She also spoke of the gold and silver locality over the boundary line in British Columbia. She described the placer mining for gold in the Caribou District of British Columbia, and mentioned the valuable lode district of southeastern British Columbia as furnishing many specimens of minerals.

Among the minerals described and illustrated by specimens were gold, pyrargyrite, fluorite, cassiterite, galena, cerussite, siderite and molybdenite.
