INTRODUCTION.

This book is divided into four parts as follows: Part I. consists of a Manual of Mineral Land Law of the United States, being a brief treatise upon the rights acquired by location, entry and patenting of public mineral lands, with a description of the various steps in the acquisition of title, with numerous citations. Those who wish a reference to all of the decisions upon the various points of this branch of the law, are referred to the Mineral Law Digest, compiled by the authors hereof, and published by the publishers of this book.

Part II. comprises the Mineral Land Statutes, with latest regulations thereunder, prescribed by the Department of the Interior..

Part III. is a set of forms for use in relation to the acquisition and transfer of title to mining claims, prepared by those whose aggregate experience in the handling of cases arising under the mineral land laws extends over thirty years. This part includes a Glossary of mining terms in general use.

Part IV. deals with Alaska and the Klondike region, their geographical and climatic features, traveled routes, mineral deposits and mining industries, Federal statutes and regulations having especial application to Alaska and the mining regulations of the Canadian Provinces, North West Territory, British Columbia, and Yukon District.

The information contained in this division has been drawn almost entirely from official sources, reports of government explorers, of the Governors of Alaska and other officials.

The subject of outfitting and transportation is also here treated.

Bound with the book, as a part of this division, is a map of Alaska and the Klondike, compiled from the latest government publications.
