Dedication JULIAN GIFFORD CROSS 1888-1972 The diamond drill, perched on the ice of Steep Rock Lake in Northwestern Ontario, chugged away, the sound of its steam engine muffled by the snow. The driller called to a man who was sitting in a corner of the drill shack writing in a notebook. The man picked up some of the sludge, looked at the dark brown specks for a moment, and then quietly said, " Well, that ' s just worth a million dollars to m e! " Julian Gifford Cross probably had reason, that March day in 1938, to be much more excited than he appeared to be. The hematite fragments that he held in his hands were the first proof that iron ore lay under the waters of Steep Rock Lake. He must have felt a tremendous sense of satisfaction at that moment in knowing that his theory, developed ten years before had been proved correct. In spite of the set-backs, disappointments, and skepticism from his colleagues, he had stuck stubbornly to his conviction that iron ore lay beneath Steep Rock Lake. The Steep Rock iron ore deposit was not the only major discovery made by Julian Cross. In the late 1920 ' s, Julian and his brother John staked claims at Shebandowan Lake in Northwestern Ontario. It was on these claims that they discovered the Shebandowan nickel deposit. In the early 1930 ' s, INCO purchased the c laims from the Cross brothers for $250,000 and, a good portion of this amount became the seed money for the start of exploration at Steep Rock Lake. Those who knew Julian Cross, when asked to describe him, invariably used words like " quiet " , " tenacious " , " persistent " , and " kindly " . For the man who was the discoverer of two major orebodies he was completely unspoiled. He is best known, and probably happiest as a prospector — and a remarkably successful one — with a packsack on his back, and a prospector ' s pick in his hand.
