RLHIAROINU ASSUSSMUNT WORK.
An Opinion Regarding Assessment
Work On Mining Claims.
Portland, Ore, Oct. 30, 1901.
K. J. Hard, Esq., Sec. Oregon
Wining Exchange, l'oitland, Ore.
Dear Sir I am in receipt of yo-ir I
letter ofthc 11th Inst, nskinji, for
the use of the Oregon Mining Ex-
change, an opinion on the follow
"Will annual assessment work,
done on one leilge which runs
through part only of a group of
claims, be counted as assessment
work on the other claims of the
same group upon which arc other
ledges, the group being owned by
In answer I beg to say that if
the work done on the first ledge
tends to develop the ledges 011 the
other claims, it will be counted as
work done for the benefit of nil thej
claims of the group. Ami whether!
the work tends to develop the other
claims is a question of feat to be de-
tcrmiued from the circumstances. I
It Is easy to imagine a case in I
which the work done on one claim :
could not be considered as tending
to benefit another. For cxamplvU
11 a group 01 claims arc siiuaieo on
cither side of a deep gulch, with
. . . ... . .
the ledges 011 both sides iiititiiugj
parallel wiin llie guicn, nun a tun
nel is driven at the bottom of the
bill upon one side, and at right
angles with the gulch, for the pur
pose of tapping the ledges on that
side, the work could not possibly
be said to develop the ledges on
the opposite side.
II, 011 the other hand, the claims
are all so situated upon elevated
ground that from 0110 tunnel the,
ledges ot all the claims could be It will ! running to ltx full i-npmlty
tappetlbyaysjcra Lpf crQS4CllttijU.'tiof iS.UUOto Kn.tW feet dully which
audit is the intention mid purpose will " U lurrvnwd In the uprliiK to
01 lite owner to so woric uie mine,
it is clear that work done 01: this
system will tend to develop, and
will be coutitcd is work, 011 the en
I find the decisions of the courts
uniform on this question. In the
case of St Louis Smelting Co. v
Kemp, 104 U. S. 636, Mr. Justice
Fields, speaking for the supreme
court of the United States, says:
"Labor and improvements, within
the meaning of the statute, arc
deemed to hnve been had on n min
ing claim, whether it consists of
one location or several, where the
labor is performed or the improve
ments are made for its develop
ment; that is, to facilitate the ex
traction of the metal it may contain;
though, in fact, such labor and im
provements may be on ground
which iriginally constituted only
one of the claims, as in sinking' a
shaft, or be at a distance from the
claim itself, as where the labor is
performed for the turning of a
stream, or the introduction of water,
or where the improvement consists
in the construction of a flume to
carry off the debris or waste ma
terial. It would be absurd to re
quire a shaft to be sunk 011 each lo
cation 011 n consolidated claim,
when one shaft would suffice for all
In the case of Jupiter Mining Co.
v. Hodie Mining Co., 11 Fed 666,
the federal court for the district of
California says: "Where otie per
son or company owns several coll-'
tiguous or adjoining claims capable
of being advantageously worked
together, one general system may
"be adopted to work such claim.
Such system may consist of a shaft
-with drifts, cross-cuts, and tunnels
therefrom, mid such works need
not be upon any of the claims in
question, When such system is
adopted, work in furtherance of the
system is work on the claims in
tended to be developed by it.
Work done outside of the claims,
or outside of any claim, if done for
the purpose nud as the means of
prospecting or working the claim,
is as available for holding theeluim
as if done within the boundaries of
the claim itself."
In Hook v. Justice M. Co. 58
Fed., 107, the court held that the
running of a tunnel for the pur
pose of prospecting, developing and
working two separate claims owned
bv the same persons, though partly
outside of both claims, is to be
credited to both and il the neces
aary amount of work is done it is
a sufficient compliance with the
In Chambers v. Harrington in
U. S. 350, the supreme court of the
United States held that where sev
eral adjoining claims are held in
common and worked for the bene
fit of all, work done upon any one
ot them in a given year, to an
atiount equal to that required to
,e done upon nil in that year, meet-.
tlic rcouiremcnli of Hie United
'States statutes pint-idinc; for an 1111
mini assessment work.
Many other enses might lc cited,
hut Section 2314 of Ihe rcvNed
statute, of the United States seems
to lie conclusive of this question,
This section was amended Kehtu
nry nth. 1875, "so that where n
person or company has or may run
a tunnel for the purpose of devel-
oping n lode or lodes, owned by
said person or company, the money
so expended In said tunnel shall he
taken and considered as expended
on said lode or lodes, whether lo
cated prior to or since the passage
of said act; and such person or com
pany shall not be required to er
iorm work 011 the surface of said
lode or lodes in order to hold the
same as required by said act." (Sec
Hook v. Justice Mining Co. 58 bed.
It is obvious, therefore, that
work prosecuted under a system
intended and as it means for the dc
velopuieut of nil the claims of the
group, whether it is done on a
Iclge or not, or even outside the
houmlarici of the claims, if equal
to that required to be done upon all
the claims is a sulhcicut compll
mice with the provisions of the
mining laws of the United States.
