Importance of Correct Samples of Ore Bodies
F. E. Crossland, M.I.M.E.
Many people are undoubtedly
influencfd to invest in mining
prepositions by the rich specimens that are brorght out to the
cities and produced for their inspection. Specimen rock of this
kind is no criterion of the average grade of ore upon which the
success of the mine depends.
It is most important that this
sampling of an ore body should
be intelligently understood and
practiced. Every engineer and
others connected with the practical part of mining feels that there
is room for improvement in this
matter, and distribution of a little knowledge along the sampling
line may not come amiss.
An average sample of the commercial values of a mine is very
difficult to obtain, and involves
much care and labor by cutting
across the lode at frequent intervals. In this it differs from a
specimen, which while indicating
the nature of a mineral deposit
from a metallurgical point of view
does not give an idea of its average commercial value.
As ore bodies vary in their
physical behavour and make up,
no set rules can be laid down; as
what would apply to one case
could not be used with any degree of correctness in another.
It is all important at the outset
to determine at what intervals
along the course of the strike the
samples jihpuld be taken,
In the case of a deposit of uniform width and continuity and
evenly distributed values such as
is often found in the regular sulphide ores, an interval of ten feet.
will generally suffice: if irregular
in width, with lenses, and pockets of strictly high grade values,
lesser intervals would he advisable. In this latter case extreme
care is necessary in sampling at
close intervals, in order to obtain
accuracy in arriving at an average value of the whole of the lode
or deposit, as the case might be.
A plan of the ore body showing
its variations is of great assistance, corresponding marks being
made thereon to show at which
point samples have been taken
and to check at the regular points
at which the sampling is to be
performed, which, should be accurately measured and marked
out by driving pegs at the different intervals decided upon.
Having obtained ali the data
concerning the physical aspect of
the mineralisation, checking by
jissay will reveal the \alue of
deposit.
The miner's pick, though often
the means employed to take a
sample, is not held as effective as
a moil. The pick will often insensibly hit the softer portions of
the ore, which would not yield a
true sample. Another bad habit
is to knock off piojecting pieces
of ore which is likewise unreliable
By using a moil and an ordinary
four-pound hammer a groove of
uniform width can be cut across
the ore and the whole carefully
chiseled out, sacked and scaled.
The size of the sample is also a
question that needs to be decided,
as in some places it is of course
difficult to handle bulk of samples
on account of transportation, but
the correct idea to have in view is
to cut a groove the minium size of
which will give a reliable and
average sampling of the wkole.

Vancouver Jan. 7.
Petrograd, Jan. 6. — The Russians haye destroyed something
like 50,000 men trapped in terrible passes of Caucausasia range
where under German commanders they contest soverignty of
Russia on Russian soil. The
Turkish army corps have been
slaughtered and all that remains
of them are a. few hundred prisoners,
The best army corp of the
Turkish army is the ninth formerly stationed at Erzerum, led
the invasion, supported by another army corp drawn apparently from Yuan, neither now exist.
Copenhagen, Jan. 6. — Special
dispatch to National Tidende
from Constantinople says former
German cruiser Goeben which
flies the Turkish flag, struck two
Russian mines in the neighborhood of Bosphoius and was seriously damaged. She has two
big holes on her water line and it
will take two or three months to
repair her. The fact has been
kept secret from the people of
Constantinople.
Constantinople Jan. 6—Official
communication: — Two Turkish
cruisers weie in a battle yesterday in the Black Sea, against
Russian fleet of seventeen units.
Despite Russian numerical superiority our ships were not destroyed.
London ,T:m. 6— Correspondent
of Daily Mail in France reports
Zeppelins skirted French coast
near Gravel ines twelve southwest
of Dunkirk Wednesday morning
and then turned westward towards England and is rumored
two other zoppelins proceeded,
there after. The whole day
Dunkirk was menaced by raids,
but owing to vigorous fire of the
town guns, few bombs fell. At
one moment six aeroplanes were
hovering over town but were
forced to retreat, apparently no
damage was done,
London—Dispatch from Venice
reports that French submarine
boat, has torpedoed the Austrian
dreadnought Viribus Unites at
Pola,. It is said the hull of the
dreadnought was pierced but that
she succeeded in reaching here.
The dreadnought is of 20,000 tons
displacements, and has a complement of one thousand men.
She is one of the four ships constituting the largest type in the
Austrian navy.
Paris—A Cettinje despatch to
the Ha vas Agency says that the
Austrians on December 28 delivered a series of energetic attacks
against the Montenegrin troops
in the region of Grahovo, maintaining a violent artillery fire,
principally towards Klobouzi.
After fierce fighting, which lasted all day, the Austrians were
repulsed with heavy losses.

