MINING INTELLIGENCE. j CENTRAL MINERA.—Wm. Davies, Dec. 24: At the weetern shaft the cross-cut driving east is much harder for progress, a strong bed of limestone having come in this end, with small spots of ore through it, but not to value. The western end is without alteration since last report. MINERA UNION.—W. T. Harris, December 22: The 80 yard level is much easier for driving; the lode is 3 ft. wide, and from its promising character I expect a great improvement, at present it produces saving work.- Wil. liam's Shaft: The lode in the 40 yard level south is worth 15 cwts lead per fathom. No 1 pitch in the bottom of this level, is worth 2 tons of lead per fathom. No 2 pitch is worth 15 cwts of lead per fathom. NuRTH MINERA.—James Dunkin, Dec. 24: The ground at the eastern shaft still continues very favour- able for sinking, and gett ng into more of the limestone and spar; more congenial ground for lead ore than we have seen in the upper part of the mine. In the 25 east we are driving on the side of the lode, which, when last taken down, was producing good stones of lead ore. In the 25 west the lode is large, and producing good stones of lead ore, and from the character of the ground being similar to that in the bottom of the 45 yard level, previous to our discovery at this part of the mine, I expect an im- provement at this point. We are putting forth the 15, to get under the course of lead in the bottom of 45 yard level, having about 21 tons per fm. of unproductive ground to pass through to reach this point, which will put us in a much better position for taking away the ore. The stopes in the bottom of the 45 yard level are of the same value as last reported, but will be suspended, to bring in the 15 fathom level as stated. The stopes in back of the 15, west of eastern shaft, will produce 12 cwts of lead ore per fathom. CEFN CWM BRWYNO.—Dec. 22: The lode at the 80 west of Taylor's engine shaft, is 3 feet wide, producing from 15 cwts. to 1 ton of lead ore per fathom. The lode in the 56, or deep adit level going east, is 5 feet wide, yielding good saving work; the same level going east, on the south lode, is in a lode wide, producing good stones of ore at times. The tribute pitches are yielding on an average 9 cwts of lead ore per fathom. The dressing, &c, with all other surface work going on regularly. BRYNTAiii.—J. Roach, Dec. 22: The lode in the 20 west, that part being carried in driving, is produeing good stones and a mixture of lead ore, and apparently the best part of the lode is still standing north the lode is very promising indeed the piece of the lode being cut is improving, and from all appearances one would sup- pose that it will, as extended west, open out a very good lode of ore I believe it will. At all events, our prospects of having good and lasting bunches of ore were never so great as they are at the present moment, and I have great faith in the ore being found in greater abundance at a deeper level. Have you made up your mind to sink the shaft to a 30 fathom level, or would you prefer open- ing out a little more of the lode in the 20 previous to do- ing so ? My advice is to do the latter, and sink a winze under the 20 in the best of the ore, to prove its quality a little deeper.
