Historical image of Golden Point, Ballarat, in 1851. By Thomas Ham, Engraver. Shows gold fields dotted with tents, miners and trees, with mountains in the distance.
Ballarat’s initial gold rush in 1851 focused on the rich surface alluvial gold deposits, where miners searched for gold in the gullies and surrounding shallow areas.
But it wasn’t long before skilled miners looked a little deeper, discovering the unfathomable wealth which lay waiting in the now famous deep leads below!
1852 onwards saw Ballarat leap into action! Miners excitedly discovered lead after lead, working in unimaginable conditions in hope of seizing the riches which lay deep beneath their feet.
