No. 31  The Qreenwood^Phoenix Tramway Bore.  jl30o Fear  1200    >)  MOO      ���  1000    ��  0OO      ��  ^*|f^  700    ��  <5oo     ��  Soo     ��  4oo    *  ���oo    ��  F//?sn e.ooo fe-et  The Ratepayers of the City of  Greenwood have given their sanction  to the By-law to grant a bonus of  $50,000 for the construction of the  Greenwood-Phoenix Underground  Tramway, and have thereby demonstrated their faith in the success of the  big. Bore which will be constructed  by a Syndicate of Chicago and New  York capitalists.  The proposed Greenwood-Phoenix  Tramway Bore without a question,  is feasible, is practical, and is the most  nearly demonstrated beforehand of  any of the big mining Tunnels of  America. It will, without.a doubt,  show great results with a reasonable  expenditure of money, and promises  quicker returns than any similar enterprise which has yet been undertaken  in the West.  The unanimous support of the bonus By-law by the people of Greenwood carries with it much stronger  evidence of their faith in the project  than the mere matter of the money  voted,   which in  itself  is  no   small  amount, for the failure of the enterprise would work irreparable injur)' to  the future prospects of the camp.  Most of the men who voted on  the question are interested in mines,  and all are thoroughly conversant with  mines.and mining properties.  The people of Greenwood are  therefore eminently capable of judging  whether tbe Bore will be a success  or riot, and their emphatic endorsation  of the proposition is a guarantee that  the project is thoroughly sound and  practical-  ' All who are familar with the camp  of Greenwood know that the high-  grade belt which the Bore will explore,  is one of the most highly mineralized  zones known, and that it embraces a  stretch of territory five miles long  and two miles wide, extending from  beyond the Providence to beyond the  Skylark and from the Strathmore to the  Crescent.  Starting on the last named claim  which produced 211 tons of ore  which gave ��30,000 or $U7 to the  ton, the Bore will cut through eighteen  known veins  which  run North and  South and are parallel, and average  from 300 to 400 feet apart, and hav7  ing the values evenly distributed, as  proven by, the Providence which pro-:  duced 4,000 tons of ore giving returns  of $440,000; the Elkhorn $100,000)  of $93 ore; while the Skylark produced 1,100 tons worth about $110,000;  and the Last Chance, half way between, which has a high-grade streak  of 8 to 12 inches with values of $100  a ton, and which has also produced  1,000 tons from one big vein of low-  grade ore 10 to 20 feet wide, that  went $8 to the ton aud would concentrate at least 6 to 1.  The Bore will develope a compact  block of 600 acres crossed by eighteen  proven veins which have been opened  up to depths ranging from 100 to 600  feet, ������;. ���' _. -<y  No doubt many blind leads which  do not appear upon the surface will  be disclosed. This is the history  of other Tunnels, which have struck  blind veins carrying fine ore.  No other camp has so many rich surface showings to justify such an undertaking, for this great treasure-house of  $90 a ton. with the values evenly distributed, and an entire -absence of  pocket deposits.  This big Bore or Tunnel proposition  has been the dream of every prospector and of every old time mining man  in this country who has e*ver seen the  ground; but not until th-^rast eighteen  months has it been possible to get the  different property-owners to join in a  consolidation. It took a panic to do  it.  The reason why this camp has been  held back is not because there wasn't  ore; not that there wasn't rich ore and  lots of it; but because there were a  number of small properties being  worked separately at heavy cost. It  cost $45.00 a ton to mine by little shafts  with crude appliances and $12.50 for  treatment charges, so that while with  six to twelve inches of thisore running  $100, and twelve to eighteen inches  more running $10 to $12, each of these  little properties would pay good profits  for three or four to own and work  themselves, yet they would not pay  the expensive management of a stock  company and also dividends   on a big  a mountain   has   produced   close to j capitalization, hence the advantage of  $1,000,000 in ore that averaged  over a consolidation of a dozen of them.  This consolidation will do away  with twelve different managements,  twelve different plants for hoisting,  pumping, and drilling, in short it will  reduce the cost of management 85  per cent., which in the aggregate is  enormous.  This will reduce the cost of mining  from $45 a ton to $10 on the high-  grade ore and will reduce the cost of  mining thc low-grade ore from $4 to  $1.50.  This saving alone is more than the  total values of the ore in many so-called  high-grade camps.  And with a large tonnage, smelter  charges will be reduced from $12.50  to $8 a ton and will be eventually lowered to $6.50 a ton, as we believe it  is the intention of the Company to  build asmejter to treat their own ores,  and to that end they will build a concentrator to concentrate the low-grade  ore which can be concentrated at a  cost of 75c a ton and will produce $40  to $50 concentrates.  As the bore will cut two big low-  grade veins from ten to twenty feet  wide within the first five thousand feet,  and as this ore averages $8 a ton,  which is proven by shipments  of up  wards of one thousand tons, therefore,  the Company will be assured of a tonnage that will keep a concentrator  going, and make a lead .smelter in this  City a certainty.  The Syndicate who have taken'hold  of this enterprise have entered into it  in a cautious, business-like and systematic way, and- have the advice of  the best Engineers they could get who  thoroughly examined the project, and  who have been engaged on the proposition for the past eighteen months.  