The ‘Menzies Miner’ is was a sixteen page weekly newspaper and circulated in every town in the North Coolgardie, Mount Margaret and the East Murchison Goldfields. In those centres which did not have the advantage of a daily mail service the ‘Menzies Miner’ was widely read. The office of the North Coolgardie Herald and the Menzies Miner is in Reid Street, Menzies (runs parallel to Shenton Street).

The ‘Herald’ is represented in every town and district by a reliable corespondent and agent and having a full capable telegraphic service it convey to the readers the news of the world, a clear day before any other paper. The ‘Herald’ is the only journal that has endeavoured to bring the Northern Fields prominently before the outside public. The value of the ‘Herald’ as an advertising medium is fully appreciated by business firms, mining companies and Government Departments and its influence on the mining industry and trade of the North Coolgardie and Mount Margaret fields is generally recognised.

The paper was founded by the three O’Connor Brother and Charles Henry Evans.
