THE MINING INDUSTRY.
BY
John F. Walker.
The value of mine production in 1938 was $64,485,551, a decrease of $1,990,351 from 1937.
The decrease is due largely to the return to normal of base-metal prices. This is shown
clearly in the case of lead and zinc, where the volume changes are slight but the decrease in
value amounts to about 35 per cent. All phases of the industry, except clay products, showed
decreases.
Lead production of 412,979,182 lb., though only slightly below the 1937 volume record,
decreased in value from the all-time value record of $21,416,949 to $13,810,024.
Zinc production again established a record for volume with a production of 298,497,295
lb., but the value decreased from $14,274,245 to $9,172,825.
Coal, valued at $5,565,069, shows a decrease of 9.4 per cent, from the 1937 value.
Copper production increased in volume by 42.8 per cent, to 65,769,906 lb., but, due to
lower prices, the value increased only 8.9 per cent, to $6,558,575. Production of this metal
has made a very healthy recovery and is now about normal.
Silver production at 10,861,578 oz. is 4 per cent, below the record volume production of
1937, and the value of $4,722,288 is 6.8 per cent. less.
Non-metallic minerals and structural materials, taken in groups, show two losses to one
gain, with individual items showing substantial gains or losses. There has been a steady
improvement in these groups during the past few years, but 1938 shows the first set-back.
Individual items indicate an increase in ordinary building activity and a decrease in heavier
construction.
The total number of shipping-mines increased from 185 to 211, those shipping 100 tons
decreased from 113 to 92.
The number of men employed decreased slightly from 16,129, last year's record, to 16,021;
but wages and salaries increased from $21,349,690 to $22,791,685, the greatest amount ever
paid out in any year.
Dividends decreased from the all-time record in 1937 of $15,085,293 to $11,992,316. These
figures do not include dividends paid by the Howe Sound Mining Company, parent company
of the Britannia Mining and Smelting Company, and the latter figure does not include dividends paid by Premier Gold Mining Company, Limited.
GENERAL SITUATION.
At the first of the year it appeared that volume and value production for 1938 would
show some variation in individual items from that of 1937, but that the gross value would be
about the same.
At the time of writing the situation does not appear to be quite so bright, as base-metal
prices, particularly lead and zinc, have shown no tendency to improve and are averaging
considerably below 1938 prices. Any appreciation that may take place before the end of the
year can hardly be expected to raise prices for lead and zinc to the levels of last year.
It is anticipated lode gold may show a slight increase in volume. Increased production,
particularly from Vancouver Island, is being offset to a large extent by decreased production
from the Kootenays.
Placer gold should show a slight increase in value and it is anticipated that considerable
testing and development of placer properties will be undertaken during the year.
Indications to date are that silver production will be substantially below that of last year,
and while it is impossible to predict what may happen to the price for the metal, it is apparent
that if the price holds the value production will be materially less.
Copper production should show a slight gain in volume but, unless the price of the metal
recovers from its recent break, no increase in value is anticipated.
Lead production is expected to show a substantial decrease in volume and, unless the
price of the metal improves to a greater extent than can be anticipated, there will be another
appreciable decrease in the value production of this metal. A 6 REPORT OF THE MINISTER OF MINES, 1938.
Zinc production is likely to show an appreciable decrease in volume and, like lead, a substantial decrease in value.
The value of coal production is expected to be about the same as in 1938.
Structural materials will likely have about the same value as last year.
In preparing the foregoing estimate, it is assumed that no major disaster will affect the
mining industry or any of the larger producers. If the industry functions smoothly throughout the year, it is anticipated that while the value of mine production may be about $5,000,000
less than in 1938, the industry, in so far as employment and supplies are concerned, will have
had a very good year.
GOLD PURCHASING.
Late in 1935 the Department of Finance, co-operating with the Department of Mines,
undertook to purchase small lots of placer gold under 2 oz. in weight from the individual
placer-miner. The Gold Commissioners throughout the Province have paid a cash price of
$28 per ounce for clean gold, and have purchased dirty gold and amalgam on a deferred-
payment basis. Purchases of gold have increased from 1,470 lots in 1936, valued at some
$50,000, to 2,397 lots in 1938, valued at approximately $72,000. The total price paid has been
almost exactly the same as that received from the Royal Canadian Mint, except for the Mint's
handling charge of 1 per cent. This purchasing scheme has returned to the individual miners
from $10,000 to $15,000 per annum more than if they had sold through the ordinary channels.
LECTURES TO PROSPECTORS.
A series of fourteen lectures prepared by the Deputy Minister of Mines in 1934 was again
given during the winter of 1938-39 by the departmental Mining Engineers and others in
different centres throughout the Province, as follows: Abbotsford, Kitchener, Nanaimo, Vancouver, Victoria, and Yahk.
The total estimated average attendance at the lectures was 264. This work was carried
out in conjunction with the Department of Education. The brochure entitled " Elementary
Geology applied to Prospecting " was used as a basis for these lectures and copies may be
obtained from the Department of Mines at the nominal charge of 35 cents. A total of 822 of
these books were distributed in 1938.
Prospectors' sets of about fifty rocks and minerals commonly found in British Columbia
have been in great demand and 204 sets were distributed throughout the Province at a cost
of 50 cents per set to the recipient. Requests for these sets have been received from many
parts of Canada and the United States, but up to the present only those resident in British
Columbia have been supplied.
DOMINION-PROVINCIAL MINE TRAINING CAMPS.
