MINING. Mining News. HANNAN'S REWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
MINING. Dining News. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) HANNAN'S REWARD. Rumors have been current for some days that the lode at the 200ft. level was being appronchced if it had not Iccn nlready struck. and on Monday evening the lode was broken into in the east crosscut. So far, the forma tion has been penetrated for only three or four feet, ani as yet a great Ideal is not known about its value. Still the ore is of fair grade, and contains something like an ounce and a half per ton. The 300ft. cross cut has not yet got into the reef, the country being very hard. The same class of rock was met with in drivinu at the 200ft. level, but the worlking followed a quartz leader, and this facilitated work a little. In a few weeks the lode will be struck at the lower level, and it is probable that a big influx of water will be met with at the same time.

Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
Mining Notes, The White Feather Reward crushing of 260 tons for 5750z. is slightly better than the prediction that this would turn out a 2oz. mine, the above result being at the rate of 2oz, 4dwt. Sgr. per ton. This company has now crushed 1,163 tons for 2,545oz., an average of 2oz. Sdwt. 18gr. per ton. The result of the Lady Loch crushing at Cooleardie, which has been promised for some time, and which has been rumored to be good or bad at least half a dozen timesby those who ought to know, has at lastbeen made public, and it is pleasing to find that the result has been excellent, namely, 892oz from 200 tons. The tailings contain 6dwt to the ton, and the blanketings have yet to be treated. The crushing returns of the Hill End mine, in the North-East Coolgardie gold field, have been sufficiently high to attract considerable attention. On one occasion in April of last year--85 tons actually gave an average of 28joz per ton, while the average of the steady crushiugs during 11 months to...

A WATER SCHEME. Messrs T. S. Horn, W. R. Wilson, and C. Horn left late on Tuesday evening for Perth en route for the eastern colonies. Mr W. Jamieson and Mr Campbell-Johnson will leave to-day. During their stay on the fields the party have journeyed 800 miles by road, and have seen a great deal of the country. One of the objects of their visit was to inspect an immense water course much larger than Stephens Creek with a view to supplying the fields with water. This creek, which is situated about 60 miles north of Menzies, has an enormous catch ment area, and has already run 6ft deep twice this year. The country is a good well grassed land in which fresh water abounds, while thecreek is an immense expanse of clean sand and gravel.

THE JORDAN DIVORCE CASE DISMISSED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
THE JORDAN DIVORCE 04SE DISMISSED. The petition of Mrs Jordan in the divorce suit was dismissed by Mr Hodges to-day. His Honor. in delivering judgment, said it was alleged that tlhe respondent suffered from a certain disease, which it was suggested coul-i only have come from an adulterous act. That alleg ation had altogether broken down. There was no doubt whatever that the respondent did not have that disease. It was alleged that the respondent committed adultery with Lily Caldwell, but he had no materials before hlim on which he would be justified in brand. ing Lily Caldwell and her sister with infamy. The respondent's conduct was certainly strange, and the girl foolishly and improperly started her letters to him with "Dear Hugh," but improper as it was he did not think he should infer adultery from that. The charge of cruelty was tremendously exaggera ted, and the petition must be dis m.issed. The Lancefield incidents were, .bowever, suspicious, and the petitioner's proctor would...

RICH DISCOVERY IN A MARYBOROUGH MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 21 May 1896
1ICH DISOOVERY IN A MAR Y BOROUGH MINE. Last evening, in the stopes at the 300ft level in Sharp and Barry;s Amalgamated mine, Leviathan Reef, Maryborough, a veritable jeweller's shop was discovered. A candle-box of specimens was brought into Mary borough, and is estimated to contain 100oz. of gold ; in fact, it is more gold than quartz. The Sharpe and Barry company though a no-liability one has never had its shares on the market, the original holders retaining them. The mine has been worked down from the surface to 360ft, where the drives are now being opened out. The mine has been very successful, the gold taken out since the discovery of the reef in 1890 being valued at £90,000. Another rich discovery was made laot week in Hasting Brothers' claim on the same line, when a dishful of rubble of the reef yielded 2ozs. In Sharpe's mine two loads crushed went nearly 9ozs. Other parties and com panies have a good prospect on this line of reef.
