Issue Date: 1883-11-15
Citation: Ohio Mining Journal, vol. 2, no. 1 (November 15, 1883), 23-28.
Abstract: The legislatures of Illinois and Colorado have recently enacted laws providing for the inspection of mines. An important feature of these new mining codes is the provision of the law requiring all applicants for the position of Mine Inspector to appear before a Board of Examiners, pass a satisfactory examination and receive a certificate of competency in order to be eligible for the office. The law of Illinois divides the State into five districts, in each of which a District Inspector is to be appointed.
Description: Includes full lists of questions for two examinations in Illinois.
