Dwyer’s Creek Mines (By our Special). M.L.10 : … A 20 h.p. boiler is now being installed and a good continuous run is expected. Want of sufficient power to run the head battery, pumps and concentrating tables has hindered progress. The furnace, which is a double or return, to treat the arsenic contents is nearing completion. The concrete flues and 40 feet fumes stacks are now ready for the revolving roaster. The concrete flues are about 100 feet long, thus giving the fumes a travel of 200 feet from roaster to stack.
