Over  two   thousand   locations  . have been recorded on  the  east  .side of the  Kootenay   valley  in  the vicinity of Fort Steele,   and  ;i. large percentage of honest development work has been  done.  Many   companies  slrong  tinu.11-  cially, have beer, reconuoilenng.  a.ud a. steady advance is reported  a.lI over this portion of  the   district, which is directly tributary  lo, the   town   of   Fort     Steele.  There tire   already   some   very  fine mines, such as the Big Chief,  ���     Dupont, Es,tella, Dibble, Burton,  Keystone, Golden Fleece. Minnie  M.,Johu L., Montana, Kootenay  King,    Chickamon , Stone.    Old  Abe, li.ilcl Mountain, John Bull,  Colossal, Golden Five and many  others are being daily added . to  lhe list.

Cherry creek enters   into   the  Kootenay    river     above     Fort  Steele.   On  Cherry,  creek   eon-  'siderable prospecting   has   been  done,   and  'the  .reports    which  come from there are  of 'w most  ,   .satisfactory character  ,   Considerable assessmenfwork has been  clone.   TJie principal ore abounding in this section is copper, although other minerals are mentioned as having been found.  The  mines  in' the  immediate  vicinity of Fort Steele, are, for  tlie , most    part   easily   reached;  '   there   is   not   a    mine    within  twenty-live   miles  of   the,  town  ' that cannot'be  reached' in   less  '   than a d;iy.   "This'.section  is  an  ' ideal one fornuining, and  those  ���who   have   visited the country  say that they have never been  in a country so  advantageously  situated for economical   mining.  jcpKr'aTEisus.  The  time    has    now    arrived  when we can see .that  the  pros-  -peritv of Fort Steele as a min-  ' ing "center , is  an ��� assured  fact.  The  lar<!e   mineral   district   in  close proximity to  Steele,   comprising," Wild Horse creek, Maus,  Four-Mile: Six-Mile, Tracy.}Vo\f,  "Wasa. Lewis.  Cherry, Skookum  Chuck,   and" Lost   creeks,   and  Horseshoe canyon. Bull river and  Sand creek are all   tributary   to  the.town of Fort Steele.   . The  inines in this vicinity are  being-  developed rapidly,   new  discoveries are being made,  and  most  of the claims  are  very  conveniently situated in close  proximity to'the various  roads leading  up and  to1 these  several   points  from Fort Steele.    The now preliminary survey of the C.   P.   B,  is in direct touch with this  vast  mineral empire.  HKADCJlWIlTKliS .       OV    -   MIMNf!

WIT-P  HOKSK  CKKKIC    ������  The Wild Horse creek and  Bouldercreek'mines- promise to  bring back thesiirring scenes of  the days, of thirty years ago.  The activity in that region is  greater than at any time for, 2.">  years at least, and promises to  be still greater as the season  progresses.   ,  The Big,Chief, Dupont group,  Golden Fjve, .Dardanelles, Kootenay King. Bald Mountain and  other inines are working a number of men.', This means a substantial payroll for that section.  The Bill Nye is opening up  finely. The tunnel "is now in-  over seventy feet, showing" grey  copper and galena.  <The Emerald group is an ex��-  tension of the Big Cliief on the  north, and the ore is of the same  quality as that on the Big Chief.  One tunnel is in 4."> feet. It is  expected that work,,will be resumed in a few days.'  The Dardanelles has over four  hundred feet of tunnels and  drifts, with'an upraise of'fifty  feet., It is the intention of the  owners to develop the property  as rapidly as possible.  The1 Brittle Silver group is  situated on the divide between  Wild Horse and Sheep creeks.  Recently some of the finest ore  seen in this section was taken  from this property. A number  oi" men are'engaged in develop:  ing the property.  >   BOULDKK  CKKKK.  , Wild Horse creek and its,tributaries in the immediate vicinity of Fort Steele has been the  scene of great activity during  the past year. A vast ' amount  of work has been done, and in  several instances continued during the entire year. The work  now going o'n is of such a char-'  acter as to induce the belief that  this years work will show up  producing mines which' will add  greatly to the'fame' of the district."  It was on Wild Horse that the  discoveries of gold were made  in the early GO's, and'every year  since a.greater or less, amount  has  been   taken   from    the   old  -1 BouM  !  widil  a  Fort Steele is the headquarters  .   .for  a.   largo   number  of   strong  111 in ing     corporations,      among  which may mentioned,  lhe   East.

