D. W. ROWLANDS, Editor
A. E. LUDWIG, Manaoeb
Extracts from the report
of W. Fleet Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist, for 1910
The Countless mineral elm
adjoins the property of the
Ben d'Or or Coronation Company, higher up the hillside
away from the creek, and
has suffered from lack of
water-power, although unlimited water might have
been brought in by a ditch-
line from the main creek.
The property was reported
as being owned by William
Manson et al, of Lillooet,
and has not been worked for
some years.
The only workings that
could be found on the property was an open pit some
60 feet long by 20 feet deep,
on a quartz vein about four
feet wide, as exposed. The
strike of this vein, S 65* E.,
was different from any other
vein worked in the camp,
and the dip was nearly vertical. The quartz from this
opening was treated in a
crude arrastra, and is said to
have carried a fair amount
of gold.
The old arrastra was a tub
9 feet in diameter, in the
centre of which was a vertical shaft driven by a horizontal water wheel attatched
to it by a radial arms; to
the outer rim or edge of the
water-wheel were affixed
buckets into which impinged
a stream of water from a
nozzle, under a small head.
The reason given for the
non-working of the property
was an insufficiency of water.
The Pioneer mine, consisting of one Crown-granted
mineral claim, is situated
about half a mile up the ck.
from the Ben d'Or, and almost at the creek-level At
this point the creek valley
has become narrower, and
being farther up-stream, the
creek level is much higher,
so that, although the quartz
veins are about the same
elevation as those previously
mentioned, they here outcrop
only slightly above water-
level in the creek. The
country-rock here is the same
as noted in the other claims,
and the quartz veins are fou
nd to be very regular, and
with a constant strike of
nearly east and west. Two
distinct veins have been opened up, and surface development would seem to indicate others.
The development of the
property is not great, but
the conditions under which
it is being worked are peculiar and worthy of special
note. It is a " one - man
mine," being owned and operated entirely by one man,
F. H. Kinder, who is not a
miner by trade, but who,
single-handed, has successfully mined and milled enough ore each year to make
a comfortable living.
The main No. 1 tunnel was
started some four feet above
high water in the creek, and
has been driven in for 100
feet as a crosscut tunnel,
cutting at 70 feet in from
the portal No 1 ledge, a
quartz vein averaging about
18 inches in width, on which
drifting has been done to
the west for 30 feet and to
east for 10 feet. At 100 ft.
in the tunnel cuts the No 2
ledge, a quartz vein from 24
to 30 inches wide, and on
this a drift has been made
to the left (west) for 20 feet,
from which a raise is up 16
feet; a similar drift has been
made to the east for 55 feet.
There are other small tunnels and openings on the property, which, while not extensive, prove the quartz
veins to be more than ordinarily regular and persistent,
and to carry some good gold
For reasons which will be
understood when the methods and conditions of working the property are considered, ore carrying less than
from $20 to $25 could not be
worked, and, consequently,
the workings have had to
follow the richer ore-shoots.
The owner has apparently
done all the development and
mining single - handed and
alone; the ore has been mined,
filled into sacks, and, when
necessary, hoisted by hand
and carried, either in a wheel
barrow or by the owner on
his back, to a home-made arrastra—described later—capable of treating from 400 to
500 lbs of ore a day. If wages can be made, and apparently they are, by such primitive methods and the total
absence of capital, it speaks
well for the gold-tenue of
the quartz mined.
The arrastra is 8 feet in
diameter inside; the vertical
shaft supporting the arms is
driven by a belt connected to
the horizontal shaft of an
undershot current water-
wheel placed in the creek.
The property has considerable merit, as a small mine,
the present output as it is
being run would not exceed
$600 during the season.
From the Cadwallader ck.
camp the creek valley was
followed up for about ten
miles over a rough, and little used, trail, following the
creek and on an easy gradient, where camp was made
for the night, near creek-
level, at an altitude of 4,100
feet. The next morning,
September 11th, the summit
was crossed, the ground being covered with snow.
The trail out of the Cadwallader creek valley zigzags up a steep, burned-over
ridge, rising in about three
miles in a direct line to an
elevation of 6,800 feet, Tbe
summit is devoid of trees or
scrub, and in summer is
grass-clad, providing exce'-
lent grazing. Several quartz
ledges have been staked on
the summit, but the recent
snow had covered up all traces of work and the showings could not be found. Proceeding southward from the
summit, a decent was gradually made into the valley at
the headwaters of McGillvary creek. The upper portion of the valley is on the
edge of the timber line, and
consists of a series of grass-
covered basins dotted over
with clumps of balsam and
spruce trees, a most beautiful place in summer, but indicating heavy snowfall in
winter wit an open season of
only three or four months in
the year. The trail down
this valley is an old Indian
hunting trail, not inviting for
for travel, and frequently
takes to the sidehills and
timber to avoid the canyons
which characterize the valley
One day's travel brought
the party to the forks of Me
Gillvary creek, about five
miles from its mouth and
from Anderson lake. Here
camp was made on the evening of Septemper 11th, at
elevation of 3,900 feet, good
feed for horses being found
where forest fires had many
years ago removed the timber; this was the only graz-
ing-place seen on the lower
ten miles of the creek.
N.B.—The pioneer mine
has changed hands since the
writing of this report, and
is now being worked on a

A very interesting pen picture ol
Napoleon is drawn by John Cam
Hobhousr. afterward Lord "Broug-i-
ton, in his "Recollections of a Long
Life."   He  writes:
"I had for some time a most complete opportunity of contemplating
this extraordinary b.ing. His me
is of a deadly pale, his jaws overhanging, but not so much as I had
heard. His hair is short, of a dark-
dusky brown. He generally stood with
his hands knit behind him or folded
before hiui and three or four tinus
took snufi out of a plain brown bow
Once he looked at his watch, which
by the way, had a gold face am i
think, a brown hair chain, like an
English one. His teeth seemed re"u-
lar, but not clean. He very seldom
spoke, but when he did smiled in
some sort agreeably. He looked about
him, not knitting but joining his eyebrows. As the front of each regiment
passed he put up the first linser oi
his left hand quickly to his h;;t to
salute, but did not move his head or
hat. He had an air of sedate impatience."
™ A Circular Rainbow.
A member of a party who made an
ascent oi Finsterrehorn some years
ago thus described a novel sight
which delighted the tired climbers:
The day we mounted the Finsterrehorn we wore treated to the rare sight
of a circular rainbow, the phenomenon lasting nearly half an liour and
forming a complete circle. Ther •
were heavy clouds lying some 4.000
feet below on the Aar glacier, and il
was on these that the beautifu1. brilliantly colored ring lay. A second
circle was also visible. We were near
the summit of the peak when the first
of the party observed it, and from
that point the face of the mountain
on the Grimsel side is almost perpendicular, giving us a splendid view.
