The Bendigo Goldfield: Resources of the 'Central Area' - V. Pabst


Cat No.:   AU7017:

To quote from the Preface: The "Resources of the 'Central Area'" has been written in the hope of assisting mining investors to a fuller understanding of the potentialities of the vast auriferous area known as the Bendigo Goldfield, of which the "Central Area" forms but a small part. The information presented was accumulated during my appointment as mining representative of the Bendigo "Independent." In this period of 9 1/2 years, over 1500 inspections were made of the underground workings at all points of the field."

After an introduction to the "Resources of the Central Area" this volume deals with 43 mines - as follows:
