Hi all,

Is there a way to convert old 1865 Gold Bearings to our current GPS format or something I can work with?

Eg: I have "Prince of wales" mine in Ballarat as below

Any tips?

Thank you
Mick

It looks like that table only shows which way the reefs (or maybe adits?) run, not the location.

Yes, after some more reading I think you're right, but thank you

If you look further down that list Mount Pleasant is also at N. I 10 E. and Burra-Burra is also at N. I 10 E. the same as the Prince of Wales, so the way I read it, all three reefs are along the same bearing but no distance is specified.

Try this and see if it is what you are looking for 37° 07.139' S 143° 41.791' E


Rock Crusher, Gold Cube, Garret AT Pro Int, Garret Infinium L&S, GPX 5000, and most importantly a supportive missus.

Download the 1:50 000 maps of the Ballarat area and it gives you a list of the mines and GPS Location Data for you to work with.
