A Copper Mt.
Proposition
Mr. R. A. Brown ofthe Sunset Comes
Forward with a Proposition that
Will Call Forth the Attention of|
Investing Public.
The widespread interest nc
taken in the mineral and other
of the Similkameen district is largely
due to the fame of the Sunset mine, on
Copper mountain, regarded by experts as
containing the greatest copper deposit in
existence. This property was located in
1888 by Mr. R. A. Brown, of Grand
Forks. Mr. Brown, who is regarded as
the most adventurous and representative
pioneer in Southern British Columbia,
has just added to his reputation by another noteworthy achievement. Realizing the advantage'of bringing all; the'
claims on Copper mountain under one
control, he .visited the Similkameen last
i week and succeeded in securing control
of a great many of them from their respective owners. At the time he was in
Princeton it was impossible for him to
make public his future plans,  but since
The plan includes the extension of the
tunnel through the mineral zone, which
Mr. Brown estimates to be over 4000 feet
long. A system of double track electric
roads to the summit is also contemplated.
Mr. Brown is prepared to show"the group
to capitalists and their experts on and
after May 15 for a limited period, with a
view to inducing them to become interested with him in one of the greatest
mining projects of the age.
The Sunset has been considerably developed.   The shaft. (8x12 feet)  has at-
ed a depth of 190 feet,  penetrating

general manager, who enjoys the d
tinction of planting the' first stake <

kameen river, three miles from Copper
mountain, as well as 640 acres across the
river^ as smelter sites,, including a two-
mile water front. The future metropolis
will be known as Copper City. It is
beautifully situated on a slightly doping
hillside. The idea of Mr. Brown is to
develop water power for power and other
• purpose.' by damming the river in a narrow canyon about a quarter of a mile
above the proposed tunnel tapping the
mountain at depth. The stream at this
.■poinb.n*4rrows to 75 feet, and with a 20-
foot dam would generate an enormous
power. Coal is abundant in the vicinity,
thus solving the smelter question.
The. claims bonded and secured by Mr.
Brown number about 20, embracing about
tooo acres, of which fpemi 600 to 700, so
Mr. Brown avers, represent solid ore.
His plan is to drive a double track tunr
nel from the river into Copper mountain
for 1800 feet below tapping ore on the
Princess May at a depth of 1700 feet.
Then an upraise will be made to the surface and the ore will be shot down into
the cars. Mining and - transportation is
not expected to exceed 50 cents per ton.

found by Dr. Deeks, of McGill university, there continues to be, with very
slight variations, an increase in values
with depth.
Crosscuts at the 100-feet (both ways)
and 150 feet levels, levels (one way), have
been run 40 and 80 feet respectively
through ore, with neither wall reached.
The mine is equipped with a 15-horse
power steam hoist, available for a depth
of 300 feet. A conservative estimate of
the smelting ore on the dump, places the
amount at 5000 tons,

Boundary Creek district that can show

wide, and from samples I have taken I
should say there is not a pound of ore of

in Princeton the first ofthe week, stated
to a Star representative that it was their

100-foot tunnel in the porphyry dyke between Princeton and Granite Creek. Mr.
Rogers, the manager, had recently returned from his home in California,

Many other property owners and prospectors are arriving daily and they all return with renewed faith in the future of
the Similkameen and Princeton. They
all realize that it is only a matter of waiting for a railroad as extensive development is impossible without proper transportation facilities.

A   COPPER  MT. PROPOSITION.
(Continned from page 1.)
TheYbtiowiiig special report was prepared Dy Mr. W. M. Brewer, traveling
correspondent of the Engineering and
Mining Journal of New York, Oct. 20th,
1900:
"Copper mountain has been the most
thoroughly prospected section of the district, and is located about 12 miles south
from Princeton. The Similkameen river
flows around the western base of the
mountain, and separates it from Kennedy
mountain. On the eastern side flows Wolf
creek, a tributary of the Similkameen.
During the past two years this mountain
has been very thoroughly prospected,
with the result that for a distance of about
three miles along its summit mineral
claims have been staked, and in fact the
entire area from the Similkameen river
on one side to and across Wolf creek on
the other side has been located as mineral
claims. The geological conditions of
Copper mountain indicate thatjt is composed of an enormous dyke/of igneous
rock, apparently diorite, yraich has its
trend northwesterly! A felsite dyke, 60
feet wide, locally termed porphyry, running through the centre of the mineral
zone for three miles in length proves
depth. The development work of the
Sunset mine has been of more extent)
than on any other claim. It consists of
100 feet of incline shaft sunk at 37 angles
toward the east, and 80 fret of crosscut
from the 100-foot level, all in solid ore.
The conditions exposed by this work
show no walls. The entire mass of diorite
is   mineralized with bornite and   chol-

