OUR AURIFEROUS DEPOSITS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
OUR AURIFEROUS DEPOSITS. According to the Australia'n Tradingj ITorld, the most valuable portion of Herr Schmeisser's report is the scientific descrip tion of the auriferous deposits of Western Australia, which he divided into two general classes. He says :--" Two distinct kinds of xeins or reefs are noticeable--(A) Composite veins. (B) Quartz veins. In the descrip tion given of the first (or A class) of these, I wish to include all those gold deposits which to the West Australian miner are known as ' lode formations.' These are lodes which consist of more or less altered country rock, intersected by numer ous quartz veins or reefs (B class) are those fissures which are filled in principally with quartz. Composite Veins, A Class.-The composite veins occur chiefly in diabase and diorite, less frequently in granite and in the sedimentary beds of the primary rock. The average thickness of these is considerable, although not uniform, varying from a few feet to over 100ft in very short d...
Herr Schmeisser's Report. ENGLISH PRESS OPINIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Herr Schmeisser's Report. ENGLISH PRESS OPINIONS. The English papers received by the last mail contain some interesting criticisms of the report of Bergrath Carl Schmeisser, Prussian Government mineralogist, who last year visited the Western Australian gold fields, partly on behalf of the German Govern ment, and partly for the London and Western Australian Investment Compalty. The Lon don Times says :--"Herr Scimeisser. as a foreign expert, may lay claim to the credit of an independent authority. His report establishes beyond doubt the value of the new field as a genuine gold-producing dis strict, but it leaves us, by no fault of the inquirer, uninformed on some important points about which information would be specially welcome. ..... In Western Australia, as elsewhere, there are good mines and bad mines, and it is satisfactory to learn that the best are very good, and that where quartz reefs proper occur the yield of gold often amounts on an average to several. ounces per ton. How...
Death of Mr A. A. Naumann COOLGARDIE, May 15. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Death of Mr A. A. Naumann (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) COOLGARDIE, May 15. Mr A. A. Naumann died a little after 10 o'clock this morning at his residence in Shaw street. The news was received with the greatest sorrow by the whole of the residents of the town, for the genial and manly quali ties of the deceased gentleman were appre elated by everyone. Indeed, it is doubtful whether there was a more popular man than Andre Naumann on the goldfields, and his loss will be keenly felt not only by his many friends, but by the whole commuity. It is now just a little over eighteen months since he came to Westralia as the general manager for the Central Exploration Co. to Western Australia. For the first two or three months he was on the Murchison, where he successfully carried through several ventures for his corporation. Subsequently he came to Coolgardie, where he secured a number of investments for the Central Ex ploration Company. Among the first was the purchase of the Black Flag Propri...

Kurnalpi. May 12. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Kurnalpi. May 12. Nothing of any great consequence in the mining line has occurred here this week. Captain Rode continues to break out good stone at the Consols mine. The illustrations in the AG US of this and last week were very much appreciated locally. That of " Dry Blowing" being particularly admired as it included an old Kurnalpi identity. The Warden holds a court to-morrow.
Smithfield. May 11. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Smithfield. May 11. The Great Boulder, Mt. Ettit, and the Niobe form another line of gold bearingreef parallel to the Wheel of Fortune group on the east side. The former is quite a noticeable feature as one homes from the lake on the way to the Arrow its great mass towers above the tree tops and glistens white in the sun's rays for a long distance away. Mr Marjcs, the lessee and manager, has bpen engaged for some months in tunnelling under this in mense outcrop of stone, first from the west side and then from the east, and has proved that the quartz goes down, and he is now about to sink a shaft to cut it at 150ft, which should prove its value bepond a doubt. Mount Ettie is an 18 acre lease north of the Great Boulder, and is being exploited by a syndicate. A main shaft has been sunk to a depth of 60ft to cut the formation, which is of great width, and in which gold has been obtained in many places. The late rain, however, put so much water in the shaft that it was discontinued for a...
