Array LILLOOET PROSPECTOR
VOL. f, NO. 50
LILLOOET,  B. C, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1916.
$2 PER YEAR
Mining Prospects are Good
Mr. F. J. Tregillus of Barkerville states that quartz mining
possibilities of the Cariboo district are exceedingly encourag
ing and with good railway service highly profitable development could be undertaken. Mr.
Tregillus says in part:
"I wish to say that the discovery of a quartz lead that has a
great future has recently been
made on the mountain between
Grouse creek on the one side and
McCallum Gulch and Williams'
creek on the other. As yet the
most of the work has been done
on the top of the mountain, near
Grouse creek, where two parallel
veins 300 feet apart have been
exposed, each about 20 ft. wide.
No. 1, which gives returns from
$28.80 to $209 in gold i» principally decomposed quartz, with bands
of galena going to 40 to 70ounces
in silver. No. 2 gives better
prospects in free gold, as much
as 50 cents to a pan having been
obtained at a depth of 12 feet.
"These ledges are both blind
and were traced by the discoverer with a pan and then uncover-
They are both brand new ledges.
Extensions have been staked to
Seymour Baker's quartz workings on Prosperine Mountains.
One of the ledges has been pick
ed up and exposed in three places
along the line of strike, one at
2600 feet, where it is 16 feet
wide, at 3000 feet, where it is 22
feet wide, and again at 4800 feet,
where it is over 20 feet wide.
"All these openings have good
pan prospects in free gold and
show. In the last named there
is an abundance of arsenical pyrites which, when roasted, show
gold values. Work is being done
to deepen these openings and get
true assays made.
"Old quartz miners who have
seen these discoveries say that if
they were made 'hundreds of
miles from anywhere' they would
cause a big stampede. Cariboo
quartz has been given a black
eye by a good many superficial
observers and this thing, being
so close to an old mining town,
arouses little interest here, but
its going to make Cariboo famous
again as a gold producer as soon
as the right people get hold of it.
"I am interested in these extensions (four) and am corresponding with some mining
people with a view of getting
the three claims which are owned by the discoverer off his
hands and some solid develop-
Iment work done."
