GOLD AT MONGOLATA Crashing Apparatus Required Burra, February 24. Prospectors on the recent gold find at Mongolata are working steadily and, it is said, with satisfactory results. There are more than 43 men out there, and one party reported striking good gold-bearing stone every day but one last week, when they were mainly en gaged in clearing dirt away. From Mr. W. Geo. Terry's party's claim two tons of ore were taken to Peterborough and treated. The crush ing resulted in:—Gold, 8 oz. 15 dwt. 6 gr.; cyanide, 1 oz. 10 dwt. 18 gr. The < seam from where this ore was obtained is only ebout four or five inches wide. Specimens from the different claims are frequently being brought into the town, and the gold easily discerned. A crushing apparatus on the field would prove a boon to the prospectors.
