This proporty, which is situated on Nigger Creek, is considered one of the most valuable
placer grounds in the district.
Lust yeur tlie ground was prospected to a great extent and rich
gravel was found that justified
the forming of a company, which
is known as the Moyio Placer
Miniug Co., Ltd. The capital
stock of the company is $100,-

were sold for 12 cents and the
money received wus used in prospecting lhe ground. A block of
25,000 shnres has been sold ul 85
cenls, which will be used to
equip the mine with machinery
necessary for hydraulic mining.
Quartz mining, also, will be
pushed us rapidly as possible.
The Coronado, Dodo, Cornucopia, Bald Mountain, Dardenelles,

Work is being pushed rapidly
on the Little Horn, owned by
Grundy Aarkes, Thoy have uncovered a largo ledgo of high-
grado oro, principally carrying
gold and copper.
F. II. Shoppard, bookkeeper of
tho Aini'i'icaii store of Fori

The bridge at the South Fork
is rapidly being completed and
will soon be ready for laying the

highest on the line, being MO
[eel above the river. Over two-
thirds of il is completed.
Tlie tote road is ill excellent

are engaged In hauling supplies
all along the lino.
The new lown al Coal Creek
will be called "Pernio," named
afler Mr. William Pernio, tho
discoverer of coal in Ihe I'nss.
Work al lho mines is rapidly
progressing. About 2i> men are
ni work gelling tho tunnels and
approaches ready for track* laying, Thu company will pui in u
lui'go electric plant, llghl tho
nm, by electricity, tako tho coal
from the mine and run the drills
and oilier machinery by that
power. Fifty large coko ovens
will also bo constructed. This)
.would give an output of "'1 tons1
'• of coke per day. The company
are working three shifts of eight
hours each, and it is reported
that an additional force will bo
employed at an early day.
Tho opening up of these coul
tields will givo prosperity to both
East and West Kooleuay. East
Kootenay, and more particularly
ibis district, will derive the most
benefit, ii will assist in tho
opening of our mines: il will
cause tho erection of Sllloltoi'S ill

market for ores mined in Southern Kootonay.
Willi llie completion of the
Crow's Nest Railway, combined
With lhe opening np of lhis immense area of coal, tho Fori
