"In 1904 Inspector of Mines Matthews reports :- Situated close to the old Moppa Gold diggings, Hundred of Belvidere, 3 miles N.E. of Greenock township. The section (No.6) is traversed by a low range of hills, of an auriferous character. For a considerable width there are numerous veins and quartz leaders. The principal formation showing on the surface extends over 10ft. in width; it consists chiefly of slate, ironstone, and quartz, striking N. and S., and underlying 45o E. On this several small openings have been made, and two or three small prospecting shafts, from which it is stated fair returns had been obtained, but, not having been worked for a considerable time, most of the workings had fallen in, and could not be examined...."
