WEST KOOTENAY MINES.
Paper Read Before Mining Association of Quebec.
Subjoined is a paper read before a
recent meeting of the General Mining
'   oeiation of Quebec, by E. D. Ingall,
M.F-, Chief of Milling Statistics, Ot_
tawa—
Until a comparatively recent per-
i« } the mineral production of the
Province of British Columbia was al-
mo3t entirely confined to coal and
gold, the latter chiefly obtained by
washing the shallow auriferous grr-
vels distributed widely throughout
the. province. *
The discovery and working of silver-bearing veins was all, with the
* exception of, a few scattering discoveries, subsequent to 1880.
It is not the*intention in this paper
to go into any of the details as to the
history pf the silver mines of the province, which are so admirably dealt
with in the report of Dr. G. M. Dawson, on the. mineral wealth of British
Columbia, issued with the annual report ofthe Geological Survey for 1887.
, A few items may, however, not be
amiss as prefacing the more immediate, subject of this paper, viz., the
more newly discovered silver mines
in West Kootenay. '     '
. According to Dr. Dawson, the large
deposit of galena now known as the
, Blue Bell mine, and situated, on the
east side of Kootenay lake, was discovered as early as 1825 bv the botanist Douglas, and amongst the earliest discoveries of this class of ores is
that in. the Coast range of mountains,
near Hope, on the Fraser river, in
1871. The ore discovered there was
described as argentiferous gray copper, containing lead, copper, antimony and iron.
In 1882 a number of claims were
located on discoveries at Stump lake,
in Yale district, on veins, carrying
v ores rich in gold and silver, and from
that date till 1889 other camps came
into greater or less prominence in
that district and in those of East and
West Kootenay, constituting together
the south east corner of the province.
At the time of the writing of Dr.
Dawson's.repor*, in 1888, argentiferous ores had also been reported from
various portions of the northern dis-,
tricts; in Cariboo, / Gmineca, Cassiar,
and farther north in the Yukon country, but none of these have come
into any prominence so far, doubtless
on account of the many drawbacks
due to lack of gocd, communications
with the outside world.
Before passings then to the subject
proper of this paper, it may be well
to point put on the map the various
other districts in the province where
veins carrying argentiferous ores
have been found and more or less
worked.   .; ■ ■ a'';'" ;.■''• •
It is noticeable that at most of these
points the ores are mixed, carrying
1 much copper sulphurets and are often
antimonial and arsenical, differing
m this respect from the; prevalent
ore of the Ainsworth, Hendryx, Slocan and Illecillewaet districts, where
argentiferous galenas and the oro-
ducts of their decomposition take precedence over all others.
The detailed description of the
Slocan district following, serves
equally well for the Illecillewaet.
Passing south we come to the well-
known Slocan camps, the position
and details of which are well shown
on the map.
Late in the fall of 1891, a party of
discouraged prospectors were making
their way over the mountains towards Ainsworth, and being very short
of provisions, were making the very
best time possible, when, in descending a gulley on the east fork of Carpenter creek, which runs into Slocan
lake, they lighted upon extensive
outcroppings of ore.. Without loss of
time claims were staked out and specimens- secured which, when assayed,
gave such encouraging returns as to
cause a rush to the district in the fol-

lowing -spring, and the consequent
discovery of .a large number of rich
veins, covering an area of 10 miles
by 17, along the valley of the Kaslo
river and between its headwaters at
Bear lake and the east shore of Slocan lake. The rocks in this" district
present the same, features as those in
the vicinity of Illecillewaet.-
The bulk of the claims, in the district have been staked out on veins
cutting rocks of the black, shale
series with their associated calcareous
bands. They show the same variations m character, being soft and
highly graphitic at places, and.harder and more compact at others, generally from the proximity of intrusive
igneous rocks, and, are thus, often
highly altered, showing chistolite,
etc. . These intrusive rocks are
found throughout the district, showing
as dykes of varying thicknesses.
They are l*ght in color, witn a preponderance of the acidic mineral constituents, orthoclase felspar and quartz
constituting, as a rule, the bulk of
their substance. This association of
rocks in general occupy the southern
side of the valley of the Kaslo river,
and extend some miles to the south,
where they are said to abut on a large
area of granite.
On the north side of the valley of
tne same river, the schistose series of
rocks is largely developed, being in
many places scrpentinous. In this
series of rocks a number of veins
have been located. They show as
fissures, varying in thickness;from a
few inches to several feet, carrying
the ore, which is galena, in solid ribs.
These ore ribs are generally located
in a bed of soft Ochery gahgue, sometimes of a pasty consistency. The
thickness of the ribs vary from a few
inches to a foot or two.   Occasionally

