Leslio A. Norman, Naseby and Ken thorn. The Eureka Quartz Miuing Company of Nenthorn, Limited, is being formed with the object of working two licensed holdings of 30 acres each, situate at Nenthorn, Central Otago, which goldfield has been aptly described by mining experts of considerable experience as * l lbe Thames of the South lßlar.il of New Ze&.~ land." In addition to the licensed holdings referred to, both of which have been transferred in the corporate name of the Company, there is a grant of a Wator Race and Right for flvo hrads of Water, as well as for a Keservoir covering five acres of ground. It is the intention of the Board of Directors, on commencing operations, to do the following things—viz. (I) To erect a 10-stamp batten and 15-horso power engine and boiler in the immediate vicinity of the reefs, as well as suitable appliances for treating the auriferous ore; and (2) to provide for tho energetic development of the claim* on a thoroughly systematic scale by sinking a main shaft in a central position, with the necessary hoisting and pumping gear. Making their calculations on a liberal basi°, the directors estimate that an expenditure of not more than L 2.500 will be involved in the erection of machinery and the execution of all necessary works for placing the mine in a position to pay dividends. The claims held by the Company have been extensively prospected, and so far two goldbearing lodi b have been discovered, both of which can be traced for fully one mile and ahalf, traversing the following claims:—Premier, Eureka, Glencairne, Crystal Cave, and Gladstone. Within the last few days an additional 60 acres have been applied for by a company bearing the appellation of "The Eureka Extended Company," the proprietors of whioh nave discovered the continuation of the reef*, which at that point are over 2ft in width, and carrying good payable gold. In view of the information availab'e to the pnblio in regard to the valuable discoveries already made at Nenthorn, the Directors consider it unnecessary to make any statements in rfference to the general character of the field, except to remark that it has been practically proved, beyond the question of a doubt, that the lodes aro true in character, figuring the foliated schist almost at right angles with the strata, tho rock being splendidly adapted to mining operations, and the pay-ore fairly easy of production. The particular lodes in the Company's claims have, as already stated, been extensively prospected, payable gold having been found wherever excavations have been made. Their general ■width is quite 2Aft, and in one place a shaft has been sunk to a depth of 20ft, from which point a trial crushing of a ton of stone was taken and reduced at the battery of Kincaid and M'Queen, Dunedin, the yield being at the rate of TEN OUNCES OF RETORTED GOLD PER TIN OF ORE! The cake of gold obtained from the crushing is now on exhibition at the establishment of Messrs G. and T. Young, jewellers, Princes street, Dunedin. The Directors would draw attention to the fact that so far the richest discovery made on the goldfi 14 is comprehended in the properties now offered to the public ; and, taking all tho circumstances of the caGO into consideration, they have no hesitation in recommending thorn as a perfectly legitimate outlet for the investment of capital. The oily contract entered into is one between the Company of the one part and Walter nislop of tbe other part, in regard to the floating of tho Company, the original of whfch may be inspected at the offices of the solicitors of the Oompany. The Memorandum and Artioles of Association may also be inspected at the same place.
