Premier Gold Mining Company
recently acquired an option to purchase a group of 26 mineral claims
on Summit Lake on the divide
between the Salmon and Naas
River, owned by Ted Morris of
Stewart and associates. A report
to this effect stated to be based on
good authority, is contained in the
Stewart News. Described as a
"raw prospect," the property will
be immediately subjected to preliminary investigation and development before any definite plans are
decided upon by Premier.
A description of the claims in the(
1930 report of the B. C. minister of
mines states that the location is at
an altitude of from 2720 to 4000
feet. The property is about eight
miles north of the end of the
Missouri road and is reached by a
fair horse trail to near Summit
Lake which Ted Morris has been in
the habit of crossing by means of
an improvised raft.
Dr. rj. T. Mandy, the resident
government engineer, advises that
the property may be recommended
'to mining engineers as being decidedly worthy of extensive exploration. He states that a definite
east-wide structure seems to feature
the locality and on the higher altitudes around the tongue of the
glacier oxidized outcrops can .be
seen that are worth prospecting

The Dutch wheat mixing law,
effective July i, enforcing a maximum of 25 per cent, of soft domestic wheat in the making of

vray, Canadian Trade Commissioner at Rotterdam.
