Description

Excerpt from The New Mining Regulations for the Empire of China, Sanctioned by Imperial Rescript 17th March 1902: Together With a Short Criticism on Them and a Proposed New Mineral Mining Law for the Empire of China When in the early part of this year the Department of Railways and Mines presented a memorial to the throne for alteration of the Mining Regulations then in force, it was thought by many that a strong board would be appointed, which would include some specially chosen foreigners well up in mining law, and that a practical set of rules could be got together which would benefit both state and individual by the opening up of unexploited ground and winning minerals lying therein. N ever were we m ore surprised when, instead of a practical set of Rules which most of us expected, an Imperial Edict dated 17th March, sanctioned the present new regulations, which, should the conditions remain un altered, will prevent auv mineral mining in ('hina on the part of foreigners. It is not my object to criticise each clause of the regulations, as most of the chief objections are clear to everyone.
