The Sisters' Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
The Sisters' Eospital.. WE have been informed that two gentle men have promised to give sums amounting to £300 to the funds for the erection of the proposed hospital under the control cf the Sisters of the Order of St. John of God. The Committee have now between £500 and £600 available, and a considerable amount in addition has been promised, and there should be no further delay in making a beginning. A good sized structure could be erected for this sum; additions could be made later if neces sary with the cash outstanding and with further money that will be collected at the railway opening bazaar and by private subscriptions. The accommmo dation at the local hospitals is not at present nearly sufficient for the number of patients seeking admission. The beds are all occupied, and there are numbers of men at present lying ill in their tents unnursed. This is a very serious state of affairs, and steps should be taken at once to proceed with the erection of the necessary buildings. The...

Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
Mining Notes. The first gold escort leaves Norseman this week. A fair supply of water has been struck in the Kalgurli mine at a depth of 160ft. The Crown Prince, seven miles north-west from Kanowna, has been sent to London for flotation. A cable message states that very rich gold has been discovered in the West Indian island of Trinidad, which belongs.to Great Britain. A promising line of reef has been discovered near Nolan's Find in the Mount Robinson district. The specimens brought in were very rich. The Brown Hill mill is running full time again, and owing to the improvements made recently much better work is now beingdone, the crushing capacity having been increased. At the 200ft level of Hannan's Reward mine the crosscut has penetrated the lode six or seven feet. It is still very solid, and as yet no idea can be formed as to the total width of the formation. Four big cyanide plants have been ordered for the mines controlled by Mr George Gray on the fields. Two complete plants w...
Golden West Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
Golden West Australia. There has been continued activity in the market for West Australian Gol:i Mining shares, and although rates finished pretty stiff at the carry over, making up prices generally marked an important im provement since the end of March settle ment. Thus advances for the acount are marked of 1 in Great Boulder at 8, of 8-16th Great Boulder Main Reef at 1 5-16th, of 1 in Lady Loch at 4 of j in Mainland Consols at 8, of I in West Australian Goldfields at 71, and of 5-8thl in Hampton Plains at 41, while a host of other shares showed improvements of from 1-8th to 1-4th. One of the few adverse movements has been a relapse in Hannan's Brown Hill to 6 3-8th, which had made up at 6 7-8th, but no further reliable news with regard to crushings is to hand. A host of new companies are on the tapis, and it will be imperative for investors to discriminate very carefully. There will be, amongst others, the Coolgardie Austral Gold Mining Company, the Towranna Gold Mines of West Au...
Gold Shoots. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
Gold Shoots. A matter interesting to geologists is re ferred to in a report to the Secretary for Mines, Victoria, by Mr B. Moon, the assist ant geological surveyor, on the occurrence of gold in shoots in quartz reefs. In making an underground geological survey at Maldon recently he inquired into the origin of shoots of gold in these reefs, and found that the pitch of the shoots follows a natural law. His investigations, he stated, proved that the pitch of an auriferous shoot coincides identically with that of the intersection of the reef with an adjacent rock-bed. Such being the case, the pitch is dependent on the relative dips and strikes of the reef and strata, and the angle at which the strike of the reef crosses that of the strata. Believing, as he did, that the gold in the reefs had been trans ferred thereto from the adjacent strata, and in the case of "short " or narrow shoots of gold was in all probability derived from an individual rock-bed, it occurred to him that if this w...
A WEALTHY SYNDICATE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
A WEALTHY SYNDICATE. Mr S. Mansfield, the representative of the Good Luck Syndicate recently formed in London, and which includes among its shareholders, perhaps, more millionaires than any other corporation operating on the field, has arrived in Kalgoorlie, and will probably' make his home among us. He has come to the field for the purpose of investing, not only in mines, but in anything, includ ing town property. Among his speculations is the Menzies Brewery, of which he is a director. Mr Barny, who was formerly with Mr C. Kaufman, is accompanying Mr Mans field in his tour of inspection.
