The superintendent of the Ross Goldfields, reporting on the work done at the mine for tho week ended November 12, say* that at No. 7 level the west drive was out 162 ft from No. 7 plat. At the intermediate No. 2 wing drive was extended 29ft to the south-east in low-grade wash, and the face was 154 ft from No. 2 shoot. At 140 ft No. 4 north-east drive was started, and advanced 9ft in fair-grade wash. The pay wash in tho face of tho north-west blocking strip of No. 1 south-west drive was found to be dipping below the drive, and further extension was delayed until the bottom of the strip was lowered sufficiently to keep control of the wash. Blocking was proceeding off Nos. 1, 2, end 3 southwest drives.
