LATEST MINING. (Article), Empire (Sydney, NSW : 1850 - 1875), Friday 20 June 1873 [Issue No.6612] page 3 2017-07-20 12:40 week,, with nearly 2000oz gold. The principal sources
Examiner writes :— The weather during the week has been a
continuance of rain, which has produced the advantage that
sluicing parties have been able to get to work, but in other
respects it has proved an impediment to mining operations.
Many claims had too much water to contend with before the
wet weather set in, and now there has been such an increase as
to make the position anything but comfortable. Jack the
German had 17 tons of quarts from German Jack's reef,
crushed at the Ironbarks Co.'s machine, which yielded 28oz
7dwt. This is considered a good return, as the claim, or
rather lease of 4 acres, is held by working miners, who seem
thoroughly to understand their work. The reef runs north and
south, with a slight easterly dip about 1 foot thick. The
party is down 35 feet. I saw some specimens from that
depth which are the best I have seen for some time.
South of this claim, on the same reef, the party
seems to be getting payable stone out of Way and Co.'s lease
at a depth of 82 feet, where the reef is 3 feet thick. The
Ironbarks Co.'s machine crushed about 10 tons from Stringy-
bark (McClymont and Co.) The yield was 11oz. The reef
here is 3 feet Ulick. No. 3 Golden Dully also put through
17 tons, which yielded 15dwts per ton. This claim, formerly
held by Jones and Co., was afterwards formed into a company
of 3000 shares at £1 each, and four men have been at
work for several months, at £2 10s per week, with a manager
to look alter them at £5 per week, and a legal manager in
Sydney at 25s a week. The local shareholders are much dissatisfied
at the way the claim is managed and the slow progress
made, for they assert that very little over a ton of stone
per week is raised, whilst if they had it in their own hands
they could realise a good dividend. The Redfern G. M. Co.
had a crushing at Lea and Dargue's machine. The yield, I
am informed, is something under 1oz to the ton. There is a
great deal of iron pyrites in this claim. The manager has
saved about 3 tons of it after passing through the
machine, and from experiments made he considers
there is a sufficiency of gold in it. We have
no appliances at hand to treat pyriteous stone.
Tenders are called for carting 50 tons of quartz from Carter
and Co., Banada, to Lea and Dargue's machine. Messrs.
Lea and Dargue seem disposed to thoroughly test the Great
Britain reef, having let a contract to sink one of the shafts to
a depth of 150 feet, and have also several men employed in
different parts of the reef. The Ironbarks Crushing Co. had
about 7 tons of cement taken from the old ground on the
White Hill for a trial. The yield, I believe, was about 3dwt
per ton. It was not feasible to suppose there was any payable
cement left in the old ground, as the diggers saved all
that was worth anything. I omitted to mention in my last
that a brilliant diamond was found by the manager, Mr.
Fleming, in the old cement tailings. I have long been of
opinion that precious stones are to be found in these drifts,
and that the diamonds found in the Macquarie have come
from similar formations. A party of experienced miners
have commenced to put a tunnel in a large bald hill near
Stoney Creek. Several tunnels have been put into the same
hill without result. Mr Chambers has brought about 2 tons
from his claim at Caleula to he tested at Scott's machine.
Some of it looks well. Mr. Simpson, the new manager for
the Mookerawa G. M. Co., is making rapid progress in the
week, with nearly 2000oz gold. The principal sources
