Kurnalpi. May 29. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
Kurnalpi. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.1 May 29. A number of local mining properties changed hands this week, and a marked tendency is noticeable in speculators to in vest in the district. Amongst the visitors this week have been Messrs Wittenoom and Anderson, who came on mining business, and Messrs Saunders and Sabine, of the Water Supply Department, who are attending to local requirements in this respect. We have been cursed with the professional jumper lately and several plaints for forfei ture are down for hearing at the next Court, the matter being sub-judice I will refrain from further comment at present, but much might and probably willbe said of the tactics employed by one individual concerned. Amongst the leases jumped are the Leviathan at the 6-Mile, and the Mountain Maid at the 18-Mile. The Progress Committee have been granted £500 by the Government for the purpose of clearing the streets and providing sanitary conveniences. Tenders are now being called for the above. The ...
VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, June 2. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
VICTORI&A. MELBOURNE, June 2, The mystery surrounding the de railment of the Adelaide express near Dimboola has not yet been cleared up, but both the Minister of |lailways and the officials think it possible that an attempt was made to wreck the train, though no obstruction could be found. If certain facts which have been laid before the Mines Department, but which have no ollicial comfirmation yet, Iprove to be correct, a discovery of gold has been made in Victoria that eclipses any previous find in the whole of Australia. The locality is 12 miles 1 eyond Marysville, on what is known as the Reefton track, and adjacent to Armstrong's Oreek. A report has been prepared on the discovery by Mr Elliot Cairnes, a geological surveyor in private practice for the information of the company which owns the lease, in which everything it is re marked has been understated. It ap pears that a miner who had worked at Mount Morgan was prospecting for quartz in this district and he came upon ...
HANNAN'S GOLDEN MORNING STAR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
HANNAN'S GOLDEN MORNING STAR. This group of leases, comprising 30 acres, was thrown in with the Golden Treasure, and the whole floated in one company in London as the Golden Treasure Group. Situated south-east of the Boulder and Lake View mines, and immediately adjoining the Pride of the Hills, there were two good reefs prospected to a depth of 50ft or 6Oft before passing into the hands of the English holders. One of these lodes, a massive formation of quartz and iron, carries 4oz to 5oz per ton all through the 8ft of ore in sight at the 50ft level. Further east there is another nice looking lode of similar composition opened to a depth of a few feet only. In prospecting the mine a tunnel was started on the eastern side of the claim to tap, if possible, the very rich stone being worked in the Pride of the Hills. This tunnel has been run in a distance of 800ft, and what appears to be the main lode of the locality has been met with. It is a big body of ore and of fairly high grade. In...

THE NORTHERN MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
THE NORTHERN MINES. Steady work has been done during the past six months with a view to tracing the lodes which are so phenominally rich in the youlder, Lake View, and Ivanhoe neighbor hood in their north-west course towards Kalgoorlie. A few experienced men have ventured the opinion that the reefs, or at least the gold, stops short at the Croesus and Brown Hill group, and although the reefs may continue, the gold contained in them is of slight value. It is needless to say this theory has never received any credence from the men who understood the field well. The fact that Hannan's Reward and McDonald's water shaft contain very rich metal in what are admitted to be continuations of the main lines of lode was rightly held to be evidence that the lode and the gold were both con tinuous, and that the precious metal having been discovered' in a few of the lodes around the town was fair evidence that the whole of the series of rich formations are continuous throughout the length of the b...
Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents.] THEORY OF THE FORMATION OF QUARTZ REEFS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself respon sible for opinions expressed by corres pondents.] THEORY OF THE FORMATION OF QUARTZ REEFS. TO THE EDITOR. SR-.-nWho is satislied with the theories of the formation of quartz reefs? There is the Taeous, or thrust up from below; the Aqueous, or filled in. fromn above; the Therm)!, or infiltfrated from the surround ing cbuntry; but all presuppose a ready made crack or fissure in which the soluable or molten matter was deposited. Well, let us suppose a ready-made crack the result of the shrinkage of the earth's crust, or from any other cause, it matters little to our argument-the crack is made, a rent in the earth, and it should follow that excepting where it terminated the sides should be equidistant, and that projections on one side should have corresponding depressions o the other. Is this so? Then it would be natural to suppose that these cracks would occur along the line of least resistance, or we will say parallel to the str...
