Printing Office  al furniture were purchased.  The new press, after much delay, arrived oh the second of October. It  proved to be a fine machine, large e-  nough to print two pages of the paper  (as published in 1904, about 4& inches  square) at a time. Towards the las t  of Noverribe'r more type was received,'  and an improved staple binder purchased.   A large illustrated Annual Num- ���������tVrM^C-i-y-jCT,  THE ANACONDA NEWS  17  ber was also published  at  the  end  of  this season.  The present year was commenced  with a six page paper of the same size  used during 1903 and 1904. However,  the space was so short that eight page  extras were of almost weekly occur-  rance. So, when the large stock of  paper  on  hand  became  exhausted  at  The News Press  Installed KTovemer, 1904  the end of March, a new style of enlargement was tried. The pages were  increased a third in length and made  the present more symmetrica! shape.  This gave space equal to about nine  pages of the old  size,   besides  greatly  improving the appearance of the paper.  OAt this time the present high grade  mines series was commenced, and the  first of the many maps printed. On  the 19th of April the present new Century Expanded body type Was bought  to replace the old and out-of-date type  hitherto in use. New style type for  news headings was also put in.  Several months ago a stock of first  class ruled bill heads and round cornered cards was added to The News, and  later a series of one of the latest type  styles, Cheltenham Italic. This series  is intended for the printing of the very  nicest stationary of all kinds. Still more  new type was received only a few  weeks ago expressly for this Annual  Edition.  During the past six months the circulation of The News has been increased  from 130 copies to 220.    Of  this  number, about 150 go out in the mail; mainly toPhcenix, Midway, Ferry, Eholt and  the Mother Lode mine.    The  rest  are  taken locally,   about 40  in   Anaconda  and: 65 in Greenwood.    Financially, the  past year's record has entirely eclipsed  all former years, and we expect to  do  still  better  next  season.     The  News  extends its thanks to  all  of its  many  friends. Progress of the Year at the Boundary High  Grade Mines  During the last six months The Anaconda News has published a series  of twenty six High Gr^ade Mine Numbers, in which our more important  high grade properties to the number of  over 30 have been given careful reviews. The object of the present article is to present, in as short a form as  possible, an account of the important  changes in these mines dtiring the past  year, together with tables showing  shipments, men employed, etc.  The season has generally been an extremely prosperous one, and has seen  many new names put on the shipping  list. Several mines having a comparatively low value of less than $25.00 or  $30.00 per ton have been shut down for  the present. Rumors have been circulated, however, of the possible erection  of a cen^fcral concentrating station, in  which event most if not all mines now  idle could be profitably re-opened. On  the oposite page is printed a revised  map of this district showing all of the  properties on which extensive work has  been done this year, and their positions  relative to the towns and to each otht  'cr.  THE LAST CHANCE. *  It has been decided to place the various properties reviewed in che order of  the shipments made from each during  the past year, placing those mines from  which no ore was shipped at the end of  list. The Last Chance comes first with  a total shipment (first and second class)  of 689 tons.  On this mine extensive deveolpment  work has been done, and several ore  bodies blocked out. The main shaft is  down about 100 feet, and several other  shafts have also been put down on this  claim. From the main shaft a long  crosscut has been run east and west  nearly 300 feet, and is in ore a good  part of the way. From a point 200  feet west of the main shaft a drift to  the north and south has been run on  the ledge, which at this point varies  between five and ten feet with a six  to 24 inch pay vein. The south drift is  now in rbout 200 feet, and is still in  good ore.    The ore from  this   mine  is  EXPLANATION OF NUMBERS   ON  MAP ON NEXT PAGE.  B. C.

