Gold Mining in Australia

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Gold mining was single most important activity which drove the growth of modern Australia.  It began with the great strikes on the eastern side of the continent, in New South Wales and Victoria in the mid 1800's.  The first big strikes in Western Australia occurred later in the century, and gold is still being mined there, albeit in smaller quantities.  Contributor CarrandDrone worked with the operator of the Edna May Gold Mine in WA over six months to produce this fascinating video of the modern gold mining process.
