U.S. Supreme Court
Silver King Co. v. Conkling Co., 256 U.S. 18 (1921)
Silver King Coalition Mines Company
v. Conkling Mining Company
Petition for rehearing
Decided April 11, 1921
256 U.S. 18
CERTIORARI TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE EIGHTH CIRCUIT
2. Within the intent of the mining law, Rev.Stats., § 2322, with respect to the right to pursue a vein extralaterally on its dip, those are the "end lines" of a lode location that cut across the strike of the vein if it crosses the location. P. 256 U. S. 25.
3. A presumption that there was a discovery vein crossing the end lines of a location as laid out should not be indulged, for the purpose of denying extralateral rights to a vein crossing the side lines, where there is substantial evidence that this was the only vein apexing within the location, and no substantial evidence to the contrary. P. 256 U. S. 26.
