What *,' Siss" Has to Say About Lar-  deau Happenings.  '  The Beatrice mine on a  tributary "-of  Fish Creek has always  been supposed  1   to find its natural outlet at Thomson's  Landing and fc'ie supplies for develop^  "   ment last season' were taken up via  Fish   Creek.   For some reason,  however, the management failed to find an  available'Voute down Fish  Creek  over  which the ore could  be exported,  ar.'d  being anxious to market the ore taken  out   last winter they  have  made arrangements to ship it  via Ferguson.  It is due lo the enterpnse and  energy  . of   Mr.   Hugh   McPherson   that   this  result is about to be reached.   lie discovered a route down Goat Creek from  the mine to the north fork of Lardo  Creeki and thence into Ferguson.   A  ' rawhide trail seven mile**; long has just  been completed which lands the ore at  .     Ferguson whence it. will be  hauled  by  sleds   to  Thomson's    Landing.     The  distance by this routet from  the  mine  to the Landing is only 23 miles.   Mr.  McPherson   has< the contract for the  entire work.  William Pool has seven .men working on the Nettie L. A rawhide trail  is being built ftom the mine lo Ferguson and the management expect to  ship a carload of ore before the snow  goes. The property is about four milefc  from Ferguson.-  Since January 25th nearly sixty feet  of tunnel has been driven on tlie l.X.L.  a property on the same lead as the  Nettie L. but. lower down, ft is under  bond'to coast parties for $50,000, part  etock. The purchasers are represented  here by Mr. A. J. Gordon who has a  contract for the tunnel, lie employs  two men.  The force on the Silver Cup has been  irici eased by two more .men who were  sent up this week. Six men are engaged on a contiact for drift ing' Irom  the new workings toward the^ old.  Two h unci red feet of di ifls have been  driven by cnnliactors since January 1st.  Henry Floyd, agent for the Ferguscn  tuwnsilc* has brought his family home  from Revelstoke where he spent the  Winter.  Word has been received here of the  dttytb at Ilia liouic ������i> Ontario of tlio  father'   of Peter M.   Walker  timer iu'the Laideau and  well  in Revelstoli'e.

As there is a large amount of ore ot a similar  character to that of Carnes Creek in the Big Bend,,it is useful to know that  it can be both cheaply and locally treated. The report is mad.* by that careful metallurgist, W. Pellew-ilarvey, of Vancouver,, who, seems to have  gone thoroughly into the matter.     The  Carnes  Creek   Co. repoi t i-- now in  f* < ' n  press and  when complete,.,will be the most useful advertisement of the  northern "camps yet issued. 'J  We have for a long time felt convinced that a considerable, p-;r-  centage, of the gold in the Rosebe.ry ore was in'thc.free state, and that"  the ore could be treated cheaply near the mine. In order to obtain  additional evidence upon-this poiuta sample of 350 lbs. was sent to "  Mr. W. Pellew Harvey,'F. C. S. M. E., of Vancouver, with instructions to test it and icport as,to the. best method of treatment. Below  wo give. Mr. Harvey's report, in full:    , \      ,'     '  . ,      '     ' ';   , A        '  Vancouver, B.C.. Dec. 15, 1S93.' '*"  THli CAltXES CllKEK CoNSOUDATBD'Go'ld'SJixES (LTD.), 1  Revelstoke, B. C.    '.  ���������  Dear Sins���������I have much pleasure in appending my report of the,  treatment of the ore received from you as per the following particulars:  CERTIFICATE'OR ASSAY AND TBEATMKNT.  '    Registered No. 1117. Gold assay, 1.1 oz., value,$22.  Received Nov. 23, 1893. Silver assay, 1 oz., value   .GO.  Mark of sample, Carnes Creek. ,  Bags, 3oP lbs.                '                '. ,' *'  * '       '  Tbe material received for treatment consisted of about'350 lbs. of  , coarse 'crushed arsenical pyrites,  containing both gold and silver? the   ,  metal;- present being associated  partly   in  a free state and  partly  so  coated with   the'baser metals that a double treatment fot the recovery  of the same is necessai y, unless the one treatment referred to hereafter  , is accepted in lieu  of the combined  process.   The  pyrites is of a close  but  brittle structure,  and was found rather hard to crush, but during  thepulverizing only the-average amount of slime  was  made.   This,  however,   in   the case.of stamping, would lie different, as no doubt in   '  '   that case there would be. a large percentage of very fine material made.  .    Many tests havo been made to deduct opinions  as to  the   best method    ���������  for treating  the  ore' in  a practical way.   Such deallwilh the various    c  meshes best suited to the ore, the amount of free gold thatexisted ih it.',  and wbat'aniount of the balance after amalgamation' can be  recovered,  and with what cost foi tioatnient. * ''   "  The bulk as received was'dried and crushed by means of a ball mill  , to pass ten'mesh screens.   This sample-was then thoroughly mixed and -  quartered and assayed; the result being as per "certificate accompanying     <*  this report, which is: , . .._,.'

