THE CASSEL PROCESS AT KUAOTUNU.

BULLION RETURN FROM TRY FLUKE TAILINGS.

The first-fruits of the bullion obtained by the Cassel cyanide process of gold-saving from the tailings of the Try Fluke Company's mine came to hand on Saturday, and proved more satisfactory than the most sanguine shareholders anticipated, proving conclusively the extracting power of the cyanide process, and the necessity which existed for some other than the mechanical ptocesses hitherto in use. The quantity of tailings treated since the erection of the plant was 734 tons, and the amount of bullion received on Saturday by the manager, Mr. H. Gilfillan, was 2220z, which on being assayed at the Bank of New Zealand proved to be worth £2 8s Id per oz, making the total value £533 14s 6d. There are 540z more melted gold on hand at the battery, and about a similar quantity is expected from the final cleaning up, the result of which is nob yet to hand. The total result, including the bars of bullion themselves, will be placed before the annual meeting of the shareholders of tho Try Fluke Company to-morrow, and that they will afford satisfaction to the shareholders generally and justify the spirited action of the directors in being the first to adopt the cyanide process at'Kuaotunu goes without saying.
