FANNING DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Queensland Register — 17 August 1892
FANNING- DIGGINGS. There are at present 13 miners at this place, and all their shows are looking well. A crushing of 64 tons from the Lancashire Lass is now going through Arthur Murphy's battery and it is expected to go l£oz per ton. Fitzpatrick and Rice have 25 torn re dy for crushing, which it is expected will yield l|oz. McManus has 14 tons raised, which it iB ex pected, will go over an ounce; and Nelson and mate 20 tons, w hich ought to go at least 16dwte. I learn there are about 50 China men working at the old alluvial diggings at the head of the Fanning, which were worked before the Palmer rush.

KANGAROO HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Queensland Register — 17 August 1892
KA.NOABOO HELLS. The town of Snsn, which a year ago con tained nearly 500 inhabitants, is almost deserted. There are only 18 wages men on the silver field. The biuret up of the Running River Company is accountable for HUB field being so suddenly deBertod. Ihe only lines of lode now worked axe the True Blue, Boomerang, Caledonia and Hidden Treasure. At the True Blue a large quantity of ore has been raised. This mine is looking well and I am convinced must ultimately prove a most remunerative properly. It ifi under exemption at present in consequence of the Aldershot workB refusing to treat the ore owing to its containing too much lead to treat as a copper ore, and too much copper to treat as lead ore. The bulk assay for silver is 60 ounces. I just learn that Mr Mofiat. who Is well-known to all Northern tin and silver miners, has advanced £9 per ton on the ore, and that the manager, Mr Gilbert, will resume work without delay. I would like to see a huedred miners at work in this mine, ...
