Historical Mining Activity

Mine Shaft Locations were collected by a variety of methods from 1869 in some areas of the state. Mainly concentrating in Ballarat and Bendigo. In places a shaft may be recorded multiple times with a different source. In cases where several shaft locations are shown close together (generally with separations less than stated position errors) and they have different sources, it is possible that one shaft has been mapped several times. In cases where several shaft locations are shown close together but they have the same information source, it is possible that each shaft location represents a different shaft on the ground. Bendigo Mines Hazard Data - a Review and History More recently, information has been compiled from data from David Bannear DELWP Parks Vic Peter Ward Fred Sargent Peter Quinn Source for these is marked as Private survey - and source comment contains details.