THE ORITAVA. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
THE ORITAVA. In this mine, situated about half-way bet tween the Brown Hill Croesus group of pro perties and the Hannan's Reward Maritana group, three well-defined lines of lode have been opened up, and have thus formed a connecting link between the south centre and the middle north portions of the field. So far the richest line is that struck in the most eastern shaft on the Oritava group. This is a very rich lode, showing good gold _, in many places, and all panning well. The others do not pan so richly, but are very promising in appearance, and are sufficiently good to warrant a lot of money being spent on opening them up.
SIR JOHN FORREST. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
SIR JOHN FORREST. This mine, situated at the foot of Mari taa Hill on the south-east side has driven along the course of one of the more easterly picked up in the Oritava for a distance of 100ft. The stone has the porphoritic appear ance and absence of all stratification notic able in the northern mines and contains a network of quartz veins. The lode is about 10ft wide, and so far as it has been opened up carries about an ounce per ton. It is a defined body of ore occurring on the west side of a belt of diorite, and its strike is north-west and south-east. It is being. pro spected at a depth of fOft from the No. 2 or eastern shaft on block 501E, and running obliquely through the lease gives the Com pany about 900ft on the line of reef. Like all the lodes, with the exception of the Bank of England, North Boulder, and one or two other properties on the eastern side of the line, the stone improves with depth, and there is little doubt the rule will not be varied in the case of the Sir...
LAKE VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
LAKE VIEW. The 200ft level of the Lake View if open ing up splendidly. In driving south from W.G's. shaft at this level the drive is being carried across the width of the lode from the hanging to the footwall. It is now eight feet into the reef, but as yet there is no sign of the wall. The stone all through has averaged about 2.oz to 3oz per ton. Stone of equal value is being raised from the north drive, which is being run in to connect with Pearce's shaft. At the 200ft level from Pearce's shaft the south drive is in splendid stone which is apparently wide, the whole width of the face being in ore without disclosing the walls. In going north the drive was carried a little to the east, following what appeared to be a wall, but it has now been discovered that the for mation is on the west side of the working, and a start has been made to break into it. In the 100ft level the splendid stope north of Pearce's shaft is still being carried north over 20ft wide, and the western wall con ti...
RISING SUN. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
RISING SUN. Both the east and west shafts on the Rising Sun mine are down within a few feet of the 100ft level, and within three weeks the manager expects to be able to start crosscutting for the lodes. He expects to cut the western lode which is now proving so rich in the Goldel: Group, and also the Euclid line which runs a little east of the eastern shaft on the property. It will be remembered that a big formation was worked at the 60ft level, but it was found that the crosscut was not sufficiently deep at this level. The mine is being floated in London.
HANNAN'S GOLDEN GROUP. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
HANNAN'S GOLDEN GROUP. A battery has been ordered for Hannan's Golden group, and Messrs J. Martin and Co., Limited, of Gawler, have also secured orders for several winding plants for the mines managed by Mr Carlier. The Golden group continues to open up well, the 200ft level in the old main shaft proving so rich that a start has been made to sink a big engine shaft between the east and west lodes with a view to working both from it. An ingenious idea has been struck in erecting a whim between the two workings so that one end of the rope is used for lowerng a bucket down one shaftwhile theother hauls the dirt from the shaft on the opposite side. The mine has an abundant supply of water in a deep shaft in the eastern side of the 73 acres included in the property, and one of the best battery sites on the field has been chosen for the mill on the eastern side of the high ground.
HANNAN'S GOLDEN TREASURE GROUP. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
HANNAN'S GOLDEN TREASURE GROUP. This group of mines, which is situated south-west of the Boulder and the Ivanhoe, has furnished one of the surprises of the past few weeks. Secured by Mr C. Kaufman for the W.A. Exploration and Finance Corpor ation last November during the rush for properties which set in at that time it long promised to be a failure. So unpromising was it that both Mr Kaufman and Mr Carlier, the corporation's general manager on the field, considered it a duffer, and went so far as to inform their directors it was. In reply they were told by the controllers of millions to buy another mine and add it to the group and to continue working. Both these direc tions were carried out, with the result that to-day the Golden Treasure group is one of the rich and promising groups of mines in the neighbourhood of the Boulder. The property which comprises 90 acres, lies west of any other line of reef known at the time it was taken in hand by Mr Kauf man. On it was one of the big b...

