Tasmania [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 16 October 1880

Tasmania THOSE who run away With the idea that all the auriferous and stanniferous wealth, of the colonies lies on the Victorian side of Bass's Straits, have made an egregious error. way botwixt Victoria and Now. Zoaland there lies tho island known ori tho mops as Tasmania, known more familiarly'to old oolonists as Van Dioman's Land, or, again, as Tasman's Land. Tasmania Bonds many boautiful and valued exhibits.. For mr stance, sho shows nt a ? glanco that eho oan produce coal, gold, iron, and tin. With regard to tho threb .former, sho may bo in doubt as to tho quantities.; I but sho has no doubt, certainly, as to tho I latter. It may bo presumed fairly that, of all | our stanniforous regions—and tho' oolonios havo many of them—Tasmania is motherland of tin. It is some years since attention was first called to tho riches of Mount Bisohoff in that respect, but this was simply a rock formation, although of groat value. Prospooting from tho foot of tho Mount on to the flats, what is kn...
