“The near side of the Deep Creek, at Carisbrook, is lined with cradles, where the stuff procured at Simson’s diggings is washed. The distance from the diggings is some four miles, and the price paid for cartage is £2 per load. It is evident that it must be very rich stuff which will pay for washing under such circumstances…” – The Argus (Melbourne), 2nd October 1854