The Dominion and Provincial Departments of Labour carried on the plan created in
former years, whereby young unemployed men between the ages of 20 and 25 years were given
an opportunity to learn the general rudiments of mining and prospecting. Instruction was
carried out under the direction of the Chief Mining Engineer.
This plan was a departure from the one followed in former years, which embraced placer-
mining only, inasmuch that between fifty and sixty trainees, out of 125 instructed, who passed
their examinations on subjects taught them at Emory Creek, were sent to Quesnel Forks in
the Cariboo district for a further three months' training under practical instructors. The
Quesnel Forks area had already been reported upon and mapped by the Geological Survey of
Canada, so the trainees could familiarize themselves with the different types of rocks, etc.,
and learn how to explore a mineral deposit. In addition some placer-mining was done and
recoveries made.
During the winter the metal-mine operators kindly co-operated with the Departments
and gave jobs to about thirty trained young men. About fifteen more were able to obtain
positions throughout the Province as a result of this training.
SAMPLING PLANT, PRINCE RUPERT.
In 1937 a sampling plant was built on the waterfront at Prince Rupert and put into
operation on August 20th. The object in erecting a sampling plant at this point was chiefly
for the purpose of stimulating prospecting and the development of properties along the Prince THE MINING INDUSTRY. A 7
Rupert branch of the Canadian National Railway. The sampling plant was erected on the
Coast so that full advantage could be taken of special freight rates arranged especially for
shipments of ore to the plant.
The sampling plant is, as its name implies, only a sampling plant and not a concentrator.
Ores containing sufficient value to ship direct to the smelter are purchased and assembled at
the plant until sufficient tonnage is accumulated to warrant shipment to the smelter. By
mixing lots at the plant it is possible also to reduce smelter penalties on individual shipments
and so give the prospector the benefit of a mixed lot.
The plant may also be used by those developing properties for the purpose of bulk-
sampling.
For the calendar year 1938, 161 lots, comprising 24 tonnage lots for shipment, 90 lots for
bulk test-sampling, and 47 lots for assay were received at the plant. These lots aggregated
104 tons and, including shipments to the plant late in 1937, 148 tons were shipped to the
smelter, for which $7,536,75 was received as against $7,685.24 paid out by the plant.
This plant is serving its purpose and is stimulating prospecting and development of small
properties to a greater extent than for many years. A full report on the sampling plant is
contained in Part B.
GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF CANADA.
By an arrangement made at the time the Province of British Columbia entered Confederation, all geological investigations and mapping in the Province were to be carried on
by the Geological Survey of Canada; this agreement has been fully adhered to by the
Dominion of Canada and has proved of great benefit to the mining industry of the Province.
Each year several geological parties are kept in the field and in the aggregate a vast amount
of information is made available to the prospector and the mining engineer in the many excellent reports and maps covering British Columbia which have been issued by the Geological
Survey of Canada.
For some years a branch office of the Geological Survey has been maintained in Vancouver, where copies of maps and reports on British Columbia can be obtained. The officer
in charge of the British Columbia office is W. E. Cockfield, and the address is 305 Federal
Building, Vancouver, B.C.
In 1936 a reorganization of several departments in the Federal Government was effected,
and the Department of Mines and Resources created. One of the main branches of this
Department is that of Mines and Geology, with sub-branches known as the Bureau of Geology
and Topography and the Bureau of Mines. The Geological Survey of Canada and the Topographical Survey are now a part of the Bureau of Geology and Topography. During the
season of 1937 the Bureau of Geology and Topography had the following officers employed on
field-work in British Columbia:—
Geological Parties.
1. J. E. Armstrong and J. G. Gray commenced the study and mapping of the geology of
Hazelton map-area, west half (latitude 55° to 56°, longitude 127° to 128°).
2. E. D. Kindle examined mineral properties tributary to the Canadian National Railways in the vicinity of Hazelton.
3. A. H. Lang commenced the study and mapping of the geology of Smithers map-area,
east half (latitude 54° to 55°, longitude 126° to 127°).
4. C. H. Crickmay studied and mapped the geology of Quesnel Lake map-area, west half
(latitude 52° 30' to 52° 45', longitude 121° 15' to 121° 30').
5. H. M. A. Rice completed the study and mapping of the geology of Nelson map-area,
east half (latitude 49° to 50°, longitude 116° to 117°).
6. W. E. Snow continued the study and mapping of the geology of Hope map-area, west
half (latitude 49° to 50°, longitude 121° to 122°).
7. M. F. Bancroft studied the geology and mineral deposits of Zeballos area, Vancouver
Island.
8. F. H. McLearn completed stratigraphical and faunal studies in Peace River district.
Topographical Parties.
C. H. Smith and R. J. Parlee continued the mapping of the Tatlatui sheet (94 D) (latitudes 56° to 57°, longitudes 126° to 128°). A 8 REPORT OF THE MINISTER OF MINES, 1938.
H. A. S. West mapped the east half of the Nelson sheet (82 F/6) (latitudes 49° 15' to
49° 30', longitudes 117° 00' to 117° 15').
METHOD OF COMPUTING PRODUCTION.
The total mine output of the Province consists of the outputs of metalliferous minerals,
coal, structural materials, and miscellaneous metals, minerals, and materials, valued at standard recognized prices in Canadian funds.
In the Annual Report for 1925 some changes were made in the methods used in previous
years in computing and valuing the products of the industry, but in order to facilitate comparisons with former years the same general style of tables was adhered to. The methods
used in the 1925 Annual Report have been followed in subsequent Annual Reports, with the
addition of new tables.