Lillooet, January 8.
Rome -Italy has fixed the time
limit in which Turkey must apologise formally for the Hodecida
incident and salute the Italian
flag or suffer the consequences.
Italian Government will not be
satisfied unless reparations include release of British Consul
who was seized in Italian Consulate, punishment of violrtors of
Consulate, and military salute of
Italian flag. Turkey has until
January 10th to reply. After
that date Italian-Turkish relations will be of utmost delicacy.
Athens—Greek cruiser Helle

the purpose of protecting Greeks
there in case insurgents should
capture the town.
Paris—Official communication.
"Reports received this evening
of violent German attacks in the

eight years residence in the B.C.
Penitentiary ; he will take up his
abode with his family.
Mr. Reginald Gibbs from Vancouver Island is visiting his
father and mother to spend the
New Year with them. He sees
great improvements in our town
since his last visit some eight
years ago.
One of these unaccountable escapes from death occured yesterday, when a horse being driven
by Tyee Jimmy ran away. The
horse was hitched to a buggy,
and when about a quarter of a
mile from Lillooet town the horse
bolted. United efforts failed to
hold the horse in check, they
turned two corners of about forty
five degree at a gallop, the rig
was turned over and the occpants
thrown out onto the frozen road.
Nobody was hurt, the only damage being a broken buggy and a
scared horse. The Tyee clung to
the lines to the end, thus preventing further damnge.

Mr. and Mrs. Frank Durban,
storekeepers at the Portage, left
this week for their home, after
spending a joyful Xmas and New
year with their parents.
Now that the Xmas and New
Year festivities have come and
gone, the localites may be seen
hard at it, as only they know
how.

wishes to thank the people for
their kind hospitality during her
visit.
Information comes to hand that

Eldorado Creek and Taylor
Basin
Wild West.-This claim is
located on Taylor creek, a-
bout 3,000 feet distant in an
easterly direction from the
open-cut on the Dolly claim,
and at about 800 feet lower
elevation. Here I found that
a wide open-cut, 8-feet deep
at the face, had been made
in the creek-bank, just above
high water, under a gossan
outcrop exposing a body of
sulphide ore, in quartzose-
spar gungue, fully 20 feet
wide. This body has its line
of strike north-east, and occurs between diorite on the
north-west side and crystalline limestone on the southeast side.
Of several assays that had
been made from this material, Mr. Taylor told me an
average of $4 was the best.
If the extent along the line
of strike and at depth is persistent, neither of which have
been yet proven, this property should be an attractive
proposition, especially when
it is considered that it is admirably adapted for concentration, with its location on
a stream that will furni: h a
practically unlimited water-
power and an ample supply
for concentrating, also that
the supply of balsam and
spruce timber on the creek-
bottom is very plentiful.
No other claims have been
staked on Taylor creek, nor
in the basin, nor were there
any prospectors other than
Mr. Taylor in the vicinity at
the time of my visit.
Eldorado Cresk
This creek is west from
Taylor basin and separated
from ii by a mountain-range,
with the ridge about 7,000
feet elevation, although several of its peaks are higher.
The trail has not been made
over this ridge, as it always
covered with more or less
snow, but runs westerly for
about a mile, then turns
northerly and crosses a pass
at nearly 6,000 feet elevation, decending by a well-
graded trail to the head of
Eidorado creek.
The creek flows towards
the north for a couple of
miles, then turns to the west
and empties into a tributary

