MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 29 January 1914
MINING INTELLIGENCE. A temporary, though not unexpected, check to the work of rising into the wash at the New Langi Logan unine was reported by the mine manager on Tuesday. The rise was stated to have reached a height of 51 feet in good country, at which point the work of putting up test bores to ascertain the condition of the lead was apparently be gun. As a result, a second telegram was despatched from' the mine, stating that the water was too strong to permit of rising directly to the wash. The method of procedure, therefore, will now be to open out at a point 3 feet lower in the rise and drive to the wash, which will delay the entry into the lead a few days. As indicated in this column on Tuesday, the postponement of the completion of the rise was fore seen, and care has been taken by the construction of locks to protect the workings from any adverse develop. ment, such as a run of sand or flow of water. There does not, however, ap pear to be any reason for fear that any such mi...