The following notes explain the methods used:—
(1.) From the certified returns of lode mines of ore and concentrate shipments made during the full calendar year by the producers the net recovered metal contents have been determined by deducting from the " assay value content " necessary corrections for smelting and
refining losses.
In making comparisons of production figures with previous years, it should be remembered that prior to 1925 in the Annual Reports the total metal production, with the exception
of copper, was determined by taking the assay value content of all ores shipped; deductions
for slag losses were made by taking varying percentages off the metal prices.
(2.) Gold-placer returns are received from operators giving production in crude ounces
recovered; these are converted to fine-gold.ounces by dividing the crude-ounce value by the
old standard price of gold. The fine-gold content is then valued at the yearly average price
of gold, which in 1936 was $35.03 per ounce. On this basis the average crude-gold value per
ounce was $28.80 on Provincial placer-gold production.
(3.) The prices used in valuing the different metals are: For gold, the average price for
the year; for silver, the average New York metal-market price for the year; for lead, the
average London metal-market price for the year; and for zinc, the average London metal-
market price for the year. As in 1936, copper in 1937 is valued at the average London metal-
market price. Prior to 1932 copper was valued at the average New York price. The change
was made because very little copper was being marketed in the United States on account of
high tariff charges against importations from foreign countries. The bulk of the lead and
zinc production of the Province is sold on the basis of the London prices of these metals and
they are therefore used. The New York, St. Louis, and Montreal lead- and zinc-market prices
differ materially from the London prices of these metals and are not properly applicable to the
valuing of the British Columbia production.
By agreement with the Dominion Bureau of Statistics and the Provincial Statistical
Bureaus, the following procedure of taking care of the exchange fluctuations has been agreed
upon:—
(a.)   Silver to be valued at the average New York price, adjusted to Canadian funds
at the average exchange rate.
(6.)  Lead, zinc, and copper to be valued at London prices, adjusted to Canadian
funds at the average exchange rate.
(4.) In 1926 a change was made in computing coal and coke statistics. The practice in
former years had been to list coal and coke production (in part) as primary mineral production. Only the coke made in bee-hive ovens was so credited; that made in by-product ovens
was not listed as coke, but the coal used in making this coke was credited as coal production.
The result was that the coke-production figures were incomplete. Starting with the 1926
Annual Report, the standard practice of the Bureau of Statistics, Ottawa, has been adopted.
This consists of crediting all coal produced, including that used in making coke, as primary
mine production. Coke-making is considered a manufacturing industry. As it is, however,
of interest to the mining industry, a table included in the Report shows the total coke produced
in the Province, together with by-products, and the values given by the producers. This valuation of coke is not, of course, included in the total gross mine production of the Province.
From 1918 to 1930 coal production was valued at $5 per long ton. In 1931 the price used
■was $4.50, and from 1932 on the price used has been $4.25 per long ton. In making comparisons with former years the decline in dollar value is accentuated by this lowered price. THE MINING INDUSTRY. A 9

Note.—In making comparisons with average prices used prior to 1926, it should be remembered that deductions
were made from the average prices as a means of adjustment between the " assay value content" of ores shipped
instead of allowing percentage losses in smelting operations. The price of copper prior to 1926 was taken at
"net"; silver, at 95 per cent.; lead, at 90 per cent.; and zinc, at 85 per cent. Subsequent to 1926 (inclusive)
prices are true averages, and adjustments are made on the metal content of ores for loss in smelting and refining.

* The Howe Sound Company is the holding company for tha Britannia mine in British Columbia and other mines
in Mexico and the State of Washington. Dividends paid by the Howe Sound Company are therefore derived from all
operations, and in the foregoing table the dividends credited to the Britannia mine have been paid by the Britannia
Mining and Smelting Company, Limited, none being credited subsequent to 1930. In making comparison with yearly
totals the amounts credited to the Howe Sound Company have been deducted for the years shown, so the total in the
annual report concerned will show the higher figure. Dividends paid by Premier Gold Mining Company, Limited,
are derived from operations in British Columbia and other countries, and so cannot now be credited to British
Columbia. Silbak Premier is a subsidiary of Premier Gold Mining Company, and dividends paid by that company
are, of course, included in Provincial totals.
t The amount shown to the credit of the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting, and Power Company, Limited,
does not include the sum of $6,749,996 paid by the company during 1935 and 1936 as a distribution or repayment of
capital, subsequent to the closing-down of its operations at Anyox and the company going into voluntary liquidation.
Operations ceased at Anyox in August, 1935. The company since that date has revived its business charter and is
conducting operations at Allenby, B.C.
The term " Miscellaneous " noted in each class of dividend covers all payments of $5,000 and under, together with
payments made by companies or individuals requesting that the item be not disclosed.
In compiling the foregoing table of dividends paid, the Department wishes to acknowledge the kind assistance
given by companies, individuals, and trade journals in giving information on the subject. THE MINING INDUSTRY. A 29

SYNOPSIS OF MINING LAWS OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.
Mineral Act and Placer-mining Act.
The mining laws of British Columbia are very liberal in their nature and compare favourably with those of any other part of the world. The terms under which both lode and placer
claims and placer leaseholds are held are such that a prospector is greatly encouraged in his
work, and the titles, especially for mineral claims and placer-mining leaseholds, are perfect.
The fees required to be paid are as small as possible, consistent with a proper administration
of the mining industry, and are generally lower than those commonly imposed elsewhere.
Provision is also made for the formation of mining partnerships practically without expense,
and a party of miners is enabled to take advantage of these sections of the Acts so that such
miners may work their claims jointly.
