over or through the property of
others for mining purposes is de

special legislation of the several

however, can not be cut off by
a junior. Mining aud Scientific

Prior Location Hold Cross Veins.
In a case where veins cross, each
owned by separate locators, the senior
locator takes not only the vein upon
which he has made bis location, but
also all other lodea or veins found
within his surface boundaries, in
cluding the cross lode subsequently
located by another. A junior cross-
lode locator has no right to any ore
found upon the cross vein within the
boundaries of a seuior claim. The
owner of a junior tunnel site cannot
by means of a crosscut tunnel pene
trate within the bounding planes of a
senior location for any purpose.

lougs to the senior locator, and the
