DISCUSSION; ON MINING COAL UNDER THE SEA IN NOVA SCOTIA

MR. F. W. GRAY: It is not my intention to read my paper as it is too long, so I will touch only on the high lights. The Sydney field is the most favourable example of undersea coal mining that exists, and I have not been able to find anything like it elsewhere. The nearest approach to it is a field in England where the Whitehaven collieries are operating, but it has a lot of faults.
