Alaska Placer Mining Slumps When a most unfortunate effect of the de Veterans Leave Field. cline in gold in Alaska, especially in placer mining, is the discouragement of the prospector. Though many 'prospectors devote their attention to the search for copper and other min erals, they as a class are held to their vocation by the hope of finding rich plaicers which they can develop by in dividual effort. The loss of 900 mer to the placer mining industry means the loss of an equal number of at least potential prospectors. Many prospectors have been drawn away from Alaska by 'the high wages and good business opportunities which the war conditions have created in the states. It is indeed no longer neces sary to go to Alaska to obtain high wages. As a consequence probably half, possibly three-quarters AJoaka prospectors have During 39 years of mining Alaska has produced gold to the value of $311,000,000 and $218, 000,000 of this amount Is to be cred ited to her placer mines.
