Between 40 and 50 bores have been put down to a maximum depth of a little over 1000 feet. The best seam &nbsp; found is one of 2 feet 6 inches. It was met with at 1,014 feet. A bore has also been sunk to 1,700 feet at Sorrento, without success, and ar- rangements are being made for a simi- lar test at Cape Schanck. The Kirrak basins adjoins the State coal mine reserve on the east. All ap- plications for private leases there have held up pending the completion of these boring operations.