Placer-mining leases are granted for a period of twenty years and are approximately 80
acres in size. On a lode claim of 51 acres the expenditure of $500 in work, which may be
spread over five years, is required to obtain a Crown grant, and surface rights are obtainable
at a small figure, in no case exceeding $5 per acre.
The following synopsis of the mining laws will be found sufficient to enable the miner
or intending investor to obtain a general knowledge of their scope and requirements; for
particulars, however, the reader is referred to the Acts relating to mining, which may be
obtained from any Mining Recorder, or from the Department of Mines or the King's Printer,
Victoria, B.C.
Free Miners' Certificates.
Any person over the age of 18, and any joint-stock company, may obtain a free miner's
certificate on payment of the required fee.
The fee to an individual for a free miner's certificate is $5 for one year. To a joint-stock
company having a capital of $100,000, or less, the fee for a year is $50; if capitalized beyond
this, the fee is $100.
The free miners' certificates run from date of issue and expire on the 31st day of May
next after its date, or some subsequent 31st day of May (that is to say, a certificate may be
taken out a year or more in advance if desired). Certificates may be obtained for any part
of a year, terminating on May 31st, for a proportionately less fee.
The possession of this certificate entitles the holder to enter upon all lands of the Crown,
and upon any other lands on which the right to so enter is not specially reserved, for the
purpose of prospecting for minerals, locating claims, and mining.
A free miner can hold, by location, during any period of twelve months, eight mineral
claims within a radius of 10 miles, and may acquire others by purchase. Under the " Placer-
mining Act," a free miner may locate, in any period of twelve consecutive months, one placer
claim or leasehold in his own name and one placer claim or leasehold for each of three free
miners for whom he acts as agent, on any separate creek, river-bed, bar or dry diggings.
Other placer claims or leaseholds may be acquired by purchase.
In the event of a free miner allowing his certificate to lapse, his mining property (if not
Crown-granted) reverts to the Crown (subject to the conditions set out in the next succeeding
paragraph), but where other free miners are interested as partners or co-owners the interest
of the defaulter becomes vested in the continuing co-owners or partners pro rata, according to
their interests.
Six months' extension of time within which to revive title in mining property which has
been forfeited through the lapse of a free miner's certificate is allowed. This privilege is given
only if the holder of the property obtains a special free miner's certificate within six months
after the 31st of May on which his ordinary certificate lapsed. The fee for this special
certificate in the case of a person is $15 and in that of a company $300.
It is not necessary for a shareholder, as such, in an incorporated mining company to be
the holder of a free miner's certificate. THE MINING INDUSTRY. A 41
Mineral Claims.
Mineral claims are located and held under the provisions of the " Mineral Act."
A mineral claim is a piece of land not exceeding in area fifty-one and sixty-five one-
hundredths acres. The angles must be right angles unless the boundaries, or one of them,
are the same as those of a previously recorded claim.
No special privileges are allowed for the discovery of new mineral claims or districts.
A mineral claim is located by erecting two " legal posts," which are stakes having a
height of not less than 4 feet above ground and squared 4 inches at least on each face for not
less than a foot from the top. A tree-stump so cut and squared also constitutes a legal post.
A cairn of stones not less than 4 feet in height and not less than 1 foot in diameter 4 feet
above the ground may also be used as a legal post. Upon each of these posts must be written
the name of the claim, the name of the locator, and the date of location. On No. 1 post, in
addition, the following must be written:   "Initial post.    Direction of Post No. 2   \_giving
approximate compass bearing']  feet of this claim lie on the right and — feet on
the left of the line from No. 1 to No. 2 posts."
The location-line between Nos. 1 and 2 posts must be distinctly marked—in a timbered
locality by blazing trees and cutting underbrush, and in bare country by monuments of earth
or rock not less than 2 feet in diameter at the base, and at least 2 feet high—so that the line
can be distinctly seen.
Mineral claims must be recorded in the Mining Recorder's office for the mining division
in which they are situate within fifteen days from the date of location, one day extra being
allowed for each 10 miles of distance from the recording office after the first 10 miles. If a
claim is not recorded in time it is deemed abandoned and open for relocation, but if the
original locator wishes to relocate he can only do so by permission of the Gold Commissioner
of the district and upon the payment of a fee of $10. This applies also to a claim abandoned
for any reason whatever.
Mineral claims are, until the Crown grant is issued, held practically on a yearly lease,
a condition of which is that during such year assessment-work be performed on the same to
the value of at least $100, or a payment of such sum be made to the Mining Recorder. Such
assessments must be recorded before the expiration of the year, or the claim is deemed abandoned. If, however, the required assessment-work has been performed within the year, but
not recorded within that time, a free miner may, within thirty days thereafter, record such
assessment-work upon payment of an additional fee of $10. The actual cost of the survey of
a mineral claim, to an amount not exceeding $100, may also be recorded as assessment-work.
If, during any year, work is done to a greater extent than the required $100, any further sum
of $100—but not less—may be recorded and counted as further assessments; such excess
work must be recorded during the year in which it is performed. All work done on a mineral
claim between the time of its location and recording may be counted as work done during the
first period of one year from the recording. As soon as assessment-work to the extent of $500
is recorded and a survey made of the claim, the owner of a mineral claim is entitled to a
Crown grant on payment of a fee of $25, and giving the necessary notices required by the Act.
Liberal provisions are also made in the Act for obtaining mill-sites and other facilities in the
way of workings and drains for the better working of claims.
Placer Claims.
