SOUTHEAST KOOTENAY IN 1904  A Resume of the Mining Industry  - Lead    Production - Matters  of Importance to Those   Interested, in Mining.  Coal mining in tho Crow's Nest  Pass showed increased activity  in 1904. Tho, opening' oJ coal  areas in I hi' Fording river district will murk nn epoch in coal  production in 1905. The opening of Ihe Flathead valley, wilh  its immense areas of coal and oil  by 1he Provincial government,  will in the near future prove of  vast importance to Southeast,  Koolenay.        '   -    ���   '  Conditions, and the expansion  ���of silver-lead mining-in this district are equally favorable to thc  active operation of the  big  lead  The  mines ol mis section. Tlie Si.  Eugene has evidenced by its  output for thc yoar. that it is the  - largest and most productive lead  mine in Canada. The North  Star has been a constant shipper  and rank* high among the  dividend paying mines of the  Province During the past jour  the Sullivan Group Mining Company was SaccessIn I ly ��� reorganized, aud -its indebtedness  removed by an issue of bonds.  ��� and thc buiklins of a smelter at  Marysviile carried on to a  successful conclusion. An ariol  tramway Irom the Sullivan  group oi mines to the smelter at  Marysviile is aboul completed,  and preparations, at Ihe mine,  have been made, so that upon  ���"'the.completion of the smelter,  work at the initio will, be resumed.  Tbe   year   has    witnessed  in-  ancient bed of the creek. Prom  the bottom to liie top ol the  ridge is a distance of fi'Xi teei  All the water of Perry creek has  been brought io the top of 1 his  ridge, by 'Hume and pipeline  live miles long. Prom a pen  stock pn top of the mountain  water is brought down to the  bottom, and connected wilh hydraulic monitors.' The pressure  at this point is aboul 100 pounds  to the square inch Two of  ihese monitors are set up and  connected, and their capacity 1o  cut away gravel i.s something-  wonderful.  Another placer properly which  is deserving of special mention  is thai known as othe Thompson  lease. It is worked by means of  a shaft, and drifting on bedrock,  it is needless to sayr Ihat the bed  rock gravel is rich, or the  ground could not be worked in  this manner. Six men vyorking  last summer averaged 818 to *21  to the man, per day.  Gus Theis and B.' Durant have  two leases on Perry creek", near  Old-town, which are also being-  operated by means of sha't and  drifting. ' This company have  installed a largo steam pump to  take Ihe water from ihe drifts.  The Perry Creek 'Cold Dredging Co. is another company that  is 'operating on Perry' creek  This company have installed a  large dredge, jnsl above ihe  Hydraulic Company's ground,  and preparatory arrangements  are now being made lo operate  the dredge as soon as the season  opens.'. The ground is also being prospected by means of  shafts and tunnels. There is  qvery reason to .believe that this  j company are pleased with their  j property.' They have thorough-  quirements of the local smelters  have been satisfied. Despite interruptions to continuous operation the coal and coke output  lliis year is at least fifty per cent  in advance of any previous  achievement in this respect.  During ihe past year Montreal  capitalists have organized and  incorporated the Imperial < Coal  and Coke Company. Ltd., with a  capital of Sl.iiOO.rioh lo operate  88 square miles of coal lauds,  situate on Fording river, north  of the areas owned by the Crow's  Nest'Pass Coal Company. The  coal areas controlled by the .Imperial Coal and' Coke Company  are situated on Fording river  and are pari of what are known  as the Green Hill areas and comprise riS square miles (52,1520  acres) of coal lands'. The properties of this company arre situ-'  aled in the basin between two  ranges and cover a practically,  continuous chain of saud-  stone mountains of varying  altitude, running almost north  and south, which are separated  by valleys, gulches or canyons,  running almost east aud west.  Prom these valleys il will he  easy 1o mine the coal by tunnels  to the north and south as desired.  HEMATITE  IRON  MINES.  Six Miles of Iron Located ��� The  Ore a High Grade Hematite.  '��� 'The Bull River iron mines are  located on Fenwick mountain  about eighteen miles from  Fori Steele, and .comprise 20  claims.  f|T  creased interest in placer mining| jy ' cxploiod the capabilities of  and several important devcop- j {,ho <.-rnvel as to' its ability to  ttients in this branch, ol mining produce Ihe. vellow metal 'if'  have   taken   place.      The   chief  wori���H( on a largo'scale; and the  centres of * activity have been  �� Wild Horse creek, Bull river and  Perry Ooroek. A company was  incorporated lo carry out a large  - undertaking on Bull river, the  intention being to dam the  stream above the hills, convoy  the entire waters of' Bull i ivcr,  through a big Hume a distance of  10.000"feet, to a point below ihe  falls, then to use it for power  purposes, the generation ol electric power-.' and worlc the bed of  the river for gold, .when the  . river had thus been diverted.  The project was a bold one. and  present developments indicate  1 hat the coming year will see a  completion of this vast undertaking. '-  Ou Wild Horse creek, tho past  season has witnessed increased  activity in this historic old  placer camp. Five companies  . have been operating hydraulic-  ally, and the result*, were most1  satisfactory. The creek, bed  proper has been pretty well  worked out. but the gravel  hanks on both sides of the creek,  which have a varying thickness  of 20 to -10 feel, have proved to  be fairly rich in gold. Water  was abundant and piping was  carried on all through the season  The. output of gold for. Ihe past  season is estimated from S-f),000  to 8:30,000.        c  On Perry creoi< four large  companies have been operating  by hydraulic methods and very  encouraging prospects have resulted from tlie top gravel to  bedrock" The largest and most  interesting developmenl which  has lakon place on Perry creek  this year was the completion of  Ihe 'plant of the Perry Creek  Hydraulic Mining Co. For  ihree years mo company prospected the ground and equipped  the situation with Humes, pipe  lines and monitors. These  things have required an expenditure of; 815O.000.... Roads, trails  bridges, tramways and sawmills  had to be built. All these have  been' completed and mining operation was commenced in September. The event is the beginning  of a new era. in mining on Perry  creek. For many years much  desultory mining has been" done  and considerable gold taken' out.'  Most of this was from the stir-'  faeo and by such crude means as  the.impecunious prospector and  miner had at hand. Tlie ground  to be piped away is a ridge or  lhotind some distance above the  bed of the present stream. This  ridge is the result of the filling  in   of -the   channel   of   an   old I  workeci on a largo scaie;  season's operations ...which have  dosed, have" demount rat ed that  the ground will meet the,requirements of those who have made  the  investment.  Ql  AK'17   MINI Nil.  But of mining developments  in Southeast Kootenay. all else  fades into insignificance, in comparison wilh ihe remarkable output of the big silver-lead mines.  . The total' value of the silver  and lead products of the Fort  vSteele Minin��' 'Division during  thc eight years (1S9(>-190:1) its  mines have been shipping silver-  lead ores is 84.:!P.4,104. Thc  proportion of lead during the  whole period was -s;l. 18:->.b0l> as  compared with silver 8I.210,:J01.  A further comparison may be of  interest:���The total value of the  lead produced in the whole of  Canada in l!>00-!901 was Si).000.  908, of which 82.7uG.SS4 was  produced in the Fort Sieele  Division. 81,70:5.495 in the  Slocan. (including Ainsworth)  8224.24 1 :n other.parts of British  Columbia, aud 8:B5.2SS in the  rest of the. Dominion.  Out of the total production in  Fort Steele Division of silver  and lead combined for 1000-11)01  (8:5:729.520) the value of the product of the St. Fugeno mine was  81,717.555 ��� nearly one half.  The North Star mine has paid  dividends to date aggregating  8450.000. The mine' has produced 40.000 ions of ore. which  has been shipped.  The Sullivan group of mines  has a. very large amount of ore  which may fairly be classed !,in  sight" and which, from rough  calculation, may be put down as  from- .100,000 "to 40(1.Odd tons  assaying approximately, ;i" to i  'AT),, lead, and !."> to Is o/, silver  The ore is of such a < haracier.  being chiefly metallic sulphides,  as ;1.o preclude any method of  water concentration, the only  concentration possible being by  smelting. >  THIS   PLATIIKAI)   VAI.LKV.

