MINING AND STOCKS AND SHARES, The Sunset lease, over which the Golden Valley Excelsior G.M. Co., Ltd., recently obtained an option, is now to be taken over by a new company, the Sunset G.M. Co., Ltd., which has been successfully floated in Perth. The latter company was registered last week and intend immediately pushing ahead with development work. 'The regis tered offices are situated at 32 and 34 Weld Chambers. DEPARTMENTAL NOTES. The following notes on the mining indus try for the week ended June 3 have been received from the Mines Department: The Mining Registrar at Mount Magnet reports as follows: Tom Payne, prospector, reports a new dis covery by him 110 miles south-south-west of Mount iMagnet, 50 miles south-east of Field's Finn, and eight miles north of Clinch's Goodingnow Station. He has ap plied for four leases containing, 78 acres. s'ayne has a high opinion of the find and the country generally. Forwarding further particulars by ma$i. Geological Survey of Western Australia. On !the 23rd inst. ,r. Talbot, Assistant Go vernment Geologist, and Mr. Honman left Perth Jfor Southern Cross to examine the country to the west of the M'ulline-Lawlers road and south of that between Sandstone and Lawlers, thus making a start on those flying surveys which are aesigned to link up geologically the known mining centres. The results should afford a valuable guide for prospecting purposes. During the month of April Mr. Torrington Blatclhford, tempor ary Field Geologist, was 'engaged upon field work at Coolgardie. Water Supplies.-With the object of pro viding an adequate water-supply near the leases eight or 10 miles north-west of the Pigeon Rocks, at the locality known as Yarbu, North Yilgarn, a boring party from the Mines Water Supply Department is now engaged in this vicinity. Approval has also been given for the sinking of a well about half-ivay between Nungarra and the 16-Mile Well, Murchison goldfield. Nannine District.-The total gold yield in the Nannine district during the mohth of April was 5,627:35 fine oz. from 5,002.8 tons of ore milled. The State battery at Meeka tharra was kept running consistently, and the Quinis State battery treated 211 tons for 153.93 fine oz. At Nannine the Cale donian -mine is raising stone and carting it to Day Dawn. The Champion' South Mine is raising payable ore; and the four head battery lately erected is running satis factorily. ' Among several good crushings reported the principal are those of the In -gliston Consols Extended iine, 1,150 'tons njilled for 1.298.34 fine oz.; the Marmont, 570 tons for 477.91 fine oz.; the Parramatta af Quinns, 150 tons for 113.94 fine oz. Satis factory reports have come in 'from Jilla warra, the .Gibraltar Rock having struck an exceptionally: rich leader, from which 256oz. were dollied. Rich specimen stone is beingtraised from this claim, and several leases have been pegged in the vicinity and suirrounding reserve. The scarcity of water 'has retarded prospecting throughout the district. Cue District.-During. April the Hidden Treasure returned 339.36oz. gold from' 180 tons of ore: The snlendid returns thus ob. tained have brought the locality under notice again. •A number of holdings have been applied for,' and are being .prospected. The Lord Nolan returned 19.01oz. fsom 17. tons of 'ore. : On"the Hidden Treasure 18 men arq now employed, and, a further parcel of 300,t tos is being milled this month, the value of which is estimated at 3oz. to the tois. Developments at the .bot tom level of the Princess Royal' are .not satisfactory. - Driving is still 'being . car ried on. . Parcels. of ore are being .raised from :the Duke of, York,. Dewdrqp, Happy :Jack, .and Depot mines, and from severoal' :prospecting areas, from which good returns are expected.. .Work has been stopped of. the Barrambie Ranges G.M., the company going into liquidation. Messrs. Paton andl Hayes report a return of £225 for'1.44 tons of wolfram obtained -from Mineral Lease No. 11, west of Cuddingwarra, .and representing six weeks' work'by.the two-lpsees. Day .Dawin.-In the Day Dawn district the. April returns were .9.049.75 tons of ore treated for .3,468.19oz0s. . Peak. Hill.. Goldfield.-The Mining Regis trar. at Peak Hill reports a find on .the Pealk 'Hill-Wiluna.road, 30 miles, from Pek. 'Hill. One lease and four prospecting areas: have been applied' for., About 15 men are. on the ground, but so -far'very little work has been done. ' The' country .is stated to,ibe likely-looking. There are only a few rich floaters, two of which are estimated to con: salh 25oz. of g6ld. Yalgod Goldfield.