ALHAMBRA NORTH G.M. SYNDICATE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
ALHAMBRA NORTH G.M. SYNDlCATE. The lease has an area of 18 acres, and is situated at Smithfield, south of the Kingsley Hall and other mines. The same line of reef is running right through the property, as is shown by three shallow shafts put down at various points along the line of lode. No crosscutting has been done from this shaft to prove the wealth of the formation, and owing to the greater portion of the rocks being covered by soil, no walls or containing rocks are visible. The lode formation con sists :of decomposed felspathic rocks, inter mixed with Schist, quartz, and silicious ircn stone. Samples of lode stuff were taken from the shafts, and on being crushed and panned, gave excellent results. Towards the eastern boundary running parallel with the Kingsley Hall line of lode there is another formation which is highly auriferons, as ahown in the adjoining southern lease, where the formation has a promirent outcrop, from which silicious ironstone may be broken, showing gold.

THE GREAT OVERSIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
THE GREAT OVERSIGHT. This mine at the IO0 U looks very much at present as Lake View did in the very early days when the ore was being raised from the open mut near W.D's. shaft. There is the same big gash in the surface, the same schistose lode material, and last, but not least, the same doubt as to whether the lode goes down. In all these points the show closely resembles the Lake View of two years ago, and there is every possibility of its being an equal surprise in the future. The history of the Oversight is peculiar. Taken up originally by some prospectors in 1898 it was sold to Messrs Horn and Co., of Adelaide, for A4,000 without having been inspected on their behalf. As soon as the sale was com pleted the expert, who, when acting for that firm, had utterly condemned the Boulder, Lake View, and all the Hannan's properties, was sent to report. This gentleman was shown before leaving Adelaide some specimens of quartz carrying gold as coarse as the best ever turned out of the Bayl...
THE MOUNTAIN'S WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
THE MOUNTAINfS WEALTH. This property, containing 15 acres, is situated about one mile from Kalgoorlie on the Boulder-road, which runs through it. On the north it is bounded by the Maritana Extended, on the south by Brookman's Boulder and Hannan's Proprietary (Queen of the West group), and on the west .by the Ben Lomond. It has been worked by the prospectors and owners, a party of five, for over a year, and a lot of solid work has been done. No. 1 shaft, situated just on the edge of the Boulder-road is down. 70ft, where a lode has been met with 10ft wide, assays from which have given good results. A drive west from this shaft has been driven 150ft, where another lode has been met with which is 9ft wide so far, but its full width is not yet determined. A second shaft has been started 250ft west of No. 1 shaft, and is down 40ft, where another lode has been struck, which by position should be on the Boulder line of lode. A costeen near the shaft shows this lode to be at least 20ft wide ...
WHITE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
WHITE HORSBE. This mine Is situated on the Queen Mar garet line; immediately north of the Queen, and is now under offer.' In consequence no great amount of energy is being infused into the working of the mine during the currency of the option. The lode has been struck in' the western shaft and at this point it is wonderfully rich. The property is a good one and it is a pity greater energy is not being infused into the working of the block.
QUEEN MARGARET. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
QUEEN MARGARET. This mine, which was floated in Melbourne some months ago, has been well opened up to a depth of 100ft, and promises to be one of the big mines of the field. The manager, Mr Fred. Simpson, who was so long mine manager of Block 14, Broken Hill, has had charge since the property emerged from the prospecting stage, and it goes without saying the work has been done perfectly. His main shaft 10ft by 4ft in the lelar is an example of what may be accomplished with rough bush timber. The sides and ends are close timbered with poles, and are as true as if planked with sawn gum. This working is down to within a few feet of the 100ft level, and will be carried down to the 200ft as speedily as possible so as to secure a supply of water. The shaft will be divided into three compartments withsawn planks, and will then be equal to any working on the fields. The lode was originally opened by means of underlie shafts which were carried down to the 70ft level, but to facilitate work, ...
SLUG HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
.SLUG HILL. This property, which is held by an Ade laide Company, has a big stretch of country, including most of the alluvial workings which were so rich in the early days of the fields. One of the blocks, the Vulcan, is on the Queen Margaret line of lode, and has got the lode at the 100ft level. The stone being raised is very rich, and although situated some distance north of the Queen, the lode is evidently quite as good as in the mine which gives the name to the reef. In the other blocks three shafts are being sunk in a line running east and west across the strike of the country with a view to cross cutting for the lode, which is supposed to have shed all the gold met with in the alluvial workings. In the most western pit the required depth has been attained and a start made to crosscut towards the other shafts. This crosscut should do as much for the I O U as is being done for Kal goorlie by the big crosscut now 'being run in by Hannan's Proprietary Development Company. The wor...
Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
MIining Notes. It is reported that a rich strike has been maide in the prospector's shaft in the North Boulder at a depth of 80ft. The face of the south drive at the 200ft level of Hannan's Reward is still improving, both in appearance and gold contents. The Zealandia; one of the Corsair group of leases, is opening up splendidly. The lode shows good gold, and is wide and permanent. A 7ft reef carrying a little gold has been struck in the Ironsides, a claim adjoining on the west the Boulder Central and Golden Gate claims. The Great Boulder .Company has declared a dividend of 4s per slhare, payable this month. The last dividend of 2s per share was paid on May 7. The Sydney Stook Exchange is apparently realising the importance of Kalgoorlie, and is now among the subscribers to the MINER sund WESTERN ARGUS. The dry crushing plant on the Mount Charlotte is running satisfactorily, and a big parcel is being put through with a view to thoroughly testing the plant. The Queen Margaret mine at...
BARDOC MINING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
BARDOC MINING NOTES. It is reported that the John Bull South and the John Bull Extended have been floated locally. It is reported that the Harp of Erin, owned by Gorman and party has been placed under offer for a satisfactory figure. A rich alluvial find is reported to have been made about three miles east of the Struck Oil, but as no confirmation has yet been received there is nothing to warrant a rush. The Bardoc G.M. Co.'s property, known here as the " Bank of England," is being systematically developed under the capable management of Captain Davis. and some very rich stone is being paddocked daily. I hear that Mr P. McGonigle, manager of the Queenslander, has severed his connection with that property. Mr McGonigle is the original prospector of this valuable lease, and is now about embarking in some large mining speculatiens on his own account. Mr McGonigle deserves every success.
BALAGUNDI MINING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
BALAGUNDI MINING NEWS. Paris Gift.-Work is being rapidly carried on in the shaft on the Naratilla boundary. Two shifts are on and they are down 30ft. In the main shaft they are still engaged in cutting it down. Great Scotch Gold Hole.-The manager, Mr John Stephenson informs me that they have just cut a capital looking lode in No. 2 shaft at a depth of 40ft. The lode consists of sugary quartz and ironstone, prospects from which vary from one to three ounces. The width of the lode is not yet known. Paris Gift Extended.-The shaft is down this week to a depth of 66ft, and they are now going through a splendid lode carrying visible gold. The lode is composed of kaolin quartz and schist, and underlays north-west.
HANNANS GOLD REEFS. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
HANNANS t4OLD RBBIFS. This company has taken over the blocks originally known as the Bohemian Girl and Golden 1 heasant, End Mr Hunt formerly in charge of Cassidy's Hill has been appointed manager. Two shafts are down to the 115ft level, and Sinking is being continued in the the vertical pit, while in the old underlie shaft a start has been made to stope the 2ft lode of rich quartz which was followed down from the surface. A nice pile of the stone is at grass showing gold freely, and judging by the appearance of the ore it will crush well. The mine is in a good position and should catch one of the big lodes of the dis triot, when a crosscut is run across the country.
HANNAN'S REWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
HANNAN'S REWARD. A big flow of water, estimated at from 10 to 12 thousand gallons per day, has been stsuek at the 00ft level of this mine. The crosscut from the main shaft hlad been pre viously driven about 14 feet through lode material, consisting of quartz and diorite, carrying upl to 2oz per tor.. the gold being chiefly carried in the pyrites. On Monday, in drilling a hole in the face, the men struck a big flow of water which spurted out of the drill hole as from a fire hose. Ever since the miners have been working up to their knees in water, the tanks used for bailing the shaft being altogether inadequate to cope with the suppsy. The object of continuing work is to find the source of flow, and see what the lode is like. There is a very great change in the character of the ore, and it seems probable that instead of the lode the crosscut has been going through the casing of the reef. If this is so the same mistake has probably been made at the 200ft level where the same ma terial ...
HANNAN'S CONSOLS, LIMITED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
HANNAN'S CONSOLS, LIMITED. There is now little doubt the big formatioh being worked in Hannan's Consols, Limited, is the main lode opened up in Hannan's Reward. It is the same big porphoritic lode mtersected with quartz veins running in all directions. In places in these veins, and in the ore alongside, the stone is exceedingly rich, showing both fine and coarse gold all through it. The lode is being opened up at the 50ft level, and as yet its size has not yet been determined although it is evidently :a very big body. The very rich stone met with in the past few days is in the immediate vicinity of a big quartz leader which runs east and west through the lode. In the middle of the company's property has been struck a wide slatey formation 12 cr lift wide which carries payable gold all through it, It is a strong looking body of stone going down almost vertically, and on the east side of it there is a body of soft kaolin of very prepossessing appearance, but not very rich. On the east...
