For some time past an English
mining syndicate have beeu looking
at the Jumbo mine at Illecillewaet,
owned by Corbin nnd Kennedy.   In
the spring  Mr. A- P. Wilson,  of
Walker, I'eel k Wilson, ot Whitehaven,  Cumberland,   England,  inspected the mine m the iuterosts'of
the company. He was highly pleased
with the appearance of the property,
and was not slow in making the possibilities of the coup known.   As a
result of his reports, Mr. Johu Grant
iad Mr.  Johu   B.   Sanderson,  of
Loudon, Eng., the latter representing
a weal'hy miuing syndicate, accompanied by Mr. Jame-t Beunallack, of
Grass Valley, Nevada County, Cal.,
paid a visit to the camp this week to
examine the Jumbo, with a view to
purchasing the property.   Mr. Beu-
mill.iok is a practical miner of many
years' experience, as well as a professional expert, and after examining
the mine be, without hesitation, pro-
pronounces it a true fissure vein, iu
the right formation to ensure a good
miue,  and  altogether a wonderful
properly.   The formation of rook, ho
deolarcs, are the best be has ever
seen, and if the Illecillewaet mines
were in California they would be producing millions of dollars to-day.
As a result of this examination aud
the recommendation ot Mr. Reuual-
luck, the English syndicate represented by Mr. Sanderson will purchase the Jumbo from Messrs. Corbin
und Kennedy for ��200,000, all the
necessary papers baring been drawn
