BROWN HILL MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
BROWN HILL MACHINERY. This picture was taken before the mill house was closed in with iron, and gives a better idea ot the size and importance of the plant than would be furnished by a view of the completed structure. The plant is now running, and within a few days the first crushing will be announced. The importance of the trial run lies in the fact that the mill has been designed to treat the ores of the district with the consumption of as little water as possible and by the use of cyanide to extract as much of the gold con tents of the ore as is practicable in one operation. In this the plant has been wonderfully successful ; in the trial runs as much as 90 percent. of the gold having been recovered. The process consists of dry crushing, barrel amalgamation and cyanida tion, simultaneously and finally leaching with cyanide in ordinary vats.

FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 1896. (Before Mr L. R. Davis, Warden.) PLAINTB. Ryan v. Sarbon.- Claim for £28 10s 4d call on amount of lease 1602. No appearance of defendant. Mr Pilkington appeared for the plaintiff and called Mr Taylor, registrar, to produce the registerof lease 1602. The register showed that Charles Sarbon held 15 shares out of a total of 60. Patrick Ryan deposed that the other registered shareholders and himself held the lease in partnership and they paid the ex penses of working in proportion to their shares. There was no written agreement of partnership between them. The statement produced showing an amount of £28 10s 4d still due from Sarbon up till 7th March was correct. He asked Sarbon to pay several times. He presented the first Bill to him on 23rd December for £12--and presented other accounts at different times. On March 7th he said he could not pay as he had no money. At this stage it was discovered that there was no affidavit of service, and the bailiff said he had ...
Our Illustrations. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
Our Illustrations. This week for the first time the WESTERN ARGUs is issued as an illustrated paper. No one who remembers how unpretentious was the ARGUs nine or ten mouths ago, when it was issued as a small four page paper, can fail to be surprised at the import i nt journal it has since become. To-day, after giving the older weeklies so many years start, it stands unrivalled in West Australia as the leading weekly newspaper of the colony. The marvellous strides the town and district have made in less than a year are shown by the newspapers published in Kalgoorlie. " Show me your newspapers and I will tell you the financial position of your town and and distript" has passed into a proverb, and Kalgoorlie can with pride exhibit its papers in any, part of the world. The very generous s~upport the proprietors have received from all classes of the community in their efforts to bring both the WESTERN ARGUS and the KALGooRLIi MrNER up to the standard the wealth and importance this great ...
COOLGARDIE NEWS. April 22. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
COOLGARDIE NEWS. rBY TELEGRAPJ.1 (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 22. Johln Barry appeared before Mr Finnerty, it.M., at the Police Court this morning to answler a charge f disorderly conduct. W. J. Caley, tle proprietor of a portable dispensary of viands, in other words, a coffee stall, said that John came last night, ani asked for tongue and potatoes, which delicacies Caley gave him. When John had finis ed with the tongue, 4 and successfully demolished the po tatoes, Caley suggested that the quid pro quo in coin of the realm should be handed over, when John declined to pay, and evidenty, either under a sense of wrong, or feeling the effects of having two tongues in him, said he would not, and mentioned that some person who did not exist had paid already. As the full force of the demand struck home to John, he struck home to Caley, and knocked his spectacles ofl. This evidence was cor roborate I by a witness, and Barry said Caley had demanded payment before hand, and he refused....
The Alleged Coolgardie Conspiracy. COOLGARDIE, April 22. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
The Alleged Coolgardie Conspiracy. [By TELEGRAPH.] [oM onUR own CORRESPONDENT.] COOLGARDIE, April 22. David Mitchell, a manl apparently about 30 years of age, with a fair moustache and dark hair, who appeared somewhat downcast, was charged before Mr Finnerty, R.M., at the Police Court this morning with having, in conjunc tion with Albert W. Macdonald and Thomas Cosgrove, conspired to cheat and defraud one Ferdinand Biermauun on March 7, 8, or 9 in connection with the sale of a condensing plant. Mr Finnerty remarked that the reason Mitchell had been arrested was because he could not be found. On the application of the police he was re manded until to-morrow at 10 o'clock. Mr Vyner asked Mr Finnerty if he would entertain an application for bail on behalf of Mitchell, to which the magistrate replied that he would give an answer later in the day, when he had ascertained if and how Mitchell had tried to get away.