BOULDER NORTH EXTENDED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
BOULDER NORTH EXTENDED. The Boulder North Extended has attracted a great deal of attention of late, and promises to occupy a still larger share of public notice shortly. Mr Frogget, the manager, made himself famous some few days ago by sending a wire to his directors couched in the words--" Have struck the lode, but it is barren." He has since found that the case is not quite so bad as this, as he has found fair gold near the wall. The lode is 12ft wide, and is as nice looking a body of ore as any on the field. It is being opened up at a depth of 120ft, and is so promising that a start should be made at once to drive on the course of the formation, as there is every probability of a rich shoot being met with if this were done. Further west in the upper workings was found a parallel lode which averaged fairly for gold, and as only 20 or 30ft separate the two bodies it is intended to continue the crosscut to open it up. This should be accomplished within a few days as the ground is ve...
LAKE VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
LAKE VIEW. The 200ft level in this mine is improving as it is opened up. Both the south drive from Pearse's and the north drive from W.G.'s shaft are being carried through wide bodies of ore averaging from 2oz to Soz per ton, and are every week adding largely to the already large bodies of ore in sight in the mine. A steam winding plant is in position over W.G.'s shaft, and will be utilised for raising stone and water to-day. This is the third winding plant at work on the mine, or two more than any other property on the field has possession of. Until a few weeks ago, the whole of the hauling on the property was done by means of whips and windlasses, and this was one of the causes which operated to retard the speedy development in the days when money was scarce. The new shaft at the south end of the mine is down 30ft but the lode has passed out of the vertical workings to the west. It was very rich at the point at which it underlie out of the working and this pit promises to add anot...
GREAT BOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
GREAT BOULDER. The south stope at the 100ft level of the Great Boulder continues to surprise even the old hands in the mine. This working, which is situated about 850ft south from the main shaft, apparently at the point at which the two legs of the lode again junction after having travelled side by side but separated by a horse of mullock for six or seven hun dred feet. In opening up the stope it was found that the horse had dwindled from 15ft or 20ft to a mere cab of country and this being too thin and weak to be of practical service as a pillar it was broken through and the stope carried the full width of the reef, which here averages a little more than 20ft thick. The stope is of good grade and in places exceptionally rich. The amount of ore in sight is so great that a start has been made to erect poppets over No. 8 shaft to facilitate hauling. A winch will also be put into position here as speedily as possible while the overhead tramway will be continued to facilitate the trucki...
THE IVANHOE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
THE IVANHOE. The stope at the 100ft level from the south shaft is opening up more surprisingly than ever. The manager has discovered that two feet on each side of the stope within the supposed walls is gold bearing, and at present 20ft in width, is being stoped and sent to the mill. For the full width of the workings the stone is rich, every ounce being crushed, and when the new 15 full-weight stamps are at work it will take some of the bigger mines all their time to keep pace with the Ivanhoe as a gold producer. The workof sinking the main shaft is being pushed on as rapidly as possible, while the drive north from the southern stopes to connect with the old main shaft is being carried through rich stone. The new shaft which is being sunk to open up the eastern lode has attained a depth of 100ft, and to-day a start will be made to crosscut for the reef, and it is expected that it will be reached within two weeks. The lode passed out of the shaft to the west at a depth of about 30ft ...
NEW DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896
NEW DISCOVERY. A new find of considerable importance has been made 26 miles north-west from Niagara. It is situated close to the sandy creek in which Messrs forn and Wilson intend to build the big reservoir to supply the fields with fresh water, while the country is s plen didly timbered. The discovery is not a gold show alone, but is extremely rich in copper, besides carrying 10oz of silver and 10dwt of gold. It is an immense outcrop averaging 40ft wide by 10ft high for a length of three quarters of a mile. The whole of this ground has been taken up as a mineral lease, and Warden Gill and Acting Warden Owen have recommended the grant ing of a reward claim to the prospectors. Mr Lambic found the claim, and in company with Mr Moore one of the vendors of the Treasure Trove secured the ground which has already been placed under offer to a big Melbourne firm. The assays of surface stones gave returns of 60 per cent of copper, IOoz of silver, and 9dwts to 10dwts of gold. Samples of the s...
