PREFACE.

The design of this publication is to present in a convenient and comprehensive form the Mining Laws of the United States, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona, together with such comments and directions by the compiler and constructions of the Courts and the Land Office as will make plain to all readers the provisions of the Statutes.

The notes are the result of a careful study of the law relating to mines, combined with the author's practical observations in some of the principal mining districts of Colorado.

The index at the end has been made quite full and will be found useful for easy reference.

DENVER, September 1st, 1881.
