A DECIDED improvement iii mining matters in thia district bas taten place (luria» the lust lew weeks :-The Alluvial Lead in the basalt country at Flaggy Creek has begun to look up again. The G rand Junction has been washing oat good tin from the ground already opened, and, froiu the. prospects,, will have a;. large body of payable wash to work out.. Tbe Carriers Claim, as it is called, has turned oat some good tin lately, and on the whole, from the Terr decided manner in which the holders of the other claims are sticking to their ground, it may be expected that before loni some of them will get on to parable dirt.

Johnstone River Rush. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 25 December 1884

Johnstone Hirer Rash. VEST little further news of importance has been received from the North Johnstone River with regard to the gold discovery. From a reliable source we learn that good prospects are to be obtained all along the river, which improve to a more sbotty char- acter as the river is traced towards its source. The present principal workings are situated on Katie Creek, about 13 miles as the crow flies from Geraldton, through dense scrub which is impassable without cutting a road. To do jthis a slight detour would have to be made to avoid swampy ground, which would increase the distance a trifle. At present the sole means of communication is hy the river, which is navigable only to ¿Ut twttnsaeli fcnate.; -a?»«asti tkmfNKlb sweat dUtenlties; the boata having to be QI loaded SO to 40> times in order to Ta- the Rapids.
