A large number of ii;on and  copper properties have been located near Fort Steele during  the past, three months.  The large amount of development work already performed in  the mines in this district, is most  encouraging.  Lumber dealers in South East  Kootenay report their fall pros  peels as particularly good.  The importance of the mining  industry of the Fort Steele district is now recognized.

Mr. Caldwell says  that they located two claims on  a largo - body of iron in the  vicinity of Dibble creek. The  iron bed has boon uncovered for  a distance of 20 feet. The ore a  dark steel-gray color, and is  a melallic hematite. The ore  body can bo traced for nearly  3,000 feet.  Prospectors localed at Fort.  Steele are searching the moun  tains, locating many large bodies  of iron, which have boon passed  by when searching lor other  metals.  IOWA.  Mr. Powi-11 who has boon engaged in running a. tunnel on  the Iowa was in town' on Monday. And says that, tho tunnel  is now in eighteen feel, following the footwall, with a full  bieast of ore in the face. Tho  ore is a galena, a, concentrating  ore.    The ledge has a   width   of  Munroe   mountain. tf There  are  throe    leads   that traverse   the  group,   one is from forty to fifty  feet ,in  width,   I am  unable to  state the 'width "of  the'others,'  though they are large.

You may'  5rU,y thai, the people that are now  engaged-in spreading this report  'are talking through  their  hat'.  Sevcral'ycars ago, a man"named  Boyer discovered a small vein of  grey copper on one of the claims  located on Bull river.    He  sunk  a  shaft some   50 or  60 feet, at  convenient means of transportation, build smelting and refining works-in the district, our  mines will be developed, and the  largest arid richest mineral areas  on the American continent' will  be in South East Kootenay.

It is  said , that owing to financial  reasons, the close proximity to  the mine, good water power, etc.  that the directors of the Sullivan  Mining Company have come to  the conclusion that, all things  being considered, that Marysville was the best location for  the proposed smelter.  The construction of a smelter  at Marysville or any other point  in the district cannot fail to be  beneficial to all engaged in  mining.  Kimberley Notes.