Placer-mining is governed by the " Placer-mining Act," and by the interpretation clause
its scope is defined as " the mining of any natural stratum or bed of earth, gravel, or cement
mined for gold or other precious minerals or stones." Placer claims are of four classes, as
follows:—
" ' Creek diggings ':   any mine in the bed of any stream or ravine:
" ' Bar digging ': any mine between high- and low-water marks on a river, lake, or other
large body of water:
" ' Dry diggings ':   any mine over which water never extends:
" ' Precious-stone diggings ': any deposit of precious stones, whether in veins, beds, or
gravel deposits." A 42 REPORT OF THE MINISTER OF MINES, 1938.
The following provisions as to extent of the various classes of claims are made by the
Act:—
" In ' creek diggings ' a claim shall be two hundred and fifty feet long, measured in the
direction of the general course of the stream, and shall extend in width one thousand
feet, measured from the general course of the stream five hundred feet on either side
of the centre thereof:
" In ' bar diggings ' a claim shall be:—
"(a.)  A piece of land not exceeding two hundred and fifty feet square on any bar
which is covered at high water;   or
"(6.)  A strip of land two hundred and fifty feet long at high-water mark, and in
width extending from high-water mark to extreme low-water mark:
" In ' dry diggings ' a claim shall be two hundred and fifty feet square."
The following provision is made for new discoveries of placer-mining ground:—
" If any free miner, or party of free miners, discovers a new locality for the prosecution
of placer-mining and such discovery be established to the satisfaction of the Gold Commissioner, placer claims of the following sizes shall be allowed to such discoverers, namely:—
" To one discoverer, one claim    600 feet in length;
" To a party of two discoverers, two claims amounting together to 1,000 feet in length;
" And to each member of a party beyond two in number, a claim of the ordinary size only.
" The width of such claims shall be the same as ordinary placer claims of the same class:
Provided that where a discovery claim has been established in any locality no further discovery shall be allowed within five miles therefrom, measured along the watercourses."
Every placer claim shall be as nearly as possible rectangular in form, and marked by
four legal posts at the corners thereof, firmly fixed in the ground. On each of such posts
shall be written the name of the locator, the number and date of issue of his free miner's
certificate, the date of the location, and the name given to the claim. In timbered localities
boundary-lines of a placer claim shall be blazed so that the posts can be distinctly seen, underbrush cut, and the locator shall also erect legal posts not more than 125 feet apart on all
boundary-lines. In localities where there is no timber or underbrush, monuments of earth
and rock, not less than 2 feet high and 2 feet in diameter at base, may be erected in lieu of the
last-mentioned legal posts, but not in the case of the four legal posts marking the corners of
the claim.
A placer claim must be recorded in the office of the Mining Recorder for the mining
division within which the same is situate, within fifteen days after the location thereof, if
located within 10 miles of the office of the Mining Recorder by the most direct means of travel.
One additional day shall be allowed for every 10 miles additional or fraction thereof. The
number of days shall be counted inclusive of the days upon which such location was made, but
exclusive of the day of application for record. The application for such record shall be under
oath and in the form set out in the Schedule to the Act. A claim which shall not have been
recorded within the prescribed period shall be deemed to have been abandoned.
To hold a placer claim for more than one year it must be rerecorded before the expiration
of the record or rerecord.
A placer claim must be worked by the owner, or some one on his behalf, continuously, as
far as practicable, during working-hours. If work is discontinued for a period of seven days,
except during the close season, lay-over, leave of absence, sickness, or for some other reason
to the satisfaction of the Gold Commissioner, the claim is deemed abandoned.
Lay-overs are declared by the Gold Commissioner upon proof being given to him that the
supply of water is insufficient to work the claim. Under similar circumstances he has also the
power to declare a close season, by notice in writing and published in the Gazette, for all or
any claims in his district. Tunnel and drain licences are also granted by him on the person
applying giving security for any damage that may arise. Grants of right-of-way for the
construction of tunnels or drains across other claims are also granted on payment of a fee
of $25, the owner of the claims crossed having the right for tolls, etc., on the tunnel or drain
which may be constructed. These tolls, however, are, so far as the amount goes, under "the
discretion of the Gold Commissioner. THE  MINING INDUSTRY. A 43
Co-owners and Partnerships.
In both the " Mineral " and " Placer-mining " Acts provision is made for the formation of
mining partnerships, both of a general and limited liability character. These are extensively
taken advantage of and have proved very satisfactory in their working. Should a co-owner
fail or refuse to contribute his proportion of the expenditure required as assessment-work on
a claim he may be " advertised out," and his interest in the claim shall become vested in his
co-owners who have made the required expenditure, pro rata according to their former
interests.
It should not be forgotten that if any co-owner permits his free miner's certificate to
lapse, the title of his associates is not prejudiced, but his interest reverts to the remaining
co-owners; provided that said co-owner has not taken advantage of the six months' period of
grace allowed for the taking-out of a special free miner's certificate, thus reviving the title
to his interest.
Placer-mining Leases.
Leases of unoccupied Crown lands approximately 80 acres in extent may be granted
by the Gold Commissioner of the district after location has been made by staking along a
" location-line " not more than one-half a mile (2,640 feet) in length. In this line one bend,
or change of direction, is permitted. Where a straight line is followed two posts only are
necessary—namely, an " initial post" and a " final post." Where there is a change of direction a legal post must be placed to mark the point of the said change. The leasehold is
allowed a width not in excess of one-quarter mile (1,320 feet), and the locator, both on his
" initial post " and in his notice of intention to apply, which is posted at the office of the
Mining Recorder, is required to state how many feet are included in the location to the right
and how many feet to the left of the location-line.
