Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
Mining Notes. At a depth of 143ft in the Blroe fn Hill Extended an influx of water equal to about 700 gallons a day has been struck. Good gold has been struckin driving north on the lode from the east shaft on the Mari tana. Some of the specimens are very showy. The last crushing from Fraser's mine, Southern Cross, reported on the 11th instant, was 510oz 19dwt of gold from 800 tons of stone. Rich gold has been struck in the Starlight, south-east of the Great Boulder. It is in a schistose lode showing gold very freely in the stone. The crosscut at the 100ft level of the Oroya mine is 13ft into the lode. It, however, looks as if the footwall was being approached, and the ore is not so rich as it was nearer the hanging wall. Tuesday's bulk assay show'ed a return of I4 ounces. The are body is an immense one, and the average value is high. Mr Griffiths, of the South African Gold Recovery Company. has made several pur chases of properties during the last few days. Among others secured by ...

Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
Mining Notes. A slug weighing 22oz was picked up on the General Gordon last Saturday. It was found about 200 yards from the main shaft. A splendid looking lode of ironstained grey quartz is being opened up in the Ristori mine, White Feather. It carries fine gold all through it. and although the width can not be determined in the shallow workings, it is evidently a very large body of good stone. We are informed by Mr A. V. Harvey that all the shares being applied for in the Black Flag Main Reef G.M. Co., viz., 25,000 the list is now closed. The Boulder Main Reef is opening up splendidly, and the pile of ore at grass is so big and rich that it is intended to erect re duction works by the time the main shaft is down to water level. The sale of Hannan's Central is to be completed this week, the purchase money being £25,000, equal to about 16s per share. As is so often the case the bulk of the shares are believed to have been secured by the purchasing syndicate or their representatives a...

Mining News. HANNAN'S OROYA. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
Mining News. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) IANNAN'S OROYA. The luck of the Brookmans still sticks to them. The latest manifestation of the manner in which all they touch turns to gold is the wonderful development in Hannan's Oroya. This mine has always been regarded as a, good average show, and as such was floated in London by Mr G. W. Brookman some months ago. The reef opened up by the prospectors was not a very big one, but it turned out rich stone, and a small trial crushing gave a return of several ounces per ton. Still it was not regarded as a mine that would set the Thames on fire, or in other words, compete with the best half dozen on the field. This, however, is what it now promises to do, and there is little room to doubt it will shortly rank among our richest mines. It is situated on the east side of the main mineral belt of the district, and lies between the Iron Duke, one of the Cool gardie properties, and the North Boulder, formerly known as the Eureka. In the early days th...
WALDON'S FIND. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
WALDON'S FIND. The Waldon's Find Gold Mining Com pany are pushing on with the opening up of the mine. Mr Adam, the manager, informs me that in the main shaft at T5ft an iron stone and quartz reef 2ft wide has been cut. A drive was put in to the westward on a distinct lode formation nearly 14ft wide, carrying visible gold, as well as fine gold. Dish assays give a 2oz prospect. The main shaft has been sunk to a depth of 85ft, the lode being in the shaft all the way down from where it was met with, showing gold all .the way down. On the eastern reef at the present time stone is being raised of splendid quality. This stone dollies very rich, as much as l4oz being obtained from 41b of stone. The reef is about 3ft wide at a depth of 55ft. There is yet another reef on the property called the western reef. This has been sunk on to a depth of 92ft. Five assays of samples of this reef gave a return of 39oz to the ton. The company have ordered machinery from London, which includes a 10 head of...
NORTH BOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
NORTH BOULDER. This mine, which was floated in England some few months ago, is being opened up in a systematic manner under the management of Mr H. Lyon, an experienced gold miner, who for a long time was on the Indian gold fields. The line lies next the Oroya and must get the continuation of the lode now being opened up in that mine. There is one good thing about the reefs of the district they are continuous, and it is safe to pre dict that any lode will be picked up in any given mine, so long as it is on the true course of the formation. Mr Lyon is adopting the right lines in open ing up his mine by sinking to the 100ft level and then crosscutting. to find out what the ground contains. The north shaft has attained the necessary depth and a start has been made to crosscut east and west. The west working is in 45ft and the east 20ft so that before long the big formation should be met with. At the same time the shaft is being sunk to water level in the hope of securing a supply, and ...
BANK OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
BANK OF ENGLAND. It is very unusual for a shoot of rich gold to be found on the surface in a north-west and south-east shaft in this district, but this has been done at the Bank of England. Within a hundred feet of the main shaft the outcrop of a lode was discovered recently, and on its being opened up it was found that the reef averaging fifteen inches on the surface was full of gold. A start was made to open up this formation, and to a depth of 8ft or* 10ft the lode shows gold all through' it, and is esti mated to yield many ounces per ton. This lode is a parallel line running about 50ft west of the main line of reef and in addition to opening it up on the surface, the crosscut from the 100ft level will be continued after cutting the main line for the purpose of testing the west vein at this level. It will be remembered that in the shallow workings put down by the prospectors a trial crushing of a few tons gave a return of several ounces per ton, and it is to cut the continuation ...
CRICKET. ADELAIDE, March 16. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896
CRICKET. (BY TELEGRAPH.) ADELAIDE, March 16. The premier cricket matches were resumed on Saturday. North Adelaide, playing against Port Adelaide, made 430 for the loss of two wickets. Clem Hill made 106 when he was caught out. He played faultless cricket, and scored at a great pace. South Adelaide made 105 against Hindmarsh, who replied with 33 for two wickets. On Sunday afternoon a cricket match Kalgoorlie v. Boulder-road was played on the local Recreation Reserve. The visitors batted first, but only compiled 27 runs, Kither, Trevilian, Henderson, and Lean doing good execution with the ball. Kal goorlie made 88 runs, of which Rowe and Trevilian contributed 21 each, and S. Ward 14. The players were greatly disgusted with the state of the pitch, it being positively dangerous to face fast bowling, and several of those who took part were injured. The committee of the club should at once do something to improve their ground.
