Hi all
Search didn’t come up with much
So sorry if it has been brought up before
I’m after a book of gippsland gold mines and maps if there is one.
Having been on geovic and going to marks and finding spots is good but 99 percent of the time it’s a different type of mine or part of a processing plant etc
So I bought if there was a book that’s actually worth spending some money on or looking in the local library.
Cheers cam

Hi,
I’ve been trying to post a picture of some books I’ve got at home on the Gippsland area. I can’t get the photo up because the file is too big so I’m trying to compress it to upload for you to make your search easier. But until then, here are the titles of the books.
They contain history of the areas and information about the pioneers and gold rush info there are some maps included in there but they are old and I was told some names on current maps have changed.
Also some of these books like Jericho is very difficult to get your hands on.

Jericho on the Jordan - a Gippsland goldfield history by J.G Rogers

Donnelly’s creek -from rush to ruin of a Gippsland mountain goldfield by Luke Steenhuis

Rediscovering Victoria’s goldfields by John Bechervaise

Gold for the finding - a pictorial history of Gippsland’s Jordon goldfields
By Owen F. Tomlin
Marysusan Bosa
Peter G Chamberlain

Hope one or more of these might be of use to you. I haven’t had a chance to sit and study them yet but we aren’t far from Jericho and Donnelly’s area. So it should be fun when I do get there wink

Good books, great area, no prospecting there though.

Seeing as this is your 1st post try going to the Introduction section and let us know a bit about you instead of going straight promo.