the walls ofthe fissure are lined with
quartz crystals and the enclosing
rock , is rusted some few inches in
from the edge of the vein.
Veins of solid quartz also occur occasionally, but those seen carried
very little mineral. The veins in
this schistose series of rocks are apt
to be free from some oi those irregularities occasionally shown by those
in the black shale series. The veins
in the shale series present similar
features to those already described,
as occurring in the snme series in
the Illecillewaet district. Whilst
they frequently jun for long distances
with thc formation, they are constantly found cutting across it.
Where a vein is found cutting
across, or in the proximity of one of
the calcareous bands previously mentioned, thej' are apt to show some interesting features, widening out or
forming large pockets of ore in connection with the vein. Some of the
big shows of the district have been
of this nature and have proved very
disappointing, their pockety nature
being shown in development. When,
however, the parent vein, has been
located, it has been found to be per.
sistent, which will be found to be true
for most of the fissures proper. Where
they cut the slates,, the veins . at
places show a considerable ifidth of
brecciated vein stone, -angular pieces
ofthe enclosing rock being cemented,
together by quartz and other gangue
and ore minerals. The commonest
occurrence; however, is to find veins
from a few inches to two or three feet
in width, carrying galena in solid
ribs, nuggets"and boulders in a rusty
ochreous and sometimes clayey filling.
The galena varies, in grain, from
large cube down to t^at with a fine
steely fracture. It is sometimes enriched by the presence of ruby silver
and the richer silver minerals scattered through it. What is known as
"carbonated" ore occurs with the galena, but this is really not carbonate
of lead, as one might suppose, hut is
the ochreous gangue material in
which the silver occurs disseminated
in, the metallic or native condition,
and in the condition of. the richer silver minerals with doubtless some
carbonate of lead. The whole probably results from the decomposition
of the gangue and of the silver bearing galena of the vein.
Other minerals are associated with
the galena in places and in various
quantities. Of these, zinc-blende is
the most prominent; iron pyrites occurring in fair quantity, and other
metallic minerals being only occasional.
The pure galena in solid ribs seem
to affect more particularly the narrower veins, cutting the shales, whereas the big developments in the calcareous parts carry generally a large
proportion of zinc blende, which les--
sens their value, this mineral being
objected t j by the smelters, when its
percentage is large.    Another class
oi the veins found show various rich
arsenical and antimonial silver min
erals in a  gangue composed principally of quartz.
Development work on these veins
has in a number of cases opened up
most promising exposures of ore. In
one case a tunnel was seen on a new
prospect where, for all its length of
about 75 feet, it was estimated that
the ground broken had been from 50
to GO per cent, pure galena, assaying
125 oz. to the ton. Or again, at another place, a prospect pit was seen
showing a two-foot rib of absolutely
pure steel galena with ruby silver,
the ore assaying 860 oz. to the ton.
When one sees such exposures of ores
as these, at a number, of places in the
district, as the result of merely preliminary development work by the
prospectors themselves, and taking
into account the many other veins
found in the district, having good, if
not quite so extensive, shows of ore,
one cannot help feeling that the district has a very hopeful future before
:t
These ores are rich in silver, as
shown by the result of some 50 assays
made in the chemical branch of the
Geological Survey, of specimens of
galena collected by myself; which
run from 50 oz. to 360, the majority
from the black shale series in the
Slocan district averaging perha_ s 1G0
to 125 oz. per ton. f Some specimens
of.so called carbonate 'gave little or
no silver, while two specimens of this
class of ore from different claims gave
700 oz. and 1,630 respectively. The
galena from the veins on the schistose
formation seems to average lower
in silver than that occurring in the
shale formation.
The other districts of West Kootenay now prominent in respect of their
silver ores are Ainsworth, Hehdrvx
and Toad Mountain districts, all of
which have been well described by
Dr. G. M. Dawson, of the Survey, in
his report on West Kootenay. The
ores of the latter district, ho;vever,are
more mixed, copper and the richer
silver minerals appearing with the
galena. They also carry a little
gold. Other camps which have come
into prominent notice of late are those
of Goat river and Trail creek.
Three smelters have been erected
in the district, one at Golden, one at
Revelstoke, and one at Tilot Bay on
Kootenay lake. The latter, however,
has not been completed owing to a
disagreement among the capitalists
concerned.
The two former works consist each
of a single water jacket furnace with
roasters and appurtenances, but the
Pilot Bay works have been projected
on a more extensive scale. The plan

