TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 16 April 1896
TO THE EDITOR. SIR?,--e my letter of yesterday appearing in this morning's issue, showing the results of the recent crushings from the Golden Zone Mine, I notice that the following pas sage is open to convey a very different im pression than it was intended to, viz.: "The assays were made by Mr A. J. " MacGeorge, and I consider are about right " in the first instance, but I think some error "has occurred in the last assay. The assays "may be right as far as the amount of gold in "each parcel is concerned, but probably the " numbers of the assays have been confused.' The first two lines are liable to allow the ordinary reader to imagine that the assays as made are not perfectly correct, while, as a matter of fact, they are absolutely exact. What is meant by *'The assays . .. are about right" is that the result is about what I expected it would be. In referring to the latter assays, I mention that " probably the numbers of the assays have been confused." I must, in fairness to Mr MacG...

TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-Mr Hancock, in his letter appearing in your issue of to-day, says he has proved the correctness of his statement as to value?. of concentrates and.tailings as published in your issue of the 9th, viz., concentrates 13dwts, tailings 2oz 7dwts. To me it appears almost impossible that the tailings should be so much richer than the blanket sand or con centrates, and I am quite satisfied that it is the other way about. .Mr Hancock received the samples from me clearly marked, and for warded them to Mr McGeorge under fresh covers without any .distinctive marks. I have had the tailings carefully assayed, re sult, 14dwts 23grs, which showes a far better extraction through the battery than would appear from Mr Hancock's statement.-I am. Sir, yours faithfully, THE MANAGER, Leviathan Battery. Kalgoorlie, April 10, 1896.

Golden Zone Crushings. THE MANAGER'S STATEMENT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-I beg to advise you that two parcels of ore from the Golden Zone mine, of 20 tons each, have been crushed at the Levia than battery. On February 24 20 tons of gold-bearing material yielded 16oz. In fair ness to the mine, to shareholders, and lease holders on the northern end of the Hannans belt, I wish to state that the 20 tons was by no means picked stone, but was taken from the face of the drive, some 8ft to 4ft wide, and consisted foir iibh6-1 he g~ i th pmrt'ob lode for mation, in which the -gold is much finer than in the quartz,,and in addition, owing to the soft earthy nature of the formation, the slimes were greater and thicker, conse quently a lot of the dine gold passed away or floated on top of the slimes without ever touching the plates. Hence the result--. 20 tons yielded 16oz smelted. Concentrated assayed-3oz 7dwt per ton. Tailings " loz 9dwt "' The second crushing, which cleaned up on 3March 21, consist...

The lode material carries fair gold. After long delay, and much agitation. tenders (returnable 25th inst.) have been, called for the establishment of a weekly mail service between Kanowna and the Hit or Miss mHayes). The crosscuts at the 200ft and 300ft levels of Hannan's Reward, are being pushed on very rapidly. Both have been let on contract and the work is being carried on as speedily as possible.

Balagundi Notes.. (PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) BALAGUNDI, APRIL 14. We have got a tri-weekly mail service now, which is a great boon to the district, and a townsite is badly wanted in this rising dis trict. There are several people who want to open business, but decline to start until a township is surve~ed by the Government. There is a large amountof traffic through here now to Kurnalpi, Bulong, Mount Monger, and several other new districts which are being opened up. A dam or bore is badly wanted in this dis trict as the nearest water is 13 miles distant, and the residents of the district are greatly handicapped in that respect. There .is a splendid opening here for a lore or water shaft, for besides supplying the residents the teams going to Kurnalpi and Bulong would draw their supply of water here instead of haying to go six miles past Bulong to the condensers at the lake. The various mines in the district are being steadily developed, and are opening up very well. At the Malver...
