Additional Information From the Colton Storm catalogue: "Apparently the first separate printing of this notable law. The Senate Committee on Mines and Mining Interests reported on the Act on February 23, 1866 and the Legislature adjourned on March first. The present Act was passed. Nevada's mining laws, because of the effectiveness of Senator William M Stewart's arguments, exerted a considerable effect on Federal mining laws after 1866."
