Nickel for the World. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 21 August 1914
HIckel for the World. In the Copper Cliff mine, near Sud bury, Canada, it is said mo re nickel is being produced than the entire market of the world calls for at current prices. A little branch railway off „the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway, four miles in length, leads out to the mine, which opens iuto the face ol a crag of the brown, oxidized" Lauren tiati rock' characteristic of this - region. The miners are now at work at a depth of about 300 feet below the surface. As fast as the nickel and copper-bear ing rock is hoisled out it is broken up and piled upon long beds or ricks ol pine wood, to be calcined, or roasted, for the pureose of driving out the sul -ghur which it contains. The roasting process is of the nature of lime-kilning or charcoal-burning. Eaoh great bed of ore requires from one to two months to roast, When roasted the rook goes to the principal smelter, a powerful blast furnace, "jaoketed"—in mining phtase-^-with running water to enable it to sustain th...
SHIRE ENTERPRISES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 21 August 1914
SHIRE ENTERPRISES. TO THI5 EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE j Sis,—The shire couucil has given us on.e "white elephant," and. now it appears ' that we are to have another. JNo 1 is the weighbridge.. I ha^.e been waiting to j learn, from the reports of the couucil I what the weighbridge has cost up to date. The revenue, I believe, is very small, for the simple reason that the produce is not in the district. The question is why was it got at all ? No 'I is the proposal to get up corporation shire yards. It was said, at the meeting of the shire council, that the people of G-isborne, or the dis trict, had to take their cattle away to sell them. What is the matter with the sale yards now at G-isborne, and the monthly sales to which people come from long distances ? If this is going to be a second weighbridge affair, I think it would be best to leave well enough alone. We have got one "white elephant" we do not want two. -Yours, etc., EATEPAYEE.
