different from anything they have ever
seen before, and being of a conservative
nature, they put in a report that, while it
does not condemn, it discourages their
principals from taking hold, thereby doing the property, the district, themselves
and their principals an injustice.
This holds good on every property in
the camp that is now making good.
How many turned down the Premier?
the Outsider? the Indian? the Dunwell?
and several others Ihat are now on the
high road to making large and productive
mines?
Why?---Simply because the examiners
did not take sufficient time to first of all
make a thorough study cf geological and
mineralogical conditions.
This is a most important feature, and
one that cannot be neglected if satisfactory results are to be obtained. Any mining interests conftmplalii g serdirg mining engineers into this district in the sea-