THE PROVIDENCE.  Next on the list of shippers comes  the Providence mine, with 600 tons. A  great deafc of development work has  been done here during the past year,  and a new machinery plant, consisting  of a large boiler and ten drill compressor has been installed. The surface  buildings at the mine have also been  much improved.  On the 400 foot level the drifts have  been run long distances to the north  and south, and several new ore bodies  have been discovered by crosscut tunnels. The shaft has lately been sunk  to the 500 foot level, where a drift to  the"lead has shown it to be as strong and  rich as on the 400.  The Providence would have undoubt-  ably made a much better record on the  shipping list and otherwise had it not  been for the long shutdown at the beginning of the year. As the wood supply around the mine is becoming short,  replacing the present plant with electric machinery is being contemplated,  and is soon likely to be done.  AT THE SKYLARK MINE.  Third in tonnage for the past year  has been the Skylark, from which 468  tons were sent down the hill. . At this  property over 600 feet of drifts have  been run to date from the 150 foot  shaft, and a considerable amount of ore  has been blocked out. The last of the  large payments on the bond was  made  some months ago from the ore taken  out, and the mine is now on a paying  basis. The history of the Skylark is  well knowtiiti the Boundary district.  Several years ago the mine was abandoned as worked out, and remained closed for a long time, when an enterprising syndicate of Phoenix men took it over. They started development work not  more than twelve months ago, and the  result is that the mine is now third on  the shipping list and has a promising  future.  THE E. P. U.  Fourth on the roll of shipping mines  conies the E. P. U. During 1905 this  mine sent out 255 tons high and low  grade ore, the high grade giving^ returns near the hundred dollar mark.  A force of 18   men  were worked  at  this property the greater  part   of  the  season, although it has been shut down  the last two or three months,   all available ore  having  been  taken  out and  more developement work being  necessary to open up new stopes.    The ledge  on this claim averaged about eight inches, but did not  require  much  sorting.  The  power  plaint  consists  of    boiler,  hoist and pumpy together with the long  gravity tram down which ore  is  taken  to the bottom of the, gulch.  AT THE CRESCENT MINE.  Fifth in shipments comes the gj.eg.  cent mine with 90 tons; this ore, however, all came from development, as no  stopes have been opened as yet. On  this   property  extensive  development mm  1st  THE ANACONDA NEWS  21  is being done. A new main shaft has  been sunk to the depth of 130 feet, and  is soon to be deepened to the 320 foot  level. At the the 130 foot level north  and south drifts are in respectively 70  and 80 feet on the ore body, which averages 20 inches solid ore and stands  vertical. Several other shafts have  been sunk   en   five  other  high  grade  will be run to explore tl e same from  the 130 foot level of the present workings.  A plant consisting of a ten horse  power electric hoist has been ordered  for the Crescent. Cascade power will  be employed. An electrc compressor  may soon be ordered, together with  other machinery.    The Ci escent is one  The Helen Mine.   B. C. Copper Go's Smelter  in the Distance  led_.es nearly as large as the main body,  but no work is being done on these at  p.esent. A large iron cap carrying  considerable values in silver has been  exlored lately. It is thought that all  ���������of the five ledges on the property are  trending towards this cap, and a tunnel  of the most promising of all the high  grade mines in this district, and we  would not be surprised to see it take  the first place on the shipping! ist in tha  near future.  THE HELEN MINE.  Of all our l%h value mines the  He!- no  THE ANACONDA NEWS  en in Anaconda shows the most improv-  ments, both in ore and equipments, for  the past year. Eighty tons of the first  class ore were sent out from this mine  this season, all being taken out in the  course of development. When work  was resumed last April with six men the  only shaft was down 130 feet. In this  distance it encountered no less than  three breaks, so that ore and water had  to be handled four times in hoisting.  On the first of August work was started by hand on the new shaft. A short  time later a hoist, boiler, and steam  .drills were put in. Early in October the  compressor plant was installed, and  sinking pushed faster than ever. The  new shaft is now down to the 210 foot  level, and drifts have been started  north and south. The ore body is over  five feet thick at this point, and contains a 22 inch pay streak. For upwards of 125 feet the ore has gone  straight down with the shaft, and at  the present point looks very solid.  Long drifts have been run north and  south in fine ore on the 75 foot level,  the combined length of the drifts being  over 175 feet. The new shaft is double  compartment, and is well timbered  from top to bottom. New mine buildings have been   put   up,   electric   fans  AT THE BAY MINE.  Seventh on the shipping list is the Bay  mine located near the Skylark. This  property differs mainly from the others  in the fact that most of its ores are of  an iron pyrites variety, carrying considerable free gold. A 100 foot shaft  has been sunk and considerable drifting  done to the south from the 25 foot level.  