The importance of the strike to the

that after passing through the higher

large quantities of disappointingly low
grade ore were encountered and confidence in the property was shaken. The

lifficulties, but recently
litalwas provided by the
; shareholders, who consented to a reconstruction scheme upon an assessable basis. The main shaft is down 500 feet and
drifts on the different levels to the extent
of 4,000 feet, have shown a large quantity
of ore. Since the first of the year the
shaft has been sunk 120 feet with the
happy result of proving the ore at that
depth to be of a higher grade than at
either of the upper levels. Stations have
been made at three levels, and all is in
readiness to supply the mill with ore, as
soon as the erection of the large rock
breaker is completed. It was necessary
in order to get the foundation for the
rock breaker to take away the dump
. which occupied the firound required,
and for the past few weeks the stamp
mill has been running on the dump with
highly satisfactory results. At the first
of the year all the work of construction
was completed and it is reasonable to
suppose that the work of extraction and
development will go on indefinitely, as
the quantity of ore in sight is very considerable. In this case, being a comparatively low grade proposition, the princi-
pal-.question is of cheap extraction and
treatment ofthe ore. Over i.ooo'ions of |
dump ore has been treated at the mill,
which has proved that the ore is of such
a friable nature that over the average can
be handled by the stamps. It has also
proved that the mill is perfectly adapted
for the work.
In addition to the extraction of ore f<
the mill, the corporation will, continr
the work of development, and shortly
shaft is to be sunk vertically on
mill or bin, after passing throngh the
crusher, which will be placed at the head
of the shaft. This plan is being followed
upon the advice ofthe Provincial mineralogist, Mr. Robertson, and it is expected will reduce the cost of extraction to a
very low point. The corporation owns
several other promising properties, but
110 work is being done on them at present, with the'exception of the coal measures, situated 10 miles from Fairview,
which are being worked in a small way

Mr. Aldridge says that all of the
metal markets have l*een most unsatisfactory to the mines, smelters
and refineries. The fall in lead and
silver has affected the receipts of |
some of the Kootenay lead-silv
mines to the extent of $600,000 a
nually, comparing the quotations
for these metals in January last
with those at the present time.
,The smelters have also.lost heavily
in buying and selling on a falling
market, it requiring an average
of from four to five months for the
smelters to realize upon metals purchased from the time the ore has
been brought trom the mines.
The decline in metal prices since
the beginning of the year has been
approximately, as follows : Copper
from ^^x^ cents to \2% cents per
pound; London lead from ^18
sterling to .£10 sterling, and silver
from 62 cents to 54 cents per ounce.
MICHIGAN MINES.
Mines and Mineral Statistics of |
the State of Michigan, just published, gives the production of refined
copper of Michigan mines in the
year 1900 as 142,576,313 pounds
During the preceeding three years
the production was as follows :—
146,950,338 pounds in 1899, 147,-
965,739 pounds in 1898, and 142,-
702,586 pounds in 1897. These
figures show that the copper production of Michigan mins was
smaller last year than   during any
