George Prudham (Minister of Mines and Technical Surveys)

Liberal

Mr. Prudham:

None. On February 15, 1950, a request was made by the government geologist of Newfoundland for an airborne magnetometer survey of a section of Newfoundland south of Notre Dame bay. It was impossible at that time, because of the limited facilities available, to accede to that request. There has been no further request of this nature from the province of Newfoundland.

As there is only one federal government airborne instrument for all Canada, and as surveying by this method is still in the experimental stage, there has been no attempt to make surveys of this kind by

provinces. However, special attention is being given to geological regions where it is thought that the experiment will be most effective.

Mr. Claxton:

No. The hon. member for Cumberland has been good enough to terminate the third part of the question with the word "properties". The words "for (a) equipment; (b) administration and operation; (c) total expenditures, to date" will be omitted. With that understanding, the question would stand as an order for return.
