Gold in creeks in Victoria. Joined: 24 February 05 November pm. Okay, come December 1 I am starting a research project and want some feedback. I plan to visit several smaller creeks in North and North East Victoria looking for gold. My questions to you are as follows.

    Mining of gold-bearing quartz on any large scale required similar equipment to deep lead mining, plus large treatment plants (batteries) to crush the ore and separate the gold. The New Australasian No. 2 Deep Lead Gold Mining Site is historically and scientifically important as a characteristic example of an important form of gold mining. Gold mining sites are of crucial importance for the pivotal role they have played since in the development of Victoria.

    Alluvial gold, in comparison, can be found in unconsolidated rocks and sediments at, or close to, the surface, and can be more readily mined and recovered. Allu vial dep osits are u sually foun d close to l ode deposit s and are formed by p rolonged erosion of such dep osits, rel easing the gold into the soil and being transported and deposited.

The most famous placers are the deep leads-channel deposits of a middle Cenozoic drainage system that were buried by voluminous basalt flows over the past few million years. The basalt has also shielded large areas of the highly prospective bedrock from exploration for more of the hard.

The Palaeozoic succession of Victoria represents a major world gold province with a total production of t of gold (i.e. 78 million oz). On a global scale, central Victoria represents one of the most gold mineralized areas outside the Witwatersrand of South Africa, and remains the prime example of a ‘slate belt’ gold province (also known as ‘turbidite-hosted’, or ‘shale Cited by: Underground Deep Lead Mining - Concept - Electronic Encyclopedia of Gold in Australia - e-Gold is a biographical, bibliographical and archival database that tells the story of gold through images, stories and multimedia interactives, connecting individual stories to wider historical themes.

Deep Lead is a town in Victoria that has a rich history, thanks to the fundamental role it played in the gold rush era. The former gold mining town borders Illawarra, and both of them form a rural region that is located a few minutes drive from Stawell.

It is almost as if the old timers found that small alluvial patch and that was that. Almost straight onto deep lead mining - very interesting place to study.

Because of the amount of overburden to be dug through, and the often-small quantities of gold contained in the deep lead (or wash) it took great skill to remove every particle of gold by sight alone. Without a regular water supply however, miners sometimes had no option but to simply 'look' for the gold.

The Ballarat gold field is located beneath the town of Ballarat, approximately km west of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia. The Ballarat district has been an important historic gold producer. Gold was first discovered in with the initial mining of the Deep Lead buried palaeo-channel alluvial deposits, followed from by exploitation of the basement quartz reefs.
