Developed by Crisp, Baldock and party around 1908. 9 acres. Sited 50 yards east of the Occidental mine on a parallel reef. The main shaft reached a depth of 200 feet, on a reef averaging 2 feet wide. The upper levels contained 18 oz to the tonne. The ground was softer than the Eclipse and South Gippsland leases.
In 1911, they had convinced a Boulder syndicate to take over the lease for 6000 pounds, however nothing was found of activity beyond this date. The mine had produced 2710 tonnes of ore for 2274 ounces of gold.
Incorrect Mindat co-ordinates reverted to the Gindalbie battery site until the mine's location is confirmed.
