QUARTZ-REEFING AT BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mining Record and Grenfell General Advertiser — 25 April 1868
QUARTZ-REEFING- AT BALLARAT. A casual glanco at tho mining statistics for tho past quarter, which wrro published in Saturday')) issuo discloses tho feet that quartz mining is not by any means in a very flour ishing condition. Fourteoj thousand ono hundred and sevcnty-flvo tons crushed yielded only 2500 ounecsof gold, equal to nn avengo of 4 dwts 12J grs to tho ton. Thcsn flguros may bo taken as proving two things— firstly, that, tho quartz is poor ; and secondly, that a very small averse yield will pay. 'For in stance, th« Black Ilill Company crushed 4(133 tonj for ihi'J nr. of -;old, yet the dividends amounted to £1210, out of £38 10, tho value ofthofioldj thnt is, about one-third of tho yield wm Droilt.