Goldfields' Electoral Registration League. MASS MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
AGoldfields' Electoral Registration League. MASS MEETING. LAST Saturday evening, a public meeting was held in Maritana-street to hear an address from Mr F. C. B. Vosper, delegate of the Goldfields' Electoral Registration League. There was a very large attendance. The acting-Mayor, Mr Nethercott, occupied the chair, and appropriately introduced Mr Vosper, stating that his efforts to induce residents on the goldfields to register their votes had his hearty sympathy. Mr Vosper, who was well received, then delivered an address, in which he avoided entering into controversal politics, and urged on his hearers,. irrespective of party, the ne cessity of enrolling their names as voters. He referred to the work already done by the league, and pointed out that there were some districts with less than 70 voters that re turned members to the Assembly, whilst these goldfields with a vast, population of many thousands were represented by only one member. Mr Vosper mentioned that only a small prop...
Brunner Relief Fund. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Brunner Relief Fund. _ The residents of the East Coolgardie gold fields, and the Brunner Relief Committee especially, have every reason to feel grati flied at the splendid response which has been made to the appeal on behalf of' the widows and orphans of the miners who lost their lives in the recent catastrophe at the Brunner Mine, New Zealand. Kalgoorlie heads the list, and the result is a credit alike to the district and the committee. When the lists were first issued the secretary of the fund, Mr Frank Kelsall, who has received letters of congratulation from several of the leading residents, fixed his estimate at a very high figure, but the result has greatly exceeded his most sanguine expectations. Already £404 9s 3d has been subscribed, with several lists to come in, which should bring the amount to over £500. It is impossible to give the names of the in dividual subscribers, as there are over 3,000 names on the list. The Boulder and Lake View head the list of mines, but with t...

BLOCK 45. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
BLOCK 45. A quartz reef has been struck in the main shaft on Block 45 at a depth of 111ft. The shaft is going down vertically, and the reef, which came in from the east side, has been penetrated about 2ft. It consists of very white quartz. carrying heavy patches of pyrities, and in places heavy dabs of coarse gold. It was met with in hard diorite or diabase country, and closely resembles the quartz leaders struck in Hannan's Reward in sinking the main shaft. In a few days the value of the strike will be known, but in the meantime Manager Ede: has obtained assays up to two ounces per ton. In the southern portion of the mine, where a start was made a few weeks ago to resume work in the original prospector's shaft on Kelly's lode, splen'id gold is being won. At a depth of about 100ft in the old underlay shaft the reef in places produces massive gold, one or two of the specimens in the manager's house con taining many ounces of gold. The reef at this depth is four or five feet thick con...
HANNANS PROPRIETARY. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
HAIN~NAN PROPRIETARY. The work of pushing on the two mile crosscut to prove the value of the whole of the main mineral belt is being carried out very rapidly now that most of the necessary shafts have been sunk to the required depth of 100ft. In the last two weeks the manager had the satisfaction of reporting that a little more than a quarter of a mile of sinking, driving, and cross-cutting was carried out, the actual distance having been 478 yards. This is a record even for Hannans, and the Work now being done by the ihannans Proprietary Development Coy. promises to vastly increase not only the value of their own but scores of other properties. The crosscut is being carried from a point a little north of the Boulder and runs in a north easterly direction almost to the Maritana and thence with one slight break east to the Hidden treasure on the north side of Kauf man's Golden Group. It is perhaps the greatest mining work ever undertaken in Australia. The company is paying £4,000 a m...
THE AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
THE AUSTRALIA. The Australia guoup of mines which form part of the Coolgardie, or as it is now called the Associated Mines Company, promise to - add another surprisingly rich line of lode to those already opened up in the locality of the Great Boulder. This line runs parallel with and on the east side of the Lake View lode. It is surprisingly rich in some of the more northern mines, notably the Kalgarli mines, but although in the Australian and Australian North a great deal of two or three ounce dirt has been raised no exceedingly rich shoots had been met with until Saturday last. A run of stone equal in point of richess to anything yet seen ontthe field was then met with at the 100ft level in the Australia. In driving on the course of the reef which is 8ft or 9ft wide, splendid ore was met with. Some of it closely resembles the Bank of England stone in the coarseness of the gold, and the whole face is very high grade. The Associated mines, have half a mile on this line of lode, the...
