'  During  the past  two  weeks development has  been  carried' forward  at  thc thousand-foot     level of Hie Type  and a     cross-cut  has been run iin a  southerly direction,  result ing in s-tii-  kiiiff the ore,     iho first ever encountered-at depth.

If  the ore   continues as well  a.s it 'has  started it' implies a new leasa of life  to    this    we 11-1 nown '   Mount Sic'er  proj erty.  Over the long-distance telephone  yesterday Mr. Livingston confirmed  the news of the strike, which he described its vefy encouraging.  The Tyee ships .about two thousand tons per month to the company's  smelter at Ladysmith. The general average of the ore treated . al  tlie smelter runs h\e per cent copper, $3 to' .$1 in gold, and three tf-  lour ounces silver, and carries25. ;t(>  35 per cent barium sulphite. in Uk  tipper levels portions of ihe ore bodies are richer in copper than other.'1  and permit     of a certain amount ol  piiiifi- has    yet been made of the now  find.  Editorially the'.'Colonist says: Our  readers will |,e pleased to learn that  ore has been struck on the thousand-  foot k-vel of tho Tyee mine at Mount  Sicker. The extent and value of  the find'cannot as yet be well defined.     .,   "  The significance of the discovery is  best  understood  by practical  mining  men   from. tuclfnct     that no ore had  pre*, iously'  hcciV''  found in  the Tyee  mine  below      the three-hundred  foot  lei el.      For  the past,  two. years   the  management'has been prospectiuc for  it, a"tl     the'    future of the mine, of  -oiirse, depended upon  their success.  Not only did-'the future of the. ��������� Tyee  depend    upon it, but to a yeiy' large  extent the future of the whole camp.  As-intimated,   ,it,;is impossible' to  ������ay what the:    new (iiul "mc-iiis,  hut  the fact    that ore has been found at  all at that '" depth gives, rise  to very  sanguine    hopes, ami     naturally the  management  feels elated at  what  is  regarded    us the good fortune of tlie  company,.     Should .the anticippiliions  be 'realized sis.,    to. available ore deposits it ' .mean's-tiiat the spirits j������  the, whole,^mining community will  be  revived,  and  will '.give new   hopes t0  those interesiried.''  The fact. ��������� that, ore had disappeared  at-.the three hundred foot lev*l, and  that efforts to, find it again had for  a long .time proved unavailing, placed a damper on the district', and Wad  a' paralyzing effect on mining op<-ra-  tions   generally.
