MINING INTELLIGENCE. CASSILIS COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 February 1914
MINING INTELLIGENCE, CASSILIS COMPANY. With the aid of a Govertunent loan of £4000, the directors of the Cas silis oompany are pushing on develop ment work. The policy of the board embraces sinking the main shaft, and the extension of No. 5 level to a point opposite the Ceresa lode, where a crosscut will be put in to cut the lode 100 feet deeper than the lowest level, viz., 400 feet. The stone going under foot in this level was of good value. It is pointed out by tnhe directors that the Government "does not contribute towards hauling and surface expenses, and only advances half of the actual cost of driving and sinking."' While working with full power, the limited output from the bottom levels has not paid these expenses. The 2027 tons of ore milled during the half year ended 3rd February averaged 6% dwt. gola per ton, the proceeds being £2660. Owing to the continued drought, the company's "power" has failed since December last, but the manager has kept No. 5 level going by hand lab...