THE MARITANA EXTENDED. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
THE MARITANA EXATENDED. Two shafts have been sunk on this pro perty, and a good deal of crosscutting and driving done, but as yet no very big bodies of ore have been met with. The shafts have attained depths of 92ft, and it is intended to crosscut east to cut the Ben Lomond lode as soon as possible. The mine is being rapidly opened up, and is in such a good position that the manager is confident of cutting the lode on the east of him, as well as those being worked in the surrounding leases.
THE IVANHOE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
THE IVANHOE. The east lode which was struck at the 100ft level in this mine a few days ago is a splendid reef. Ah?eady it has been opened for a width of 5ft by means of a crosscut, which is being driven through it, and when invited to inspect it on Wednesday there was no sign of a footwallbeing approached. Like most of the lodes of the district this consists of aschistose material, ironstone and quartz, and in places the gold is very showy. In bands up to half an inch in width the gold, both coarseand fine, but especially the latter runs through the stone and the specimens obtained are splendid. The quartz is especi ally rich but the precious metal by no means confines itself to this, but occurs all through the formation. The manager estimates the value of the. lode so far as it has been opened up at six ounces per ton, and has apparently not overstated its value. The lode was worked to a shallow depth in the early times of the mine, but in the days when the Boulder was despised bec...
THE CROESUS. ANOTHER DISCOVERY OF TELLURIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
THEE CROESUS. ANOTHER DISCOVERY OF TELLURIDE. Since the discovery of telluride of gold ore in Block 45 a good deal of attention has been devoted to the search for similar stone in other mines. Mr J. Collet Moulden, one of the assayers of the town, has paid a great deal of attention to the question, and on Thursday was rewarded by discovering it in the stone from the deep levels of the Croesus water shaft. He examined a pile of quartz lying on the brace of the shaft, and thinking it contained 'elluride of gold asked permission to take samples for assay. The stone is very similar to that met with in Block 45, consisting largely of calcite mixed with quartz, and containing what appears to be carbonate of magnesia. On taking the samples to his laboratory, Mr Moulten found that the stone answered to all the tests for telluride, and what is more important under a blowpipe produced a good bead of gold. The vein -from which the -stone was taken was met with in sinking the water shaft betwee...
HANNAN'S WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
HANNAN'S WEALTH. At the 108ft level from the prospecting shaft in this mine the west crosscut is in 122ft, and has just got through a big flinty quartz reef. The reef is 8ft wide, and although it showed little or no gold by panning the manager has sent samples to be asayed so as to determine its value more closely. This is the third lode which has been inter sected by the crosscut, and it will be interest ing to watch the result of sinking on them from the I00t level, as it is intended to do as soon as.the two shafts on the property have been connected and ventilation thus secured. The main shaft is dowa to within a few feet of the 100ft level, and as soon as this depth has been attained it is intended to crosseut to meet the men driving from the prospecting shaft. A good deal of work has been done in a short time, and the results obtained have ~been fairly satisfactory.
HANNAN'S BEN LOMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
HANNAN'S BEN LOMOND. The main shaft on this mine has been sunk to a depth of 130ft, when sinking was stopped by an influx of water. A start was then made to crosscut east to the boundary of the block. This was done, and in the course of carrying out this work a 9ft lode and one measuring 2ft were struck. As soon as the boundary was reached a start was made to drive north on the lode, and this is now being done. A nice-looking paddock of mullocky quartz has been raised, and oc casionally a little gold is visible in the stone, while it all pans a fair prospect. A sample showing a little fine gold was sent to the secretary of the company in Adelaide, and gave a return of 2joz to the ton.
KALGOORLIE PROPRIETARY. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
KALGOORLIE PROPRIETARY. This mine continues to open up well, the new manager, Mr Odgers, finding it neces sary to reverse several decisions of his prede cessor, who reported that the lodes carried no gold. It will be remembered that a new lode about 5ft wide and carrying fair gold lvas struck in the middle of the block some days ago in crosscutting from the east to the west shaft. Close to this was a 2ft vein of quartz and iron carrying .payable gold, while alongside the big eastern there is a smaller lode carrying fair gold. Another and more important find has been made in the quartz lode at the western portion of the property, from which the early prospectors lollied sufficient gold to pay working ex penses. This, like all the other lodes dis covered before he left, was reported by the late manager to be a blank. During the last few days Mr Odgers has trie' twenty Samples from the quartz reef, and in each secured payable gold, while in several in stances the stone was rich. In one...
STAR OT THE WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896
S S8TAR OT THE WEST. This ~&aim, which was secured by Mr Griffiths, of the South African Gold Recovery Company, some little time ago, has struck good gold. For some time the manager, Mr Hancock, has been prospecting for the reef being worked in the Mount Charlotte North mine and on Friday he discovered the cap of the lode in costeening. Samples broken from the reef are very rich in fine gold, and the lode, which is from two to three feet in width, will be at once sunk on to test its value at a depth.
