    • Mr. W. Spiller, of Kyoomba, has struck a very good prospect (says the Border Post), about a hundred yards to the left of Sugarloaf road after crossing Quart Pot Creek at Kyoomba. The sinking is about 7ft., but is very hard, and Mr. Spiller is driving instead of opening a face. The wash varies in depth from about 15in. to 3in, and is very rich all through. As yet it is difficult to see the run of the wash, as it appears to be making all round ; but as there is plenty of sound ground on every side, Mr. Spiller should get out a good lot of tin.