Moreover, they sent their Engineers  to examine such tunnels a.s the New-  house, the Sutro, the Two Brothers  Bore Virginia Camp, Col., the Capital Prize Bore at Georgetown, Col.,  the Yak at Leadville, the Roosevelt  deep tunnel at- Cripple Creek, and  others in Colorado and Utah; and,  after examining all of these, they pronounced this to be one of the best  tunnel   sites in  America.  While they will own all of thc* properties on the line of the first section  of the Tramway Bore, being 6.U00  feet, laterals will be run and ore carried  from different other properties on a  freight and tonnage basis.  Entering   the   mountain     on   the  Strathmore mine which took the first  prize at Nelson exhibition for the  Province of British Columbia, and  also took the first prize at Spokane  against all the Western States for the  finest high-grade gold and silver ores,  this high-grade lead will be cut within 800 feet of the portal of the bore.  The Defiance which adjoins the  Strathmore, in the early days shipped  $525 ore, which will be reached in  1,500 feet.  From there on, the bore will crosscut a vein every three or four hundred  feet at an average depth of twelve  hundred feet.  When completed it will tap the  great Phoenix mines 2,200 feet below  the surface, and the tonnage that will  pour by gravitation from the portal of  the Greenwood-Phoenix Tramway  Bore with its capacity of ten thousand  tons a day will make this City the  Foremost Mining Camp of the West.  All these are facts, and this is why  he proposition will   appeal   to   every  man who knows  the situation ;    and  these same facts are   the reasons why  the people of Greenwood have staked  the future of their City on the success  ofthe Greenwood-Phoenix Tramway  Bore.  OUR HIGH-GRADE OUTPUT  A partial record of the production  of the Greenwood High-grade Belt is  as follows:  , Providence $440,000  'Skylark  110.000  Elkhorn  100.000  E. P.U. -   50,000  Last Chance -    50,000  Strathmore    30,000  Crescent ���- -���    20,000  Defiance    15,000  Bay -    15,000  Helen    10,000  Gold Bug -   10,000  Silver King, Silver Cloud    10,000  Gold Finch    10,000  Prince Henry, Preston, )  Monis,    Don     Pedro, >*        40,000  Lake and others J .  When it is considered that the Providence which is the deepest mine in  the Camp, has produced $440,000  above the 400 ft. level, and that the  other propt es art nlydowii200 ft.  or less and ha,.- made this splendid  showing, it will be easily seen what  immense possibilities will be opened  up by deep Tunnel mining in Greenwood Camp.  Success of Deep Tunnels.  Anew Cripple Creek is to be opened up under the old one when the  Roosevelt deep Tunnel is completed.  This is confirmed by the announcement of a recent strike of great richness at the depth of 1,500 feet.  The opening of the new ore body  at thc 1,500 foot level has recalled to  minds of prominent mining men the  prediction of wiseacres in the early  days of the camp to thc effect that  the Mineralized zone did not extend  downward to any extent, and that the  life of the camp would be short on  that account. The belief is now that  thc career of the camp will be prolonged indefinitely.  The Sutro Tunnel, with its laterals,  is 12 miles long and is large enough  in addition to its drain for a trolley  line, which has been operated for the  workmen in the various mines. It  carries off all of the water in the various workings, tapping them between  the 1,600 and 2,100 feet levels. It  was planned by Adolph Sutro afterwards Mayor of San Francisco, being  regarded as one of thc greatest engin-  eerin'*- feats of the time.    It relieved  the necessity for huge pumps in the  mines and greatly reduced the cost of  mining.  Renewed Activity in B.C.  Mining.  The season is opening up in a manner which promises a record year for  British Columbia mines. From almost every camp throughout the province comes news of the bonding of  properties, the resumption of operations on others, and the installation  of new or additional plants. On the  coast, no less than in the interior, is  this the case, while reports from the  northern part of the province point to  a season of great activity and satisfactory development. Taken as a whole,  the first quarter of the yearcloses with  a very bright outlook for the chief  mining province of the Dominion.���  B.C. Mining Exchange.  Improvements in Smelting  Great as has been the progress in  methods of mining and smelting during recent years, we are on (he eve of  still vaster changes and improvements  as   to   cost   of   smelters and cost, of  smelting.  Among the most economical of  recently-invented processes is the  Fink smelter which has attracted the  attention of every one interested in the  mining industry, and which is the subject of the following comment from  the March number of Mining Science:  "William C. Fink of Elizabeth,  N.J., has been figuring on going to  Mexico to run a smelter of 500 tons a  day, using his gas. It will smelt any  ore from the black sands of Venezuela,  where there are 30 miles of it and  has to have a heat of 3,600��, to copper, iron ore or any other. Platinum  and Vanadium also require 3,600��.  He says he can smelt gold for 50 cts.  a ton and silver for 24 cts. a ton.  Many inquiries are coming to him  from all over the world.''  likely to be exceeded in the future.  The .Consolidated Company, after  overcoming many difficulties ' both  financial and technical in connection  with its mines and smelter, has entered on a career that promises both remunerative returns to its shareholders  and results of great advantage to tlie  province. The company is a good  illustration of the sound commercial  and industrial basis on which the mining condition of British Columbia now  rests. Within the last few years other  staple industries have occupied a prominent place in the attention of the  public, but notwithstanding all the  vicissitudes it has experienced, the  mining industry has gone ahead and  will always hold the prominent position  in this province.