That section of the Act dealing with the staking of placer-mining leases follows:—
" 105. (1.) For the purpose of locating a placer leasehold, a line to be known as the
' location-line ' shall be marked on the ground by placing a legal post at each end, one post
to be known as the ' Initial Post' and the other as the ' Final Post.' The direction of the
location-line may change at not more than one point throughout its length, and an intermediate legal post shall be placed at the point at which the direction changes. The total
length of the location-line, following its change of direction (if any), shall not exceed two
thousand six hundred and forty feet.
"(2.) Upon the initial post and the final post shall be written the words ' Initial Post'
and ' Final Post' respectively, together with the name of the locator and the date of the
location. On the initial post shall also be written the approximate compass-bearing of the
final post, and a statement of the number of feet of the leasehold lying on the right and on the
left of the location-line, as viewed from the initial post, not exceeding in the aggregate a width
of thirteen hundred and twenty feet, thus:   ' Direction of Final Post, . feet of
this claim lie on the right and feet on the left of the location-line.'    In addition to the
foregoing, where there is a change of direction in the location-line as marked on the ground,
the number ' 1' shall be written on the initial post; the number ' 2 ' shall be written on the
intermediate post; and the number ' 3 ' shall be written on the final post. There also shall be
affixed to the initial post a notice to the following effect, namely: ' Application will be made
under the " Placer-mining Act" for a lease of the ground within this location.'
"(3.) The location-line shall at the time of location be marked between the legal posts
throughout its length so that it can be distinctly seen; in a timbered locality, by blazing trees
and cutting underbrush, and in a locality where there is neither timber nor underbrush, by
placing legal posts or monuments of earth or stones not less than two feet high and not less
than two feet in diameter at the base, so that the location-line can be distinctly seen.
"(4.) Where, from the nature or shape of the surface of the ground, it is impracticable to
mark the location-line of a leasehold as provided by this section, the leasehold may be located
by placing legal posts as witness-posts, as near as possible to the location-line, and writing on
each witness-post the distance and compass-bearing of some designated point on the location-
line from the witness-post; and the distances and compass-bearing so written on the witness-
posts shall be set out in the application for the lease and in any lease granted thereon. A 44
REPORT OF THE MINISTER OF MINES, 1938.
"(5.)   The locator shall, within thirty days after the date of the location, post a notice in
Form I in the office of the Mining Recorder, which notice shall set out:—
"(a.)  The name of the intending applicant or each applicant if more than one, and
the numbers of their free miners' certificates:
"(6.)  The date of the location:
"(c.) The number of feet lying to the right and left of the location-line, and the
approximate area or size of the ground.
The words written on the initial post and final post shall be set out in full in the notice; and
as accurate a description as possible of the ground to be acquired shall be given, having
special reference to any prior locations it may join, and the general locality of the ground
to be acquired."

Another provision is that there must be affixed to the " initial post" and to the " final
post" a numbered metal identification tag furnished by the Mining Recorder with each free
miner's certificate issued. These tags may be attached to the posts, or placed in a container
within a cairn, either at the time of location or some time during the succeeding year, but THE MINING INDUSTRY. A 45
must be so placed before the Mining Recorder will grant the first certificate of work in respect
of the leasehold.
The annual rental on a placer-mining lease is $30, and the amount to be expended
annually on development-work is $250.
Authority also has been given for the granting of special placer-mining leases in locations
other than has been defined.

Provisional Free Miners' Certificates (Placer) Act.
This Act provides for the issuance of " provisional free miners' certificates " for the
locating, recording, representing, and working of placer claims of a size, and according to
the terms, and in the manner set out in Parts II. and III. of the " Placer-mining Act." Any
person over 18 years of age who has resided in the Province continuously for a period of not
less than six months prior to date of his application may, on application accompanied by a
statutory declaration or other satisfactory evidence as to his age and period of residence
in the Province, obtain from any Gold Commissioner or Mining Recorder a provisional free
miner's certificate. No fees are payable in respect of such certificate, and it abolishes the
fees payable in respect of the recording or rerecording of placer claims, but no record or
rerecord of a claim shall be granted for a longer period than one year without the payment
of fees. It should be pointed out that the provisional free miner's certificate does not carry
the privileges of an ordinary free miner's certificate as to the staking and working of placer-
mining leases or mineral claims.
The Act also gives the Lieutenant-Governor in Council, as a means of unemployment
relief, power to make provision for the establishment, equipment, maintenance, and operation
of one or more placer training camps at suitable locations, at which unemployed persons who
hold provisional free miners' certificates and are British subjects may acquire knowledge and
training in the art of placer-mining and may be afforded gainful work in the recovery of
minerals by placer-mining. Reserves for the location of such camps shall not exceed one
mile in length by one-half mile in width, and the right is given to enter into agreements with
private holders under the Act for the development of their ground by means of unemployment
relief camps.
Department of Mines Act, 1937.
The " Department of Mines Act" empowers the Minister of Mines to organize the Department or to reorganize it from time to time to meet changing conditions in the mining industry.
It provides for examination and certification of assayers; for the conducting of short courses
of lectures in practical geology and mineralogy; and for the purchase of ore from the Provincial sampling plants.    The said Act also provides for the expenditure of public moneys A 46 REPORT OF THE MINISTER OF MINES, 1938.
for the construction, reconstruction, or repair of trails, roads, and bridges to facilitate the
exploration of the mineral resources of any mining district, or in the operation and development of any mining property.
Iron and Steel Bounties Act, 1929.