Work was suspended on the shaft for  the greater part of the year because of  the large amount of water encountered.  A hew road was built to the property  last summer.  THE DON PERDO.  We have now to consider the work  done this season on the Don Pedro,  adjoining and belonging to the Crescent  group. The main shaft on this property has been sunk to a depth of 80 feet,  and a drift run to the north over 100  feet. It will soon be connected by a  raise with the new shaft being 'sunk  150 feet beyond the old workings.  When this is done stopes will be opened up and mining started. The lead  averages about a foot and carries high  values.  " THE MAVIS MINE.  Considerable work was done this  year on the Mavis, next the Bay. The  ore on this property is the same as that  to be opened until still more ore is  blocked out, when such is done all will  be in readiness to facillitate cheap and  ea?y mining.  ���������_.!_.--.   T>_-._.  on uic Day t in  xact,  j-i   nicy  axe  v/ii   wjc  same lead. A shaft has been sunk a-  bout 50 feet and some drifts run. The  ore is about twenty inche3 in thickness. THE ANACONDA NEWS  23  THE STRATHMORE MINE.  Work is soon to be resumed on the  Strathmore mine, situated above the  Greenwood baseball grounds to the  east. A long tunnel has been driven in  to catch the lead at depth, and it is expected that it will be struck by driving  a short distance farther. Much more  work has been done a short distance up  the hill, where a shaft and drifts were  run on the ore. The lead is about a  foot wide, and carries good values in  gold and silver.  THE BONNIE BELLE.  On this property a shaft has been  sunk over 40 feet on the ledge, which  averages two feet of very heavy galena. A car of ore shipped this fall gave  returns not over $30.00, which would  be a paying proposition if it could be  concentrated, but for the present will  not.bear freight and treatment charges.  THE ELKHORN MINE.  ' The history of the Skylark has been  repeated by the Elkhorn, which was  shut down for the major part of the  year. Work has. been. suspended on  this claim, all of the available ore having been taken out. Some two months  ago operations were resumed, and the  ore struck after sinking the shaft 15  feet through the dyke. The newly  found lead is about two feet thick and  carries very good values.  THE PRINCE HENRY.  Much work has been done this season  on the Prince Henry, on the Phoenix road  below the Last Chance. The main  shaft is now down to the 115 foot level,  and a drift to the north is in 25 feet on  a very fine lead a foot thick. The values are mostly native and ruby silver.  A new and more convenient shaft will  soon be sunk, and things put on a shipping basis.  THE PRESTON.  Wtork has again been resumed on  the Preston, a short distance down the  hill from the Crescent. A shaft is  down about 110 feet on the ore, which  is at this level over a foot wide. A  five horse power hoist is on the road  for the mine, and when it is received  stoping will begin.

About ten men are now employed at  this property driving tunnels at the top  and bottom of the hill. In the upper  tunnel the ore is between five and seven  inches, and carries values resembling  the E. P. U. Stopes are being opened  up in this part of the mine. The lower  tunnel is in about 200 feet in ore. A  shipment is soon to be made.  THE BARBARA MINE.  On the Barbara mine no work has  been done since spring, when the shaft  was down 150 feet. The ore is of a grade  something like that of the Bonnie Belle,  and will need concentration. It is  thought, however, that the values will  improve with depth.  THE TWIN AND MOUNTAIN  QUEEN.  These mines are considered together  as their ores are both in the Bonnie  Belle class, needing a concentrator. On  the Twin a short tunnel has been driven into the hill exposing a two foot lead.  The Mountain Queen has a shaft a-  bout 40 feet down on a three foot vein  of nice looking galena.  HIGHLAND QUEEN.  On the Highland Queen, above Ana-  ccrda to the west, a shaft, tunnel, and  considerable surface cutting has been  done. This shows up two veins over  18 inches wide and carrying considerable values.    The ledge  in the  tunnel  looks especially good.    Work may soon  be resumed.  THE GOLD BUG.  On the Gold Bug work is still progressing on the long tunnel, which is  now in over 500 feet. It is hoped that  the lead will be struck in the near future. Much ore was shipped from this  mine in earlier days.  THE DYNAMO.  A force of six men has resumed  work on the tunnel at the Dynamo  which is to be driven 150 feet to  tap the lead. Much work was done on  this property some years ago, and considerable ore taken out.  THE TIP TOP.  Work was done this summer on the  Tip Top, on the Bay and Mavis lead.  The ore body was proven to be about 15  inches thick, and carries somes good  values.  THE SILVER CLOUD.  