From  these  experiments it was  easily, seen that the"gold in the  sample is in a fine slate and'equally divided.    Had it been coarse, there  would have been a considerable increase in'gold values with the coarse ,  sizing.   This opinion  was amply confirmed when cyanide treatment  was adopted, thus showing that a complete .extraction of values  was '  ������    made in a short lime with comparative ease. ' ,  1 A large sample of tho mixed ore was taken and crushed  to pass a      u  20 mesh and amalgamated, the recovery being 52.1 per ceul. of the assay-  value.    Another experiment was  then   made  with 30 mesh crushing,  which gave aii exlraetion of 03 pet cent.-  It will be seen," therefore, that ' ,  an average of 57.7 per cent, of the gold exists in a free state. -   >  Another portion of the sample was taken  and roasted nearly to  sweetness.   The roasted ore on being treated by amalgamation gave a *  recovery of ^23.3 percent, only.   The tailings were treated by cyanide,  and this gave an extraction of 85.1 per cent,  cyanidation.    Continuing  the experiment the following data was gathered ':  Consumption of cyanide per ton of ore   -     .15 per cent, or 3 lbs.  ,Acid present in tbe ore     -      -      -      ���������      -      -'* Trace.  Test 1.���������Percolation. Crushing 10 mesh, 72 hours treatment, .4 per  cent, cyanide. The ore was subject to direct treatment, that is without  amalgamation, the extraction being 00 per cent, of the assay value.  Test 2.���������Percolation. Crushing 40 mesh, 75 hours treatment, .25  per cent, cyanide, The ore was-subject to direct treatment, that is  without amalgamation, the extraction being S7.3 of the assay value.  Test 3.���������Coiioisted of cyanidation of tailings after amalgamation,  the recovery being 87.3 per cent, of the tailing value in -IS hours.  Many other tests were made, all bearing on the  treatment of this  , ore, the conclusion to be arrived at being,:  1   (a) That the ore is easily milled at a small cost.  (b) That 30 mesh crushing is the best for economic milling.  ((���������) That amalgamation gives a little over 50 percent, of gold on  the plates.  (d) That (he ore can be tieated very successfully by the direct use,  of the cyanide proces������.  (e) That, as fine crushing causes slimes and loss in float gold, coarse  crushing by ordinary crushers and rolls,'instead of the stamp battery,  would be desirable, especially is this so as more equal crushing is possible by such means, and a better pulp for percolation is obtainable.  (f) That the strength of tbe cyanide solution should be .25 per cent.  (g) That economic extractions are made in three days by maceration and percolation.  '   (b) That at least 87 percent, of the gold present was recovered liy  the direct application of cyanide.  The  total  cost of treatment on the basis of the figures given will  not exceed $3.50 per ton.   Should your directors wish to izo further into  the question of the milling of these ores. T should be glad   to give them   *  any detailed instructions as to the application in practice of thc methods  as suggested by  Yours faithfully,  W. PliLLKW IIarvkv,  F. C. S.  J. A.

Tin* following from the Trout Lake  Topic is worthy of diotice showing the  future that awaits that inipoilant  camp with tbe transportation that is  eagerly i-'xpeeted this reason:  ���������'To get an idea what the district  could pi educe, pivMiming that the  various di-veloped piospects Weie to  turn iu and send theii , product to the  smelter���������which will be the 'case only  when a railway is running through tbe  valley- ihe following is a conservative  c.-timale: lb nadview, with a large  showing and exli'iiMvely developed,'  lias at present MK) tons of ore onjhe.  dump, be-ides small amounts at the.  various workings oil (he group. .Tlit-n  the True Fissure, witli a concentrator,  could easily turn out 30 tons of ore pep  month. The Great Northern at present  lias 2tiil Ions of ore at the workings  which would e"-i!y, il" (be'mine was  vigorou-ly worked, be aiigiiiented by  a monthly oul put. of at ica.-t ft) t/)!)s.  Then Trout J/ike's banner mine', the  Silver Oup. walked ut ils full capacity  would produce :3U0 ions' pel' month.  The St.I-'ilmo'vvlien more fully developed could easily account for a monthly  output of 10 tons. The Black Eagle  'Would piobably average 5 tons; the'  Had Shot 10 tons; the Abbott, when  the ore bo'dy i-" encountered, at/least  20 tons; the Beatrice 100 tons: and all  other claim.*-- an aggregate of 20 tons  per month, making a grand total per  annum, under present development, of  7;50t) tons. This estimate is not overdrawn, we think, foi 'Trout Lake as  regni ds trails and means fit* communication from tlie best properties, is in a  splendid condition. Of course a great*  deal iiould.depend on .the method of  development, which would be adopted  at th" various? mines If the property  is opened up wilh a view to0 a future  sale, very little oie beyond that  required lo pay working expenses  would be shipped. On the other hand,  if they are worked with a view to  periodical dividends the  total  aimuint  ' , o ...  will be greatly increased. On the  whole the estimate is a fair one, and  we consider-, well within the mark.  ginning of. the new century.
