gems and gold


I am planning to move to Stanthorpe at some time and I believe as well as gems in the areas around that also gold was found, perhaps you may have some knowledge of this?

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries there were a few gold claims in the area. They were not very productive as alluvial mining was difficult due to a lack of water.

If you search the word "Pikedale", you'll find what you're looking for.

Here's a listing of old newspaper articles on Pikedale. newspapers.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/tag…