On the Silver Cloud, near the Skylark, a shaft 100 feet deep has been  sunk, and drifts run some distance on  the vein. A machinery plant was. put *  in, as the water was very bad. The  ore contains good values.  MAORI GROUP.  The Maori Group of claims, near the  Crescent to the north, has been the  scene of considerable development this  vear. The ore body is about ten feet  wide, carrying good high grade values. Progress of the Boundary Towns During the  Past Year  The past year has been a  period  of  considerable prosperity in  the   Boundary Creek towns,  especially  in Midway.    The steady improvments at  the  high grade mining  properties,   the  re-  sumtion of operations at the   Boundary  Falls  smelter,   and,  most  of  all,   the  large amount of railway  construction,  have all  been   factors   in   building   up  our towns.    As by far the  largest  improvements for any  single town  have  been made at Midway,  that  place will  be first considered.  MIDWAY BOOM.  *  Up to the middle of the year Midway  continued a slow going village: At  this time, however, the first railway  construction gangs came into town,  and events; began to move. By the  first of August the boom had gained  much headway. Within a month the  town had much more than doubled in  size.  Six  months ago   Midway  had   two  stores of all descriptions, arid not more  than five hotels, larg'e and small.    Now.  there are six grocery and general scores  running in town,  several restaurants,  drug stores, book stores, and fifteen or  sixteen  hotels.     The main  street has  been extended towards   the  river  two  and a half blocks, and many   buildings  have been  put   up   on   other streets.  Many new residences, large and small,  have  recently  been   erected.      For  a  time during September,   lumber  could  not be brought into town fast enough  to satisfy the demands of the builders. During this period, it was no  uncommon thing, to see the lumber  hauled to the site one morning, and  the completed building up by the evening of the following day.  Three separate   railways  have been  pushing construction in   or near  Midway this fall, and work   on   the Great  Northern will likely be  continued most  of  the  winter.    The  Canadian  Pacific  will likely push its line through to connect with the main'road some time next  summer,} and  the  Midway  <&i Vernon  will in all probability dp much work next  year.    Work has been   started! on   the  G.   N.   station at Midway; the   track  has been ballasted through  from   Curie wj and regular passenger  trains  will  soon be put on.    It is likely -th&t  Midway will be made a divisional  point  on  the main   G.    N.   line   through   from  Spokane to Vancouver; in that  case   it  is   certain   to   become   an   important  town.  FERRY, WASH.  Directly across the Kettle River  from Midway is situated Ferry, Wash.  It has come into existance and grown  to be a town half as large as Midway  in a time not much exceeding five  months. Ferry is built on a bench a  short distance back from the river, and  is secure from floods. The town contains two good general stores,  five   ho-  25 26  THE ANACONDA NEWS    .  tels, custom house, railway warehouses,  G. N. station and yards, several restaurants and about fifteen saloons. A  public school is to be built in the near  future, and other.improvmcnts made.  GREENWOOD AND ANACONDA.  Locally in Greenwood and Anacchda  many   improvments   have   been    made  The reservoir is connected with the  town by a six inch wood main. Mains  have also been put down the more important streets of Anaconda (Everett,  Butte, Denver and Tacoma Aves., and  2nd St.). Four inch mains are used on  most of the streets. Fire hydrants  have been in at three corners in Anaccnda.    Key hydrants have been put in  Copper Street, Greenwood, B.C.  during the past ye* r. Most important  is the new Lind Creek water system,  which has now been.in operation some  three or four months. A reservoir has  been constructed well up in Lind Creek  gulch, is lined with concrete, and has  a capacity   of   about   250,000   gallons.  for the use of a majority of the families, and water put in the houses of others. New fire hydrants have also been  put in at ..several corners of Copper St.  in Greenwood, formally unprotected,  and also at many points on Silver and  Gold Streets, and Kimberly Ave. ff  THE ANACONDA NEWS  27  Several of the rrost important atreets  in Anaconda have been graded this fall,  and their appearance greatly improved.  Everett Ave. has been graded from  the upper end at 2nd St to its connection with the main road at 6th St. Butte  Ave. has been still more thoroughly finished the same distance, and some work  will soon put in a crossing to connect  with the new bridge to the west side  built this spring. We would likely get  a G. P. R. flag station in Anaconda if a  petition signed by the residents was to  be sent in to the railway company.  