The total profits for the year are placed at  $374,745.52. Gross recovery from ore milled was $796,591.78, from  which were deducted expenditures of $421,846.26. The amount  of ore milled during the year was 74,205 tons, with an average  assay value of $11.05 a ton. The company paid during 19.15 dividends to the amount of $300,000 or 25 per cent on the issued  capital. ' '  Compared with 1914, the average assay value of the ore  mined and milled in 19.15 was 85 cents a toil iuoi-e, so that while  the quantity milled in .1915 was 4229 tons less, i.he total value  of the gold recovered was within $749 of that of 1914.  The following figures are totals for the "period of six years,  1910 to 1915; tons of ore milled, 398,653: total receipts (including  about $47,000 interest on money in bank), $4,360,������>00; expenditures, $2,216,111; net profits, $2.144,3S9: dividends paid on an issued-  capital of $1,200,000, $1,788,000.

REPORT  OF THK PRESIDENT  To the- Stockholders of the  Hedley Gold Mining Company:  During the past year   everything at  the mine and mill has gone along very  well.  The lower levels of the mine look  strong ;uid healthy.  The present developments on these  lower levels, however, lire probably in  in tlie richer portions of the shoots,  and with full development of these  levels we only expect to maintain the  general average of ore, say, around  $10.00 to $11.00 per ton.  The increased baseness of the ore  with depth, which increases concen-  trate tonnage and lowers the grade of  same, necessitates a change irr our  milling system. We have carefully  tested out straight cyanidation of all  our ore with fairly good results and  we plan to install the necessary machinery for this treatment during the  early part of 191.0, which we believe  will he some improvement over present  method of shipping concentrates to  smelter..  For detailed information 1 submit  the reports to the Treasurer and vSnp-  erintendent.  Yours truly,  I. L. Merrill,  President.  I have examined into the affairs of the Hedley Gold Mining Company  for the year ending December 31, 1915, and have verified the Balance Sheet as  shown above. .  1 Hereby Certify that this Balance Sheet shows the financial condition'  of the Hedley Gold Mining Company at January 1, 1916.  W. S. Harper, f. a. a. ,  ��������� ,- AUDITOR."  REPORT OF    THE    GENERAL    SUPERINTENDENT  Gentlemen:  For the year ending December 31st.  1915, your mill, at Heelley, B, C, has  treated 7-1,205 tons eif ore all mined  from the Nickel Plate Property. The  assay value and extraction are as  shown in the Treasuer's "Statement  of Operations."  The Dickson Incline in the Nickel  Plate Mine, through which all ore  from below No. 4 Tunnel is hoisted,  has he-en extended to S25 ft., and stations cut at the 700 and S00 ft. levels.  At the 700 ft. level, ore was encountered close to the station and across-cut  was run thro ugh the intervening a n-  desite sheet to the ore beyond, which  is the extension of the ore in the 000  ft. level. This ore is highly satisfactory, having a width, at the 000 ft.  level, of 25 ft., between walls, anel the  whole, where opened up, will maintain  an average of $12.00 per ton. We have  stoped laterally to the west of the incline for a. distance of 175 ft. but so far  the; stope has not been extended easterly, although wc have no doubt but  that it will extend in that direction  for a considerable eiistance. Below  the 600 ft. leve������l the only work done on  this me is at Ihe 700 ft. level, where  stuping was  commenced on December  1st, 1015. the values are satisfactory  and we expect to maintain an ave-r-age  value of about $13.00 per ton, An inclined raise em the ore will be started  at once to connect the 000- and 700 ft.  levels. No work e>n this ore has been  done below the 700 ft. level, but as it  is vi-jry strong, we elo not expect to cut  out for some distance. This will be  determined in the- Spring hy diamond  chilling, when another cross-cut, can  he fun from the S00 ft. le-.ve-l.  Below the 700 ft. ore, and separated  from it by an andesite sheet, lies  another valuable ore body. This was  cut right in the 800 ft. station. A  cross-cut put through it, together wiih  a drill hole from the surface, would  indicate it to be as large as the 600 anel  700 ore, but the values are higher,  averaging $15.00 per ton. To date this  is all that has been done on the S00 ft.  level. The; intention now is to sink  the incline 50 ft. more, put in a suitable pocket, complete all shaft timbering, then develop both these 01-1: bodies  below the 600 ft. level., At the same  time advance information may be  gained hy diamond drilling.  