Prospects for the future of the mining industry of British Columbia
were never brighter, The Increased
price of metals has attracted wide
attention to the possibilities of the
mines and has stimulated activity,
while the discovery of new processes
for treating ores has aided 'in making
the development of dormant properties profitable. The success of Mr.
R. F. Green's efforts on behalf of the
•-Mac industry, and the consequent offer of a bonus for zinc by the Dom-
on government, promise te. Inaugurate a new era of prosperity for
yinc properties, the benefit of which
will he felt nowhere more than in
the interior Of Uritish Columbia.
From increased activity in the mining industry Revelstoke cannot fail
to derive substantial benefit. Tn the
Biir Bend is a reservoir of mineral
wealth, the extent of which is not
yet defined, and the inevitable development of this vast tributary territory will mean much to the city.
