Footnotes ...

<1>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Bever Mines) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Bever Mines. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Bever Mines
