It was resolved that the report of the directors to the shareholders with the returns and statements annexed be received approved and entered on the minutes of this meeting and that the same be printed for the use of the shareholders. The Hale yearly report of the directors of the South australian mining association to the shareholders at the half yearly meeting held the 17th Day of october 1849. During the last six months the Copper Ore Market in Britain has been subject to great fluctuation and recently when a considerable Quantity of the association s ores were for Sale the Price realised was about �3 per ton less than the average rate. The Swansea Sale of the 21st june last which is the latest known in the province shows a slight improvement and from advices subsequent it is expected that prices will speedily Advance. The sales effected in Adelaide have been More advantageous and the directors Hope that the time is not far Distant when the whole of the ores May be disposed of Here. Since the accounts were closed the directors have sold 700 tons of Ore for delivery at port Adelaide at Good prices. Accompanying this will be found the usual return of Ore raised during the past six months and which nearly equals in Quantity while it exceeds in Quality the production of any previous half year. The fixing of the pumping engine is expected to be completed and at work on the twentieth instant and with its assistance still better results May be expected the operations of the last six months having been much restricted for want of the engine. Hew. Discoveries of Ore Coati use to be made in the mine and scarcely a month passes without some additional evidence of its value. Captain Roach reports of the principal Workings thus u the thirty fathom level going North from Graham s have driven this level ten fathoms on the course of the lode the size of which we have not yet ascertained. We have no Wall on either Side. This end produces Blue and Green Carbonate of Good Quality the better part of which is gone Down. The thirty fathom level going South from Graham s we have driven through a course of oxide and malachite Twenty fathoms in length varying in Width from one to eight fathoms and producing Ore from forty to forty eight per cent. The thirty fathom level going South from Ayer s Shaft Here we have also driven Twenty fathoms through another course of Ore much the same in size and Quality As the one above mentioned. We have seven pitches in full operation in this level from which 1 have no doubt we shall extract five Hundred tons of Ore during the present take six weeks the Ivo Enty fathom have several Good pitches in the backs and. Bottoms Here particularly Gartrell s pitch at Kingston s where they have recently Cut a new Bunch of malachite. The remainder of the pitches about the six and twelve fathom Levels Are looking As Well As can be expected considering the time they have been worked. The pitches at the ten fathom level at Bunce s Are look Itig on the 29th september last the establishment at the mines consisted of sixteen officers two surgeons and the following miners mechanics and labourers Viz.281 miners 13 mine labourers 3 Timber men 8 engineers and fitters 13 carpenters 6 Sawyers 6 Smiths 6 strikers 9 masons 22 labourers 8 stable men 2 watermen 49 labourers 11 Carters 12 youths Carters a. 15 Landers 15 whim boys 21 boys on floors a. 195 men Ore dressing 12 boys ditto 1 weigher 1 watchman total 727. This number will be considerably increased so soon As the engine is fairly at work. A return is annexed showing the total Quantity of Ore raised since the opening of the mine and the Matzner it Ibali lieu die posed of. There is also a return of the Quantity of Copper received to the 29th Ultimo from the Patent Copper company on account " Ore delivered them. The directors have hitherto been enabled to sell the whole of the Copper Here at such prices As leave the coh up a Good profit and Hope it will prove remunerative to the purchasers. The directors prefer this course to shipping but As it is not certain that a Market will always exist Here for the whole of the Copper a trial shipment ius been made to England and if necessary similar shipments will be made to other places As opportunities offer. The return of Copper shows the Sale of about 61 tons Only but a further Quantity has since been received and a Sale of 75 tons effected. In addition to this there till be deliverable during the present year about 200 tons of Copper in respect to ores already delivered to the Patent Copper. Company. On the 5th Ultimo the directors resumed the payment of dividends and they Hope nothing will occur to prevent their continuing them regularly. The attention of shareholders is called to the annexed statements of account. Part i. Shows the expenses and profits of the association from the 31st March 1847, the Date of the previous balancing to the 31st december 1847, and it will be seen that after writing off All the dividends declared and paid to the present Perio a there remains to the credit of profit and loss account the sum of �726 6s id so that in fact the whole of the dividends amounting to the Large sum of �135,520have been paid from actual profits realised from the working of the Burra Burra mines from the 29th september 1845, to the 31st december 1847, a period of Only Twenty seven months the Quantity of Ore produced in this time being 18,567 tons and Cost in production �133,879 14s 5d, or �7 4s 2d per ton. It brought Clear of freight and charges �296,481 14s id or �14 10 3d per ton and it left a Clear profit of �135,601 19s 8d, or �7 6s id per ton. Part ii. Exhibits the current balances from the 31st december 1847, to the 29th september 1849. Part Iii. Is a statement of the liabilities and assets of the company and in the preparation of which due regard has been had to All reasonable contingencies As however Many of the items can Only be supplied by estimation the balance of profit there shown May be increased or diminished As changes of markets or other unforeseen circumstances May happen but it is nevertheless the belief of the directors that it will in All probability be realised. It has been the pleasing duty of the directors from time to time to congratulate the shareholders on the satisfactory state of their affairs but at no time have they been Able to do so More confidently than on the present occasion. It will be part of the business of the meeting to elect a director in the place of John Brown esq., disqualified but who is now eligible for re election. Charles Beck chairman.
