THE TIN FIELDS.
AN ENCOURAGING REPORT.
INVERCARGILL, May 28.
Mr A. E. Conlirie, mining expert from Tasmania, reporting on the Pegasus tin field, says there is every indication that a powerful lode runs through part of the fields. He sent over lcwt of stream tin, obtained in two hours from Tucker's claim, and experienced miners say it is a very rich sample. Mr Conliffe says that in all his experience he never saw more promising wash. He undertakes to form a company to work Tucker's claim, and expresses the opinion that it will be a mine when the present owners are no more.