'Over ihree.  hundred coal and oil locations  have been made, and the annual  fee for each license 'Mo prospect  for coal or petroleum", is ��!0m  each year.  'A number of companies have  been incorporated for the pur-  pose'of developing cither cqal or  oil lands. ' 11 is 'reported that  Ihese companies will commence  operation* towards developing  their holdings.  This portion of British Columbia is well watered, has ,an unusual amount of line timber,  good agricultural laud, and in  the  The Hematite group, situated  on Iron creek, a tributary ol Bull  River has 12 claims, and is an ex.  tension on the southeast ol the  Bull River group of mines.  The Bull River iron mines cover the western slope of 'Fenwick  mountain towards Bull River  and number 20 claims and fractions,', in all about 1,200 acres.  The ore is a hard red hemafil e of  a blue color, in some plaqos  slightly schistose in character, in  other places massive. The grade  is uniform in the'percentago of  sulpher and phosphorus contents  both being b'olow the limit for  Bessemer ores. The iron values  vary between .12/, iron with 15/^  silica, and OR' ��� iron with 27/0  silica  Sufficient development has not  yet been done to eslimate ihe  quantity of ore, however, an  enormous surface showing has  been made on high grade, ore.  The course and dip of the deposits have been determined, making il.au easy mailer to Test by  drilling (he existence of the ore  with depth.  ��� A complete survey of the group  has been made, and most of the  claims crown granted. Development work will be resumed about  January 15/ A large amount, of  supplies have been taken to the  mines. A.'Ii. Fenwick will have  charge=of ihe work-.  The Hi'iMA'i'i'j'ii group of  iron  mines are smutted on the southeastern slope of   Fenwick mountain  and   extend   to   and across  [iron  creek,   a  tributary, of Bull  River, aiid consists of 12 claims,  or about 000 acres, ihrough which  three immense veins of hematite  iron ore,cuts Ihe formation.   Tho  i veins vary fron ten lo twenty-live'  'feet in width,   with a large num-  jborof  small   stringers  running  I into   the   main    veins.'    In   Iron  ! creek   are   found    large    boul-  ledge which is of a similar nature  and some 800 feel above it. In  other words it is probably almost  parallel with the cross.-cut  tunnel and with the main con  lact of t he porphyry.  The Rover ledge which crosses  the surface strike of the Estella  almost al right angles wi! 1 soon  be connected wilh Estella by the  tunnel just mentioned which now  terminates about 200 feet from  the point of intersection. This  will be ihe main working funnel  for both ledges as an upraise  will be started to meet, the upper  tunnel on the Rover which has  reached a-point vertically above  the meeting point and Ihe incline  on the ISstella at different levels.  The Rover ore is galena. 'In  view of the dilticullies of .transport il is now considered a concentrating proposition. Tho  ledge matter is two to eighteen  feet wide and will give a concentration equal to oilier mines in  thc district   ���  As soon as the Koolenay Central railway is completed to  Tracy creek-, a wagon ��� road will  be built, and an air "compressor  and drills 'installed. The property is well equipped for development work' and has abundant  water for power and concentration, with abundant timber for  all mining purposes. In' conclusion we can say that upon the  completion'of Ihe KvC. Railway,  the Estella group will be one of.  the largest producing mines in  Southeast Kootenav.  year. A large'amount of ore is  blocked out, which will be shipped, if it wii] stand the present  price of treatment under the current price of lead and, the frOV.  eminent bounty. ���  BULL RIVER PLACER MINES.

