ANNUAL REPORT
ON B.J). SILVER
The report of directors of the
g_-]ukwe Gold Mining & Finance
Co. for the year ending March
311926, is at hard. Ihe remi-
fications of this company are so
extensive, mining as they are in
nil parts of the world, that their
full rjport cannot be covered in
the scope of a newspaper article.
However, their operations as
pertaining to the B.C.Silver, are
here given in a fairly complete
form.
(It s not our fault that Mr.
Banks spells ore shoot "ore
chute." We copy his report as
written.)
C.A.Banks, M.I.M. & M.. en-
Kineer in charge, says:
There hai been no change
since my last report in the holdings of B.C.Silver Mines, Ltd.,
which consists of:���
(1) A group of 9 elaims im-
m -diately adjoining the Premier
mine to the north, and contain-
hg the lateral extension of the
Premier orezone for a distance
of approximately 3000 feet, and,
in addition, the extension in
depth of a further 800 lateral
feet of this orezone, due to the
orezone dipping into the B. C.
Silver ground, and
(2) A group of 8 claims adjoining the Premier  mine  on  the
south side.
Development
In the period under review we
have prospected part of the ore-
zone both laterally and in depth,
the development woik accomplished amounting to a total of
approximately 6000 feet of tunneling and diamond drilling.
Lateral Exploration
The position on March 25th,
1925���the date of my last report
���was that we had located by
tunneling, one ore chute, and,
after an apparent gap in the
zone of about 1000 feet, we had
located by diamond drilling from
the upper or No. 2 level, several
silicified areaa carrying values
which pointed to the existence
of commercial ore in this vicinity
During the past year this area
was diamond drilled from the
lower, or No. 3 level, and it was
������������ally attacked by advancing
this level until a rich orechute
was encountered.
This chute shows continuous
ore on the level for a length of
200 feet���150 feet is of good
billing grade, averaging. I
judge, between $20 and $30 a
ton over a width of about 10
feet, and the remaining 50 feet
���a high grade ore, 30 feet of
which averages $200 a ton over
4 ft- 6 in, in width.
A second chuto of ore was
ne-<t located, about 80 feet  west
of and apparently parallel ing the
above mentioned chute. This
has been drifted on for 50 feet
and, whilst on the whole the
values to date are not commercial, it nevertheless contains
some milling ore, and the probability is that ore of better grade
will be disclosed by further development.
Our diamond drilling indicates
that further ore will be found in
close proximity to the above
The N. E. extension of these
ore occurrences will prebably al'
encounter a granite dyke beyond
which there are good chances of
further ore, as there also are in
the country between them, which
area I do not consider disproved
by the small amount of diamond
drilling we have so far done
there.
There are also ro3sibiiliies of
finding ore on the Texada Fractional mineral ciaim. which will
be later drilled from No. 2 level.
A raise is now being driven to
connect for ventilating purposes. This raise started in
high grade ore which was lost
about 30 feet above the level���
the raise is at a steep angle,
about 75 degrees, and it is prob-
| able that the ore is lying flatter
than this, and that it will later
be found to the S.E. of the raise.
The present position however, is
that poor ventilation compels us
to push the raise through as fast
as possible.
During the months of January
and February we shipped 276
tons of high grade ore from development.
This ore had a gross value of
$37,507, or approximately $135
per ton. in gold and silver, and
the net smeler return amounted
to $34,312.74.
The above developments are
extremely important as they
show that, after an apparent gap
in the orezone of 1000 feet or so,
we have found a repetition of tha
high prade ore chutes similar to
those existing in other parts of
the orezone.
The ore was encountered at a
vertical depth of 650 feet below
the surface, or, allowing for an
estimated dip of 60 degrees, and
for the slope of the hill, a depth
of about 900 feet on the slope of
the vein.
Development alone will tei! us
how these ore chutes will behave
above and below No. 3 level, but
inasmuch as the ore occurrences
are typical of the ore chutes on
the Premier property, the probability is that eur chutes will behave in a similar mannes, and
that on mining they will be found
to be large chutes of irregular
form, with no definite walls, and
with very variable values.
A peculiarity of some of these
orebodies is that, although the
whole orebody may be commer-
ANOTHER railroad milestone
of Western Canada was
passed on April 20, when the
first engine ever constructed in
this part of the Dominion was
turned out of the Canadiin National Railways Transcona Shops
at Winnipeg, where it waa built.
Engine 2747 shown above was constructed entirely in the local shops,
the work being done in addition to
tha regular output of repairs to
other engines. After the various
parts were made, the frames for
the locomotive were laid down on
March 11 and construction was
completed on April 19th, a total of
27 working days, the first run
being made to Winnipeg on the following day.
Number 2747 is classed as a 38%
engine, is capable of main and
branch line freight handling and
has sufficient speed to run the
Transcontinental.    The weight of
the locomotive and tender complete
is 193 tons. After trial runs, It will
be used on main line time freight
trains on the Alberta district of
the Canadian National, where the
best use can be made of this class
of locomotive and where the fuel
saving devices with which it is
equipped will give the most economical results. Number 2748, which
is now in course of construction at
Transcona, will be ready for service in Alberta in May.

