ADELAIDE GOLD CIRCULAR. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 30 August 1852
ADELAIDE GOLD CIRCULAR. The report of the discovery of a workable Gold Field io Sooth Australia was received in Adelaide on Monday last with considerable suspicion. From the result of previous rumours, the public had learned to exercise caution, and not to be satisfied without something tangible. Numerous parties of Mount alexander gold diggers and others have alreadv visited the Onkaparinga Gold Field ; and though there be not an unanimous opinion upon the subject, yet there appear to be sufficient indications on the Burface to warrant the expectation that pro* Stable workings being found as soon as the ground gets sufficiently dry to admit of sinking. A great many samples have been exhibited in town, which are of a bright colour and nuggetty form, with iron in the crevices; bat I have not jet heard of any of it having been subjected to the test of au assay.

For some days previous most of the wine and spirit merchants busied themselves in taking rum out of bo^d, which they did in larpe quantities, the receipts at the Custom House for the few davs ranging from £8 oro to £12,000. The duty ôn ram is now 7s, brandy the same, tea 3d per lb, gugar exempt. The markets genarally have not been character- ised by many transact ons worthy of note. '! he transactions in timber have been very great, and the demand still continues. Several cargoes from Van Dieman's Land have been sold privately at 30s per 100 feet, which price is readily given by the trade. Deals have also participated in the same advance ; these are chiefly ia the hands of one holder, who has the market almost entirely under his control and consequently asking any price he chooses.

THE ONKAPARINGA DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 30 August 1852
THE ONKAPARINGA DIGGINGS. Srs CE oar last issue, nothing important of a novel kind has occurred at the Diggings. The scene has been visited by hundreds of persons, some of them experienced gold finders; ard nearly all the visitors have tried their hands at washing. As the greater portion of them were amateurs, and the mode of working very desultory, it was not to be expected that they would be able to speak of large lesults. Almost every one, however, succeeded in obtaining more or less of the precious metal ; and patting together all the statements of a credible kind which have reached us, we think we are safe in saying that half a dozen pounds of gold have been collected. This is pretty well, for so holiday a style of labour as has been general. The ground is much too wet at present to allow of thorough exploration. It will pro- bably besóme weeks,even with fine weather, before it can be positively known whether the lower strata are sufficiently rich to pay for sinking holes and w...
