on all local stocks. The conlin-
tinued demand from England
for lead is having its effect on|
all silver-lead properties and it
expected that stocks in silver-
lead properties will soon come
into their own again. The rapid
advance of radio is having a
marked effect on the copper
market and higher prices in copper are confidently expected.
The continued demand for stocks
in shipping properties has caused these stocks to remain steady
during the present slump, although the whole market during
the past week showed a better
feeling of optimism.
Local stocks closed as follows:

POTENTIAL POWER
SOURCE REPORTED
Interest in mining circles has
been aroused by reported discovery of a potential hydro-electric
site on the upper Salmon river,
Portland Canal District, from
which power might be developed
to serve mining properties between Premier mine and Divide
lake, says the Vancouver Sun.
The power, it is said, would
come from waterfalls which have
been hitherto unmapped and
would be developed on the claims
of the Northland Mining Co.
Two engineers are reported to
have gone north to conduct a
hydro-electric suryey. It is estimated by officials of the Northland Mining Company that considerably more than 20,000 horse
power could be developed from
the falls and the natural reservoirs of the district.
Shortage of water for power
purposes in winter has been one
of the principal problems of mining operations in the Portland
Canaal district. Fuel oil for operating compressors and other
machinery is expensive, due to
the cost of transportation. The
Premier mine has used each winter large quantities of fuel oil
for its Diesel engines which
serve as auxiliary power to meet
water shortage in winter.
Should the falls near the Troy
group of claims owned by the
Northland Mining Company
| prove as satisfactory as reports
j from the company would indicate
j say mining men, the result would
i be not enl> of advantage to the
Trey mine but to its numerous
neighbors, all in the early development stage.
