A shaft under the creek • level is reported to be ISO t'eei deep, but it is now partly tilled with water, A tunnel 30 feet below the collar of the shaft explores the vein for 100 feet to the east. The vein is about one foot wiide in the tunnel but is re ported to be six feet wide in the but tom of the shaft, it is contained in banded blue slates and quartzites of tlie Prichard formation. The ore is principally chalcopyrite, pyrite, and galena in a quartz gangue with sparse siderite. A specimen from this pros peet shows an interesting relation be -tween chalcopyrite, sphalerite and ga lena. The chalcopyrite is in two bands at opposite ends of the specimen. It is .very fine grained and greatly shear ed, being traversed near its borders by veinlets of galena and a little spha.1 erite. Sphalerite us medium-grained nodules an inch or more in diameter ooours between the bands of chal copyrite bu.pt is mostly inclosed by galena of aoarser texture /which shows no evidence of shearing. /From these relations in this speeiment it Is believ ed that the chaiicoprite was deposited first and sphalerite and galena later. In another specimen, however, galena and chalcopyrite appear to be con temporaneous .with vein quartz, a re lation which indicates recurrent de position of the minerals In -the vein.

Mining a Milling T. 48 N., ft. 1 E., by purchase from tlie Nor- j company, acquired section 13, The Hypotheek t.iern Pacific Railway the mine is in the NHV* of tlie section | near the iiead of French company, anti gulch. A | uvagon road through French gulch connects the property with Kingston, 3 miles to the north. The mine is one of the old properties of tlie district and has been worked intermittently since 1887, but no Information us to its production prior to 1916 was available, During tlie period from June, 1916, when the mill began to operate, to December 20, 1916, the Hypotheek mine produced 1,173,860 pounds of dead, 7,096.64 ounces of silver and 122.68 ounces of gold, the total value of which was about $90,ouu. This output was made from an ore shoot recently discovered in the vein west of a fault which displaced it about 75 feet to the south on the hanging wall side. The old /workings, now aban doned, are on tlie west side of French gulch, east of the fault. T(iey con sist of an adit tunnel in which, 600 feet from the portal, a vertical shaft of 700 feet was sunk with drifts of several hundred feet -on the 500 and 700-foot levels. Connection is made from the 700-foot level of the old workings with the 700-foot level of the neiw workings. An old concen trator stands in French gulch, 400 feet •from the portal of the tunnel, The new workings are at the head of a gulch, tributary to French gulch, 1500 feet west of the portal of the old tunnel. This work was begun In 1913 and consisted in the sinking of an 1100-foot shaft with drifts aggregat ing about 2500 feet on the 700, 900 and 1100-foot levels. A barometric read ing at the collar of the shaft gave an altitude of 2700 feet. The hoist house, /compressor building and mill are closely grouped about the collar of the shaft. Electric power is obtained from the Washington Water Power quartzites with a bed of massive white gray quartzite 50 feet or more member of the Prichard.

Mas sive grayish quartzites are in some places on the hanging .wall and in other places on the foot wall of the vein. The vein strikes N. 70 degrees W. and dips about 70 degrees S. that strikes N. 40 degrees W. and dips steeply to the southwest offsets the vein about 50 feet to the south on the hanging Wall side. This fault marks the division of the mine into the old and new workings, markedly on the two sides of the fault both in the mineralogy of the vein and in the depth of oxidation. East of the fault the vein was examined on the 700-foot level only, where connection the old and new | is made between ^workings, 'erage width of severhl feet. plnees It Is a network of veinlets In slate: in others it is a solid vein com poses! of quartz and carbonates, cite Is abundant In places, phides have a sporadic and small de velopment In the vein, small stope on this level, and small bunches of ore are said to have been stoped above the 700-foot level, that part of the mine was not exam The ore at the stope on the lned. 700-foot level Is composed of chal eopyrite, tetrahedrite. pyrile and ar senopyrite In a gangue of quartz, cal olto and siderite.

A smaller vein was cut 'about 75 feet from the shaft, and drifts have been run on it to the east land Iwest for 500 feet. The small vein is parallel to the larger one in strike inches to 2 feet wide, .but dips 50 degrees B. It is from 8 West from the crosscut ore occurs probably in com mercial quantity for it distance of 100 feet. It consists of bunches of galena, pyrite, chalcopyrite and tetrahedrite in a gangue of quartz, calcite and sider ite. Seams of well crystallized tetra hedrite occur in the ore near the west end of the drift. The tetrahedrite is clearly younger than the vein quartz, but nowhere was its relation to chal copyrite or galena clearly shown. In the main vein on the 1100-foot level, east of the crosscut, the ore occurs In shoots separated by barren vein mat ter. Some of the shoots are 75 feet long. The oxidized parts of the vein are coextensive with the shoots of lead ore. At the west end of the drift chalcopyrite, galena, and tetrahedrite occur in the quartz and carbonate gangue, but the distribution of these minerals is too scattered for profitable mining. In the east end of the drift calcite is' very abundant in the vein. The ore shoot on the 900-foot level contains about 9 per cent of lead. Shipments of crude ore contain an average of 75.4 per cent of lead, with 8.38 ounces of silver and 0.018 ounce of gold to the ton. About 3 or 4 tons of crude ore is sorted by hand each day. The concentrates consist principally of eerusite, galena and some tetrahe drite and chalcopyrite. Smelter re turns of the concentrates gave an av erage of -50.65 per cent of lead, with 6.23 ounces of silver and 0.125 ounce of gold to the ton. The crude ore and concentrates are smelted in the smelt er at 'Northport, Wash., where the ore Is desired because of its predom inant carbonate. The mill has a rated dally capacity of 180 tons, but at the time of visit between 70 and 80 tons a day was be ing treated. The equipment consists of Jigs, tables and vanners, which make a saving of 70 per cent of the lead content of the ore. The Hypotheek vein is unique among the veins of the Pine creek dis trict in the association of the sulphide and gangue minerals. The abundance of galena in some parts of the vein and the association of chalcopyrite, tetrahedrite, arsenopyrite and galena in other parts are noteworthy feat ures. Sphalerite and pyrrhotite, which are common in many of the veins of the district, were not observ ed in the Hypotheek ores. Tetrahe drite, w r hich generally carries a high silver content ln ores of the Coeur d'Alene district, Is barren of this met al in the Hypotheek /mine. A partial analysis of the mineral by R. C. Wells of the geological survey gave 36.5 per cent of copper, no silver and about 21 per cent of antimony. The silver of the ores is therefore probably contain ed in galena and the gold is probably contained In chalcopyrite. Big Eight. The Big Eight tunnel Is In the NE>4 sec. 8, IT. 48 N„ R. E E., on 'the west side of Little Pine creek. The /work ings aggregate about 2100 feet ard consist mainly of a tunnel whose course Is S. 50 degrees W., with short drifts on two small veins intersected by the tunnel. Thinly banded gray, blue and black shales and quartzites of the Prichard formation are the rocks of the tunnel section. The for mation strikes from north to N. 30 de grees W. and dips 500-80 degrees E. A Vein intersected by the tunnel 500 fppt from the portal Is about one foot 'wide.
