The Come In Time reef was the last discovered on the Bendigo Goldfield, being 1880. It is about 200 metres south of the Thomson Gorge Road, and there is a marked walk trail, and interpretive panels. The walk passes a 60 metre long tunnel (take a torch), and down a gully to an impressively restored stamp battery. The trail continues across a gully and over a steep ridge to the west to the Alta Mine.
The first crushing only achieved 110 ounces of gold from 330 tonnes of ore. Other attempts at mining were made in 1909 and 1919, and were also short lived.
1 valid mineral.
