The reefs—whether of the Hodgkinson or , the Palmer—undoubtedly justify a rush, it matters not how large, of persons interested, in this branch of mining industry.

The Palmer has even , now no less than half-a-dozen quartz-mining centres at wide centres apart—Edwardstown, the Normanby, Byerstown, Revolver Point, Cradle Creek, and German Bar—on each of which machinery is urgently called for, and on the whole of which but a single , ten stamper machine is yet at work ; while the ■ fact that Mulligan's party found twenty-five auriferous reefs in the course ot their short prospecting expedition speaks for itself of the , probabilities of the future of the Hodgkinson: as a field for the quartz-miner.