The report of Dr. Deeks on the Sunset
is stated by all who knew the property to
be a most conservative one. A gentle-
man who had an option on the Sunset at
one time, and who spent a great deal of
time in prospecting it, declares that
wherever he found rock cropping through
the soil and broke into it he invariably
got a showing of copper. He sent a 60-
pound sample of the better class of ore to
the Orient Chemical Works at Trenton,
New Jersey, and the assay returns were
57 per cent, copper aud $8.20 in gold,
analyst stated that the ore could be
most cheaply treated by electrolysis at a
cost of $1.60 to $2 per ton. The ore is
one also that will  smelt at a very cheap
The dump at the 190-foot shaft was
sampled this year by a mining engineer,
and gave an average of 7 per cent, copper, and this is notwithstanding that
several tons of the choicest ore had been
previously culled out for sampling purposes by visitors and prospectors. When
the latter were shy of good specimens on
their neighboring locations this dump
has always been drawn upon. The values
in the shaft sunk have shown a steady
increase in value as depth was gained,
and by culling out the cleaner ore, which
would not exceed one-third, an average
of 10 per cent, copper can be got. Taking Dr. Deeks' dimensions of deposit,
750 feet in width, with 1500 feet in length,
and taking the 190 feet depth attained,
will give 213,750,000 cubic feet, and taking 10 cubic feet to the ton, will give 21,-
375,000 tons. Discarding one-third of
this as waste, will leave 2,125,000 tons,
which should average five per cent, copper, and copper will net $2 a per cent, in
the ore, that is, $10 a ton net; that would
make I71.250.000 worth of gold net in
sight, (The net value of copper per ton
means the value of the ore as it lies on
the dump.)
With reasonable railway facilities, the
cost of mining, freight and reduction of
ore should not exceed $5.

Monday he was again accosted in regard
to the matter and in an angry mood proceeded to dictate orders for the future
conduct of the hotels in the Similkameen
to the effect that hereafter this
a Carrie Nation town on Sunday, and for
the future all gambling would be prohibited. In the excitement he overlooked the fact that closing the bars on Sun
day would have little effect on drunkenness during the remainder of the week.
Th
differc
t hotel proprietors in town
when apprised of this fact admitted his
right to do so but say that if he proposes
, carrying out the Sunday law it must be
inforced in regard to all other business.
The claim is made that this act on the
part of Mr.  Hunter is   pointed at the
. wrong parties and it is just as impossible
for them to keep order on Sunday as
on any other day. They claim the law
is not strictly enforced in other mining
camps and just as much order is maintained. The fact that Princeton is growing   and   many   a genii hobo has his
- eyes turned this way should call for a res
t ident police who could give his full at-

the people of Princeton consider that Mr.
Hunter is not in a position to judge as tc
the merits of the case as he is hardly ever
in town on Sundays or after government
office hours during the week.
On the other hand Mr. Hunter claims
he had warned the hotels that it was necessary for them to keep order on Sundays
or the laws would be vigorously enforced.
This in his estimation they had failed to
do, consequently the drastric   measi
The position of constable in this part
ofthe country is a peculiar one, i
much, as besides the duties of that

on the offices of mining recorder, government agent, tax collector, etc. Of
course it can plainly be seen that this is
too much for one man to do properly and
a great share of the responsibility should
fall on the government in combining so
many offices in one. There is no doubt
that the greatest attention is given to the
matter of tax-collecting, but when it
comes to giving some service in return for
all this expenditure we must say there is
a most apparent lack of enthusiasm.
