Little Blue Lake, South Mt Cameron, Tasmania
Little Blue Lake is one of several in the area that is the result of alluvial tin mining. When the miners packed their bags and left town, the pit was filled with water to become a recreational spot. Visitors are warned about swimming in the lake because the water is highly contaminated with toxic heavy metals from past tin mining activity. The shores are used regularly for camping and parties. Signs warning against swimming are frequently removed by vandals. The cliffs that line some sides of the Little Blue Lake are 10 meters high.

Prospecting A Newly Logged Area & Some Old Gold Mines
We have recently staked this area to evaluate the mineral potential. Recent logging has exposed loads of new bedrock. Several locations were found with minerlization including a new quarry used to build access roads. Part of the property has several old mines including an old prospectors pit, 6 meter deep shaft, an incline shaft 33 meters deep and a big quarry were we have recently been removing material for a bulk sample (shown in another video). The video shows some quick exploration of the area to get a view of how much bedrock is exposed from logging. And shows some of the workings. There will be more videos in this are soon to come as we only show 1/5th of the entire property in the video. Assays and preliminary testing were done on some showings and the results are listed throughout the video. Want to support us?

Tin Mine Canyon
The Tin Mine Canyon trail in Corona is not at all what I expected it to be. When I think of Corona I think hot and dry. This trail was far from hot and dry. On the day that we hiked, it seemed like a rain forest. The mist hung around all day and water dripped down on us from the canopy. The trail itself has very minimal elevation gain and is great for all ages. We chose to explore beyond the "trail end" posting and found ourselves in a very lush and moist jungle like environment. I would definitely be curious to see what this trails is like once we get into the hotter weeks of the Summer.

Briseis Trail Derby
A quick look at the spectacular new bike and walking tracks around the Briseis Mine Hole in Derby north east Tasmania. Once the site of the huge open cut Briseis Tin Mine, now filled with water. The track circumnavigates the lake and climbs up to some spectacular views of the Mine Hole and the mine face. No doubt that now the area is accessible to the general public this will become a must see item for locals and visitors. As we walked around the lake we could easily imagine all the fun things that will be possible, kayaking, rowing, sailing, paddle boards and even bike riding. The Dorset Council intends erecting information signage around the tracks to inform visitors of this impressive, historical site. Well done everyone involved.

Boomtown - Documentary film promo
Boomtown is a documentary film set in the little mining town of Zeehan on the remote west coast of Tasmania. A group of local characters have they set out to play with no experience but plenty of enthusiasm they set out on a road of self discovery and artistic expression west coast style. The local tin mine, the lifeblood of the town, had closed down and as a result the local economy collapsed as many people left. A small band of concerned locals are convinced that a play will reunite this divided community and rekindle their spirits and sense of purpose and a belief that it once had. This not just any old play but a play about the west coast its mining history and its colourful characters. A play specially written, a musical melodrama set at the turn of the century when Zeehan was a Boomtown. The play brings together an unlikely collection of characters, including Kevin Atkinson - an unemployed timber worker- turned theatre producer and collection of miners, colourful local identities and the local cop. Then there is the flamboyant Bob Daley, the director from Adelaide: and his assistant Kalyna Flowerpot, community artist and greenie both working long hours on a play in a town where conservationists are commonly seen as the enemy. This unlikely alliance is soon united in the s common cause of staging the biggest production to be staged in the old Gaiety Theatre since Houdini played there last century.

Metal Detecting a West Coast Railway Junction Ghost Town  Tasmania
The west coast of Tasmania has many old mining towns, hydro power towns, railway towns and railway junction towns. This town i visited today was created in the 1890s to support a small branch railway line that supported a mining town only shortt distance off the main line. The branch line was closed in the 1920s and the main line remained and is in use still to this day. So from 1920s to now the site is used by railway gangs and trout fisherman as a base camp. I found 4 coins in the hour i was there today.
