"The purpose of this thesis is to relate in as clear and concise a manner as possible the way "things are done" in practice as observed by myself during my two years' experience as sampler and assistant geologist to the Cananea Consolidated copper Co. of Cananea, Sonora, Mexico. My work took me to all the mines, and in this way I was able to accurately observe the sampling, system of mining, geology, etc. of this famous and important camp" – p. 1.
