KANOWNA CONSOLS. BALLARAT AND SUNBEAM AMALGAMATED. SATISFACTORY DEVELOPMENTS. Kanowna, Feb. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
BALLARAT AND SUNBEAM AMALGAMATED. SATISFACTORY DEVELOP MENTS. Kanowna, Feb. 1. For some considerable time much local interest has centred on de velopments at the Ballarat Gold Mine, Kanowna. The proprietors, after much difficulty, succeeded in securing the adjoinmg leases for merly held by the Sunbeam and Bal larat companies. The Sunbeam for a number of years produced excel lent results, but on reaching water level, as no provision had been made for increased cost of working, a sub sidy was obtained from the Mines Department for the erection of ma chinery and. the sinking of a new shaft, which cost more than antici pated, and consequently the com pany was stranded. The guarantee to the Mines Department of the re fund of the money, advanced for years prevented the lease from be mg again taken up. Since the Sunbeam reef dips into the Ballarat, which has a shaft sunk to 375 ft., the advantage of working it from this mine, which is fully 175 ft. below the Sunbeam, is at once manifest. F...
