Mr. Gibson (Hamilton West):

Abasand Oils Limited was wound up and during the period before it was finally wound up the company had maintained equipment and property on the location at a cost of $85,000. When the government took over the property it was felt that the company should be compensated for the maintenance costs incurred during that period.

Mr. Gibson (Hamilton West):

It does not have to be done over again once it has been done in a certain area, unless it is a different type of survey. We are doing a great deal of air photography and mapping in the Northwest Territories over land that up to the present has never been properly mapped.

Mr. Gibson (Hamilton West):

These are expensive undertakings. We have been doing a great deal of survey work trying to catch up with the work we were unable to do during the war. These include all types of surveying, geodetic, topographical, hydrographic, geological, and so on in various parts of Canada. During the past year we have had more parties out than for a good many years, in an endeavour to get ahead with the mapping of this country.
