Gold and Platinum Associated in Deposits on Bars—Miners Threw
It Awav.
Report by Charles Camsell on the plati
nutu deposits  ot the Tulameen river and
which   was read   recently  at the annual
meeting of the  Canadian Mining  Institute at Toronto,^.
-..'-.The tributaries of the Tulameen river
worthy of important consideration in
connection with the mining of platinum
are Granite Creek, and its branches.

Mining Chief Industry.
British Columbia, whose resources were
at first thought to be of little value, except to fur traders, became a mineral pro
ducing country after the discovery of
placer gold' on the Fraser river in 1858
The large  influx  of miners  in this and
decline in output ; t*ut it is hoped that
this mawsoon again give place to activity
Unfit onlv in placer but also in lode mining The history of platinum mining in
t 'e Tulameen dates from the Granite
Creek excitement in 1885, and as platinum is essentially a product of the
placers, its history is intimately bound
up with that of gold placer mining here.
In the early days on Granite Creek
when platinum was purchasable 'at the
rate of about go. cents an ounce it was
regarded by the miners as aTTeTri'ment
rather than otherwise, and usually was
not even saved in the cleanup. When-a
little later, however, the^eprice had advanced to about $3 ah ounce, the metal
when recovered was saved and this has
been the practise since.
Where It Is Found,
Not all the creeks tributary to the
Tulameen river contained' platinum in
association with the gold. In genenrtjiC
may be said that the placers on creeks
on the southern s'id,i> c.f the Tulameen
river from" Granite Creek to Champion
Creek, including the Tulameen itself,
carried platinum as well as gold, while
on the northern side'of the r'ver only
Briar and Eapde creeks were productive,
although not to a very large exteTrtr^/fhe
best placers were undoubtedTyTftlYose of
.the  Tulameen  river' itself between   the
the  years  immediately after led  to dis-^iquths  of Slate  aud  Champion Peeks
coveries .elsewhere, and in i860 gold was
reported to have been found on the upper
Similkameen river at a point a short distance above the mouth of the Tulameen
river. It is probable, however, that some
bars-were-worked on the Tulameen river
about this time," for after the Granite
Greek excitement in 1885, old workings
were, found on the Tulameen near the
mouth of Slate Creek. Although it is
now known that some of the bars worked
by the pioneer miners contained platinum in association with the gold, no
statement in respect of the recovery of
the former metal was ever officially recorded in British Columbia. Dr. Dawson, however, mentions having received
in 1877 a small sample, containing about
an ounce of platinum obtained from some
workings on the Similkameen river about
three and a^alfirniles above the town of
Princeton. is
History of Platinum Mining.
For the 25 years following the first discovery of gold o.tfthe Similkameen river,
placer mining was not prosecuted with
any great vigor, and in the latter part of
this period was carried on almost exclusively by Chinese. The ,djscovery of
coarse gold on Granite Creek in 1885, by
a cowboy, one John Chance, revived the
declining industry and occasioned the
greatest rush in the mining history of
the district. Other discoveries higher up
the Tulameen, quickly folloSfed, and in
the subsequent three years the output of
the district reached its maximum. Since
then  there   has   been a second gradual
Here the coarsest nuggets were found,
a'ld the proportion of gold to platinum
was about one to one. Slate Creek was
next in importance, and then Cedar
Creek, Granite Creek and its wesjffftf;
tributaries, Bear and Eagle creeks .B_oul-
der creek, flowing into Otter lake north
of the Tulameen river, though much
worked for gold, contained no platinum-

ttipn Creek and below Slate creek the
grains became finer and the quantity
gradually decreased.
Methods and Progress.
The methods employed in the mining
of platinum were those commonly practised by the individual miner when mining for placer gold. Previous to 1891 the
miners in the country were without capital, and either worked singly or in small
groups on ground which might be developed without large capital outlay and
which prqmisejl.. quick return's. The
shallow bars and the beds of the streams
naturally received first attention, and
later some of the benches and deeper
gravels. By wingdamming, the beds of
the streams were made accessible, while
in the deeper workings dsfting on the
bed rock was the common method employed to reach the pay gravels. The
pay gravels in Granite Creek rested On
the solid rock, and were in a hard layer
compactly cemented together, but which
readily on washing.

GOOD PROFIT.
An Ottawa despatch says regarding
the Royal Mint that since its opening on
January 1st, 1908, there has been a net
profit to the Dominion of $63,857 after
allowing $13,100 as interest on the cost
of construction.
The profit on the coinage of silver was
$172,544, on bronze $21,565,   and miscel-
ahd   freight  is  delayed   until   trains are
running again.
"The latest report regarding the resumption of traffic puts it at ten days. It is
expected that mails will come via Kere-.

SALE OF COAL LANDS.
The largest single transaction in coal
lands near Princeton was recently accomplished at Spokane, 12,200 acres
eh bloc, being transferred, AndTew Laid^i
law, representing a strong companv, including the multimillionaire .tobacco'
manufacturer, J. Macdonald, ^>f Montreal, with Vancouver and Spokane capital, acquired the lands, the price being
yet unknown to the public.
The major portion of the lands are
those formerly held by the B.C. Colliery
Co., near Princeton, theJdaho-Caal Co.,
and certain claims held by C. O. French
ahd J-I^Wood. The lands^are handily
situated for working purposes. It is said
that the company will begin shipping
as soon as possible. Mr. Laidlaw is ex
pected to arrive in Princeton shortly,
when, no doubt, a more definite statement
of the company's intentions will be forthcoming.      	
Deporting United States silver from
Canada involved considerable expense.
The experiment was first tried in 1906.
In that'-ySar the value of coin returned
to New York was $580,224 and the cost
of removal $7,383. The policy then
lapsed three years^;
It was started again August  30th, 1908
and from then   to January   19th, 1910, it
cost $5,197 to deport coin valued at $561,-
760.
CONCERT AND PLAY.
Those who were responsible for the
concert and play, 'Turn Him Out,' which
was given last Friday night in the I.O O.
F. hall before a large audience, have
every cause forgratification. The results
had an intrinsic value, $81.75, which
was a full compliment of that other value
which comes of real merit arifl'genuine

KING EDWARD VII.
By the death of our King last
Frida}' night au Empire of many
nations, and kindreds, and tongues
mourns for him who had endeared
himself to every subject, high or
low. Though . sovereign, he was
essentially a man of the people,
entering into their joys and afflictions with the spirit and'tenderness
of a father. No one could think of
him as a ruler, although he was
one : real, firm iu discipline and
fair in judgment, but he ruled so
wisely that he commanded the love
of all. Some of his great benefactions in behalf of the sick poor will
reveal a true nobility of spirit that
wins always and at all times. He
loved peace and so be promoted it
by his good words and offices, the
full force and effect of which cannot
be known until history has made it
public. In this respect he will be
handed on to future generations
as 'Peacemaker.' Like his illustrious mother he added much to
the popularity and esteem of the
British among other nations, and
so, too, by their splendid personalities haVe they done more than
all legislation to knit the colonies
and motherland into a compact
whole. Canadians have a peculiar
regard and affection for our late,
deeply lamented king, in that he
could be kingly and yet remain
democratic enough to constitute one
of the people. -So he entered into
our hearts and we love him as the
good friend. Citizens of Princeton
and- the district generally extend
their sympathy along with that of
the whole Empire, tp the bereaved
widow and children.
