that line of work, an appropriation has
b.'en set aside and will ba. siient, under
a scheme outlined by Hon. Wm. Sloan,
, minister of mines.
The object aimed at in this connec-
' tion is to encourage prospecting in districts selected on the advice of the district engineers and to create new
prospectors by giving them a season's
practical instruction.
It is proposed to put out 25 parties
thi-' season, each to consist of two returned men. The one would be an experienced prospector and the other a
man who desires to learn prospecting.
Applications from this district should
be  made to George Clothier, resident
engineer,   Prince  Rupert.    Applicants

STEWART, B.C., June 5,   1920
The aid which the Provincial Government will give returned prospectors
is expected to benefit this district
more than any other in the province.
While, by reason of the scanty population comparatively in these parts,
there will be but few local prospectors
benefit by the Government grubstake,
this country being new and to a large
extent unexplored, will find that prospectors from other sections under the
grubstake will no doubt eventually
come here.
A vast region tributary to Stewart
is practically unexplored. What few
prospectors and trapped have been
over it report excellent mineral indications, lt is a silver-gold country and
by reason of the high price of the white
metal, and the apparent certainty that
high prices will maintain for years, it
offers that additional inducement. Furthermore, it is a country of wide leads,
and where depth has been attained on
the ore bodies, values have been found
to go deep.|
The diamond drills which will be
working this season will to a large extent determine the ore bodies. Drills
will be working on both Salmon River
and Bear River sections and  probably
era of great  activity  throughout this
district.