The Lieutenant-Governor in Council may enter into an agreement with any person
whereby the Crown will pay to that person, out of the Consolidated Revenue Fund, bounties
on pig-iron and steel shapes when manufactured within the Province, as follows:—
(a.)  In respect of pig-iron manufactured from ore, on the proportion produced from
ore mined in the Province, a bounty not to exceed three dollars per ton of two
thousand pounds:
(6.)  In respect of pig-iron manufactured from ore, on the proportion produced from
ore mined outside the Province, a bounty not to exceed one dollar and fifty cents
per ton of two thousand pounds:
(c.)  In respect of steel shapes of commercial utility manufactured in the Province,
a bounty not to exceed one dollar per ton of two thousand pounds.
Bounty, as on pig-iron under this Act, may be paid upon the molten iron from ore which
in the electric furnace, Bessemer or other furnace, enters into the manufacture of steel by
the process employed in such furnace;   the weight of such iron to be ascertained from the
weight of the steel so manufactured.
Bounty on steel shapes under this Act shall be paid only upon such steel shapes as are
manufactured in a rolling-mill having a rated productive capacity per annum of at least
twenty thousand tons of two thousand pounds per ton.
Metalliferous Mines Regulation Act.
At the 1935 session of the Provincial Legislature " An Act to amend and consolidate the
Enactments regulating the Working of Metalliferous Mines, Quarries, and Metallurgical
Works " was passed. This Act is known as the " Metalliferous Mines Regulation Act," and,
in its general tone, its clear purpose is to maintain the highest standard in respect of safety
and of healthy conditions, both on the surface and underground in mining operations. The
idea is to not only assure, as far as practicable, the protection of workmen against injury,
but to establish those conditions best calculated to safeguard the health of the men employed.
The Act also provides for the drafting of regulations, if such are found necessary, for the
protection of men who are working under conditions which may lead to pulmonary disability.
This Act may be divided into six parts, as follows:—
(1.)   Administration:
(2.)  Duties of owners, managers, and others:
(3.)   Special Rules for protection of miners:
(4.) General Rules, having reference to: (a) Employees; (6) Ventilation; (c) Explosives and blasting; (d) Fire-protection; (e) Connection between mines; (/)
Mine signals; (g) Aid to injured; (h) Prevention of dust; (i) Handling of
water; (j) Sanitation; (k) Protection of working-places, shafts, winzes, raises,
etc.; (I) Ladder-ways; (m) Shaft equipment and operation; (n) Testing of
brakes; (o) Haulage; (p) Protection from machinery; (q) Electrical installations :
(5.) General Rules for quarries:
(6.)   Supplemental. THE MINING INDUSTRY. A 47
SUMMARY OF ACTS SPECIALLY RELATING TO MINING.
(The complete Acts may be obtained from the King's Printer, Victoria, B.C.)
Mining Licences under the Coal and Petroleum Act.
Any person desiring to prospect for coal, petroleum, or natural gas upon any unsurveyed
unreserved lands in which these resources are held by the Crown may acquire a licence to do
so over a rectangular block of land not exceeding 640 acres, of which the boundaries shall
run due north and south and east and west, and no side shall exceed 80 chains (1 mile) in
length. Before entering into possession of the said lands he shall place at the corner of such
block a legal stake, or initial post, and shall inscribe thereon his name and the angle represented by such post, thus: " A. B.'s N.E. corner," or as the case may be, and shall post in a
conspicuous place upon the said land, and also in the Government office of the land recording
district, notice of his intention to apply, as well as publishing the same in the B.C. Gazette
and local newspaper once each week for four consecutive weeks. If the area applied for is
surveyed no staking is required, but the same procedure with regard to advertising notice
of intention to apply is necessary.
The application for said licence shall be in writing, in duplicate, and shall contain the
best written description possible, with a diagram of the land sought to be acquired, and shall
be accompanied with a fee of $100. The application shall be made to the Commissioner of
Lands for the district, within sixty days from date of first publication in B.C. Gazette, and
by him forwarded to the Minister of Lands, who will grant such licence—provided no reasons
arise to the contrary—for a period not to exceed one year, and at the expiration of the first
year an extension of such licence may be granted for a second or third year at a fee of $100.
Where coal is discovered during the existence of licence or within thirty days after
expiration, the land held under licence, having been surveyed and licence conditions fulfilled,
may be leased for five years at rental of 15 cents an acre, subject to renewals for five successive periods of three years each, renewal fee being $100 for each lease, in addition to
annual rental.
Lessees, on showing continuous work has been done and reasonable expenditure made for
development, may, after carrying out the provisions of the lease, purchase at $20 per acre
where surface is available, or $15 per acre for under-surface rights where surface is not
available. Lands under the sea may be purchased at $15 per acre. Provided also that, in
addition to the rental or purchase price, there shall be paid to the Government as a royalty
2V2 cents a barrel (35 imperial gallons) of crude petroleum raised or gotten from such land.
(See chapter 175, R.S.B.C. 1936.)
Taxation Act.
A preliminary note is essential to the understanding of this Act. As the law has stood,
a Crown-granted mineral claim on which taxes were in arrears for a number of years was
offered for sale by the Government at a tax sale, with arrears of taxes plus interest and
charges and Crown-grant fees as an upset price. If no sale was made the property remained
in the hands of the Assessor until desired by some one, when it could only be purchased by
tender. It was not open to location under the " Mineral Act " and a prospector had no
protection, and to relieve the situation an amending Act was passed.
Under the amended Act such reverted Crown-granted mineral claim may be obtained by
any person under a lease for one year upon payment of $25, and a renewal of such lease
may be granted upon payment of further $25 for a further period of one year, but no longer.
