At the close of'one year and-at  the beginning of another,- it is interesting to look back over tlie past  twelve months and note what. pro:  gress the Atlin Camp has made.  We have not experienced any  boom and 110 fortunes have been  made, but if increased gold output  per capila^andthe discovery of new  areas of workable ground is any  criterion of growth, we can well  claim that the Atlirr District has advanced materially.  Fortunately, or unfortunately,  according to bur view point, large  areas of prospected ground, as well  as the previously acquired uu-  prospected areas, have been acquired by the companies, and the:  trend ot events during the past year  indicates that vwithin a measurable  length of time1'the country will be  in the hands of organized capital.  Looking at things fiom the-vantage  ground of our present knowledge of  the area and richness of our .old  cbamaels that'traverse the. benches  adjacent to, the present creeks, we  cannot but consider the advantages  that would have accrued to the  District, if, at the beginning "ofj  things in this Camp,-.placsr claims  had been even 250 feet square, and  iiad no 80-acre leases contiguous to  the rich creeks been granted, for it  is admitted by all that the extensive areas of placer deposits in this  District would have given emplov-  ' aneut to some thousands of individual miners.  W��e   Creek.  The year 1904 has done much to  increase our knowledge of our District, has broadened our conception  ol its resources a.nd given us faith  in the permanence and solidity of  the mining industry. To appreciate what we have, it is necessary to  visit' the different creeks ��� see  the workings of the hydraulic companies, grope your way into the  drifts, and dive down the timbered  shafts of the individual miners.  Ou Pine Creek, Willow Creek, Ta-r  Flats and Gold Run,���all portions  <sf the same or different runs in the  Pine Creek system,���the Tes nits of  development work during 1904  have been perfectly satisfactory,���  under the sloping hillsides, covered  with brush and timber, with he ivy  sand-banks and i-u) placss strata  of boulder clay overlaying the yellow leads liave been discovered.  and benches, hitherto considered  valuless, have been found to be well  worth working.  The Pine Creek Power Co.,  whose president is Mr. F. T.  Blunck, and hydraulic superintendent, Mr. M. W. Loveridge, owns  the largest and most complete hydraulic plant in the District, and  actively prosecuted hydraulic operations in the south benches of. Pine  Creek. They moved something  like 130,000 cubic yards of gravel,  sand   and   boulder  clay,   stripping  some 10,000 square   yards   of  bedrock.    W il-had not   been   for the,  particularly hard   stratum  of clay:  which overlies the pay-gravel, this  company    would    have    moved   a  greater yardage of gravel, for they  have 2,000 miner's inches of water 1  at their command and   use   two 7-  inch monitors iu   each  of  the two  pits operated during the season.  A little way further-up the creek,  a new company, organized and  managed by Mr. J. Mv. Ruffner audi  called the North Columbia Hydraulic Co.. purchased outright the  Eastern leases from _J.be Eastern-  Hydraulic Mining Co., together  with ditches and plant. This company installed their plant and  opened up a pit, cutting a narrow  gash in the yellow leaG and demonstrating -.the continuous, course of  the channel iu the south .benches of  Pine.  On the old Caledonia Group,, a  small area of ground, worked under  the management of Mr, F. M.  Brackelt and owned by the Atlin  aud Willow Creek Mining Co., and  just adjacent to the property ofthe'  North Columbia - Co., produced  $15,000 during the past season.  Though Willow Creek lay'dormant, it-was not.on account, of the-  lack of values, but until an economical aiid satisfactory method of-mining that.flat ground has been evolved. The advent of steam shovels  into the District, which is promised  for 1905, and the successful installation and operation of these giant  diggers will solve the problem of  profitable working much such  ground in Atlin.  Tar Flats,-which seem to form  the link between Gold Run arrd.  Willow Creek channels, having  been purchased by the Switzer  Robinson Corporation, is the sphere  of active drilting operations during  this winter lays'having .been given  lo some six different paumerships  on this ground. -Tlie work now  being carried on only demonstrates  that the good opinion' formed by  the purchasers of the property is'  justified by results. We hope to  see a large steam shovel plant in  operation here in the near future.  