The new Silver Springs brewery, located on Denver Ave.,   was  started up  a  The Eastern Half Of Anaconda.   B; C. Copper Go's  Smelter in the Distance.  *  has been done on Denver Ave.* eth St., couple of month3  ago.  and 2nd.   These will likely be complet- Considerable building will   likely  be  ed next spring when the frost gets out done in Anaconda in the spring,  as  all  of the ground.    The C.   P.   R.   has  re- available houses   are   now   taken   and  paired the crossing at Denver Ave., and surrounding industries continue to grow 28  THE ANACONDA NEWS  and employ more men. The smelter  enlargements soon to be made will also  stimulate growth.  In Greenwood two or three new   residences  have been built  since spring.  The former Dr.   Jakes*   hospital    has  been divided into three  new  comfortable residences.    No new store buildings  have yet been built,   but   business   has  been good among the merchants.    With  the resumption of work at the   Dominion Copper Go's works,  and the  many  men employed at the nearby high value  mines, times should be very good  here  during the season to come.  PHCENIX AND GRAND FORKS.  In Phoenix and Grand Forks the past  year has seen a good many changes  for the better.  In Phoenix the new, large,   Brooklyn  Hotel has been opened   to  the   public,  and is an ornament to the   town.    The  new city hall is finished   and is a   fine  building.     The   large    Miner's   Union  hall being built there is   nearing   completion.    It is to be a three story building, and will contain   a   large  auditorium,  rooms  for the   meetings   of   the  various unions, club rooms, etc.    In all,  Phcenix   has   seen   a very   prosperous  year.  In Grand Forks, also, the past season  has been one of prosperity. Several  new buildings have been put up, bridges  rebuilt, new sidewalks put down, and  other improvements made. The prospect of work soon being started on a  second smelting plant is also very encouraging.  ���������\ The Year at the Boundary Smelters  The past season has been an era of  comparitively steady progress at the  three smelters of the Boundary district, with the exception of the long  shutdown at the Dominion Copper  Go's works at Boundary Falls. However, it is in the Granby Consolidated Go's big plant at Grand Forks  that we observe the most changes.  THE GRANBY SMELTER.  Foremost in importance of the many  improvements made during the past  season on the Granby smelter has been  the installation of the self feeding apparatus.  Work was started on this change a-  bout the middle of February, and the  first four furnaces were charged by this  process from the first of April on.  The remainder of the battery (at that  time, six in all) were changed to the new  feed a short time later. This new system does the work of about 80 men,  and means a saving to the company of  over $80,000 per year.  The arrangement of the bins had to  be entirely changed to admit of a double track being built between a long. row  of chutes. The charge cars are large,  holding about three tons each, and are  run by electricity. The car is first run  to the coke bins, where it receives the  correct amount of fuel. It is then  weighed, after which the proper��������� quan- ���������  tity of ore and flux (iron and sulpher),  is added. When loaded, the car is rapidly.  sent into the feed room, where it runs  onto a track directly across the furnace. The charge is dumped into the  furnace by means of a long lever, operated by the motorman, and the car is  soon back on its round to the bin.  Loading the cars is done in a simple  way; A high platform runs between the  tracks along the distance occupied by  chutes, and the gates are provided with  long lever which are easily operated by  a few men.  During the year the capacity of the  plant has been very largely increased by  the addition of two new giant blast  furnaces. One of these was blown in  October 7th, and the other about the  15th of the month, A ninth furnace as  large as the seventh and eight installed  this year will soon be received and put  up. ^fith this last addition the capacity of the plant will be doubled over  that of thi^ spring.  The method of slag dumping ha s been  completely changed over from granulation to the hot system; Steam locomotives are used entirely for hauling out  the pots,  The converter room is now equipped  with two bloweris and several stands to  handle the large amount of matte produced by the eight futnaces*.N������ custom matte is at present being handled.  The works with ������^n be run by electric power from the Kootenay Power  Go's plant at Bonnington Falls,   in ad-  29 I-  R  80  THE ANACONDA NEWS  dition to the power generated by the  Granby station near the smelter. No  Cascade electricity will then be used.  The Kootenay line is to be completed early in the new year, and the sub-stations  at Grand Forks and Phoenix will soon  be finshed and ready for business.  