Now that the snow is disappearing
from the hills and prospectors are getting ready for the annual quest for
valuable mineral showings, the Portland Canal Prospectors' Association is
again aative. H. P..Gibson, the president, is receiving inquiries from newcomers, but, in the rebuilding of Stewart, the old headquarters have given
place to the telegraph office and the
ore exhibit is scattered. It is proposed
to utilize some of the space in the firehall for the mineral display and meetings this summer. The mineral display ;
last season was the most attractive
spot to newcomers in the camp.
The Portland Canal Prospectors' Association has the distinction of having
been the first formed in the province.
