"Trail Smelter: From Nelson the railway, after passing the south end of the Arrow Lakes, enters the far-famed "Rossland Boundary District," one of the richest mining sections of Canada, a large number of famous camps being here, such as Trail, Rossland, grand Forks, Phoenix, etc. The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company's smelter at Trail is the largest in Canada, and treats gold, silver, lead, zinc and copper ores, and turns out these metals in a refined state ready for the market."
