A new discovery of silver ore has been made near Mount Sorrell, and assays of some specimens taken from it are said to have yielded 120ozs of silver to the ton. There were formerly some gold workings in the locality, but they were abandoned as un payable, the existence of silver not then being, thought of at Mount Sorrell.

MINING SUMMARY FOR FEBRUARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 March 1891

MINING SPMMARf FOR Fr BRUARY. IN mining circles the month of February has been by no means uninteresting. fh&amp; work that has been done, the rehires and the expenditure compare very favorably with any previous February. The prcspecte of the field have by no means declined, and the share m rket has been brisk.. The Bril iant Block and the Brilliant and Pt, George United are getting nearer to the hoped for reef. The last measurement showed that both claims have to sink a further distance of about 130ft before either of tbam could be expect.d to bottom. This at "the - present rate of progress would mean in sit weefcs - or two months. The Q.ueen CeDtral is apNgsfiBs^in to fetch the Queen Cross Beef, sib'e to get to a ' mining certainty J present the Queen Cross Reef has ad vane their No. 1 level to within 14ft of the bound ary, and have at this point a large body HE scone, and this dipping right into the Central shaft: but like a i mining venture?, the proof of tbe reef is only in...

Mulligan of the prospecting expedition by himself and nai-tv to the conglomerate in the Palmer dis trict* lias been received by the Mines, together with, the diary referred. to therein. It appears the party commenced their examination of the conglomerate on 2lst July, 1890, and concluded about the otu January, 1891 No good has so far resulted from our exertions more than that an exposition of the whole ol the country will be laid before you.

Scientific Notes. Hints to Prospectors. (Written for the NORTHERN MINING REGISTER.) [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 March 1891

>aenttfijc Hates. Hints to Prospectors. [BY A. W. CLARKE, F.CSLS.] (Written for the NORTHEBN MINI KG REGISTEB.) THE class of miners termed prospec tors arfe more handicapped than wo aid be imagined at first thought. When we reflect, however, that they have to. wander about with little else than a pick and a blanket, with some food; stuff or the plainest and lightest weight, that their experience in minerals, from a scientific point of view, is most crude, very often being limited to gold; that the invaluable little in strument, the blowpipe, is generally ignored. When we ponder over these facts it is surprising that so much successful prospecting has been a chieved. These articles are written with the view of suggesting simple and certain tests for identifying ores of economic value. It is lamentable to think thatr while tlie^e must be many good things awaiting1 discovery in this Northern Australia, yet the brave pioneers who face su^h great difficulties and dangers are so/ poorl...

Our Goldfields' Regulations. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 March 1891

&amp;lt;Gol«lfiel(is' RegiilAtloa§. SOME years ago a spasmodic effort was made to amend the G old field s' Regulations. Two very competent gentlemen were "selected by Government to frame new regula tions-suggestions wene invited from , all quarters and were freely given. A considerable amount of time was * consumed, and labor expended, in tlie work, and ultimately a fresh set of regulations was drafted. That step " having been attained, nothing mora appears to have been done. Wliy, we know not. Judges', officials^ miners and lawyers all combine in , condemning many of our mining by laws. One attribute of divinity they possess in perfection, and that is incomprehensibility; Many of them are open to various constructions-some to no constrac- ? * tion at all. There are to be found regulations seemingly in direct con flict with otherr, and even containing self-contradictions.

The Railway Passenger Fares. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 March 1891

Hub Rstiiwaj Omt-telegcams of Friday brought the unwelcome news tliat " the new passenger fares ojl most of the Nor thern lilies will fee increased after Monday." Whether the Northern line is to be included, amongst those on -which the feres are to be seised we do not know, but it is veiy pos sible that it will be. In the report issued by the Railway Commissioners for 1890 it will be found that - the Northern " railway, especially that portion of it between Charters 'Bowecft and Towns ville, was the best paying;' line in the colony, and the same De port also showed that some of the Brisbane suburban lines andothei? lines in the southern part ' of the colony were not paying working ex penses. While admitting that one of the first duties of the Railway Com missioners is to make the railways of the colony pay pt least interest on the cost of construction and ordinary' working expenses, we think they are not acting wisely in raising the pas senger fares on the Northern Hui Hg order to m...