district shows a bright example to the

Sung, a gardener,, was shot dead Saturday night, on the highway between
Vancouver and New Westminster by
unknown parties and for no ostensible
reason, unless it be Highbinder revenge for fancied wrong.    The next
night another Chinese was brutally
assaulted in Nanaimo by a brace- of
white toughs, who were promptly arrested.    Next came the mysterious
cutting of the throat of a man in North
, Vancouver and the finding of a bloody
knife outside his window, his  bed-
mate being unaware of the murderous  attempt  on his  comrade's  life,
though sleeping by his side.    Following these came a series of robberies
and hold-ups within the confines of
the several-coast cities, showing conclusively that villainy was rampant
and the crooked fraternity at large.
The police authorities have apparently been powerless to check the moral
disorder, and the lower country appeal's to be steeped with crime.   This
is bad; very bad, indeed.   The province has had an unsavory reputation
for  several  months  past, and  last

was born in poverty, his childhood
was pinched and meagre, his youth
joyless, and suddenly he-entered into
a popularity that, gave- him; a" high
plapein. the literary-and aristocratic
circles of Parisiamsociety.; -The story
is briefly but entertainingly told in
the San Francisco Argonaut" of -Sept:
24th, in a-series; of .-extracts fromu a
forthcoming biography.-  ;    *'*■**<> y*
Thus saith" the Spokane Miner &nd
Electrician: The partofthe-Kootenay
country, in British Columbia, known
as ,the Slocan, has had hard-luck' of
late. \ First Came the drop in silver,
then the tightness hi*the mone'y market, after that a hard winter and terrible floods in ,the spring," witn all
communication by- water and rail cut
off, and finally.a disastrous forest fire
that all, but* wiped out the towns of
Three Forks and Watson.- ; *The
whole west has been having it
pretty hard, but they have been
having it the -worst'of* all:* With the
determination that is found in every
good mining section,-they arc not dismayed. They are rebuilding 'already and in a year no trace':will be
left of their calamities.- The Nakusp
& Slocan Railway is now in their
midst, their ore is showing in great
quantity with development and new
discoveries are being constantly
made. Now that this section has
rail transportation the indomitable
pluck ofthe people will bring it out
in flying colore.
For the first time in six years Canada has to report a deficit in her fiscal
returns, the expenditures up to June'
30, 1894, approximating $1,156,620
over the; total receipts. 7 This is dk
rectly attribuuable; to the universal
depression in business the world over.
Still the ugly fact that a deficit1 has
occurred remains. When it is also
considered that great reductions were
made in the tariff last session, there
seems nothing for it "but "another
shortage for the current year. The
disbursements oh capital accttunVsiicli
as the. national "debt, public works,
provincial subsidies, and such," must
be kept up, and the loud-mouthed
disciples of free trade, so suddenly
merged into existence through the
visit ot Hon. Mr. Laurier and party,
have failed to present a tangible
scheme whereby the loss of custdmn
dues would be balanced were their
tbebries adopted. Free trade sounds
nice and doubtless wuild. be acceptable to many,. bdt'Cfc. ada is hardly in
shape "just now to grant it. Moreover,
she has prospered very well under
the protection flag. Yet wholesale
economies must be the order on the
Government slate until brighter days
cast a rosier tint on the business horizon. '      " •     ,  .,    u  . -      ' •*. 7

rendered the more necessary by the
present low price of silver; but notwithstanding this discouraging feature and the existing commercial depression, the amount of discovery and

When blocks of solid gold are placed

inexcusable. The full. richness and

.Morning Herald, j&, ready, to admit
■'that the Coolgardie finds put to the

of gold producing Australia. At
Londonderry specimens were recently

gold; and a tub of tailings had yielded by "dollying"—a decidedly primitive process—4,230 ounces, the mine