A dividend of three per cent, on the  par value of the issued shares, or $405-  000, was declared on December 1st.  This is the second dividend paid by the  Granby, the first, amounting to $182-  #30, having been declared two years  ago in 1903. This makes a grand total  of $538,630 paid in dividends to date.  It has been decided to increase the par  value of Granby stock to $100 e?ch. and  reduce the number of shares proportionally. A regular dividend will likely be paid on these new shares from  now on.  THE BRITISH COLUMBIA COPPER  CO'S SMELTER.  The B. C. Copper Company's smelter at Anaconda has been run steadily  throughout the year, there having been  smelted some 205,000 tons. The principal addition to the smelter was the  briquetting plant which was installed  early in the year, and winch was put  into operation in May.  Since then a portion of the great accumulation of flue dust has been worked  off. The slag dump has been extended  so that its southern end is now across  the creek nearly opposite The News  office.  It has recently been decided by  the  Board of Directors of the Company to  enlarge and entirely remodel the plant  along the latest and most approved  lines. To this end, the present 42X160  inch furnaces will be replaced by three  immense furnaces each 48X240 inches  at the tuyeres.  These will be the largest furnaces   in  Canada, and   will   have a   capacity  of  The Bristisli " oltimbia Copper Go's Smelter (1904)  approximately 600 tens per day each.  Hand feeding will be done away with,  and charging from side dumping cars  drawn by electric,: locomotives substituted. The Power and Mining Machinery  Co. are to be the builders. Slag from  these great furnaces will be hauled in  cars of capacity of 25 tons each, which THE ANACONDA NEWS  31  will  be  handled  by   electric    locomotives. ^,  The dumping  of these   will   also  be  done electrically.  The present ore bins will be completely changed so as to allow the charging cars to be drawn underneath. They  will be made ten feet higher, so as to  increase their capacity, the railway  trestles and tracll^leading thereto  being correspondingly raised. Coke  bins will also be constructed.  Addional electric machinery will consist of three 300 H. P. motors to drive  the new blowers, and a 100 kilowatt motor-generator. Five trolley locomotives  will be provided to haul ore and slag,  and there will also be several smaller  motors for divers minor, purposes.  The present blowers will be replaced  by three large Root machines.  It will be seen from the above that  the Copper Company intends to keep  well in the head of the procession, and  to have a smelting plant second to none  in complteness and in economy of operation.  AT THE DOMINION COPPER  CO'S SMELTER.  One furnace at the Dominion Copper  Go's Boundary Falls smelter was blown  in on November 26, and the second will  likely be started within the month. A-  bout 300 tons per day are being treated at present with one stack. Most  of this ore is coming from the Brook-  lyn-Stemwinder mines in Phoenix; when  the Rawhide is started up the second  furnace will be blown in.  A large additional slag dump has  been secured directly across the creek  from the plant. This ground will last  for over two years, by which time it  is likely that a new smelter will have  been built.  The Boundary Falls smelter will likely be changed from steam to Cascade e7  lectric power in the spring.     This will,,  considerably cheapen  the   cost  of. ore-  reduction. :������������������  ���������l���������t-n. Changes   and   Improvements   at    the    Low  Grade Mines,  MOTHER LODE MINE.  During ths past year this property  has been a constant and next to the  Old Ironsides group the largest shipper  in the Boundary. It is estimated that  by the end of the year there will have  mined in 1905, some 180,000 tons.  Since the mine started shipping in 1901  there has been sent out 754,000 tons,  all of which, with the exception of a  few hundred tons sent to Nelson, has  been smelted at, the local works.  During the year there have been made  a number of improvmems in the plant.  First amongst these is the new crushing plant which was installed during  the latter part of 1904 and" which was  put into service early in this year.  Under this arrangenient all ore from  every part of the stopes and quarries  centers at the shaft, where it it falls  into large pockets, being then hoisted  in four ton skips to the crushing plant  bins.  