Mining Notes. AT the Monarch, Harrietville, the main tunnel is now out to 515ft. An air blower has been installed and pipes laid to a distance of SOOft. The rise at 140ft. level has been holed through to 100ft. level. Mr J. Trevena, who is doing some pros pecting for a line of reef opposite Gander's old claim at Growler's Creek. Wandiligong, considers the prospects he has recently met of sufficient encourage ment to warrant further development work. It will be remembered that the Melburnian dredge in passing this spot brought to the surface a number of quartz boulders containing gold. Mr Trevena has also unearthed a number, and is of opinion that the line of reef is still further ahead. Messrs Gribble Bros, and party cleaned up last week from a crushing of 30 tons put through their own battery, from Butler's reef. The return was much better than those obtained of late, the stone averaging lOdwtp. per ton. This crushing was broken out in four weeks. The directors of the Home Reefs G....
