LAKE VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
LAKE VIEW. Under Mr Dave O'Neil a great deal of de velopment work is going on in this mine in addition to blocking out the levels opened up, and keeping the batteries supplied with ore. Already the immense lode which tra versed the property has been proved by shaft sinkiug to run from one end to the other of the two claims constituting the mine, but this is not enough. As rapidly as the work can be pushed on consistently with economy and good management the lOOft level is being carried from one end of the leases to the other and within a short time this work will have been accomplished. Already the dri ve is in eight hundred feet out of the 2,000 feet constituting the length along the line of lode held by the company, and for the whole of this distance the width of the formation is about 10 feet, and the value from two to three ounces per ton. The balance of the distance has been proved by means of shafts sunk down three hundred feet apart, which have told the same flattering tale t...
GREAT BOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
GREAT BOULDER. The battery recently erected by the Great Boulder Company will be started to-day. The first five heads of stamps will be set going, and the other five will be brought into work as speedily as possible. This will probably mean a considerable increase in the output of the mine within a short time, as the battery owned by the Leviathan Crushing Company will be kept running as welL The increase, however, will not stop here, but the battery will be increased to 30 heads as speedily as possible. Already ten heads are on the ground, and the additional ten heads will be delivered within a few weeks. The use of Watsonand Denny's amalgamated pans will also increase the yield by saving some of the gold now left in the tailings and slimes. These are in position, and will be set going simultaneously with the battery. The com pany is well supplied with water, as it is now found impossible to keep the 200 feet level free from water which stands two feet above the plat. In the Christ...
Mining News. THE OROYA. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
Mining News. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) THE OROYA. The crosscut at the l00ft level of the Oroya has at length been carried through the lode, the footwall having been struck on Friday. The crosscut passed through 20ft of ore, but it intersects the lode obliquely, and it is estimated that the true width of the formation is 16ft or 15ft. After the first 10ft had been passed through the lode became poorer and averaged for several feet not more than ljoz to 2oz per ton. As the footwall was approached, however, the ore rapidly rose in value, and on the wall it is simply full of the precious metal. Some of the specimens obtained aro very heavy in gold, which is in fine particles, forming nests of deposited gold all through the stone. The richness of the latest specimens exceeded the most sangine hopes of Captain Oats, the general manager of the mine, who . is satisfied that he has opened up one of the best lodes on the field. A start will now be made to drive north on the course of the reef...

THE THREATENED MINING STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
THE THREATENED MINING STRIKE. Nothing further of importance has oc curred with regard to the threatened strike of Newcastle miners. Contrary to expectations the Miners' Delegate Board did not sit. The officials of the Miners Association show great reticence in affording any information as to the state of affairs. Mr Curley, the secre tary and manager, keeps away from press representatives. The situation altogether is one of uncertainty. All sorts of rumors are about. It is stated now that non-union pits will keep at work if a strike is resolved upon, and that there will also be a dissension among union pits. If so it will largely destroy the effect of the strike. Some state that the northern miners were relying upon the active co-operation of the Southern Miners' Association even to the extent of a simultaneous sympa thetic strike, but it is now rumored that the southern, or Illawarra, miners de cisively refuse to join in the movement to that extent. Consequently there is no chance ...

TRESPASSING ON LEASES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 26 March 1896
TRESPASSING ON LEASES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-" Man's inhumanity to man makes countless thousands mourn." The truth of this has been exemplified during the past week. I was present when the trespass case was being iheard-the Ivanhoe versus C. Tindall, the Warden giving his deci sion against the defendant with costs. Now. Sir, I would like to ask the Warden, througl4your columns, where is a man to live when he is out of work and of what use is a miner's right to him? If the Ivanhoe Company can compel a man to move-though thank God the managers are not all Lynch's-then it follows as a matter of course that other companies have that power. Now, sir, there are at present two or three families living on the extreme boundary of the Ivanhoe who have received notice to quit, and they have been to con siderable expense in erecting comfortable places to live in, and have complied with the Health Act in every particular, yet they are forced to go through, not living near any of the shafts or othe...
