wealth nf tho mineral bolt rotcrrcd
to asserts itsoll iu tho st. Kugene
mine on tho east side ol Moyie lake,
Kast Kootenay, which property, ao-
cording lo tho public records, produced more than 75 per cent of the
forty-seven million pounds of lead
sine I tt'd iu Canada iu tin- year 1007
and about the same proportion of
the entire product of tlu* Dominion
iu the years 1908-0. Tho St. JSugene
is easily tire most important silver-
load property in Camilla and naturally attracts public attention not alono
lo itself as a source of wealth and
prosperity but to the resources of
the locality in whieli it is situated.
One mine makes many.
The ore in the St. Eugene occurs iu
two roughly parallel fissure /ones
having a general strike of about west
and cast, or iu other words, across
Movie lake. One cannot study the.
line of the mouths of tlu* tunnels
without thinking that the fissures
containing the ore extend across under the lake bottom. This readily-
fi inned t hei iry was convert id iut o
certainty when Johnson staked tbe
Aurora Group, consisting ol five
claims, the Aurora,    Durango, Etna,
Portland and Horseshoe, and al     llie
same time preempted I*1-1 acres ot
the peninsula in front of the claims
for mill and buildlhg sites and general agricultural purposes,
The development of the Aurora
ground hy shaft ami drifts shows
lhat, as in the case "f the Si Eugene, there are two fissure zones
having a strike corresponding    with
lhat nu the opposite side of the lake.
It is now conceded by the besl authorities that tho ore bodies are continuous from one side »>f the lake to
the other. The best proof ol the
general acceptance ol this view is
thnt tbe bottom of Moyio lake has
been staked as mineral ground and
upwards nf $68,000 ipenl In sinking a
caisson to bed rock to lorm the upper pari of ji shall intended lo In-
sunk to catch the veins exposed bj
erosion on the Aurora.
Poi some time pasl this propel I j
has been attracting a great deal .>(
public attention There have been
sin'r- and mtnoi- nl strikes on
tin* ground, It, therefore, seemed lo

lo the mine is about a thousand
yards, couumiiiicutioii between thu
property und the town being maintained hy means of u gusolino launch.
On the south side of Aurora buy is
the compressor plant, lngersoll pattern, supplying power for five drills.
No money has horn wusted here in
elaborate machinery. The plant is
efficient. One can see how cleverly
means arc adapted to the ends in
view al every turn, but this might
he expected since a considerable
amount of the development has been
done hy practical miners who, instead of taking cash lor their work,
were glad to accept stock in the
company, which has been capitalized
at 11,000,000. The president is

manager and mine foreman respectively are Harry II. Dimock and
Michael Torpy. both of whom were
lor years in the St. Eugene and are
thus thoroughly familiar with all the
peculiarities of the veins and formation in which the ore Is found.
Near the compressor plant the
company has secured fifty acres ol
excellent flat land lying between the
slope of the hill and the watei
the lake. As the angle of the hill is
about <t"> degrees from tlie horizontal
one can realize how gravitation can

is delivered from the tunnels until it

for sampling purposes,
The quartered sample was sent to

suycr at Nelson. Tlie following is a
copy of his letter and analysis:
Nelson, H. C, lltli April, 1810.
Messrs. The Aurora Mining and Milling Co., Moyie, B.C.:
Gentlemen: I have carefully examined, assayed and analysed tho
sample submitted to me ou Wednesday, April 13th, and find that it
gave the following results:     *   ,
Silver, li.ll ozs.; lead, 17.9 per cent,
zinc, 38.3 per cent; manganese, nil;
cadmium, nil; iron, li.7 per cent; copper, nil; silica (insoluble) 13.1 per
cent; lime, 3.6 per cent and sulphur,
20.8 per cent.
Respectfully submitted,
Yours very truly,
(Signed)     E. W. Widdowson.
This sample, which may he confidently accepted as a fair average o'
the general run of the output, carried $18.7!) per ton En all values, so
that tbe owners have lo deal with »
fairly high-grade product in whic'
zinc largely predominates.
In the early development of tin
property a shaft was sunk about six
ty feel, whore the ore rs-lcroppe-1
above lhe present No 2 tun.--* Th*-.
work was iu ore tor the entire distance until a fault, or slip, was encountered which cut off the ore absolutely at that point. The conditions indicated a displacement carrying the ore body with it lo the south
of the shaft, and accordingly a man
named Sullivan, who had a bond on
the property at the time, drove lhe
No. 2 tunnel about 21.0 feet west aud
then cross-cut about forty feel
south to get under the sliafl. An
upraise from the cross-cut failing to
catch the ore hody, lie continued his
drift in a westerly direction for
another 250 feet or so without meeting any very encouraging indications
beyond such as proved a very extended system of mineralization all
1 hrougli t he property * Sullivan
threw up his bond, and the present
owners carried on the drill from the
cross-cut, hut running it a little to
the north oi his work. The ore
body was encountered after only
nine feet of drift had heen run—a
beautiful example of Iho strange luck
that attends mining Sullivan missed a fortune by less than ten feel.
This shoot of mineral was traced
west and north for a distance ol 280
feet and at that point the fault
I which was met with In the shaft was
again encountered and the ore again
cut off. At a distance of Hill feci
from  the eross-cut  an  upraise     was
! started in the ore and carried   con*
I tinuously in good values to a height
lol ntoety feet, where the shoot is
7) feel iu width. At this place
some 500 Ions of ore was stoped out
and a very large quantity left iii position for mining      The vein of   ore

