The first step is to have a careful mining survey made,
for hitherto none has been attempted; the geological survey,
about which more hereafter, was made from surface indications
only, and from such mining information or traditions as the
officers couid collect. For the preparation of a mining survey
it is essential to make expensive boring operations, in such
localities as may be advised by our mining experts, and for
this diamond-drills and a large sum of money is necessary.
