Extensive Preparations Now Being Made For Working Placer  1   Mines This  Season.  During; the past. 40 years placer mining in the ' Port, Steele  Mining District has been centered on Wild Horse creek, and il  may interest many of the readers  of The Puospectou by a brief  description of the placer workings, now being carried on, on  the historic old creek.    , -  The' placer camps of Wild  Horse are* situated four, miles  from the town of Port Steele,  and can be reached ' by an easy  trail, or wagon road.  The Invicta Gold Mines, Ltd..  is the title of the English company which control about a mile  , anda quarter of hill-diggings on  the north west side of the creek,  also extensive claims on the  south east side.  The gravel has been thoroughly    prospected. .    And develop,.  linents,    which   have   continued  '"'since the early sixties show very  ^satisfactory   results,   and   Wild  Horse creek ��� has earned for itself a place among   the   richest  gold   mining   camps   of British  Columbia.  WATER  SUPPLY.  The.supply of water, for hydraulic   operations    is    derived  ,; from the north and east forks of  Wild Horse creek, "and is augmented by the flow from Boulder  creek,   a  .tributary  of   the  . main creek.  ���  There*   are    three   excellent  ditches on  the  property ..of the  i Invicta company,   the   Victoria,  ' the .largest ditch,, carries   3,500  inches of water, and is five miles  , long. At the intake of' this  ditch is a dam sixty feet high.  The site of the dam is peculiarly ideal. Il is located at the low-  eivend of an extremely narrow  canyon, the walls of which are  solid rock and rise to a height of  about 100 feet, and are not more  than 30 feet .apart. Immediately above the dam the canyon expands into a basin like lake. The  dam is'GO feet high, built of masonry' "\and logs, and the structure is very strong, having withstood the extreme high-waters  since -, 18%. the time of its construction.  '   THE  GRAVEL.  The gravel consists of about  60 feet of loose gravel, 150 feet of  red gravel, aud -10 feet of a blue  cement, all of \vhich contain gold  iii paying quantities. Under  these and laying on thc bedrock  (which is chloritic slate)is a body  of yeljow river washed gravel,  which bears evidence of being  much water-worn, and now occupies what is known as tho old  channel.  PIPE    LINE.  Upon this property there has  been a great deal of improvement during the past few years.  An entire new line of heavy  steel pipe, twenty inches in diameter, with 15 inch branches to  the giants, have been laid from  the big ditch, which give a pressure of 500 feet, which i.s ample  force for cutting the blue cement  and gives the most satisfactory  results. ,  A. line of hew pipe has also  been laid from the China ditch,  which has a working pressure of  250 feet.  The calculated, velocity of  water in the 20.inch pipe, under  500 feet head, is.1.10 ft, per second.1. At this velocity deli vers  close to 1,000,000 gals., of water  per day.  Four six-inch giants are used  in  directing  the water, iind cut  ting down   the  immense  gravel  banks.  fSROCNU IS LE\SEL).  At. fhe present time tiie'ground  is leased lo a Chinese company,  who are now engaged in making  extensive preparations for operating during'the coming season.  152,000 feet of lumber hits been  contracted for, and will be used  in repairing old flumes and building-new ones. Large quantities  of logs have been cnt which will  be used as riflles in the old and  new flumes.  THE  OUTPUT.  The gold fouiid on Wild Horse  creek is coarse, and nuggets of  ��10 to %20 are common. The  largest piece taken out last year  was valued at ��90.  The placer diggings on Wild  Horse creek was' discovered in  1804,,and have been worked incessantly since that time by  Whites and Chinese, and altogether it i.s estimated that ��20,-  000,000 in gold, has been the result of this vast amount of labor.  There still remains an immense  amount' of gravel unwashed,  which will take years of hard  work to exhaust. The mining  season is a long one, it generally  opens in March, and work can'be  carried on untij the last of November.  The estimated value of gold  taken out in 1903 was ��.5,000.  ���But. during the coining season,  and taking into consideration the  large amount of preparatory  work now going on, it is hoped  that 1904 will'prove an exception, and the output of the' yellow metal increased to not less  than ��50.000.     ' "       ,?,    ���'  NIP   AND  TUCK   PLACERS. ,      '  The Nip and Tuck, located on  the south east side of'the creek,  owned by D. Griffith, has also  been leased to a Chinese company. A large amount of preparatory work is being done. New  pipe lines' aro being laid, and  Humes constructed, in fact the  whole workings are being reconstructed at a great expenditure  of time and labor which takes  money to accomplish. This Company will operate two giants during the coming season.  A Chinese company will work  on the hillside just above the Nip  and Tuck.' They are also making the necessary preparations  before starting to pipe, and will  be in excellant condition by the  time the season opens.  Several Chinese outlits will  work the channel of Wild Horse  creek, some have,wing dams, and  another outfit will flume the  creek near the mouth of Brew  cry creek and are likely to do  well as this "ground has never  beeu worked and is too narrow  to wing dam.  On the Doro ground, John P.  Larson and partners aro engaged m running a drift in search of  an old channel. As a considerable amount of water is llowing  through the drift it i.s  thought that they may be right  in their supposition of the existence of an old channel. The  gravel now being taken out of  the drift will be washed as soon  as Ihe season will permit.  