In the south drive from the No. I rise workings an ad-i vance of about 16 feet is recorded since the previous report, but the wash, which was of.a heavy nature, was just below the points of the laths, the fea ture of interest being that sniall sam ples gave prospects equal to 2 ozs per fathom. The north drive, to relieve the pressure of water in the rise, was carried 16 feet with the wash 3 feet over the back, so that an idea of the condition of the lead in this direction should soon be obtainable.
