but for speed later in rock, this would
mctnttltl two complete plants, one
for each variety of drill.
Even when bedrock  is reached, casing   discontinued,   the    diamond bit
screwed on with  a core barrel,   and a
core lifter  fixed  to bring  up the perfect core,   other  innumerable troubles
are experienced, and  the result looked
fnr, namely,   a complete core of coal,
uncontaminated by overlaying rock, to
permit ��� true analysis of the coal as it
exists in the seam, is unobtainable,
and wastage invariably happens.   In
the soft rocks, owing  to the rotating
core barrel,   the pressure of water,
owing to depth, standing in the hole,
the activity of the pump forcing water
down the boring rods to clear the diamond bit and bring the  sludge to surface outside the   rods,   these latter
crumbled the core,   washing away all
the soft particles and preventing a true
sample  for analysis.   On coal particles beginning to appear in the sludge,
which     happens      some      minutes
-according   to    depth,    after   the
bit      has        struck       the      coal
seam, since the wash water takes time
to  return to the  surface  against  the
down pressure, the rods are drawn up,
the core barrel cleaned, the hole washed
out with the pump, the rods that were
down carefully  measured,  and every
precaution taken to secure an exact result.    However,    the   core   mostly
crumbles as noted above, and not being
complete will not give a true analysis.
The  sludge,  therefore, is run into a
clean tub as it comes up, and an analysis taken from this.   As on the surface
the fact that the coal seam has been
run through is not apparent for some
minutes until the wash water shows it,
the sludge is vitiated for determination
of ash-the great essential.   An examination under the microscope of the
sludge, also shows that there are white
particles of   lime   conglomerate and
sandstone present from  higher strata,
jarred down by the rotating  bending
rods, facts also falsifying  an ash test.
Then, again, when the rods are lowered
in deeper  strata,   bits of  coal broken
loose from the upper seams by jarring,
fall down ahead of  the rods, and show
coal particles in the sludge till they are
ground up by  the bit,   and part taken
into the core barrel.    The question is
how to get a complete  core of the coal
���loams  pierced   that   will   exhibit   the
true state of affairs, and whether even
a high ash result at one place in some
coal seams should be taken an condemn-
natory of the whole seam when formed
by driftwood dependent on water currents?    Special  bits set  with equal
size, and. therefore,  equal cutting diamonds, selected  and  carefully  placed
with as little copper foil  as possible in
cavities partly drilled, partly cut. in the
malleable iron crown bit, have been reserved to bore the coal seams, so as to
make a better core, but they are only
partly  successful.    The  machine has
been run slow and only sufficient water
poured  down to clear  the bit, but not
with complete success, the pressure of
water being still too excessive for the
coal to hold together.   There  is a so
called stationary core barrel worked
under ball bearings at the top, instead
of the plug connecting barrel and rod.
This kind was not tried in this instance,

has been discarded as not overcoming
the difficulty. In boring in soft rock
justice cannot be done to the coal or
mineral sought till these adverse results have been overcome.
Another difficulty is to ascertain the
direction of the dips of the strata in
each hole. On the core the number of
degrei s from the horizontal or vertical,
of course, is determined by a clinometer, but the direction, even by comparison of several holes is not possible

the corresponding layers of coal am
shale in the same seam also vary, as
they would in a driftwood composition
dependent upon their existing currents.
The rods when hoisted or lowered by a
screwed in plug attached to a swivel
hook, rotate and cannot be made to go
in a stationary vertical line to locate
the line of the core barrel, and so,
though a plumb line is used on the rods
and the joints marked by a file to keep
one line throughout their entire length,
a base line taken and a true connection
with the bottom of the hole sought to
be established, the resnlt is uncertain.
A report of an apparatus to photograph the bottom of the hole has been
heard of, but without guides down the
hole, or a crosshead to overcome rotation, it is uncertain whether the results are more accurate than those
already obtained. These recounted
troubles are probably common to most
drillers, and if they have been overcome, accounts of how-generally accessible to the profession-seem hard
to get.
It is regrettable that a continuous
bore hole completely piercing the whole
sedimentary rocks carrying the coal
measures and overlaying the volcanic
rocks, has not yet been put down in the
Nicola Valley, as several coal seams
exposed-15. 5 aud 4 1-2 feet through-
are good, being low in ash, sulphur and
moisture, and affording around 70 per
cent, of firm coke. There is a splendid market for a large tonnage of, say,
500,000 tons at present per annum, to
be worked up even to a greater amount by supplying large American
towns outside of Canada, lying nearest
these extensive coal fields.
