MINING. PILBARRA GOLDFIELD. TALGA TALGA. July 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 30 July 1897
MINING. PILBARRA GOLDFIELD. TALGA TALGA. (FECI! on OWN COHEEsrONDKNT). July 22. 1 bft Jubilee lease is looking splendid. ! On Tuesday last several pretty speci mens were discovered, and high grade ore is now being broken down from the place where they were obtained. About 60 tons of stone are at grass and carting was commenced on Monday last to the battery, which startird crushing on Tues day. As stone is easily got out it is probable 80 or 100 tons will be put through. Much surprise was expressed locally when it was known tlmt three weeks further protection ending on the 31st instant, had been granted for the Star | of the North. This makes seven months i exemption out of nine. It is to be hoped the present owners will either ! j work the mine, as it certainly deserves i i to be. or r-linquisli it, and thus allow j others to take it up who are willing to ! | do so. Nothing has been heard of a buyer for the McPhee's Reward battery, and this is noted with ph-jjsure as the longer it. ...
NULLAGINE. July 20. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 30 July 1897
KULL&GINE. (from our own •correspondent.) July 20. Considerable satisfaction is displayed here with regard to tin: way in which the local -quartz reefs are opening up. The Great Eastern, without douht one of the best shows 011 the Pilbarra field, is looking richer than ever. Last Mon day the reef was broken down in three places—in the sink and the drive, and in the other shaft—and in each place the stone was fairly covered with coarse gold, which showed freely in all stone broken. On Cook's Hill conglomerate lease very rich stone has been also obtained, looking 1«tter by far than any conglom erate yet struck, being at least 5 oz. stone. The Syndicate battery has just cleaned up a crushing of 22 tons from Flynn's claim on the Cajeput for a yield of 30 dwts. to the ton. I am glad to hear that Mr. James Isdell has been appointi-d general manager to the Consolidated G.M. Co., and the Imperial W.A. Corporation, as well as the North West Australian Goldfields Ltd., and that the di...

YANDICOOGINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 30 July 1897
YANDICOOGrIN A. Though several of the Yaridicoogina claims h ive exemption, and others are concentrating labour, considerable work is being done in the diivfctiou of opening up the properties, and these effbrts have so far met with great success, as the more development work done the more enhanced are the prospects of the leases from a gold-yielding point, of view. The Eastern looks well, something like 50ft of trenching having been carried out, stojie yf good gold bearing capacity being taken out, und a tidy parcel will be submitted for treatment as hoon as crushing facilities are avail able. Two shafts have been put down on the Trilby, 200 yards distant from each other, th-ir depths being respectively 45ft and 47ft, the mine looking very promising, there being plenty of good stone easily obtainable. Fifty feet is the maximum depth of any shaft on the Uncle Tom leases, and even at this shallow sinking water is abundant, which seems to indicate that pumping machine-y wiil necessary ...
