This is attested by the fact that the smelter has tTpated to date 3,179,307 tons of o�e. having a gross value of $94,315,754' and representing 1,778,921 oz. gold. '27,6011 ?A,Q o?.. silver. ^.�>8,326,524 lb. lead, 75,017,410 lb. copper, and Z3,0.56,996/lb. zinc. Tbe site of the gipelter was admirably selected having reKard to engineering and commercial considerations and requirem.nts on an elevated terrare of gravelly soil overlooking the Columbia river; an only a-few miles distipt are the magnificent Farts Of ^Djinlngton, from which the plant. derives" Its power. Moreover, ore can ba shipped foi treatment to this centre mast readily and advantageously :frbm tlie various localities In both West and East Koote-nay, and indeed from much fartber aScld. In cohlbequeEce the Trail smelter has becoiiiii.almost a national if nut an internatlona! institution, since in recent years It has treated in addition to British Columbia lead, zinc and copper ores, ores from the I Vukon, Manitoba, and Ontario, from' the United States itcd from China. From .quite small bfginniaga the Works hare bees' expanded until they BOW cover many acres of ground, and when working jSit*full capacity give employment t� 1,600 men, a large proportion of Wham are necessarily skilled. In this article it is not pro posed to go into technical details, b-t It may be stated briefly that the m. j smelting plant consists of from cap-aer blast-furnaces,- four lead blastfurnaces, and two- 12-rt. � basic-line* conVArters, the product of which Is refined locally, e>tplnying electrolytic methbds. TljiB''lattcr, 'erhaps. Is the moot �interesting part ol the story; and ^s a national ftchle/emcnt reflects tbe greatest possible credit oh those responsiblsyfer its successful eBtabliahment. B.efore tn� war the only .useful melftVj J,a refin^ti form iproduced in Canadjijjy-as lead, which was exclusively unj|ertjiJui'B at Trail; but our copper (^%d oiiy zinc, both being by the way essfsntial .(^etalB In fined, and then to SBflqfy our awn re>. quircmepts tor these metals In finished or unmanufactured form we ^repurchased at, of course, a vastly enhanced price representing the proilla of manufacture in a foreign country pluii the import duty. Ail o? which was the reverse of good bus-tnesa. But the war, which has had so stimulative as effect on the national energies in gpneral. Influenced action beneflcially in this direction also; and upon the urging of the Munition Board those In-charge' of the Irail Smelter set to work with a'will, and succeeded after mupfi experimentation in producing refined zinc electro-lytically on a commercia' scale. Tho plant now in operation ha.'s a iap?,clty of from 60 to 70 tons of spelter daily, and last year produced 10,M0 tons of zinc, having s value of ?.^.000.noo, which, as is stated in an olTiclal report, marks "an epoch in the metallurgical history of Canada." So also with the refining of copper, whicli be, fore the war was on many sides pro-" nounced to be an undertaking that could not ecoaomfcally be conducted fn Canada, but which during t'-.e past two years b'as been most successfully carried on at Trail, th� two copper converters, installed in 1916 enabling the matte from the copper furnace.t that previously had bben shipped awfey'for further treatment, to, bs converted into blisteV-copper, which in turn is refined electrolytecally in a plane which had an Initial capacity of 10 tons dally; but which, since baa been enlarged to handle .wlct that amouJft. Other products'of tbe smel*. ter are coiiper sulptiate, lead pipe, shrapnel, wire, golrl. silver, aulphurie acid, and hydrofluosilicla acid. In., short, it is now as complete a metallurgical works as there is on' tha continent, and as such has played a mast Important and . useful role in furnishing the mrtals needed for munition ma.kinc Canada, thus contributing mcifir" - r to the effoc tivsness of t'I^ominion's war efforts.