of the Terminus, arrived from
Victoria Monday.
cial, there are spots where, due
to the very uneven distribution
of values, a diamond drill can be
put right through the orebody
without showing any values
whatever���this is what often
happens, and it is largely for
this reason that the orechutes
are so difficult to locate.
Extension in Depth
Due to the fa��t that the ore-
zone dips N.W. and passes thru
the boundary of the Simpson M.
C. (Premier Company) into the
B. C. Silver ground between the
Premier No. 3 a?id No. 4 levels,
we get on the Oakville Fraction
the downward continuation of
the orebodies existing on the
Premier Simpson M.C.
My report of last year stated
that diamond drilling had proved
values over a length of 200 feet
in the area marked "B" on plan.
Further diamond drilling during
the year has increased this to
approximately 300 feet.
In addition to this, the Premier Gold Mining Company are
now mining a chute of ore between their No. 3 and No. 4 levels right on the boundary line.
This chute is about 10 feet in
width where I saw it and I judge
from the mineralization that it
contains good values.
We may later find that this
chute will connect up with chute
B and that we will get more or
less continuous ore along the
whole length of the boundary

YOUNG GEOLOGIST
DIES  IN  PERU
William Donald Burton, geologist, died in Samne, Peru, on
March 16. Mr Burton graduated
from the University of British
Columbia in 1923 and shortly
thereafter was employed by the
Premier Gold Mining Co. Ltd. as
assistant geologist under the direction of A. H. Means, and later
became geologist. During the
winter of 1924 1925 he pursued
graduate studies with distinction
at the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, receiving the degree of master of science in geology. A part of the summer of
3925 was spent in field work in
eastern Canada with the Canadian Geological Survey, and in
the fall of the same year he went
to Peru as assistant geologist and
scouting engineer for the Northern Peru Mining & Smelting Co.
It was on a field trip in Peru that
he contracted the illness which
proved fatal. His first and last
contribution to geologic literature consists of a paper describing the Premier ore deposits.
This article is to appear in an
early issue of Economic Geology.
In Mr Burton's death the mining
industry loses a young man who
at the outset of his career showed great promise and one who,
had he lived, would have gone
far.���Engineering and Mining

TELEGRAPH CREEK TRAIL A DUTY
THE word received last week by the
Board of Trade to the effect that the Provincial Minister of Mines will undertake
this season the reconnaisance for a trail
from Stewart to Telegraph Creek,  can
rightly be termed good news, for not only
Stewart but also the country tributary to
Telegraph Creek, for if this trail is so
constructed as to enable the winter mails
and travel to and from that interior district to come out via Stewart instead of as
at the moment, by an 800 to 1000-mile de-
justified in their expenditures for the development of Vancouver Island? If so,
then why not an expendituree of $30,000
for the development of the country between f tewart and Telegraph Creek, as
well as the territory tributary to that
place, just as rich in natural resources?
How can the debt of this Province be
reduced unless the revenues are increased? What section of the Province will increase the Provincial revenues as rapidly
as the section that will be benefitted by
this trail? NONE! Then the Government would be fully jnstified in the construction of this trail at the earliest date
possible, and negligent in its duty to the
whole Province if it does not.

REASONS FOR EMPIRE DAY
We in Canada observe two national
holidays, and it is well that we do, for
they remind us of the great heritage which
is ours, and the sacrifices made by our forefather! that we of this generation might enjoy the
freedom and liberty, rights and protection, that
we do. One of these is the 1st of July, and the
other, celebrated last Monday, is tbe 24th of May,
Empire Day.
It is well for us to pause in the rush of modern life and contemplate t.-e meaning of  these

