Although Far North Queensland was first settled in the 1850s, the discovery of gold in the late 1860s produced an influx of tens of thousands of hopeful diggers, including many thousands of Chinese. The mining boom continued through the last decades of the 19th Century, but was all but over by the First World War. The area is littered with hundreds of mining ghost towns, camps, Cobb & Co exchange stations, and of course gold, copper and silver mines. Join with us as we unearth relics from the 19th Century gold and minerals rush. Colleen and Warren.
The North Queensland 'Mineral Belt' extends for over 1,000 kilometres from the East Coast of Cape York, across the Gulf Savannah to Mt Isa near the Northern Territory border. The area is rich in gold, silver, copper, lead, wolfram and uranium. Gemstones of all kinds abound and the areas is a gemhunter's paradise.
