In June 1896 Bogle and Clark had won the contract to upgrade and supply the newly formed New Mount Zeehan S.M. Company, pumping and winding machinery. The engine, boiler and associated equipment, which were shipped to Strahan by the SS Meeinderry, enabling the mine manager to sink the mine shaft to a depth of 500ft., the previous depth only being 120 ft. The engine, which was 40 i.h.p., and the boiler a steel Galloway, tubed Cornish type, 25 ft.6 in. long, and 6 ft. 6 in. In diameter, was sufficient enough to supply power to the concentrators as well. It is interesting to note that the boiler, weighing nine ton and being 25 ft. long, was carried on the fore-deck of the SS Meeinderry, and projected a couple of feet each side of the vessel during transit. The mine upgrade was due to the vigorous prospecting, under the management of J. C. Collier, which in turn gave good returns. The enterprise of Bogle and Clark was commended, on the quality of the equipment supplied and it was of the highest standard.