During the period of such lease the lessee has the right to enter, prospect, and mine on such
mineral claim, save for coal, petroleum, and natural gas, and during such time the lessee
has the option to purchase such Crown-granted mineral claim upon payment of all taxes,
costs, and interest which remained due and unpaid on such claim on the date of its forfeiture
to the Crown, together with an amount equal to all taxes and interest which, except for its
forfeiture to the Crown, would have been payable in respect thereof from the date of the
lease to the date of application for a Crown grant. If, however, the lessee establishes to the
satisfaction of the Gold Commissioner that he has expended upon the claim in mining-
development work a sum of not less than $200 a year during the continuance of the lease,
then the payment of the sum in respect of taxes and penalties from the date of the lease to A 48 REPORT OF THE MINISTER OF MINES, 1938.
the date of application for a Crown grant shall not be required. Provision also is made for
the grouping of adjoining claims, not exceeding eight in number, and the performing on one
of such claims mining-development work for all of the claims.
A person may obtain a lease, or interest in a lease, of eight such claims in the same
mining division.
Such leases are not transferable and are subject to the rights any person may already
hold to any portion of the surface of such Crown-granted mineral claim.
Taxation of Mines.
Crown-granted mineral claims are subject to a tax of 25 cents per acre. The tax becomes
due on April 1st in each year, and if unpaid on the following June 30th is deemed to be
delinquent.
All mines, other than coal, are subject to an output tax (payable quarterly) of 2 per
cent, on gross value of mineral, less cost of transportation from mine to reduction-works and
the cost of treating same at reduction-works or on the mining premises.
Any such mine, not realizing on ore shipments a market value of $5,000 in any one year,
is entitled to a refund of the output tax paid.
All mines are subject to a tax upon income, subject to the exemptions and allowances
given in the " Income Tax Act "; provided, in the case of those mines paying an output tax,
that an income tax is only collected if such tax prove greater than the output tax, and the
output tax is then regarded as part payment of the income tax.
In addition to the ordinary working expenses, mines are allowed to deduct from their
income a charge for:—
(1.) Development—being such proportion of this capital expenditure as is ascertained to be chargeable to the year's operation:
(2.)  Depreciation of buildings and plant:
(3.)   Depletion—being such proportion of the capital cost of the mine as, being a
wasting asset, is ascertained to be chargeable to the year's operation.
The above-mentioned charges are allowable at the discretion of the Minister of Finance,
subject, however, to an appeal to the Lieutenant-Governor in Council.
The rate of income tax varies from 1 per cent, up to a maximum of 10 per cent, on
incomes of $19,000 and over.
Coal is subject to a tax of 10 cents per ton of 2,240 lb., except coal shipped to coke-ovens
within the Province.     Tax payable monthly.
Coke is subject to a tax of 10 cents per ton of 2,240 lb., except in respect of coke produced from coal upon which this tax has already been paid.    Tax payable monthly.
Coal land from which coal is being mined (Class A) is taxed at 1 per cent, upon the
assessed value, in addition to any other tax.
Unworked coal land, known as " Coal Land, Class B," is subject to a tax of 2 per cent,
upon the assessed value.
' For further particulars see the " Taxation Act," also the " Public Schools Act," which
are obtainable from the King's Printer, Victoria, B.C. THE MINING INDUSTRY. A 49
ASSAY OFFICE.
by
D. E. Whittaker.
During the year 1938 there were made by the staff in the Assay Office, 7,100 assays or
quantitative determinations and 1,574 analyses;   of these the majority were for the Department of Mines or for the other departments, for which no fees were received.
The fees collected by the office were as follows:—■
Fees for analyses  $82.00
Fees for assaying  147.00
Fees for assayers' examinations  480.00
Total cash receipts      $709.00
Determinations and examinations made for other Government departments, for which no fees were collected:—
Attorney-General's Department   $545.00
Agricultural Department   1,630:00
Board of Health   1,085.00
Treasury  2,397.00
Forest Branch   385.00
Other departments   135.00
$6,177.00
Value of work done outside of Mines Department work— $6,886.00
Two thousand three hundred and ninety-seven lots of gold were received from the Gold
Commissioners, who are purchasing amounts up to 2 oz. to aid the prospector in disposing
of his gold.
FREE DETERMINATIONS.
In addition to the above quantitative work, 419 qualitative determinations, or tests, were
made in connection with the identification and classification of rocks or minerals sent to the
Assay Office for a report; for these no fees were charged, as it is the established custom of
the Department to examine and test qualitatively, without charge, samples of minerals sent
in from any part of the Province, and to give a report on the same. This has been done for
the purpose of encouraging the search for new or rare minerals and ores, and to assist prospectors and others in the discovery of new mining districts, by enabling them to have determined, free of cost, the nature and probable value of any rock they may find. In making
these free determinations, the Department asks that the locality from which the sample was
obtained be given by the sender.
EXAMINATIONS FOR ASSAYERS.
The writer has the honour, as Secretary, to submit the Annual Report for the year 1938
of the Board of Examiners for Certificates of Competency and Licence to practise Assaying
in British Columbia, as established under the " Department of Mines Act, 1937."
A meeting of the Board of Examiners was held on May 16th, June 21st, and December
22nd. Five candidates applied for examination on April 25th and four passed the examination. Six candidates applied for examination on May 9th and all passed the examination.
Three candidates applied for examination on June 6th and all passed. Five candidates applied
for examination on November 28th and all passed the examination. Three candidates applied
for exemption under the Act and were granted certificates. A 50
