Another metal.

--Parties working "St. David's Cove" gold mine in Wales, have made a discovery. Of the rock raised and broken, many stones were found very rich in gold and sulphides of copper, and there was another mineral which is termed white metal, that has been examined by several mineralogists, none of whom knew what it was, an ignorance which was shared in by the members of the Manchester Geological Society, after much examination. Cubes of this white metal were found in cubes of gold and vice versa, and wherever it was found it was a sure indication that gold was there also.
