He was a manager in WA in 1899 and was in WA until 1911 not sure in what role, and then back again in Aug 1918 as a mining partner. I have numerous records of him being in the Coolgardie area including one crushing of 23 tons of quartz for over 403 oz from the Niagara GM company's mine. Ken.

You could try trove, that is where I have got most of the info that I have from.
https://trove.nla.gov.au/
a wealth of info for sure, try old newspapers and just search with as many search terms that you are sure of but no more than 3 -4 and try swapping a word for another term you are looking for. Ken.

Thanks ken been and done trove and public records and mine department records I was hopping your grandfather may have a journal or something I do a have a copy of the work plan of the golden ridge work plan from 1930 it's very hard to get information on dargo field as most of the high plains mining companies where London based and did have to report on there movements the state library has a vast amount of information but the have no funding so it's sitting in storage

No journal that I know of. I will have to get over to my cousins house as he may have more info but it will have to wait until my wife is feeling better than she is at the moment. Ken.
