"The Lethbridge Mining District lies about 50 miles north of the International Boundary and approximately 280 miles north of Great Falls, Montana. The country is rolling prairie with deeply cut river vallies sic and is practically treeless except for a few willows along the river bottoms. The rainfall is moderate but the climate is severe; the summers being short and hot while temperatures of -50 degrees F. are not uncommon during the long winters. On account of the severe winters and the scarcity of timber there is a good market for coal during the entire year as it is the only domestic fuel available. Transportation facilities are good, there being three transcontinental railway systems with numerous branches operating in the Province"--Location, Page 3.
