The Committee of Council has had before them an application from Mr. J. Wyatt
Vaughan on behalf of the undermentioned Companies, for an extension of time to complete
their assessment work and permission to have the cost of surveys counted as work done on
the claims mentioned.
The Fire Gold Mining Company, owners of the Neptune, Money Spinner, Midas, Free
Gold, Star and Princess Mineral Claims ;
The Fire Lake Gold Mines Company, owners of the March, Crown Point, Morning, Snow
Shoe, Wild Horse, Noon Day, Hard Scrabble and Sun Dog, Mineral Claims ;

Gold Queen Mineral Claims;
The Gold Range Exploring and Mining Company, owners of the Blue Bell, Tepella,
Dividend, Sultan, Rustler, St. Alice, Chancery, Fire Fly, Indian Chief, Echoe and Dandy
Mineral Claims.
The Minister of Mines remarks that the Companies have already expended large sums of
money on the development of their various claims, and that the cause of the delay in the
surveys of these claims was due to a conflict of opinion between the Survey Department and
the Companies' Surveyor as to the interpretation of the " Mineral Act."
The Committee, after consideration of the matter in question, as represented by the
agent for the applicants, advise that an extension of time for a period of six months from the
20th March, 1898, for the purpose, be granted, also that permission be given for the cost of
the surveys to count as part of such assessment work.
The Committee submit the aforesaid for Your Honour's approval.

" (1.) The copies of the British Columbia Gazette and newspaper containing the notices
of application for certificate of improvements ;" and
Whereas section 143 of the "Mineral Act" provides that the Lieutenant-Governor in
Council may make such orders as are deemed necessary to carry out the provisions of this Act
according to their true intent, or to meet the cases which may arise and for which no provision
is made in this Act, or when the provision made is ambiguous or doubtful.
On the recommendation of the Honourable the Minister of Mines,
His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor, by and with the advice of His Executive Council,
has been pleased to declare, and does hereby declare, that the true intent of the sub-section is
to provide for the filing of one copy of the British Columbia Gazette and newspaper containing
the notice in question.