Kurawah. May 29. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
Kurawah. LFROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] May 29. On the Queen's Birthday, Mr. Charles Brown, the popular landlord of the Arrow Hotel, entertained a few friends at luncheon, to celebrate the opening of his new hotel. After lunch, Mr Morris (chairman) proposed "The Queen." Then Mr W. Brown proposed "The Host,"' Mr Charles Brown, who res ponded in a suitable manner. Mr Hambly proposed " The ladies," and Mr Hanah, in a neat speech, responded. Mr Morris proposed "The sports committee." The hon secretary, Mr B. O. Butler, responded. Mr Charles Brown proposed "Sucoess to the Miuers' Association." The vice-president (Mr R. Gorrie) responded. The gathering then dis persed, in order to attend the sports.
THE MARITANA. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
THE MARITANA. In the most eastern shaft of this mine at a depth of 75ft the manager, Mr Bowell, has succeeded in picking up the continuation of the lode being worked in the Sir John Forrest. For some time past a vein of good grade ore about 3ft wide has been worked from this shaft, but the new manager decid ing that this was not the main lode started to crosscut west in search of the big for mation. Within a few feet from the shaft the lode was discovered, and its width is now being determined by continuing the crosscut iight through it. Up to date the crosscut is Gft into the lode without any sign of the hanging wall being approached. The ore is of fair grade, and is exactly similar to the stone being raised from the Sir John Forrest. It is pophoritic in appearance, and has the distinctive quartz veins running in all direc tions through it. Apparently the Maritana will have nearly as much length along the line of this lode as the Sir John Forrest. This is an entirely distinct lode ...
MARITANA NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
MARITANA NORTH. This block of 12 acres is held by an Ade laide company, and has apparently struck the very rich lode being opened up in the Oritava leases. The formations are identi cally the same, and both somewhat resemble the very rich stone being raised from the Australia mine, but of course the new find is much too far east to have any connection with the Australia and Kalgurli line of reef. It is apparently enclosed in walls of whitish slate on edge, and is the big ore dump that is composed of the nicest looking dirt yet raised so far north. The find is of immense importance unless appearances are very deceptive and for this reason it is a very great pity the Attorney for the Company, Mr A. V. Harvey, is absent from the field. During his absence it is im possible to obtain any information the man ager in charge having received strict instruc tions that no information was to be given respecting the property, and no one is to be allowed underground without a written order from h...
THE IVANHOE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
THE IVANHOE. The lode has been struck at the lOCft level in the east shaft of the Ivanhoe. The work ing is situated near the north-east corner of the property on a cross reef connecting the Ivanhoe and the Great Boulder main reefs. The lode at a depth of 20 or 30ft underlie out of the pit, which was carried down vertically. At the point at which the reef went out of the shaft the stone was of good grade, and there is no doubt it will be found to be rich at the 100ft level Under instructions from the Melbourne board of directors, however, Mr Lynch, the manager, is compelled to withhold all information from the press and public for 48 hours after sending wires in forming the board of any developments. In consequence of this, he will not be able to give give any information until a day or two has elapsed. Still some idea of the importance of the find may be gleaned from thefact that astrongdoorsecurely barred and locked was fitted to the mouth of the shaft soon after the find was made,...
COOLGARDIE NEWS. COOLGARDIE, May 28. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 4 June 1896
COOLGARDIE NEWS. (PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [By TELEGRAPH.1 COOLUARDIE, May 28. Before Messrs Gordon and King, J's.P., in the Police Court to-day, Edward Rubble was sued by Wm. Gibson for £8, wages due for 8 weeks at £1 per week. Mr Vyner appeared for the defendant. Gibson said he was qn gaged for £1 per week and his " tucker" by Hubble, and had been driving a dray and two horses for accused and doing other work. He had been engaged on April 5, and all defen dant had given him was 2s for tobacco. On Monday he asked for the balance due, and Hubble told him to do his best, and refused to pay him. Cross-examined : Hubble engaged him in Bayley-street on April 5. He was no scholar, and had asked another man who had been working for Hubble what date he started. He reckoned up the date the best way he could. He had Bs or 6s when he went to Hubble. He had been carting water for Rubble, and looked after his horses. When he went out to the 42-Mile he had not said to Hubble, " You night as ...
