May 15, 1925

Mr. HUMPHREY:

I am not just dear

on this question of testing or treating ores. Would the minister explain the procedure in regard to testing a shipment of ore coming to headquarters at Ottawa? Have the department had any requests in regard to furnishing assays of ores that are sent in?

Mr. HUMPHREY:

If the prospectors of

British Columbia are not taking advantage of this offer it cannot be a very useful proposition. I would suggest that there be some investigation or looking into the question of why the prospectors are not taking advantage of this offer of free transportation for samples of ore. I refer to the construction of the ore dressing or ore testing plant.

Mr. HUMPHREY:

I would urge on the

minister something along that line. Considering that the old prospector is passing away,

I think something should be done to create an interest for the prospector and making it worth his while to go out and prospect for minerals. Conditions are such to-day, on account of the increased expense, that I believe it is worthy of every consideration this government or any government can give it. Further assistance could be given to these men, either by way of bonus or some other means, to encourage the prospector-and especially the old time prospector-to go into the field. These old timers are amongst the best prospectors we have."