After passing the crushers it goes to  the railway bins over a 160 foot .conveyor belt. In the shops there has  been installed a drill sharpening machine, which has been found to be a  perfect sucess, saving much time in  sharpening and making a more uniform  die. The upper boiler plant has been  moved to a point near the hoist where  it will ultimately come into service  when the underground wTork  increases  so that the compressor can no longer  supply air for hoisting purposes. It  has recently been decided to substitute  electric power for steam in some sections of the plant. At the compressor  house there will be installed a 500 horse  power motor to take the place of four  boilers now in use. The steam cylinders of the Corliss compressor will be  disconnected and the fly wheel replaced  by another of the same weight but fitted with a rope drive. Three 50 kilo  watt step down transformers will also  be located at the mine. The engines  now running the crushers will be replaced by 100 horse power motors, and  the machine shop also run from a small  motor. The electric lighting will be  done directly from the power line,  and the present lighting plant dispensed  with. The discarded machinery will  later come in useful at other of the  Company's properties where electric  powf r is not available.  In the way of buildings there has  been erected a new carpenter shop,  and wagon sheds. The bins have been  covered and sheathed, steam pipes being placed between the sheathing and  the inner wall of bins to prevent freezr  ing in extreme colt weather. Several  small shacks have been converted into  dwelling houses, and a new powder magazine built. The old crusher pit  has been converted into a fine storage '  cellar for food supplies, and the  build- *  -RRS-a THE ANACONDA NEWS  if  33  ing above into  a saw mill and  diamond drill shop.  Considerable exploratory work has  been done during the year. A diamond  drill outfit was purchased in the early  pai t of the year, and drilling has progressing steadily t ver since.    Besides  and have also shown that the ore may  be expected to continue with depth.  Horizontal drifting north from the extreme north end of the 800 level has  further disclosed a large body of ore  rich in sulphides, and carrying good  metal values, besides.     Much drilling  '������*:+;*���������  ?<s-mx:-mM'. 'x.>  *4  Mother Lode Mine���������Latest View, Showing: Large  Size of Quarries  accomplishing much desirable negative  work in pointing out where not to go  for ore, the drill has found a number of  valuable bodies of ore whose existence  in some cases was not even suspected before. The most effective  work has been done on the 300 level.  Here several vertical holes have disclosed' ore' of rema:rkable ' high  grade,  remains to be done <n the 300 foot  level yet to prove the continuity of ore  appearing on that level, but not on the  upper levels, notably the magnetite  deposits.  In the way of development work, the  main shaft has had a third compartment  run from the main entrance on the 60  level, down to the 300, this being usei 34  THE ANACONDA NEWS  for ladders and pipes. For a number  of months back preparations to continue sinking the shaft deeper have been  in progress; these preparations consisting besides the third compartment a-  bove mentioned, of stations and pockets  on the various present levels. The  active sinking of the shaft itself is now  being pushed as fast as possible. It  is to be from the 300 1 evel down, of  four compartments, two for the skips,  one for the men and timbers etc., in  which there will be an ordinary cage,  and the fourth for ladder way and  pipes. The fourth compartment will  later on be extended up to the 60 foot  level, the present main entrance to the  mine.  The present depth of the shaft is a-  bout 350 feet. The ore mined from  the shaft is now hoisted up the skip  compartment to the 60 level when  the skips are not in service, but so soon  as the the 300 station and pocket are  timbered, which will be within a few  days, the auxilliary hoist will be moved  to the 300 level and hoisting done  through the third compartment. Three  shifts can then be used in the work of  sinking and progress facilitated.  The major part of the ore mined is  still from the the glory holes, although  an increasing amount is coming from  thevarious stojpes. The ore body about  the shaft on the 60 foot level which was  being explored when the last News annual was published,   is  still being  ex  plored, the limits not yet having been  reached. A large amount- of ore has  been taken from this body* but only a  small fraction of the total probable tonnage contained in it has been extracted. fiTo stope this ore, an intermediate  level is being run between  the  60  and  Mother Lode Mine���������View Taken Several Years Ago  200 levels, under the ore, which will  then be stoped upward to the surface or  so far as the values remain profits  able.  It is expected that by the time the  additions to the smelter plant are completed the  mine  will have  the glory THE ANACONDA NEWS  35  holes, the stopes at the i end of the  mule tunnel, the 120.foot, the 230 foot,  the 300 foot and the 400 foot levels all  in shape to; furnish ore* Possibly the  500 level will by that time also be opened up.  