Page 36 - E. 13 W. In the NW \ of this quarter section several pits, or shafts, have been sunk. During the time the Survey parties were in this district there was no work being done at this locality, and the pits were full of water. Consequently no careful examination could be made. It is evident that the
Page 75 - 1.21 per cent. In regard to the richness of the deposits the foregoing analyses show that there are certain bodies of rock which contain sufficient copper to be termed copper ore. Ore which averages one per cent, of copper will, with the present prices, under favorable conditions and economic working produce a profit.

A few small veins have been found which cut the rocks at a marked angle to the different layers, as at the Percival location. These contain the same minerals as the other veins already mentioned and also carry copper.

This river flows in a broad, flat-bottomed valley which is out of proportion to the size of the present stream. The valley was excavated when the St. Croix acted as the outlet for
Page 37 - The vein strikes nearly east and west and dips 75° to the north near the surface, but the dip varies to more nearly vertical a few feet below the surface. It is the expectation of the owners that this vein will widen out and become copper-bearing some feet below the surface. malachite in the vein. The latter

With the epidote in such masses is much quartz, especially in the amygdules. The copper occurs in the amygdules and also scattered throughout the rock. Many of the occurrences of copper on the St.