days.   Empire Day, as is well known, originated
facilitated and speeded up.
There is nothing tike isolation to retard the development of any new country.
Cut 800 miles off even the winter travel to
the Telegraph Creek-Dease Lake country,
and watch it grow, and the revenue of the
Government from it increase.
Such a trail as suggested would open
a country for development as large in area
as Vancouver Island, and just as rich in
natural resources of minerals, coal, fur,
land, timber and water power.
All that is required to make this trail
a reality is the construction of a 20 or 30
mile link, and improvement of the existing trails. If this link is let by contract,
in sections of two or three miles, or four
at the outside, to men who want to stay in
that country���and there are a number-
it can become an accomplished fact; for an
expenditure of some $30,000!
Have the present Provincial Govern,
ment or the Governments of the past been
in the annual commeration of the birth-day of
that illustrious queen, Victoria, under whose ben-
eficient soverignty the British Empire made such
great strides, and at her death has been maintained as Empire Day, and as such rightly celebrated by the 518,684,000 people composing the
British Empire, as the one day in the year by
which to remind ourselves of the great heritage
to which we are heir, with all its hardens and responsibilities spread over 18,344,111 square miles
of the surface of this earth, embracing in its
folds every known type, color and religion, peculiar to the peoples of this earth, from the most
highly ciyilized down through every strata of humanity to the veriest savages.
General Smuts, that brilliant leader of the
Boers 25 years ago, recently said: "The British
Empire is the greatest force for peace that the
world has ever known."
The Hon. Justice Field of the United States,
speaking in Canada a few years ago of British
law, justice and order said: "That is the secret of
the British Empire���that it stands for order, for
the sacredness of human life,  for the protection
of every interest, however humble I am  tilled
with wonder���you are part of a mighty Empire.

Justice and   Righteousness  will

That noted enemy of everything British, Cardinal Manning,
stated: "A greater miracle in
the whole history of mankind I
have never read of than that the
numerically small British race
should rule 240,000,000 (he could
have said 315,000,000) of the
Oriental races. So wonderful a
phenomenon is not to be found in
any record of the world.
Professor Muth of Munich,
Germany, said: "A world Empire, such as the British, is the
work of God���The British Empire was not created by human
plans -But no other nation on
earth can destroy the British
Empire, for it is necessary in
the defence of the liberty of the
world."
And so can be cited in endless
chain, tributes to our Empire
and race, by friend and foe alike
the world over; from Europe
down through Africa, east
through Persia, and across Asia,
through every creed and color;
the greatest miracle in the known
history of mankind, carrying
justice, freedom, liberty and
progress to the ends of the earth
A league of free peoples of every
color, creed and stage of development, working out a high and
still higher destiny, carrying the
rest of the world in her wake.
Great reason have we for celebrating Empire Day.

ANNUAL REPORT
ON B._C. SILVER
(Continued from Page 1)
line of the Simpson M. C. Although this part of the property
will undoubtly yield a considerable tonnage of good grade ore,
it must be remembered that this
is not immediately accessible to
us, as it will have to be reached
either by a shaft or a low level
tunnel.
Equipment
An air compressor of 1000 c. f.
capacity is now being erected,
and will probably be in use early
in April; in this connection the
mine is now being relaid with
larger air mains.
An electric storage battery locomotive is being installed.
A short aerial tram waa installed from the portal of No. 3
tunnel to the road, J of a mile
below, to facilitate the handling
of high grade ore, and an   additional bunkhouse was built.
South Group
The rocks on this group are
similar to those existing on the
B. C. Silver North Group, and
there is an attractive shear zone
cutting across it.
During the summer of 1925 we
commenced a surface contour
survey of the group, and this is
now about half completed.
This work will be of assistance
in later helping us to intelligently
prospect the ground.
General
The ore bodies have been found
as a result of close study of the
geological conditions and a com-
hensive and systematic program of tunneling and diamond
drilling of the ore zone, which
scheme of development was decided upon after we lost the first
ore body marked "A."
The present position is that
five ere chutes have been located
to date. Some time in April we
will have our new equipment installed and we will then be able
to develop more rapidly, and in
this way we hope to quickly put
the property in a position where
we can figure ore reserves.
Conclusion
I have to thank the Premier
Gold Mining Company for the
assistance they have rendered us
during the year.
I am pleased to record the excellent and loyal service rendered
by the mine superintendent, C.
B. North, and his staff, and I
wish to thank the Selukwe directors and shareholders for their
steady support over the long
period which has been necessary
to develop the property into
a mine.

Local Stocks
(By H. W. M. Rolston ft Co)
On authentic information being made public that the Premier interests had dropped negotiations for tho Indian, there
was a heavy slump in this stoek.
As this stock wss purely a gamble, all the large shareholders
appear to be quite ready to take
their losses, and in consequence
large blocks are being offered
with very few buyers. Until
some future program is outlined
for the Indian, even lower prices
than at present prevail are looked for.
Dunwell is showing marked
signs of advancement This
stock is becoming; very tightly
held, and more and more by the
investing public. Reports from
the mine are more than favorable
Independence appeared very
active oa the southern markets,
undonbtedly caused by tbe facts
that the company's property is
being examined by American
capital In consequence higher
levds are looked for in this stock
L AL showed continued weakness with very few buyers in
the market
Porter Idaho wss in slight demand on the southern markets,
but the price being too low to
tempt any of the large shareholders.
Premier continues to hold at
the new low levels, though by
previous records the present low
price on this stock is only temporary,
On the rumor spreading that
B.C.Silver had run into some exceptionally high grade ore, this
stock was brought into demand
locally at higher levels.
