IVANHOE SOUTH EXTENDED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 28 May 1896

IVANHOE SOUTH EXTENDED. Manager's report for fortnight, April 25 : The crosscut in north shaft is now in 65ft east, having been driven 8ft during the fort night. The country continues hard and un settled, but principally blue diorite and de composed schist, with small veins of quartz. The crosscut in south shaft is now in 44ft, and as no change of country came in I de cided this morning to stop this work for the present, and put the men on to sink a shaft on a lode about 100 yards south. I have been credibly informed that 45oz of gold was taken out of some old surface workings of very small extent when the first rush took place. These workings overlie the lode, and Scannot see from the nature of the ground where this gold could come from if not from the lode, which certainly exists, although it does not crop out on the surface, but shows indications of being at no great depth. I propose sinking 30Oft or 40ft, and then cross cutting to prove its extent and value.
