On this last point, see the rash of publications which appeared after the First World War: e.g., George Otis Smith, ed., The Strategy of Minerals: A Study of the Mineral Factor in the World Position of America in War and Peace (New York: D. Appelton 1919); C.K. Leith, World Minerals and World Politics: A Factual Study of Minerals in Their Political and International Relations (New York: McGraw-Hill 1931); and G.A. Roush, Strategic Mineral Supplies (New York: McGraw-Hill 1939).

Chapter 1 : The Context of Discovery
1
For ease of reading, 'British Columbia' will be used hereafter to describe the territory which became the province in 1871.
2
For a thorough discussion of this topic, see Richard Somerset Mackie, 'Colonial Land, Indian Labour and Company Capital: The Economy of Vancouver Island, 1849-1858,' M.A. thesis, University of Victoria 1984.

For an excellent case study, see Keith Ralston, 'Patterns of Trade and Investment on the Pacific Coast, 1867-1892: The Case of the British Columbia Salmon Canning Industry,' BC Studies 1 (Winter 1968-9):37-45.

I have recycled the phrase 'the world rushed in' from J.S. Holliday's fascinating book on the California gold rush, entitled The World Rushed In: The California Gold Rush Experience (New York: Simon & Schuster 1981). For a discussion of the diffusion of mining techniques from California mentioned in this paragraph, see Rodman Wilson Paul, "'Old Californians" in British Gold Fields,' Huntington Library Quarterly 17 (1954):161-72.