-On'this field quiet, the only. producer 'during April being the Royal" Standard leases at Yuin.' . Mount Magnet District.-The Black Hill Development Co.'s leases crushed 819 tons of ore; during 'April, the return from. all sources beig '423.66 fine dz. gold. The St. George lease returned 596.43 fine oz. dur ing the same period, and milled 1,797 tons of ore. Cash Bros..obtained' a fuither 331.93 fine oz. of dollied gold from the Boo gardie View lease, making a total of 7.50.05 oz. in 'two months. . . Greenbushes f Tinfield.-At Greenbushes rich deposits of tin are now being obtained from Hynes and Scully's property at Spring Gully. With the coming of the rain in this district'more energy has been displayed in mining. The floating dredge at New Zea land Gully is about to be removed to an other of the Greenliushes Development Co.'s pr'operties. ' " I Phillips River Goldfield.-The total out put of metallic copper for ,the month of April on this field was'139.03 tons, valued at £7,537, .produced from 2,176 tons of cop per ore. The total. gold produced was 218 oz. Black Range District.-The' gold returns from the Black Range district show i slight decrease during the month of April, during which period 9,235.50 tons of ore were

treated for a yield or o,5tu..o one oz. an. 242 fine oz. of dollied "old. The Black Range. Mining Co., N.L., are erecting a slimes plant on their lease, which will be completed in about a fortnight.' Scruby and party, of the Lady Sedcon Lease,. No. 633, at Hancocks, treated a parcel of 25 tons for a return of 26.32 fine oz. The MIon tagu Boulder lease at Montagu crushed 220 tons for 115.85 fine oz. The district in general has been quiet during the !period under review. Prospecting operations have been greatly retarded for want of rkin. Wiluna.-It is understood that work at the New England centre has ceased for a time. Mining at Wiluna was quiet during the mbnth, but the local State battery is expected to recommence operations shortly. A good deal of activity in prospecting seems to be in evidence at Mount Keith, which lies nearly midway along the track between Lawlers and Wiluna, and to the north-east of Mount Sir Samuel. Lawlers District.-The output for April from the Lawlers district was 2,155 fine oz. from 7,209 tons of ore, 16oz. alluvial, and 4oz. dollied. The five-head battery at the Vivien Gem, near Harris, started recently, and has been running for about a fortnight. The owner now expects to crush at the same cost that he previously incurred for cartage to the Cinderella mill. The ore is all broken below, whence it goes direct into the hopper of the self-feeder. The Inspector of Mines was favourably impressed with the plant. At the end of last month the In spector pf Mines visited the'. Mount Keith district, \previously mentioned herein, and after describing the various properties he remarks, "The reef on which the above-men tioned work is being done 'runs in very true alignment on the surface, and can he seen outcropping in an unbroken line for very many chains in length, and is, in my opinion, well worth extensive development. A request has been made that this centre should be connected with the Wiluna district instead of hawlers, it being considered that Wiluna is the more convenient centre at which to transact mining business." Leonora District.-The output for April for this district totals 7,241.99 fine oz., being an increase of 229oz. over the return of the previous month. The tonnage treated was 15,036 tons, this likewise showing a slight increase. During the month a good deal of attention was paid to Mount Red cliffe, situate about 20 miles north of Mer tondale. This country was worked some years ago by prospectors with very fair re suits, but the cost of carting and crushing was found to be too heavy to admit of pro fitable working. There are understood to be three lodes running through the ground, all of good size and easily worked. and with the expenditure of capital so that the lodes can be tested at a depth there is every probability of this locality turning out a good mining district. Another good yield was obtained during the month from the Victory mine at Mount Clifford, 20 tons of ore being treated for 108.86 oz., and ore of equal grade is still being raised. The Star light mine at Pig Well treated 491 tons for 204.55oz. THE GOLD YIELD. APRIL CRUSHINGS. Kalgoorlie, June 3.
