THE LUCK OF MINING. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 3 May 1913
THE XiUCK OF MINING. When the Bullfinch Bast was floated in London with an excessive capital, it was genially believed that they ?were too near the intrusive granites to have any' luck; yet in the limited and father ill-directed work which was ^n-nrt +.Tip.v e-ot on to a flat enrichment in one of their lodes, from wHieh they took 22 tons for a return of 113ozs. It so happened that, had tUeir drive been five feet deeper, or nearer the surface, this would have been mi3sed. There was no doubt about the dab which was obtained in the Bullfinch East, but the one found on the Chaf &ntk was openly said to be a fraud. Surely the finding of a little patch on ?the ?east of the big mine indicates that ether patches might be found on the other entL of thia Proprietary's block? Now, the Adelaide syndicate, who are working the old' Bullfinch East, are sinking a new shaft, and when a depth is reached which corresponds with the level in which the patclv was obtained tiisy intend to make a co...

THRIFTY LABOURER, [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 3 May 1913
THRIFTY LABOURER, A notable example of thrift came be- fore a West Wales Old-age Pension Sub-committee a few days ago (says the " Weekly Mail" ), when it tran- spired that an applicant stated that he had been a road labourer, and kept a small holding of six acres. His earnings throughout his lifetime had never ex- ceeded 13s per week as a road labourer. He had been for many years on 12s and 11s a week respectively. He was now unable to work. He had been twice married, and had children. All he pos- sessed had been obtained through his own thrift. He had managed to save the £700 by looking after every penny and spending no money on waste. His aim all through life had been to provide for old age. He was commended by &nbsp; the committee on his thrift, one mem- ber stating tat he was the best specimen of humanity he had ever seen. He was &nbsp; granted 2s. a week pension.

GIRL BURGLAR IN MEN'S CLOTHES. BOBS HOUSES AT INSTIGATION OF CRIMINAL LOVER. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 3 May 1913
GIRL BURGLAR IN MEN'S CLOTHES. ROBS HOUSES AT INSTIGATION OF CRIMINAL LOVER. Danbury, Connecticut, is greatly ex- cited over the arrest of Amy Travers, a pretty girl of twenty-three, whose people are among the most respected citizens in the town. She was caught &nbsp; in the act of robbing a house. Miss Travers was dressed in man's clothing, which she confessed was given her by a confederate, George Smith, a notorious thief. Smith, who is a presentable fellow, by some means got the girl in love with him, and ap- parently has been employing her in the commission of crime. The girl is infatuated with the bur- glar, and refuses to give any informa- tion which might lead to his capture. From the partial confession she has made, however, several robberies of houses are attributed to the girl, work- ing under the direction of Smith. The affair has caused the greatest sensation, because Amy Travers is ex - ceedingly popular at Danbury, and was a teacher in one of the local Sunday s...
PERTH GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 3 May 1913
PERTH GOSSIP (By James Smith. &nbsp; &nbsp; After weary waiting a loan of two &nbsp; millions is available to this state. At least it will be after the 28th of this month. No loan was ever so univer- sally welcomed before. We had'not &nbsp; only come to the end of our tether; we &nbsp; had passed that stage some time ago. Many accounts were not paid that would have been under other cir- &nbsp; cumstances, and short credits, such as &nbsp; the £100,000 from the Commonwealth, to be repaid out of the London money, as well as the usual overdrafts from the associated banks and the London aad Westminister' Banks can now be &nbsp; refunded. The Under -Treasurer is &nbsp; sure to try and have as nearly as pos- 'sible a clean slate, except for the &nbsp; money which the State Treasurer has lent himself from the Savings Bank. That money, being at low interest, is sure to stand for a long time. The result must be t...

COOLGARDIE'S ASSOCIATED MINERALS. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 10 May 1913
COOLGARDIE 'S ASSOCIATED MINERALS. All geologists, in their past reports, have agreed as to the . minerals asso ciated with the Coolgardie ore bodies, which have been found, «,s a rule, I in close conneection with gold. The | most important of these minerals are, according to Mr. Blatchford, sulphides and arsenides of iron, and sulphides and carbonates of copper. As a source of gold, arsenical pyrites has, so far, proved to be thee most produc tive, especially in Ba-yley's United Gold Mines (gold mining leases 133,, 139), where the pyrites carries large quantities of gold, both in the1 free and combined state. . . In other mines, such as the Flag staff (gold mining leases 1604, 1605), and Jubilee (gold mining lease 3511), the arsenical pyrites is more or less mixed with sulphides of iron, and is ox lower grade. Occurring in most of the lodes opened out. below water lavel ar© large quantities of iron sulphides; these assume two forms — ordinary iron pyrites anil pyrrhotine (magnetic ...

In an extensive colony such as this there are two totally distinct - classes of geological survey wora. necessary to meet the public -requirements/ '.' 'The first is the detailed examina'; ' tion of the important mining .centres, and comprises the accurate mapping of the geological formations, the ac cumulation of information relating to ? the oecurence of the various ore de posits, and their mode of formation. In the search for new deposits, and in defining limits of those already known, the geologist has to be guided ''to a' large extent by a . knowledge of,, the methods by which particular ore' bodies - have been formed; for it is only in ? this way that the peculiarities of their j distribution can be anticipated an!d j their continuity forcasted.

' ?'The payable gold is, without ex ? ception, found in the cementing ma terial of the quartz patches, the quartz pebbles themselves being uctrren, which' is a considerable detriment, as this barren matrix has, as in cue 'Banket' in South Africa, to 'be treated with the cementing material before the gold can be recovered from the latter.