Gold, Run, thai old glacial run  which parallels Fine Creek and  whose limits are still'undefined,  was Ihe scene of the first attempt  at dredge mining in the Atlin District. The British-American Dredging Co.,���W. O. Switzer, general  manager,��� operated their liucyrus  continuous bucket type dredge  during die summer. "While tlie  prognostications of ihe piumulcis  and builders of lhat perfectly constructed machine had to be considerably modified, it was amply  shown that when tight, heavy  ground is shaken .tip by deep blasts,  and tlie excessive-wear and tear on  the lips of tlie buckets deviated by  'the'introduction of hooks of heavy  construction inlo   the  bucket  line,  with the view to tear up the ground, 1  success, will   attend the  dredgers'1  operations.    Active drifting opera-;  lions were also carried-on ,by .many  miners, with variable success.     On  this creek is to be seen  one   of the  most perfectly laid out drill,   mines  in Atlin, and, indeed, 011 good authority, anywhere ���: it is that owned  by   Mr.    A.    P.   Thomas.  '  After  years of preparatory work, he is in j  position to take out the pay gravel  in a. most economic manner.  Spruce   Creek.  While Pine Creek flows more  water than Spruce, the' latter is the  longest creek in the Pine Creek  watershed, and pay gravel has been  found for a distance of jo miles of  its length. .During the past season,  despite the constant, litigation, the  individual miners reported to the  Government Office as having won  over $90,000 on this creek, which,  however, does not represent the.  total amount won by them, as many  of those who win an amountJessi  than 5i52,ooo, do not make .any re-;  port, royalty being only charged en  all over aiid above that figure.  From Discovery .to .1.20 below has  been th-'..scene of active placer raining inuuighottt 1904, and in the  front.benches'dTifting is being cou-  tinuoysly prosecuted, some 115 men  working underground this winter.  J1 would i.-sem tliat the gold bearing channels of Spruce Creek looki  a more or less direct course, while  the present creek winds considerably. One observes that invariably  where there is a bend iu the .creek,  forming, as it. were, .an arc of a  circle, tire chord is represented by  the pay channel.  As   rin  illustration   of   this   fact  and also of one   of the  good   drift  mines on  Spruce  Creek, we   have,  only lo mention the  property pur-1  chased   by  Messrs.  Berger, Sweet!  and Fleming froui   Pat  McNichol.  This partnership lias  driven a tun-'  nel 400 odd feet into the hill, from  a point iu a bend about   120 below  discovery,, wlaeme the creek deviates  most from a straight course.    After  driving through solid rim rock for  a  distance  .uf   200   feet,   the   pay  channel was encountered  and subsequent    development    work    has  proved that it crosses the bend.  Two new Spruce Creek companies caiue into .being in 1904.  One of these was the Spruce Creek  Power Co., with Mr. E. T. Blaine  as manager, and Mr. Hays Haslett,  hydraulic superintendent. This  company acquired all the  interests  the Camp IlanieJl Mining iViiliivi-  ship, the Blue Canyon L';u inu' hi';,,  and nearly all the iru'ividiial '.������ < i-  a tors adjacent to I lie Bint.- Canyon on Uppar-Spruce deck. Ti-i  company began construction 011 .;  dredge specially designed to si:.'-'  cessfully cope with conditions! ,->  Blue -Canyon, A 'being a ~t yi loot  open connected Lype, elevator,  dredge. A right-of-way 7J.' iviik:;  long was cut out, and a pole ':::���.-  erected, to connect .with power hi;..  from Pine Falls to Gold Run. Th>.  company transported soir,c\joo tun1  ot material, built the most itp~;r.-  dale dining-:i"eom,k'ilj.-Iieii arid- ��� ...--  ing cpvriTtcrs for the crew, and gut  so far advanced with tire coiisti ���i<v-  tioii'oi the dredge that they promise  to be digging' by the.middleof June.  Just below the above company'*  property is the -extensive aiea  known as the Crown Group ot  hydraulic leases ��� comparatively  flat ground,���.which will have to be  worked by some mechanical method.  Considerable prospecting work was  done by .the holders "with distinctly  encouraging ��� results, and we look  forward wilhconfideucc-lo the discovery of rich pa}'on 1I1 is property.  Ofthe smaller properties ou which  active work was carried on, wc  might mention The Gladstone Hydraulic Mining. Partnership, ���  Messrs. W-heelock & McClosky,  managers. This partnership owns  rich bench ground, but, like all concerns on Spruce Creek requiring  water in'quantity and good dump,  they have to bide their time, untii  the creek ground is worked out.  On Little Spruce, a shaft 27 fc-jt  iu depth was sunk by Messrs. Robinson & Brow.n,-on ground'held by  them. T-his is the beginning' ofthe  prospect rug of this creek. . Jt is  quite possible, that some ofthe uki  channels ol" Spr.uce underlie thv  modern formations .of its sm.ii!  neighbors.
