THE Empire Mining and Metallurgical Congress, to be held at the Exhibition at Wembley on June 3-June 6, is the first “all British “function of its kind, although its promoters hope that from time to time other similar congresses will be held, and that the Empire Council of Mining and Metallurgical Institutions, which is to be created as the outcome of the Congress, will become a permanent and influential professional body. The objects of the Conference cover, as a matter of fact, much more than the mere reading and discussion of papers. Occasion has been taken of the opportunity afforded by the British Empire Exhibition to invite the co-operation of all the most important mining and metallurgical institutions in the Dominions and in India to meet together to discuss such important questions of mutual interest as the mineral resources of the Empire and their development, the promotion of technical efficiency, and the vital if vexed question of professional status.