AT THE GRANBY MINES IN  PHCENIX.  At theGranby Consolidated Mining, Smelting, and Power Go's mines  in Phcenix many changes and improv-  ments have been made during the  year, v .  A new crusher plant has been installed and large additional bins built to allow of ore shipments being made over  the Great Northern Railway. This line  was completed to the mines by March  last, and is now hauling over half the  daily output, or about 1300 tons. The  balance is taken  out over   the  G.   P.  R. ;       ,  Plans have been made for a new four  compartment shaft  with  a  mammoth  crushing plant in connection, to be sunk  from a central point and to be used' as  the main working shaft.     Work is   to  be started on this in  the near  future.  The main tunnels connecting  with  the  bins and crushing plants have been  enlarged  arid   equiped  with an    electric  haulage system.    Most of the ore coming from the Knob Hill,  Old Ironsides  and neighboring mines is still being extracted by the glory hole  method,; few  large stopes having yet been opened up.  Development work has steadily progressed at the mines throughout the  year, so that the ore blocked out at  present is much in excess of that in  sight twelve months ago, in spite of the  large amount taken out and sent down  to the smelter.  During the year  a  large a mount  of  diamond drill work has been done, both  on the Graby Group proper^ and on  the  new properties recently bought.    In all,  considerable   over  two miles  of  drill  holes have   1 c en j.ut down .sincerthis  method of exploraton  was commenced;  of this, over half has been   during the  past year.    Two drilling outfits are being used, and both are run double shift.  A great deal of work has been done  on  the 400 foot levrl of the  Old   Irorisides  and Victoria mines, where the ore bodies have been proved to be very  extensive.    Much work has also done on the  Monarch  and  Gold  Drop   claims,    on  which the ledges have been shown  up  to the satisfaction of tjie management,  ilt is intended to do more of this kind of  development during the coming    year  than   ever   before,   especially  on   the  newer claims recently purchased.  Over $432,000 was expended last year  in acquiring a large number of new  mining properties in Phcenix Camp and  elsewhere. The claims recently purchased are the- Monte Carlo, Monte  Christo and Fraction, Gilt Edge, Gold  Drop and Fraction, Nuggett, Phillips-  burg Fraction, No. 13, Monarch,   Tarn-  ���������$ -i 36  THE ANACONDA NEWS  arack and Fraction, and Missing Link,  with a total area of 354.06 acres. The  older properties in the Granby group  contain 338.73 acres; thus making with  the new a total area of 692.79 acres, or  over a square mile.  The Gold Drop and a few others of  this group of newly bought claims have  had/a large amount cf development  work done, but others, notably the  Tamarack, have had no work done except diamond drilling. However, this  drilling has shown up extensive ore  bodies, and it is likely that active mining will be started on all of these claims  before much longer. Several new  properties have also been ������������������ recently acquired in the Similkameen district by  the Granby Co., principally for iron  fluxing ores.  THE DOMINION COPPER GO'S :  MINES. ./,  Work is again in active progress at  the mines of the Dominion Copper Co^,  in Phcenix. The bulk of the ore shipments to the smelter at Boundary  Falls are at present coming from the  Brooklyn-Stemwinder Group, where between 65 and 70 men are now employed:  The mines have been put in good shape  for shipping, and much development  work is at present being done. The  ore fram the Brooklyn mine is very  good grade, averaging somewhat higher than either the Mother Lode or  Granby.  At the Rawhide, the largest in extent of the Dominion Copper Go's prop^  erties, work is being pushed. A new  electric air compressor has been ordered, and is at present on the road  to the mine. The compressor house  is nearing completion, and will be ready  when the machine arrives, as will the  foundations. A large glory hole has  been opened up, a gravity tram built  to carry the rock a short distance  down the hill to crusher arid ore bin,  and shipments will soon begin. About  25,000 tons were sent out from this mine  during the run of the Boundary Falls  smelter last spring under the riianage-  ment of the Montreal & Boston Copper  Company. Y  The Dominion Copper Co.   also  owns  and will operate the Sunset; Athlestari-;  Jackpot, and other claims. ,  YEAR'S PROGRESS At THE  Y ;  '������������������"������������������_   EMMA MINE  During the past year there has been  sunk at the Emma a two compartment  inclined shaft which at present is 185  feet deep.  . At the 150 ft. level a drift has been  run to the ore body (which was found  about 60 feet north of the shaft) and  the drift has been continued along the  ore some 70 ft.
