HE Dominion geological and topographical survey parties, headed by
J. J. O'Neill and F. V.. Falconer, have
finished their season's work in the Salmon River camp. Next year a
map, and what should be a very interesting report on the geology of this
wonderful mineral area will be published, and should be secured by all interested in the mining future-of this
district.
There is a much too prevalent idea
among prospectors and others of the
mining fraternity that these surveys
are of doubtful utility and that the
time and money used   in   the   prepara-
' Peninsula as  having greater prospective value  than  those  in  any of the
! other formations on   the   southern   end |

concentrations, but that where the
good j zones were strong persistent ore shouid
be found in them to considerable
depths.

Although the delay has been long the

A good deal of attention has been
given to the Bear River section during
the past few weeks. There are rumors
of two or three options. It is only a
question of time when this section will
create a lot of interest for there are
signs that point strongly to a Bear
excitement in the spring. What development is taking place this season
has given most encouraging results.
The work that has been done on many
claims has justified the faith of the
owners. Some advanced development
is going on in places. The work is not
altogether of a prospecting nature. In
the course of their field work this summer the flock of engineer gave many
an owner advice which is being foi-:
lowed in development. The visiting'
engineers without exception have tes-;

moat cases and before the extent of

camps at the head of the canal ���Stewart at the mouth ol Bear River and Hyder on the Alaska side at the mouth
of Salmon River. There is room for two big camps in this mineral area and the ore showings justify the faith
of the residents of both camps.
