The locality of the new gold find by Messrs Arthur Blayney and John Cotterill (who are partners -in the discovery) is stated to be in the vicinity of Wandinatty Hill, some 20 miles from Yalgoo. The show is said to be looking very promising, and it doesn't, says the prospector, require a magnifying glass to see the stone in the gold already exposed.
Already the partners have had an offer to purchase right out. But wisely they have decided to take out a crushing or two before negotiating for its sale. (Murchison Times)
