Deposits of Stone

Deposits of Stone.

Your Engineer has discovered some deposits of stone in two or three creek beds under the terrace on the Nine-Mile road. This will, I believe, give sufficient stone to protect the river bank which is being damaged by the river, and I do not think It is advisable at present to go to the great cost of making a road from the Buller bridge to bring stone from the main quarries for this purpose, which can be done at any future time if found to be urgently necessary. The length of road required to get the stone found in the above creek beds is only 60 chains, and will not cost much; but the road from the Buller bridge to the Orawaiti Overflow would be about three miles, and would cost much more than at present seems justifiable.