are naturally greatly Interested iu

process fm the economical treatment
of zinciferous ores, tlu-ir North Star

ore.     They have secured control of a

for Which purpose, Ihey propose establishing a smelter near Kimberley
and will proceed to actively develop

Star. Heretofore profitable operation of these mines has been Interdicted by difficulties in ibe treatment
of the zinc-lend product, which diffl-

Iv closed this market. II the ore
mined is not to lie proiit less on the
dump, some method requires to be
devised which will successfully treat
these ores and enable the mine owners to export the output of their
mines ns a finished product, either
as spelter or z.lnc oxide. In tbe
hope ot accomplishing this much desired result, a zinc smeltery was
erected in Alberta, hut proved unsuccessful. This failure was not altogether due to the character ot the
ores treated, but was due to inherent
defects in the plant, introduced by
Ihe designer in an endeavor to Improve upon the Itelglan model. Prior
lo the erection of this plant, Mr. K.
T, Snyder obtained a paterfl for an
electric process and a furnace -fentgn-
electric furnace was erected iu Van
(•aval, which has been in operation
eouver, but  proved unsuccessful.   The
matter was not allowed to drop,

Interested in these experiments de
serve much praise for their porscvet
ance in trying to overcome a real
difficulty, consuming valuable    time
and costing much money, it is to he

did not, first of all, investigate the
electric process invented hy Mr. De

lead to success, requires that information be obtained not hy reading
patents, hut by invest igal ion and actual observation on tbe spot of all
that has been accomplished in the direction in wbieb improvement Is
sought to be introduced.
There are, at present, four processes invented in Kurope tor the
production of metallic! zinc or zinc
oxide from complex zinc ores, whieli

This question of zinc brings us, al
a stroke, to the kernel ol the business situation of tin* company. Tlie
main product ol the mine is /.mi',
and, therefore, it is from this mineral that the sbarcliortlerv must look
for their revenue. There can be uu
possible blinking of tbe fact that
the ure exists in the property, and.
iu proportion to the extent of tl.
development (1,000 feet ol drifting,
415 feet of shaft, winze and upraise),
unusually large quantities. To
convert this ore into revenue two
things are necessary; first, it must be
milled or concentrated, and secondly
it must he marketed,
The three metals that are essential
(or the maintaiueiice anil progress of
civilization are copper, iron anil /.inc.
Gold ami silver are accessary and
highly useful, hut they are not essential in the sense that iron, copper
aud /.Inc are. Cupper and iron
widely distributed all uver the wo'd,
while the occurrence uf zinc is. in
general terms, confined to those
areas where lead ores* are fomni, and
tbis condition applies, apparently, to
(Iermany, Belgium, Algeria, New
South Wales, Spain and tlie United
States. In the States fur years past
the home supply has hardly hetn
keeping level with the home demand,
and according to the most reliable
sources of information the Missouri
ores, the chief source ol supply for
the American market, are becoming
rapidly exhausted. I'nder the Ding-
ley tariff during the years 1903-1-5
the I'niteil Slates imported miile u
considerable amount of those badly
needed ores from Hritish Columbia,
which were treated at the tola smelter in Kansas. Notwithstanding the
fact that under the recent Payne
tariff law tbe conditions are not so
favorable for the exportation nl the
B. C* lines to the States, slill. the
I.ucky Jim can sell a -Ml pei cent
/inc product at a protit and pay Mil
a ton tarifl duty and soim where iu
the neighborhood of $.« per ton
freight to the Empire Zinc company
at Denver, Col.
However, Itolh politicians and
those who command the metal markets of the world know thai the
tarifl wall must go down before the
pressure ol necessity (or un essential
article wliich we in B. C. possess in
abundance and which is cither uutur
ally scarce or nearly exhausted south
i| the Boundary line. Ever if the
I'nitcd States market were absolute-
h closed there still remains the market of the world—England, Germany
and Belgium especially where the
keenest demand exists   for all trades
if ilno ores.
In the year IflOS the world used
some 072,000 tons of /inc. In 1909
it is estimated thut close upon BOO,-
000 tons were   usitl.  while  tbe activ-
of    the     demand   was at muny
points outstripping the power of
upply. With every expansion in the
use ol electricity comes a corresponding expansion in ihe demand for
Bine 1) is as essential ir. tlm industry ns copper. That is t'*.• of