of Gun creek. The valley at
the head of the creek is about
the sume elevation as Taylor
basin, but the fall is much
less than thai in Taylor erk.,
so that the growth of timber
is very considerably less than
on the creek-bottom cf Taylor creek, which is about 800
feet lower elevation than the
head - waters of Eldorado
creek.
Grant White and George
Bell are the pioneer prospectors of Eldorado creek, haying staked claims there in
1909, since which time a few
other claims have been located by William Haylmore and
others, but the only work
that has been done is on
White and Bell's property.
At the time of my visit there
was not a prospector on tbe
creek except J. Lindsay, who
accompanied me, and who
represents the Eldorado Placer Mining Company of Vancouver, B.C., of which R. E.
Gosnell is president, which
company owns two miles of
hydraulic leases on Eldorado
creek.
Such placer gold as is
found in Eldorado creek had
its source from the erosion
that has taken place in the
surrounding mountains,
which undoubtedly has been
enormous, but apparently
the formation that carried
gold has been only a small
proportion of the whole, and
so far as I could judge, only
from the mountain that separates Eldorado creek from
Taylor basin.

STEPHEN & J. RETASKET. THE PROSPECTOR
Importance of Correct Ore Samples
from page one
There it much more to be
desired as representative of
what is occuring on a particular mining property than
gouging out the rich streaks
and exhibiting them as illustrating the value of the mine.
Though not alone, in this
particular, the prospector is
the chief offender. The
writer is frequently visited
by prospectors who exhibit
samples of ore taken from
some new discovery, and on
being questioned as to the
size of the vein or deposit it
is generally said to be of such
width and extent, that should
the samples be true in their
relation to the ore body they
would expose a bonanza.
This does not apply to the
large, old - fashioned mine
operators and the competent
engineers who regulate their
estimates with arithmetical
precision, but particularly to
that body of small mine operators and prospectors who
do not realize the importance
of correct sampling as being
the preliminary to an immediate consideration of future
work involving the expenditure of capital and upon the
exactitude of the sampled
values of which depends very
largely the success or failure
of the enterprize. It is men
like this, who, though their
intentions may be good e-
nough, through ignorance of
the proper system, expose
themselves and their associates to error, loss of money,
and  consequent disappoint
ment.
The writer was recently
commissioned by one of the
Trust Companies to investigate a certain copper property some 400 miles from Vancouver, the width of the deposit was said by the owners
to be at least 40 feet and the
sample presented was declared with vehement posi-
tiveness, to be represc ntative
of the whole of the material
lode. They ranged from 3
to 8 per cent in copper with
varing values in gold and silver. To shorten the story,
after a hard trip at the expense of gasoline launches
etc., I found that instead of
40 feet, 4 inches would have
been nearer the truth as far
as pay ore was concerned,
and this could not be mined
at a profit. It is such cases
that are discouraging to the
investor and all concerned,
and it is with the idea of illustrating to the prospector
and others that this paper is
written, if the property owner would only realize the importance of not over estimating his values or at least keep
somewhere near the mark,
it would be better for all
concerned. Have in mind
that it is the average that
counts and it would be much
in the prospector—owner's
favor should the financial interests or their representative engineers find on examination that a not too optimistic mineral content had been
represented. I have yet to
make  an examination  and

on the subject, having been
on the most intimate terms
with the miners of several
continents—I know him to
be a man of exceptional probity, and it is but justice to
recognize this virtue.
The miner, it is true, is
confessedly too optimistic,
but these very qualities are
indispensable to his vocation.
This tribute applies particularly to the courageous, indefatigable prospector. When
ever I have met him I have
found him a man of hope, of
courage and of generous im-
pnlse.
The prospector is above all
others the pioneer of civilization, antedating the missionary and' the railroad surveyor, and it is his discoveries that have given life blood
to modern industry.

Water Notice
For a Licence to take and use Water
find my sampling reach the
high water mark that had
been previously given out by
the owners, of course I presume it is only human nature
this inclination to pick the
best, but it is to be deplored
as not conducive to the advancement of legitimate mining that it is so often too
much overdone.
Now, I would not like
these remarks to be taken
with disfavor by those they
are intended to apply to, from
my association with the
miner— and I claim to be
able to speak authoritatively
NOTICE is hereby given that the
PACIFIC GREAT EASTERN RAILWAY COMPANY of Victoria, B.C.
will apply for a licence to take and use

about 165 feet from the centreline of
the P.G.E. Railway and will be used
for Railway purposes on the land described as the Right of way of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, about 4400
feet north along the said Railway from
the North boundary of Lot 1120, Lillooet District.
This notice was posted on the ground
on the 20th day of November, 1914.
The application will be filed in the
