LITCHFIELD NATIONAL PARK #15

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Bamboo Creek Tin Mine is a few kilometres on a dirt track from Wangi Falls.

“Bamboo Creek tin mine is an example of small scale, labour intensive mine operated without the benefit of heavy earth machinery. It was typical of many of the mines in the Northern Territory which operated in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, especially those operated by the Chinese.

The remains include the mine workings; the tin processing mill; and the associated domestic and industrial remains. Tin was discovered at Bamboo Creek in 1906 and was mined irregularly until 1955. The wide variety of remains are notable in that they reflect the complete range of activities associated with underground mining. Artefacts relating to ore extraction, processing and transport are present as well as domestic remains and remnants of the explosives magazine.” (Wikipedia)

A rather emotive and thought provoking set of images, captured so very well, which continue to provide much knowledge of this beautiful land.
