Hi Jim:

The old mining equipment in the paper came from the Grafter mine, which is next to the Arctic Chief.

The hoist and compressor both came from this property.

I have attached two photos of this equipment that I took in 1970.

Robert Lowe shipped 2,000 tons of ore in 1907. In 1912, the Atlas Mining Company held an option on the property and deepened the shaft to 150 feet.

Records show that 11,450 tons of ore averaging six per cent copper was shipped to Anyox from 1915 to 1917.

I believe that Dave Gilbert ended up with the equipment.
