large scale. As soon as work advances
so as to allow more men to ba put to
work they will be employed. The necessary buildings will be erected at once
for offices, boarding and lodging, and
tool and work shop. Thrje portable
houses have been ordered and with the
large quantity of timber and lumber to
be used considerable work will be going
on around the company's property.
During the erection of buildings and
bunkers, mining operations will be confined to gottin,' uu coal which is avail
able for mining now, the company figuring on having ready for shipment
of industries, the proprietors of large
ranches and farms an opportunity to
inerease their staff of employees materially. The outcome of this movement
on the part of the government is expected to prove beneficial to the piov-
ince as a whole.

"In referring to the coal properties
in the Coldwater section, Dr. Ells ol
the dominion geological survey says in
his last report that there are four separate seams of coal in Coal gulley on
the Green estate, that the thickness of
the lower seam, worked from timj to
time is five feet coal, 1 1-2 feet sandstone and 13 feet 7.inches in commercial
coal. This coal averages from three
set of samples and is over 55 per cent
carbon and high grade coking coal."
Another seam on the property about
one and a half miles from Coal Gulley,
on the banks of the Coldwater, Dr. Ells
thinks is separate and distinct of any
seam yet opened in the gulley, and it
will be possible without the aid of one
dollar for machinery and equipment,
other than rails and cars and a couple
of mules for haulage, to mine at the
present time from 100 to 200 tons per
day. Thit production could be increased within twelve months to 1,000 tons
per day, which would supply a town of
5,Win people. This is a possibility of
only a small portion of the field and the
property of one company, and a great
many more interested in this section
will strike the same seam and the coal
products increased beyond expectation.