" Thisis.qn  recount of its. being  nearest  to  -.the  scene of    mining   activity.  .Fort Steele being the  center of  the.district, has over seventy per  Acent of the mining corporations  and;syndicates, who have  their  Jocal headqtiartors.at Steele.  Inside   of. three, years    the  Kootenay valley will be one of the  ground, and even now extensive  placer work is being done by Lhe  old methods and by extensive  hydraulic machinery. Working  placers, however, has given  place to quartz mining, and now  the mountains overlooking the  old p'ueor ground is literally  covered with mining locations,  many of them known to be of  great value.  The Big Chief mine on Boulder creek is one of the properties  that a large amount has been expended in developing. ATr immense vein :2iS foot in width traverses the ground over three entire claims. Development work  consists of over three hundred  -feet of tunnels and drifts.  The Dupont group is another  free gold proposition, and is situated on the : east side of ' the  creek directly opposite the -Big-  Chief. The .development' work,  consists of a'tunnel, nearly two  hmidred feet in length, and a  crosscut .of 22 feet. The lead  upon which work is now being  done is 15 feet in width.  The 'Rescue is. situated, .up-the  creek and east of the Big Chief.  The.-Midas is  the Dupoiif  on  an   extension  of  the  south, east.  On the property is a, strong lead  eight .feet   in    width,    carrying  good values in gold.

The property of-the Bull River  Mining Company is .situated on  Quartz creek. who.M* waters  empty into Bull river, and are  about fourteen miles from Fort  Steele. The work- so far has  been preliminary, but the owners are now developing the property as fast, 'as possible. The,  group consists of ten claims, and  there are eight distinct leads  traversing the property.  The Chickamon Stone, Old  Abe. Tontine, Griffith property  and a number of other promising claims are beim; developed.  The,Molly Buw.i, Cuckoo and  Twilight, are, promising claims  located on the east side of Bull  river, and only separated from  the Chickamon Stone by the  Windsor, fraction.  SIX-MILE  (JKEEK.  The Try-Again claim on Six-  Mile creek is a very promising  claim. Development work consists of a tunnel now in some  fifty feeteshowing copper pyrites  in the face'. Assays give a value  of 4.(b ounces in silver, Sli'0.00  in gold and 22-'iO per cent copper. V ��>  TKACV, CREEK.  A Vast amount of development  work has been mapped out by  the mine owners in this section.  The ,Estella, one , of the' best  known properties in the vicinity  of Fort Steele, has, a- considerable force at work developing  the property.   .  The Montana. Tiger, 'Minnie  M... John L., Golden Fleece, St.  Lawrence, Swan and a number  of others are being developed/  SAND  CliEEK. _ _    '  On Sand creek ,there are a  number of excellent properties  deserving of more than passing  mention.- 'Anions: them is the  Empire, Blue Grouse, 'Burton,  Wynstay,vEl Morro. and many  others. ' There has been a large  amount of work, done on these  claims, and this district will con-,  tin tie to attract attention.  "      tSADOKE  CAN'YOX.  In Isadore canyon, about six  miles- from Fort Steele, there  are a number,of promising properties. Several of them have  been quite extensively developed, and others will be thoroughly prospected during the present  year.  SKOOICUM  CHUCK.      u  A considerable number of locations have been made on the  Skookum Chuck during the past  two years which have attracted  attention to that section. Several tine prospects have been un��  covered, and the ore is of such a  character as to cause mining  men to visit that section aud make  locations. The ore is a. high-  grade copper. Considerable development is now going on. and  there is no doubt that this section o ft he Fort Steele ' district  will come more prominently before the public.  LOST  C1JEKK.  On Lost, creek there are a  number of locations of merit.  Some of the ore taken from  many of the locations is peacock  copper, carrying high values in  gold, silver and copper. ' . There  is at present considerable work  being doue, and . it, .would, seem  that the showings .would warrant  more extensive' development.  However there is no question  but that 11.ll the claims' in ' this  vicinity will be exploited this  summer. .   ,  Q"  ; * During the last two m  velopment   of  the   district  aro^  Star   and   Sullivan:   mines and. th  ary   discoveries   made ^^  welfare of three oi* four towns.

During the ]>a.st year  a iiiimbor, of deals " involving  large amounts of ntoney have  been eonsiimafecl. and there has  been more activity in mining development, than ever before, and  , during the present year a vast  amount of work will be'-- done,  and the Port Sioelc district will  receive the recognition it deserves.
