EMPIRE MINING
CONFERENCE
The Empire Mining and Metallurgical Congress, the first
Empire congress of the kind to
be held, opened at ths British
Empire Exhibition June 3. The
object of the gathering is to discuss scientific, technical and
economie problems connected
with the development of the mining resources of the Empire. It
is alse hoped, as an outcome of
the congress, that an Empir*
c luncil ef mining and metallurgical institutions may be formed.
Referring to oil, Lord Long,
who presided, said there was a
very great potential source of oil
in the Empire in large shale deposits and in torbanite, which is
similar to shale, that contains a
much larger proportion of  high-
grade oil. New South Wales,
Lord Long said, contains the
richest torbanite known, the
yield of which would be 130 gallons to the ton,
It has been estimated that the
aetual iron ore resources in Australia are more than 334,000,000
tons, Lord Long said. Newfoundland possesses deposits of almost
every known variety of iron ore
and two of the largest mines in
the world.
The resources of the Empire.
in which her minerals were reviewed by Lord Long, showed
that the British Empire holds a
secure place in the world in their
production. There are no minerals which could not be found
in some quarter under the British flag.
"Our mining resources are
enormous," said Lord Long.
"We have the mines; we have
the men to develop them."
