A PROSPECTING PROBLEM
(Engineering and Mining Journal-Press)
A FEW weeks ago an elderly western
prospector called upon an officer of a large
mining company���to whom he was well
known���and tried to interest him in prospecting and developing some mining
claims located in a productive area a few
hundred miles away from the company's
headquarters. The prospector admitted
that the properties which he recommended
for development were hardly more than
holes ln the ground at present, but contended that they justified the expenditure
of time and money to determine definitely
whether or not they might be transformed
into mines. The official of the mining
company was very appreiative of the position of the prospector and realized that a
nice problem had presented itself. Was
the mining company which he represented | dependent upon the productivity of th. territon
>.   j . . which it serves.   So that it would seem of para
or some kindred organization, warranted | mount importance to all these companies to do all
in furnishing funds for the development
the usual practice and wait until prospects
had been presented to it with showings
sufficiently attractive to encourage taking
an option or making an outright purchase?
THE prospector contended warmly
that it was up to the large and strong
mining companies to stimulate mining
wherever it showed signs of declining activity. Furthermore, they should aid in
the location of new prospects and the development of old ones.
HIS argument had some foundation
in fact. Few mining companies deliberately map out a prospecting campaign and
use part of their financial resources in executing it. They rely almost wholly upon
the reports which are brought to them by
outsiders or by their own scouts on new
or old enterprises which have possibilities
of becoming valuable mines. The reason
for this condition is simple. The large
mining companies are nearly all stock
companies and are responsible to their
stockholders. It is doubtful if the board
of directors would sanction any policy
which savored of a risky nature. The
stockholders are primarily concerned with
the size and regularity of their dividends.
The pressure of this attitude on the part
ofthe stockholders is enough to deter the
directors from authorizing any program
unlikely to have an early favorable effect
upon income. Yet no one will deny thnt
the large mining corporations are admirably suited for the work of prospceting.
They have���or should have���a competent
geological and exploration staff whose skill should
enable them to keep up the scientific search for'
ore. Moreover, these companies wish to perpet-1
uate thiir corporate existence���not an easy mat- j
ter for a mining enterprise, which ie all the more
reason for encouraging prospecting and the aequi
sition of likely prospects. If the large mininp
company happens to be engaged principally ir
Bmelting, its prosperity���as it so  well knows--it

A moment's reflection shows how haphazaro
