(148 Fed. 799.)


(Circuit Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit. October 22, 1906.)

No. 1,295.


The object of the law in requiring a discovery to precede the location of a mining claim is to insure good faith on the part of the locator and prerent frauds upon the government, and to constitute a discovery which will support the location of a gold placer claim as against another inineral claimant it is not necessary that gold should have been found thereon in paying quantity, but there must have been such a discovery of gold as gives reasonable evidence that the ground is valuable for placer mining,

taking into consideration its character, location, and surroundings. 1 2. SANE.

Plaintiff located certain gold placer mining claims along a creek in Alaska, and before doing so washed on each a few pans of the sediment deposited along the sides of the creek, and in each found small particles or colors of gold. Placer gold in paying quantities had been found on the bed rock on a tributary to the creek, and within a mile of such locations, and the bed rock at the place of the locations was from 125 to 150 feet below the surface. Plaintiff and other experienced miners testified that the gold found was sufficient to reasonably justify the investment of money to sink shafts. Held, that there was a sufficient discovery to support the locations as against another mineral claimant.
