Rich Seam Of Tin Found Near Tingha

TINGHA, Tuesday. Two miners at Tingha, in northern N.S.W., have discovered a rich tin seam 12 inches wide. It is three miles from Tingha township.

The miners are Ned Johnson and Keith Barnes. Both are returned soldiers.

They have taken £1,000 worth of tin from the seam in the last three days.

They are hopeful that they will be able to take several thousands of pounds’ worth of tin from their mine before the seam peters out.

In the last few weeks rich discoveries of tin at Tingha have caused a mild rush to the area.

People from many parts of the State have arrived, anxious to start mining.

[Tingha is 422 miles from Sydney and 75 miles by rail from Uralla.]
