Can I find Gold in Hill End?
The Hill End-Tambaroora Gold Field was one of the richest gold mining areas in NSW, and the first reef mining area in Australia. Gold was discovered in 1851 at Golden Gully, when prospectors worked their way north east from Ophir, where the first alluvial gold mining in Australia had commenced a few months previously.
But is there Gold now?
Yes, the gold in the Hill End occurs in quartz veins, even now it can be found in our beautiful bush land.
