WARATAH. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 12 August 1874
WA.RATAI. TIuERE is splendid news from the Hanbury Gold Mining Company's claim, and some of our townsmen are buying up all the shares they can get hold of. I am credibly informed that since the company have had their new machine erected they have had four crushings of stone. The first averaged 2) dwts. to the ton, the second 5 dwts., the third 17 dwts. 11 gres., and the fourth 1 oz. 6 dwts. Accord ing to reports they anticipate next crashing to yield still better, as the gold can be seen quite plain in the stone. They are at present work ing a vein in the reef from 3 feet to 5 feet wide, lying nearly horizontal. It is estimated that 5 dwts. will pay all expenses, as the stone is so easy to get. The Hen. John Sutherland (Minister for WVorks) paid us a visit yesterday. Mr. R. Turton and Alderman Watson attended upon him, and brought prominently before his notice the principal requirements at the railway station. The chief matters represented to the Minister were the enlargement of the...