The construction of the  Kootenay central railway will  !enable Ilie owners  of  timber  in  tons.' A recent analysis resulted  |as follows: hematite iron 5-1/,,  sulphur less tha.ii two per cent,  phosphorus trace, and no interfering substance.  Another group of iron claims  are located on the divide between  Dibble and Lost creeks, and is  known as the Ironmonger group.  The deposit is about 26 feet wide,  the ore a hematite carrying some  magnetic iron.  Some, two miles easl from the  Ironmonger on Dibble creek is  the Wallinger group of tive  claims. The ore is a hematite  similar to that found in the claims  farther up the' creek.  Estella Group of Mines.

This portion of the flume has  been strongly connected to the  bulkhead on the north side of the  river. The capacity of the Jlume  will be sufficient lo accommodate  the entire water-flow of Bull  River at a normal slage.  A large amount of preparatory  mining business has been transacted at Bull River during the  past year, and a large amount of  money expender'. in development  wor.k. The property of the Bull  River company under the management of V. K. Henderson is  rapidly being gotten into shape  for systematic and extensive operations. The installation of a  sawmill has been delayed, but  the mill is expected to reach Fort  Steele sometime in January. A  large amount of timber has been  cut which will be sawed into  lumber for the construction of  the flume, which will have a  length of 10,000 feet.

In this district, are located 30  suwmiHs, which were in active  operation early in 1H04. Tlie  present condition of the lumber  industry is not encouraging.  The lumber market of Manitoba  and th<.' Northwest, having been  Hooded by cheap American  lurn-  , be.r. has been very discouraging  to Ihe lumber trade of Soulheast  Kootenay. The lumbermen of  British Columbia are emphatic  in their demand for a protective  t a rill". The Americans sell lumber where they can find a market  defy  competition   in tlieir home  ' market, and undersell British  Columbia lumber producers.

Here are  "to be found till the elements required to constitute, a rich and  progressive district, consisting  of rich agricultural soil," magni-  ������fleent herbage for cattle,, horses  and sheep, a .salubrious climate,  favorable to health, and fruit  growing, together with bound;  less forests of timber. Throughout the valley are scattered  many ranches and farms.�� aud  during the past year considerable attention has,been' given,to  the cultivation of cereals.  The nutritious grasses of the  foot-hills, on both sides of the  river afford ample food supply  for horses, cattle and sheep,  with abundance of good water,  a slight snow-fall and moderate  climate make tliis an ��� ideal  country for stock raising.  Considerable attention ' is now  given to fruit-growing. At  Wasa., Tracy'creek,' Fish Lakes  and the vicinity of Fort Steele  there are 4a number of small  orchards which are' doing well.  It is estimated that > several  thousand fruit, trees, which have  been ordered for delivery this  fall and next spring, will be set  out next season. Small fruits  such .as currants, strawberries  raspberries and gooseberries  do wclr^Tuid are extremely luscious. Thc local market ts large  and will steadily develop, owing  to tho rapid development of the  mining industry, and increase of  railway communication by the  construction of the Kootenay  Central Railway.
