OIL AREAS OF THE FLATHEAD  Excerpt from Report, of Minister  of Mines���Oil Spring oif Sage  Creek,  The so-called "Big Oil Spring'"  ,on   Sage  creek occurs .some   12  miles   from    the   mouth   of the  creek  and   about a.  mile  above  where    the   stream   leaves   llio  mountains and enters the Hal depression of the Fla'.head   valley.  The-rocks  of  the district were  certainly not oil-producing,   and  so gave no indications as to  tho  probable locality of Ihe seepage,  and   oil   was  only located, after  some time, by the odour.     The  spring w*as found in   the brush,  about  a,  quarter of a mile from  the   trail,   at   the   base   of the  mountain   to   the   north  of  the  valley and near a'small lake and  marsh, which lie at ah elevation  of some 200 feet above the stream  and   4,400   feef. above  the  sea.  The  ground to the north of this  lake   is   marshy    and '' lull    of  springs  of   water   which go to  form the lake.    About 100 yards  from tlfe base of the' mountains,  on a knoll higher than its imme-  diafo'surrquiidings, there is issuing a good sized spring of water,  aiid   beside,  this   spring    were  found several pools cd'vored with  thick, dark-green pi 1. ' The  oil,  .being,.lighter   than   the .water,  accumulated nearest the highest  pom!���, the water flowing oil'  below.     The oil had accumulated  hero   in   several    pools    wtiich  covered an area, of some  50 "feet  diameter, bul, as far as could, be  .determined, actually rose within  a nfdius of 0 or  8  feet,   tho   remaining pools benig  formed  by  overflows. "As the oil spreads itself out oyer the face of the water  all these vpools have the appearance of being entirely oil, but an  .attempt, to  skim lit 'off soon revealed  the fact that it could: not  be  collected   by this means, but  only by laying a cloth on the top  of  the pool  and allowing  it.to  soak 'up   the   surface   oil   and  water,   thc   cloth ' being    then  rung  out  into a tin, from which  tho water was syphoned off from  the supernatant oil.    Samples of  tho  oil  were  thus obtained and  brought'down for analysis.     In  appearance   it   is' lighter   than  the  crude loil  of Pennsylvania,  probably  containing  less   tarry  matter and  being richer in thc  more volatile constituents.  Tho oil rises through black  marsh earth covered with charcoal, etc , resulting from thc  frequent ignition of the oil-  soaked vegetable matter on thc  surface, and it is difficult to tell  how much ot its color it owos��lo  this source. The "spring" can  only be described as an oil .seepage; there is no How and the  quantity of oil therefrom is very  small, probably not more than a  couple of gallons a day. '  The How.of oil here reported  is exactly as.it was observed in  the last1 week of August, 1903.  Conversafions had subsequently  with prospectors of undoubted  reliability, would indicate . that  the amount of oil issuing varies  with the season and with different seasons, probably being influenced by the (low of water in  the springs, the water seeming  to bring the oil with it. As far  as could be noted, there are no  warm springs in the district, all  Con I.i n uud on l.'a^o ���'���.  B. O. Soul horn Railway. Of  these latter locations, important  and probable valuable deposits  "have "been "developed "on "the  North Pork- of Michel creek, and  on the Upper I'.llc river and its  tributary Fording River. The  development has progressed so  far as to prove thafbeds of good  workable coal, which have yet  fo be proven as io extent and the  many oilier features1 which are  essentia! to llie commercial ���production of this commodity.1  SULLIVAN  MINE.

Dated Port Steele May 1st, 1001      20  Continued from Page 1.  being very cold and very clear,  having no mineral'taste or smell  The oil rises with' the water,  as already said, on a knoll. It  is not a question of seepage out  of any '.surface material, but of a  spring coming ,up from the  foundation underlying the surface deposit and carrying oil.  Thg immediate locality is surrounded on the surface by gravel  wash, and if lateral How.-existed  it would be to the lowest level,  which is the .crock bod.  The place at which the oil is  found is at the top of an anticlinal in the formation, that-is lo  say, at,the highest point in the  bedding of the rocks, the axis of  the anticlinal crossing the creek  in'a'N.W direction. From this  point ilic beds dip up the 'creek  to the N.E., and.also down the  creek, ���to the S.W. The beds  can be 1 raced dipping lo tho N.  E. for about'three miles, at first  at a very flat angle, but gradually increasing until the' dip  reaches about 35 degrees.,' At  this point a fault occurs with, to  the east, a different dip to the  rocks, while further up the  creek, this is followed by other  faults, hence it may be said that  throe miles above the '���spring"  is the limit in, that direction of  this possible Hold of accumulation.  To\h'c S.W., that is,   towards  thc  valley , of the Flathead, the  beds  dip  at  a  very   flat angle,  probably  not exceeding  10  degrees, and apparently  flattening  out as  they  are  lost   to   sight  under   the  gravel   and   surface  wash of the llathead depression.  Ln   this  depression  no   signs of  solid formation can be seen, with  the exception,   possibly,   of  two  or three places in tho bottom   of  the river (and those being covered with water could  not  be  examined),   where   there  seems to  bo a bed of 3*ello\vish clay   shale  lying flat, and which appears7 to  be "in  place"  as a primary deposit.   . ���'; .  c   On Kish-e-neh-na creek,   at a  point  where  oil  is  reported, a  similar   anticlinal   fold    occurs,  but with the.axis running nearly  N.E.    and ."'S.W.,'  or   with    the  course of, the creel*,   tho   beds  dipping off at an angle to the N.  W.   and   S.E.   into  the adjacent  mountains. '  In neither of those ahtielinals  is there any evidence of a break,  and it is quite possible tliat below the faults referred to the  overlying beds arc .unbroken' and  continuous to the S. W.''over' the  barrier of overlying rock forma  tion, and'if such rock should   be  in the form of an inverted   basin  (an antichinal) it would thus -retain the oil.  As to whether oil in quantity  exists under this inverted basin  of rock, there is little data upon  which to base an opinion. Oil  has been found, however, over a  considerable area of country, as  it exceeds at the two creeks  mentioned and. to the S.E., some  12 miles more or less, at Kintla  Lake, in Montana, while on the  same line of strike it has been  found in small quantities. In  Montana boring has been done  to a considerable extent, it is reported to depths' of 1,200 feet  without finding oil.  Whether there is oil in quantity  to be obtained by boring, there  is little evidence; tho seepage at  present is trifling, but the geological structure seems suitable  for the retention of oil if produced in quantity. If it does so  exist it must in all probability-  bo at a very considerable depth,  possibly over 8000 foot. ,  , In conclusion, I would report;  the actual scoping of oil in three  or more-places; that the exist-,,  onco of a body of oil underground is quite possible, though,  exceedingly problematic: that if  such body of oil does occur it  can only bo demonstrated by  boring in all probability to a)  considerable depth and at a considerable cost. ,  Tho objects foi wliicli IlieCombany li:i<< liei-n  eslnblisliuil me:���  ���  (a.)