Most of the diamond elrilling was  done last year with a view to aseer-  taining just what tonnage; eif ore could  be foiiiul the lime silicate beds below  the present stupes. This work, although not complete, was very satisfactory, indicating a tonnage of 88,400  anil a milling value of $12.50 per ton of  ore. A cross-cut 200 ft. long was run  from the No. 4 level eif the No, 5 incline, which .intersected this'ore, anel  is now being mined.  Several   small,   payable   ore  bodies  wet e ' discovered   irv other   sectious'of  the mine, .ami   there is but  little question that others will be found.  The reserve tonnage above  the No. 4 tunnel level  in  the old   workings   is.... 35,025   tons  averaging $8.52 per ton.  The reserve tonnage below  the No. 4 tunnel level is 38S.527   tons  averaging $10.55 per ton  operations will show a greater profit  per-ton of ore mille!il and the'equipment will then lie .-itit.il.le for ye.-us to  come.  On account of the 01 e change, as explained above, it was found necessary  to add more machinery to the cyanide  plant. This was done and put in operation in tho latter part of October,  the total expenditure being $34,290.80.  Additional expenditures for additions  to plant amounting to $10,970.27 are  shown in the Treasurer's report.  The whole plant has been brought  up to its highest efficiency. Power  plant,' mill, tramway, Humes, etc,-,  were- put in good shape, ,-ind when the ���������  additions planned for 1'tlOaie made,  at an estimated cost- of appi oximately  $60,000.00, it should run, with hut few  repairs, for many yeais. '  All development at the mine was  charged to operating. This development included the following:  Sinking        175 feet  Raising          60 "  Di if ting        200 " ���������  Cross-cutting        500 ' *  Diamond elrilling....  .... 2.784 "*  Respectfully submitted,  Gosier P. .Jones,  General Superintendent  Making a total of 423,522 tons  averaging 10.39 per ton.  The above includes our estinrstes of  75,000 tons of ore, having nn average  ass-iy value of $11.00 per ton, below  the 800 foot level. We have not drilled this ground as -thoroughly as we  planned, nor has it been opened up by  drifting and sinking; but with an experience of fifteen years at this property, we think it safe to assume that  the reserve tonnage will be as shown  above.  Conditions in the lower levels of the  mine have, within the lar.t two years,  changed considerably. While the ore  bodies are larger in these levels, and  stronger in every way, and, contrary  to the rule in most gold mines, maintain at least tlie same grade per ton;  the specific gravity of the ore has increased sir that it requires only 10  cubic feet of ore te-r the ton, where  formerly it required more than 12 feet  to make a ton. This is caused by the  increase in arseno-pyrite and adds  considerably to the cost per ton of ore  milled, as the concentrate tonnage  has increased from 3,S31 tons in 1913  to 0.21S tons in 1015. This condition,  together with war prices and miners'  wage increase, all tend to reduce the  profits.  For this reason tests have been  made to determine the most profitable  method erf treating this ore. For two  months 25 per cent has been treated  by total cynidation with very satisfactory results. As soon as this systerrr  is adopted the cost will reduce and the  surplus increase correspondingly. We  feel confident that when the necessary  changes in   machinery are   made   the  REPORT OF   THE TREASURER  New York City, Feb. 9, 1916  To the President and Stockholders of  Hedley Golel Mining Company:,  Attached are Balance.Sheet of January 1st, 1916, and detailed statement  of earnings for the year 1915.

The Uevereux   patented   agitator (a  . boat's propellor   on the end of a vertical shaft),    placed in    the   e-euiter   of a  small oi- large tank, Hat or conical bottom, ranks with the   be.-t ol' slime agi  tutors.    On account   of   its   ease   and  readiness   of     putting   a      charge   in  motion, it allows    tanks of any  s'i/.ei to  be used as si-ttle-rs as well as agitators.  It will    agitate    pulp    of   almost   any  specific   gravity   thoroughly   and efficiently   with not an   excessive   horse  power.    The     simplicity   eif    its   few  working   parts, the small    amount   of  attention needed,   the ell'ectiveness of  its   agitation,   and the   utilization   of  tanks of any size, are qualities hard to  excel.  In a lank 30 feet in eliameler with  conical bottom of 23 deg. and vertical  'side 9 ft. aheivecone, a 4-foot diameter,  4-bladed, right handed propellor revolving 90 r. p. m., installed (5 ft. above  apex of cone, will put in agitation a  slime charge of specific gravity 1.25 to  J.50 of 100 to 105 tons dry slimes from  rest to agitation   in about 20 minute**.
