" ,'  Prospectors are entering the  main range of-the Rockies north  and east of Port- Steele.  a_ Favorable reports, are, being  . heard" from tho iron mines on  Hull river.        ;    ���  Gold mining,in the Port, Steele  district presents much activity,  and only the absence of facilities  for cheap transportation pro  vents other branches of mining  ��� from assuming important- proportions'.  So   far   as   development   has  gono'ih this" district everything  ,- tends to prove  thc  permanency  of tlio'big silver-lead ledges:  ; '.   lt. takes time and patience  to  "���develop even a promising- mining  camp to that basts -where  it. may  be classed  as  among  the  solid,  - .permanent    inslituJ ioi',-     o'\    a  country.  ���' ,���- ���  ���  ' On every hand in "the Port  Steele district there is apparent  prosperity and--- activity this  summer. There is more genuine  development work in progress  now than at any time in the his  lory ol* tho district.  The placer mines on Wild  'Horse creek are important producers and furnish many thousands of dollars to their owners.  , ' Mining investments, to many  in the cast, appear to be more or  "less on tho,gamble order.  Before you  purchase   mining  stock  you   should   obtain   information on all   matters   having  a  , bearing   in    fixing    lhe     future  value of such slock.  "What is bettor than a dividend  paying mine?  It is easy lo be seen that an  investor has a, wide lield iu the  port Steele . district, for his  money.  The placer mines of this district have been worked for years  Moth placer and "quartz mines  are paying dividends.  Nature has only just begun to  expose her vast deposits of  copper in this district.  On Wild Horse creek, ten  miles distant from the town of  Port Steele, gold ore of a fair  grade has been found in workable quantities.  It should not be. forgotten that  thc Port Steele district has  other resources besides the  metals and minerals.' . Lumber,  agriculture and' cattle raising  furnish a field foi' investors.  The building of the north   and  south     railway ������/ through  high grade copper and if is only  a question of a short time when  they will yield fortunes lo their  owners.,  A marked characteristic of  many of-the ledges found in the'  Porl.

Thc great future of  tho Port Steele district depends  largely on cheap and'convenient  transportation     to    bring     thc  various  resources, so   favorably  located, to the industrial centers  When  wo  turn  to the past, history of the Port Steele  district,  its production in the past of over  ��20,000,000. in   placer gold,' also  that it has been a  constant   producer jn 'that line since the early-  sixties, and at the -present time  when quartz niinihgi's'ycUin -its  infancy,   with   but  three   mines  producing  ore  to  the  value   of  nearly ��:3,'000,000   in-1900,   wilh  -oal mines su'licicnt -o   monopolize all the present transportation  facilities of the district.    That a  largo-number  of c properties  on  Tracy, Wild  Horse.   Lewis  and  .Sheep    creeks'   have'    a   large  amount of rich ore, in   sight and  on the several dumps,   and' that  careful estimates show .that tho  Port   Steele    district   with   increased means of  transportation  for ore, coal iind fluxes, can produce minerals to the extent  and  value of nearly a, tf 1.000,000 per  month.'   This district can   pride  itself in thc fact that a world  of  valuable   minerals   arc   concentrated inside its boundaries.  - The coal areas of  the  district  are exlensive and practically  inexhaustible.     AVc  have  coal  of  all descriptions aud of  the highest grade,  suitable   for  smelter,  steam or heating purposes.    Tho  coke   production    is   enormous.  Our iron beds, lately discovered,  are of immense size and a,  hematite  of excellenl   quality.     The  silver-lead properties  show  immense    ledges    of    high   grade  galena.    Gold quartz of  a,   free-  milling    character   abound    till  over   the   district.      Copper  of  every grade, native, chalcanfhite  chalcocite. chalcopyrife, te.trahe-  drite,     malachite     and    azuritc  abound in the dislrict.

Metallic iron in a more or loss  , pure condition i.s occasionally  met with, in nature, but the  supply of metal from this source  is wholly inconsiderable. The  iron ores in which iron exists as  ' oxidelmiy_bd"3ivided into three  classes, viz., ferric oxide, as  hydra!ed ferric oxide, or other  hydra!o, and as 'ferrous and  ferric oxides combined, of which  magnetic oxide of iron is lhe  type. To the first division belong- the red hematite and  specular ore, to lho second  brown hematite and bog- iron  ores, and to the third the magnetic iron ore, properly so called  or loadstone, and various modifications of this found in different  localities, and usually also designated as magnetic ore, although  frequently' not possessed of  strongly marked magnetic pro-o  perties, .and  also  the ironsands  ' . of India, New .Zealand, St  Lawrence,'and elsewhere. These  latter are  usually  almost  pure  ' oxides'of-iron, intermixed with  more or less silicious matter and  are distinguished. ��� by their remarkable freedom.from tendency  to take up oxygen and pass  into  >lj a state of ferric.oxide, ,the which  '   property  is  not by any means  ��� possessed to an equal .extent by  all so-called magnetic ores;   just  " as deposits.of ferrous carbonate  by  tho action   of  heat, air, and  moisture   become   changed,   so  ���   beds  of   ore  exhibiting   in  the  .'���    main a composition akin to  that  ��� of magnetic oxide of iron   often  ,    contains   portions - which   have  become    converted   by   similar  agencies into oros more resembling . ' rod   'or   brown   hematite.  ��� .Owing also lo the variable inters/mixture of gang'ue.of   various  ��� kinds with the veins of'iron ore,  the physical, properties of the  substances become more or less  altered." so that -it ,is often  difficult to classify  a particular  1 -ore otherwise than ��� in , broad  ���general terms/' According to  the nature and amount of the  admixture substances', the value  of the ore varies  largely.     The  ' presence of certain  impurities,  ��� notably of phosphorous, in more  than- minute quantity^ prevents  the use of certain ores for ' particular purposes, and" thus reduces their value; the admixture  of,vparticular.kinds of gangue in  other cases renders the ores un-  suitable for working in the same  kind of way that would otherwise be advantageous; iu smelting such ores by means of a  blast furnace, different kinds and  amounts of flux  for  the  earthy  - impurities arc requisite in  different cases, thus affecting the  cost of production���so that in  fine the value of an ore is by no  means necessarily proportionate  to the amount of actual iron  present therein.  The   iron   ore   found   on   Iron  i  Creek, a tributary of Bull River,  eighteen miles from Eort  Steele  ��� is a remarkably pure red hematite, and contains but a trace of  phosphorous, or sulphur, or  oxygon. Nineteen claims have  been located on Tron Crock, and  the locators have shown up  several strong veins, two of  which are over 50 feet in width,  in fact it may be said that there  is a mountain of ore. The discovery of theso large bed's of  hematite iron is one of special  importance to the district. JWith  coal and coke, lime for lluxing,  and the close proximity to water  power, transportation facilities  assured by the north and south  railway, which will pass within  about a. mile of the mines,  there is no doubt but that the  production of iron will be one of  the most important industries in  the Fort Steele district.  by sm61ter men?
