Before the gold rush of 1877, the Beaconsfield district was the centre of Australia’s iron industry. It was here that the largest iron smelter in the Southern Hemisphere was built on the west bank of the beautiful Tamar River – forty years before BHP Newcastle. This book documents the events and introduces the people who explored the region from the first settlement in 1804. We uncover the lives of the forgotten pioneers who made many of Australia’s first mineral discoveries and created the industries. We allow them to proudly rise again to their rightful place at the forefront of Australia’s mining history.
Printing of this manuscript was made possible by the generosity of BCD Resources NL, and Proto Resources & Investments Ltd. Proto today holds the exploration lease over the Ironstone Hills of Beaconsfield—where the first discovery of iron ore in Australia was made in 1805, and the first metal mine in Australia opened the same year
