HERBERTON MIXING. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 28 March 1891
HERBERTOX MIXING. Mining matters during the week hare been brisk. In shares the most noticeable event was the drop in Muidivas. Several large parcels were sent here for sale, and they j found ready purchasers down to 6s for con j tributing. 1 he local brokers report that duriag the fall about 4,COO shares hare been bought in this district. So far as can be gathered 110 local holder lias quitted. The mine still con tinues to look magnificent, and the drop in shares is only owing to market- operations. Local holders cannot, however, be scared, and wlilie the mine continues to develop as it is doing local shareholders will increase their interests.

The assays from the Anniversary this week here ranged up to 660ozs, a truly surprising result. A parcel of ore sent to Montalbion for assay, gave up to SSOozs. The...

Scientific Notes. Hints to Prospectors. IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 28 March 1891
m Hints to Prospectors. [Br JL. W. CLARKE, F.O.S.] IV. THE recognition of tin ores is always a simple matter with the blowpipe, and. even without tbat instrument tin stone could never be missed if the experiment ^so successfully tried by the Herberton explorers) is tried on the -sample. The details were given in the first article. Another simple and certain test is that of the u streock" (i.e. powder), presently to be described. Three minerals are often confounded with tin stones. These are : Wolfram, Titanic Iron, Garnets To distinguish these different minerals by the streak, select three clean samples, one of each of the above, powder it finely, and lay the powder on the clean steel anvil, finally drawing the carefully polished face of the Jiaimner over the powder, using considerable force so as to compel the powder to stick to the anvil, or all but stick.
