B.C. mining law appeared in the|
last edition of Northwest Mining!
Truch  of  Spokane    under  thej
caption,   "Blue  Sky in   British'
Columbia," in part as follows:
' Believing that the best place
to nip dishonesty is at its inception, the Mineral Survey and
Development Act has been1
amended to include a provision
that all prospectuses and advertising matter put out regarding
any property in the province
shall first be submitted to the
resident district engineer. It
then becomes the latter's duty
to check up the statements contained in such literature and, if
false statements have been made
or imagination allowed to run
riot, he brings the matter to
the attention of the proper authorities who must then proceed
under the criminal statutes provided. As a matter of fact,
however, a quiet tip from the
resident engineer is usually
enough, so that the province
rids itself of a dishonest promotion."

but it'd help.

It is believed that Canada is

to between two and three million dollars worth. The hoarding has been going on for close

claims that have reverted to the

The list is bulky, containing 30
pages, and covers all parts of

Taxation Act. The Rossland
district heads the list with 800
odd claims, more than 600 are in
the Nelson and Slocan districts,
170 in  the Kettle river district

these claims, and in some instances appreciable ore deposits
have been proved.

AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $637,353,581.
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in tliis Province
is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the value
of production for successive flve-yvar periods: For all years to 1895,
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,605,967; for

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 20 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province ha-^ been even prospected; 300,ooo
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for pros-
pecting.
The mining laws of this Province are more liberal and the feej
j lower than those of any other Province in the Dominion, or any
'Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
I       Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which  is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

INTERNATIONAL
HAS MAKING
OF BIG MINE
Examinations of the International group on Salmon river
were made last week and the
results are reported to have been
so satisfactory that a program
for steady development work is
planned. Work is now proceeding under direction of Pat Daly
who, with R.W. Wood, president
of the Premier, W.R. Wilson
and A.B. Trites of Fernie, own
the property.
Pat Daly is convinced the International will make a mine
that will rival the Premier. It
was Pat's persistence and faith
' in the Premier which was responsible in large part for present activity here. ,
Work on the International is
disclosing a large body of ore.
A creek crossing the property
has assisted preliminary development by cutting through the
large ore body, and cuts have
been run on each side of the
stream giving two 35-foot faces
of good milling ore. This big
lead has been traced for 600 feet
on the surface.
