The lay of the aware that for some time past there strata in the surrounding mountains has been going on, within a few is at about the same angle indicating nules of. the city, important mining that there, is little likelihood of there developments, which may before long being a "fault" of any extent in tfie result in strikes of great bodies" of strata in Mount Grinnell The entry- copper, rivalling the richest on. the of the mine ;is (about a thousand or American continent. twelve hundred feet up the mountain It is back of the Old Chief nioua- side and driven horizontally j tain, that flat-topped, .table-like peak into the lead, 300 feet or more.

How far in. or -down they come together, or just whereaijtouts, no man Can tell, for no man can see further into the rock than another. Expert mining men can only say that since these veins dip down and not up, they arc not likely to run out, and that every- thing here-points against the chances of them-running into more "pockets" The problem the owners of the Jos- ephine are now considering, is wheth- er to sink a ...sbaft -down from the end of the entry and follow the ore chutes, or whether to drive another entry lower down the mountain side and- strike the ore again at a lower level.

The Canadian law. of course, is excellent where the strata, lies even or hori- zontal, as in the case of the coal strata under Lethbridge, but it is in mountains, where the stratum often stands at an angle of 45 degrees or more that the Montana law fits in so nicely. It fits in nicely in the case of the Josephine and Bull's Head mines. In Mt. Grinnell the stratum, contain- ing the copper veins or ore chutes as they are called. lies a-fc a consider- able dip or angle. Instead of evenly along the case of the moun- tains, jp the outcroppings of- the coaj strata lie more or less evenly along the base of the coulees that run into the .Belly river, the crop of the ore bearing strata runs almost perpendicularly up the side of the mountain, over the top and.down the other .side, ami dips down into the bowels of the mountain and earth to j a depth that no one knows.