ALL   OVER   THE    DISTRICT.  . We learn that a number of applications have been made for  the leasing of placer ground in  various parts of the Port Steele,  District.  It'has.been known for -many  years 1 hat, good pay'could be  found on the bars in many of the  large rivers and streams in the  district, with wafer available- in  sufficient quantity for extensive  working.  ,, On    Bull   river,    this   year,  a  modern hydraulic plant  will   be  installed.  At Perry creek, not less than  five large companies ' will be in  active operation,  Pinley creek and Skookum  Chuck will also_ receive considerable attention from placer  miners.  it will require a large amount  of capital to accomplish the different placer undertakings, and  to do i1 successfully, in , many  instances, waler will be brought  many miles.- by 'ditches and  flumes to the diggings; but with  iiiproved mining 'machinery,  these bars and creeks will produce a large amount of the yellow metal, and become paying-  investments to those interested.  RAILROAD   DEVELOPMENT.  will be in active  operation   next  month. ,        '  Applications have been made  to the Provincial government  for four-, placer mining leases  near the continence of Nigger  creek and Moyie river.-  D. Griffith has applied lo the  B. C. government for 300 inches  of water to be taken from ' Wild  Horse creek, to be used in operating the Fisher placer mine.  .Application,has been made to  the government for two placer  leases on ' Perry creek. The  leases will each cover an area of  one-half mile by 400,feet.     #i    ���  As regards gravel mining in  South , East Kootenav there is  much,renewal of activitv.  The launching of the battleship  Virginia, which wa.s originally  scheduled (o take place tomorrow at Newport News, has  been postponed ' on request of  the .builders until early nexl  month, when it will be' christened by the daughter of Governor  Montague of Virginia. The Virginia is the iirst of the large  battleships under construction  to bo made ready for launching.  LUMBER INDUSTRY.  Kettle Valley "and Kootenay Central'Railway Construction.  Grand Porks. March 4.���It is  stated'on good authority that the  Kettle Valley railway company  has ordered their surveyors,,Id  make immediate preparations to  complete a survey of the proposed north fork" branch, which  will commence .at this city and  terminate at the well, known  FYanklin camp, 50 miles' up vthe  north'fork of the Kettle river.'  A special, from Victoria received at Steele on Wednesday  says': "That the survey of the  Kootenay central will be resumed  and that preparations are being-  made for cutting the'right of  way through from Elko north." ���  lt is pretty well understood  that Mr. Pollen- has received tlie  assurance from, the Provincial  government, that tho promised  aid will be granted at the coming summer session of the Provincial legislature.  With the Dominion grant of  ��3,200 a mile, and further aidL  promised by the Provincial government, there is no reason why  the work of actual construction  should not be started ,.as soon as  the frost is out of tho ground. c  Mining Notes.  The mineral products of British Columbia in the half century  from 1852, to the close of 1902  amounted in value to ��189,720,538  The chief item iu the total is  gold aggregating ��04,027,003.  The imports of 'mining .machinery into Canada during 1903  amounted to ��1,206.185, the most  of which came from the United  States. K  About ��80,000 is due thc mine  owners to date under the load  bounty.  The first installment of cash to  pay tho lead bounty, it- is reported, has started from Ottawa.  The only mine in Southeast  Kootenay to be benefitted by the  lead bounty, is the North Star.  A bill has been drafted to incorporate the Provincial Mining  Association under the Provincial  Act, and if the convention approve of the idea the bill will be  carried through tho legislature  in tho usual manner.  Tlie Port Steele mining district is being noised throughout  the Province, and the echoes  from statements regarding it  which have been sent out are  favorable.  Last week' th(> Rossland mines,  had an output of 9,590 tons.  The Boundary mines shipped  last week 17,00-1 tons of pre.  Placer mining., in Southeast  Kootenay is a most Mattering attraction to the district, these  days.  If anticipated arrangements  are realized the St. Eugene mine  Logging Operations Active During  ���;'   '      the Past Winter.  , Lumbering operations in  Southeast   Kootenav   have been  i *'  very active during Ihe winter,  months..  The rise and progress,of the  lumber industry of the district,  was one of the leading features  of thc year 1903, and for the  .current year the industry, prom-'  ises to make a much better show-  The Crow's Nest,Lumber Co.  have established a camp on St.  Mary's river,' and during' the  past three months have cut over  3,000,000 feet of logs. .In, addition they" are' purchasing from  ranchers'another 1,000,000 feet  at least.     ,   ��� '      ������  , <���  ���, According to the British' Columbia Gazette'there were 1173  applications made" for timber  licenses' during the year 1903J  of this number' over 50%,of the.  applications'were made for lumber in Southeast Kootenay.  In this district there is a total  of 29 mills in active operation. '  There are sufficient reasons to  assume that ihe output of lumber for Southeast Kootenay will  be increased this year by at least  50 per cent over that of last year  ',  Among the Craft..
