No. 34  Following in reference to'Erank-  Hn camp is taken-' from, report of  (treological survey:  - Both in the nature of its ore- deposits and- in its-geology this district bears a strong, resembance to  t the Boundary Check district.., *The-  rocks are uery similar and.the'con-  tact raetamorphism-, forming:lime  Bilicates and magnetic chalcopyrite  deposits is the same. - In,Franklin,,  of course, - it has yet to be proved  that mineralization was on the  same " gigantic -scale -as in the  Boundary,' andi thattheoreshave'  the minerals iu the'same'proportion ���������to make them'so-amenable to  smelting.-    .  -   ,V '     -  The. most exclusively developed'  ���������claim, is.the McKinley -which has  had about $30,000 expended on"~it in  surface. improvements, 'tunneling,  trenching   and  diamond  drilling.-  Four leads haye'beeu discovered in  =a band of limestone'running nortli  ���������coward Franklin  mountain.    Development has scarcely, determined  \ is        "the strike of the leads, but they appear to run transversely acros- the-  limestone bands.    Along the ledge-s  the^limestone^'is ,altered  to green  silicates, epidote,'hornblende, -garnet, &c. ' The lowest ledge yetXun-  covered hasa large (development of  magnetite; witlhsome iron-aud copper sulphides. _"���������      -'*  -  The -second1 ledge- outovpps-for a  width-of about thirty  feet.1 but the  dip.. is-1 at   a low angle southwest.  It contains a "large ainoiint <>f galena. , It is said to "yield high grade  ere,  with good values   in silver.  The upper and best developed ledge  haB iron and copper pyrites as the  chief metallic minerals,, and a con-  -siderable   amount of the gangue  minerals.     Ifc  is- supposed  to-be  .-about forty feet wide dipping about  ���������45������  south,  and has been followed  '300 feet.    Fromia point 213- feet in  the tunnel the fourth ledge i������ cut  for a distance of fifteen -feet.    This  ������������������Beems rich in copper.     The gold  values are low, probably on. am average lower- than in the Boundary  ���������ores,  but the copper is expected to  run a good deal higher.  The same company that" is developing the McKinlt-y is testing the  Banner claim on Franklin mount  ain, by diamond drilling etc.  This claim was "not visited this  season. At the time of the first,  -examination there was a strong,  very wide lead of quartz', carrying  .galena, blende and chalcopyrite.  The Maple Leaf claim-on Fi-ank-  ��������� lin mountain has ledges along the  ' -contact of the reddish syenidc.with  ������the altered basal rocks.    Tho mineralization is chiefly confined to the  syenite.    Fractures are filled with  seams of chalcopyrite and pyrito,  or with green malachite resulting  from tho alteration   of its copper  ore,  and tho constituents of the  syenite aro selectively replaced- by  the Bulphides.   Tho coloured constituents are the first tosuffer, leaving the conspicuous feldstar crystal  iin a sulphide base, but often the  whole rock is replaced* by the ore.  At several, points along tho contact,  which is drift covered, wide  stretches of such mineralized rocks  havo been uncovered', and in the'  syenites,  a few hundred feet back  from the.'contact,'a vein four feet  wide   of fairly well   mineralized  rock lias been opened.  The Gloaccston group, now being worked under bond by the Dominion Copper company was not  visited. Ou tho G. H. claim of  ttbis group is a ledge of magnetite,  ���������with a little pyrite aud chalcopyrite.    In placcB it is at least  Arountii.the.

So  far  the  results on -tho McKinley  seem to be encouraging,."  -   Since none of the claims'are past  ;the-prospect stage, and. none ofi the  workings  have attained- depth, it  cannot be definitely stated that another mining camp has been added  to the British   Columbia list.    But  the   camp   has   many   of the earmarks of a m'ncrali bearing   district.

Various  other   improvements     havo   been  ���������made so as to bring tho plant up to  the highest degree of efficiency.   It  is expected  that tho company will  now.bo able to produce refined copper-at about SJ cents per pound,  and, with two furnaces at the present price of copper, be able tc earn  approximately   ������1,080,000 net per  annum;, to-be increased when the  three hew . furnaces are in operation.. .       .
