History of This Camp and How It Was
Discovered Reads Like a Fairy
Tale.  Review of the Work
on Various Claims.
The Aspen Grove Copper Casap is situated in the Similkameen mining division
of Yale district of B. C, ��t the summit
of a range ��f mountains, part of which
forms the Cascade range, and is located
on the divide between the watersheds nt
the Similkameen river t�� the south, and
the   Fraser  and   Nicola  valleys  to the
The history of this camp and how it
was discovered reads like a fairy tab).
C. H. Schmidt, a North Diko'a farmer,
came out to Aspen Grove in the summer
of 1890 with a rough sketch of pun of
the topography of the camp, win. li In
said was given him by an old prospector
who died at his ranch in North D.kota,
and told him of extensive copper out
croiipings which were uulocsted H"
stayed several weeks at A. B. Roberts'
ranch, and finally, after much search,
discovered outcmppings of rich chalcocite,
which is now known as the 'Big Sioux"
mineral claim. He also looated ib
"Giant" and many other claims, and on
doing surface work uncovered ton de
posits of rich cupriferons ores; proipoo
tors began to flock in from all points i.
1900 and 1901, and have stayed wnh kW
camp ever since. The more development
work done the better ore the cuppriferous
deposits defined.
The geological formation of this di ���
trict is probably the same agtasthe
Cache creek series, ascribed by Dr. Da��-
son to the California furmation. The
fnrmat'rins represented in the ramp snc
sists of four distinct classes of rock,
though the sub divisions are numerous.
Tiese principal group*  are the tr��ps,
amygdaloids,   conglomerates   and   lime
stones.   The oldest  recognized  rooks in
this district are the sedimentary and crys
���   t illiuu rocks.   Beds of volcanic rocks are

e  rocks already referred to.   This series is

Common in H. mineralized portions of
the district, though wanting in the iinmin
eralized. While the mountains are not
at all rugged, and the western and southern slopes are open and covered with
bunch grass, prospecting has not heen
easy, on aocouot of the covering of drift
which conceals the rocks over a considerable portion of the surface, and on account of the oomp'nx geolo^i.V structure
of the district.
I have sampled the lajmn drove camp
many times, but as no great depth has
yet been attained, it is practically impossible to ascertain the value and extent of
these cupriferous outcroppings from surface sampling.
The Portland mine, which is centrally
located in this eamp, has the most development  work  done, and is owned by a
part of which is dolmite. To thesoub
of the Portland gr mp are many important
properties, on both Dodd mountain ami
Rear mountain. Among olhen is the
"Queen   of   Hearts" group, which t* |m

Now that the railway for the Nicols
district ha* about become a "sure thing,"
a great many people will turn their attention to this rich section "f British Col
umbia and speculating m the possible de
velopiuent ill the future of the country
between Spences Bridge and Osoyoos,
the route to be eventually covered by the
proposed new mad.
That the whole country and more es
pecially that part nt it known as the
Nicola district, is rich, goes without say
ing. Everybody at the coast cities hsi-
seen exhibits of fruit and minerals from
this region and a great many Vancouver
mining and business men are already in
terested In fact there are few of a spec
ulative turn of mind who have not taker
a flying trip into the Nicola and Similka
meen on the chance that transportation,
when it finally came, would make their
inves'ments remunerative.
p may be said that, now that transpor
tation seems assured, the greatest wonder
of all is that such a beautiful and remark
ably rich country could lie dormant *n
long for no other reason than the need ol
a railway. Yet such is the case. With
resources of timher, mineral and pastor*
lands, the best that the sun ever shone
on, and all with'n 200 miles of Vancouver
and less than 200 miles from the Boundary camps, the Nicoh and Similkameen
Country has lain waiting all these year*
for the march of progress and the thundei
of the iron horse. Railroads galore hav.
been projected to open it up and ever)
promoter who has ever become acquainted
with its riches has become infatuated:
but lor one cause or another nothing ha-
been done.
Now comes the C. P. R. from the
Spences Bridge end, and the V. V. & E
continued through the Similkameen with
out a doub', both roads having already
got past the paper stage.
During this year the C. P. R. will in
all probability only ouild a distance of 45
miles, but it is the starter of a through
line to Midway. With the completion n(
the first section it will open up the Nicola
to such an extent thai, within a very
few years the Nicola will be the leader Of
the producing districts in the province.

Probably the copper was deposited by
precipitation in the cavities and strata
from the waters ol ancient sea abov., the

were presumably powerfully impregnated
with salts and the holes left by the d'sso

The great advantage that this camp haB
over  other cupriferous   camps  in  th a

Grove, sb one of the most important feat
