W'ork on the various properties is pro
gressing fayorably, with nothing new to
report. At Flint, Rich Gulch and the
mine of the Silver City Company, every
advantage is being taken of the grand
weather we are now enjoying. The I
other locations are all more or less act
ive, with optimism rampant.
The mill run has been finished and
clean-up is in progress at the Banner.
Fine ore is being taken out of the 200 ,
level. Mr. Steele expects to have anoth

Big Sugar Loaf
$714.32 was the amount that the three
claims of the Big Sugar Loaf Mining Co.
bought at sheriff's sale last week. They
were bought in for tiiat amount by At

This dissolves the company and the
property reverts to the principal owner.

Boulder has many natural advantages
that should help the proposition im
mensely. There is plenty of water either
for use or for power purposes, and lots
of timber. The mineral belt is about a
mile wide and shows an average value
of about ten or twelve dollars. The
workings are all surface and assays run
from $4.50 to $134.60. The veiDS vary
from 2 feet to 44 feet wide.
C. C. Hedum and J. D. Demming are
the principal owners of the Boulder
Creek locations. The property will re
quire capital to develop it, but the
workings, being mostly surface, present!
no engineering problems, either of com
plexity or expense, in fact the operations
are more like quarry work than mining.
The values are nearly all gold and the
veins are so wide tbat immense bodies
of ore can be taken ont in short time.

This company has had a somewhat
tempestuous existence, and was until
cently a strong competitor with the (Jem
Irrigation District for the privilege of
putting water on a big section of the land
to be watered by the Gem District. The
final blow to the hopes of the company
in this direction came when thé Land
Board in Boise a month or so ago refused
to wait on the Idagon people any longer
and recognized the Gem Irrigation Dis