Special commission under tbe charge
il Walter  Kendall  Ingalls.  the editor
•f the "Mining ami Engineering
Itiurnal" of New York and the
greatest living authority on the /inc
question, to report on the fine ores
( thf province nnd on the best mode
I separating them Into a commercially profitable product. Only the
other day the Dominion government
made a grant of |5ff,000 to lie applied iu pt.diic.il experiments to
discover the best mode and appliances for the effective treatment of
those ores. The entire future success of the silver-lead mining industry is hound up lo such an extent
with this question of successful zinc
separation that a method must be
devised whereby an economical separation can be effected of tin* silver,
lead and zinc contents of tbe Koote
nay ores without any undue sacrillce
01 the values in any one metal. When
that method is decided upon, aud the
logic of events cannot permit Its
long postponement, the zincs ol U.
(V will dominate the markets of tin-
world and properties like the Aurora,
running low in silver nnd lead, but
high in zinc values, will prove tbe
permanent money makers ol tlie province.
Iteturnlng for a moment to the
analysis of tlie Aurora ore it should
be particularly noted lhat those
dangerous adiillrant* ot zinc, namely
inaugtigi-.se, cadmium uud cupper,
arc not present, while the Iron content is about the same as Uml ol
the ores from the Lucky Jim, Slocan
Star, Ruth and other zinc shippers
ot the Slucun.
What the Aurora needs In order t.
make large profits is a suitable con
centrating plain. A mine ol tins
character without such an equipment
is somewhat akin to u big timber
property without a sawmill The
owners have the raw ir.aten.it [or

By the Herald   Publishing Company,
F. J. Deane, Managing Editor.
From uil quarters conic reports
renewed activity in 111111111);. Districts that for some time past have
been more or less neglected arc now
ron-ivinR al tent inn. Mines are bc-inn
opeiml u[) ami prospects developed un
every hand. Tho nre shipments sn
(ar this year indicate a (ar greater
output than lhat ol last year. V.\-
tensive experimental operations are
heinji conducted with a view lo arriving at a commercial basis [ur the
exploitation ol the /inc resources uf
West Kootenay, Ono branch of these
experiments is being carried un right
in Craiihronk, hut so [ar insufficient
advance has been made to permit
any publicity. That the siuressdil
elucidation <>[ the problem of profitable treatment of zinciferous ores
means much to tbis district must he
obvious to any person who has the
least knowledge ol tbe ore bodies of
blast Kootenay. The work now being carried on under the auspices oi
the Mines Department of the Dominion government will, it is hoped, Ik
the means of successfully elucidating
Ibis problem, and should il so result
un immense impetus to mining operations in this section will ensue. We
publish today un interesting account
ut the Aurora mine, at Moyie, which
will serve In emphasize the need of
un curly solution of the zinc treatment problem.
In connection with mining activity
m these parts it is especially worthy
or note that Messrs Mackenzie und
Mann, the railroad builders', purpose
erecting a smelter ut Kimherley in
the very near future und to proceed
actively with lhe development o[
their mining properties in that vicinity. Messrs. Mackenzie and Mann
haw secured control of a new chemical process of mineral extraction, the
invention of an Ontario chemist,
which it is believed will solve the difficulties heretofore encountered in the
treatment of zinc bearing ores.
Mr. 0. J. South, tlie well known
superintendent o( the Vancouver
Children's home, was a visitor in
town during tlie week, engaged 011 one
of his missions nf charity. The
work being done by this Vancouver
institution certainly merits, as it
has in tlie pass received, the generous
support of the public In the course
of a long chat with the Herald, Vir
■South told many interesting stories
hearing upon the work to which he
has devoted the last nine or ten
years. Incidentally Mr. South mentioned that in the near future it wus
tbe intention of the home manage
incut to bold a tag day throughout
tlie province, t'ranbrook will not be
overlooked on this occasion, due notice of winch wilt Im* given in these
columns Cranhrook citizens, in
common with those uf the rest ot the
province, we feel sure, will be plea*
ed to participate in this effort tu
raise funds for so deserving an institution. No one who listened to
Mr. South's stories ol youngsters
saved from miserable surroundings
and futures practically foredoomed to
evil, coul I fail io respond cheerfully
to any appeal for aid to further tin-

reported the matter to Edward Klwcll and Stephen II. lloskins nnd
llogan very soon found himself lauded in the lock-up. When the case
came before .Magistrate Joseph Ryan,
llogan pleaded guilty, hut said, ua
usual, that he remembered nothing of
what had happened, Tin* magistrate
decided to hear exactly what was ilu*
nature of the offence with a view to
putting a stop to the Intolerable nuisance referred to, After uu adjournment the evidence of Messrs. El Wei I

doing the needful with a clever shot.
This well earned success kepi the

they repeatedly just missed scoring
