The Halifax Copper Mining Company has lately been established to work a quartz vein, which is described as being from eight inches to three feet wide, and as containing promising quantities of vitreous ore, with copper pyrites, and portions of green carbonate and red oxyd of copper ; the latter two occurring at the surface of the vein. This synclinal, with its copper-bearing strata, is traced from Halifax, through contiguous parts of Ireland and of
Inverness, into Leeds. On the fourth lot of the eleventh range of Ireland,
variegated ore is found ; and on the ninth lot of the ninth range, copper
pyrites occurs in dolomite. It is also met with in similar conditions on the
second lot of the fourth range of Inverness. On the fourth lot of the
second range, variegated copper ore occurs in a quartz vein two feet wide
in nacreous slates.
