Bank sponsors tournament for Hospital benefit Sniffing out ore' became a reality last week when St. Joe Minerals, Balmat, became the first company in the continental Unifed States to test the abilities of-a specially trained dog in this innovative search for minerals. Approximately nine years ago, dogs were first trained to recognize and search for sulphide ore in Finland, where this practice has met with marked success. The procedure spread to Russia and Sweden, and more recently to Canada. In October, 1970. under the direction of Dr H V Warren, Department of Geology, University of British Columbia, and Sgt Paul Campbell of the Dog Detail, Vancouver Police Department. the training program in Canada was initiated. K-9 Syndicate was formed, with Bethlehem Copper, Dynasty Explorations. El Paso Natural Gas. Falconbndge Nickel and Kennco Exploration un- derwriting the budget of $8,000— later increased to $11,250—to train the dogs f One of the two dogs trained and owned by K-9 Syndicate. Jai (Japanese for boy') was brought to the St. Joe property by handler Don Campbell from' Northern Ontario where they had been working Mr Campbell (not related to Sgt Campbell) explained that it takes from two to three years to train the dogs to seek out only sulphide rocks The dogs have a working span of seven to eight years, although the enthusiastic Jai, just over two years old, has began to wear down his teeth, which may need re-capping Conditions were less than favorable on Wednesday, when Don and Jai arrived. After a trial run in the down-pouring rain over terrain known to be liberally sprinkled with sulphide samples, Jai was taken, unleashed, into an unexplored wooded area. Although the ground was thickly matted with leaves and un- derbrush, he quickly uncovered a rock which St. Joe geologists Don Grout and John Kreider iden- tified as being rich in Pyrite, a sulphide of iron. Campbell, a prospector from Vancouver, explained that rain will hamper the dog's mineral tracking, and that ideally the ground should be warmer than the air Canines have been known to locate ore specimens lying as deep as four feet below the surface of the ground. German Shepherds are most frequently used tor this work, although others, including La bra dors have been trained with success. Only male dogs qualify. K-9 Syndicate has one other dog. Buddy Rick Maynard, trainer of the dogs since the beginning of the project and Mr. Campbell handle the dogs while they are working Man and dog have to become accustomed to working together to become a team, Mr Campbell noted, and added that he and Jai were 'still learning to work together'. He first became interested in dog training through acquain- tance with Sgt Campbell, whose canine police are rated as second only to those of Scotland Yard Sgt Campbell, who helped initiate the program, still serves in an advisory capacity. In Canada, the mining in- dustry has shown acceptance of reasearch and development of the dog-training program by their contributions to the existing program. Government assistance is being sought, as it is felt the program will benefit the entire mineral exploration community. Commenting on last week's experiment. Marvin Lane, Division Manager, noted that results were inconclusive. Ambiguous results were ob- tained. High humidity and rain were a detriment to a successful trial, and the dog, after a long plane trip, was not at peak performance Another test run, when the weather is cooler and hopefully dryer, is being considered.

LOOKING JUSTIFIABLY PROUD OF HIMSELF, Jai, rock hunter, watches John Kreider, St. Joe geologist, examine the ore sample which Jai had just located in the matted underbrush of an unexplored area. Don Campbell, left, who handled the dog, explained that rain hampered the search for mineral ore in this test run, as the canines work most effectively when the ground is warmer than the air—and not as damp as it was that day.
