Queensland Gold Production. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 24 November 1900
Queensland G-old r;, Production. •; In. gold mining circles—and even outside for that matter—a .good deal of interest is being taken in -the ques tion whether Queensland will this year top the million ounces in the gold-out put—not that there is any thing special, about reaching these figures other than that they stand out as a fixed point. The year before last we were envious of the fortune of Western Australia in scrambling just over the million, for those who know have not much doubt about the comparative rigliness of the two countries. Queensland lias been unfortunate in comparison in the amount of capital that has been invest ed in her territory. Last year hopes ran high that they would-reach the million ounces in out pur, but they fell short of it by over l50,000 ounces, the exact output, as given in, the returns being 947,626oz., which, it might be mentioned, was an increase of 27,578oz„ on the previous year. For soma portion of the year hope was much stronger, as for a coupl...