BULONG. April 22. The well-known property, known as the White Horse, situate at I O U, has been dis posed of by Messrs Rampling and Antil at a very g ig figure. Messrs Scholes and Mac lean are the purchasers, and we understand that the property has been sent on to London for flotation.

ARROW PROPRIETARY. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
ARROW PROPRIETARY. Captain Wm Hambly. M.E., manager of the Arrow Proprietary gold mines has re turned again, looking all the better for the change and rest, which, in the opinion of the directors, lie deserved. We are all glad to see him once more in our midst. Mr R. V. Barrow, of London, chairman of the com pany, recently visited the mines with some other members of the board of directors. All of them were so pleased with the pros pects that they decided to go to Adelaide and invite tenders for the necessary plant and machinery required, in order to open up alnd develop the mine at greater depths and extent on the line of the different lodes. Mr Barrow proceeded to Adelaide with as little delay as possible, and in conjunction with Messrs G. W. lIrookman and Flnlayson, advertised in all the S.A. papers, soliciting tenders for the following machinery, all of which is to be made of the best material, together with finish and workmanship, embracing all the latest designs and improve mi...

BROWN HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
BROWN HILL. The Brown Hill machinery continues to run well, and it is intended to put on three shifts in the mill this week. By this means the plant will be kept running night and day without intermission, but it was found impossible to commence working the three shifts earlier owing to the fact that the men have to get accustomed to the work gradually, and it would not do to run the plant without having someone in charge who has become accustomed to the working of it. It has not yet been decided when the first cleaning up will take place.
BOULDER PERSEVERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
BOULDER PERSEVERANCE. The Lake View loae nas been struck in the Boulder Perseverance at a depth of 100ft, after sinking through hard diorite for 30ft. The lode is almost vertical, and the shaft is being carried down a long way in lode material, but the diorite bulged into the shaft, and for a long time the working was carried through nothing save the crystalline stone as hard as brass. 'At length the diorite gave place to lode material, and for the last 35ft the shaft has been sunk in high grade ore, similar to the Lake View stone. The diorite was palpably a bulge which tem porarily displaced the reef, which has resumed its original course, and is now going down almost vertically. The stone is about the average grade of the View and the Perseverance promises to become one of the most impor tant mines on the field. In addition to the Lake View line there is a parallel lode traversing the proporty, while a cross lode seven feet in thickness runs between the two connecting them.
MINING. Mining News. THE GREAT BOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
MINING. Mining News. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) THE GREAT BOULDER. The Great Boulder continues to open up splendidly and every day she furnishes some fresh development which arrests attention. Since the opening up of the lode at the 200ft level, visitors from all parts of the world have been pouring in to inspect the underground workings and the mil e is now attracting more attention than any property has since the palmy days of the Broken Hill Proprie tary Silver mine. The 200ft level continues to open up splendidly, and a start has been made to drive south on the course of the lode which is from 12ft to 13ft wide, and in the more quartzy portions shows very rich gold. The full width of the reef is rich but the schistose ironstone material merely shows the gold. The lode is maintaining its width as the the south drive is proceeded with, and as soon as the face has been carried in a little further a start will be made to drive along the ledge to connect the workings with the shaft in...
Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
Mining Notes. Messrs W. R. Wilson, T. S. Horn, C. Horn, and William Jamieson put in all day on Tuesday inspecting the Great Boulder and Lake View mines. They were very pleased with the properties which they consider are .looking extremely well. The manager of the Friendship mine, close to Coolgardie, wired to his directors on April 15, as follows:-""Cut splendid gold in drive between No. 1 and No. 2 shafts. Arranging with Associated battery for 5-head to crush continuously ; also to put tram line from the mill to the mine. Expect to start mill in about six weeks." There is a great boom on in Melbourne in Croesus shares which were quoted in private wires on Tuesday at 21s. It is probable that the English Purchasers have decided to exercise their option at. once and take the mine over, although their time does not expire until May 15. There is no doubt as to the great value of the mine. Baron Sloet, the famous Belgian geologist, expresses the opinion that the lodes of the district are...
LAKE VIEW EXTENDED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
LAKE VIEW EXTENDED. The Lake View lode has been struck in the Lake View Extended, one of the mines owned by the Associated Mines, or as the company is still better known, the Cool gardie Company. The Extended is situated south of the Lake View South, and with the exception of the Adelaide, is the most southern block held by the Associated Mines. The lode was cut at a depth of 100ft, and as yet the width of the formation is not known, one wall only having been struck. The ore is full of rich shotty gold, and apparently the reef is as rich and wide as in the Lake View itself. There can be no doubt as to the identity of the reef which has already been traced through the Lake View South, ihe block intervening between the View and the Extended mines. Many of the prophets of evil with whom every field abounds, have all along stated there was no hope of the lode being struck so far south as the Extended, and Captain Oats is naturally jubliant at the success of his efforts to trace the reef...
LAKE VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
LAKE VIEW. The work of opening up the 200ft level of the Lake View is proceeding apace. Already a start has been made to drive north on the course of the reef at this level from W. G.,s whi e astart will be made within a few days to open out at the same depth from the old main shaft christened Lane's shaft, but now rightly re-christened Pearse's in honor of the original prospector of the whole of the Boulder group, who, like so many of the pioneers of the field, has not made as much out of his wonderful discoveries as those who followed at his heels have done. This work ing has been carried down to the depth, and within a few weeks we should know the value of the level pretty thoroughly. From the W.G's. shaft the face is in 10ft from the plat, and the ore is as nice looking as in any part of the mine. Its value is about the same as the average ore of the mine, and there is no doubt as to the quantity of it, 8ft or 10ft being good enough to send to the mill. There is no level be twee...
THE BOULDER NORTH EXTENDED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
THE BOULDER NORTH EXTENDED. By mistake we stated that this mine had been sold to an English company, but we are glad to learn that it is a property of the same name, but which has never been floated, that has been disposed of. The Boulder North Extended, in which shares are being sold on the Exchanges, is block No. 1273E, adjoining the West Boulder, which separates it from the Great Boulder's north-western block. Its position is good, and it would be a pity to sell it until the value of the lode opened up on the property has been proved. It is a pity the Warden in the early days did not prohibit the registration of the same name by more than one company, as the duplication of titles leads .to endless con fusion.
GREAT BOULDER MAIN REEF COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
GREAT BOULDER MAIN REEF COMPANY. A circular has. been issued to the share holders giving information as to the present position of affairs. We extract the following from it :--" There are three shafts on the property, called respectively the west shaft, the east shaft, and the south-west shaft, and Mr Seymour, before he left the property, gave instructions for a fourth shaft, called the new shaft, to be commenced midway between the south-west and east and west shafts. This shaft is to be sunk to the water level, which Mr Seymour says will probably be about 280ft. The east and west shafts have both been sunk to a depth of 71ft. They have been connected by a cross cut, the lode being intersected about 40Oft to the east of the western shaft. This lode, which is, in his opinion, a continuation of the one from which the Great Boulder Com pany is getting its supplies of ore, has been driven on to the north 72ft, and to the south 117ft. The reef proper averages about 7ft in width, and is c...

Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for opinions expressed by corres pondents.] THE FUTURE OF KALGOORLIE. AN OUTSIDER'S OPINION. TO THE EDITOR. Si--After the perusal of a copy of your paper we are desirous of subscribing to it. Will you therefore let us know the yearly cost of a copy, money in advance, and posted direct. Being interested in W.A. stocks, principally at Kalgoorlie, we were sub scribing to the Coolgardie press. The tactics of these organs are apparently based upon anything but national grounds. To one who does not know the mining history of W.A., it would seem that Cool gardie and its immediate neighbourhood are the only parts gold bearing. Through obvious jealousy, Kalgoorlie and its wonderful possi bilities are entirely ignored. After all the impetus the Boulder, Lake View, and other Kalgoorlie properties have given to trade, and mining, and the world-wide attention they have secured for WA., this prejudice and jealousy is childish in the e...
THE UNDAUNTED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 30 April 1896
THE UNDAUNTED. This mine lies a little west of the Rose and Shamrock, and has the Golden Zone North on its western boundary. Prospecting has been carried on for some time on behalf of an Adelaide Syndicate, and at a depth of 50ft. the eastern line of reef running through the Kapai and adjoining mines has been struck. It is of fair value and about four to five feet in width. It character it is gossany quartz, and the gold is fine but evenly distributed. It is intended to drive on the lode and also to sink deeper for the continuation, for the purpose of testing the lode at a greater depth.
