MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 5 March 1914
MINING INTELLIG NClE. It may be pointed out to the di-ec tors of the Central Cathcart Co. (snas the "Australasian"), that an official explanation should be forthcoming as to why no dividend had been paid since December.

Surprise was occasioned by the publication of tne statement that the directors intend ed to sink the shaft another 40 feet, with the object of working the gutter down the lead to the eouth. Of course this involves driving a fresh under-level, and will mean a consider able outlay. In the market it has been known that the manager has been experiencing a great deal of difficulty with the workings north of the shaft. The water has been heavy, and the southern crosscut from which No. 1 rise goes up has had to be abandoned. The market had a doubt as to when further dividends were likely to be paid, for a consid...

The refuse material is vrst wash ed, then pressed.and treated by eul phuric acid, and afterwards by lime, be ing then put through other operations which are too long to enumerate, end ing by filtering and evaporating in a vacuum.
