Mr. ALFRED THOMPSON:
How is this bounty fund administered, as to when and where the bounty is paid? I ask this question because at present we have some very promising silver-lead properties in the Yukon, and they are just beginning to ship the ore. I do not know what percentage of lead this ore contains, but I believe it is pretty high. For the information of the people in the Yukon interested in that industry, I would be glad if the minister would tell us how this bounty money is paid, whether at the mine or at the smelter or when the lead is smelted.
