Purchase of this book includes free trial access to www. million-books.com where you can read more than a million books for free. This is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: CHAPTER III. Mode of working for gold-The cradle-Methods of The alluvial deposits are worked by washing the soil collected either from the surface, from a deep pit, or tunnel, in the bank of a river, or water-hole, which has previously been drained by dams, or other artificial means. Crushing and stamping the rocks, and driving shafts, galleries, and levels on lodes of the ore, as in ordinary mining operations, have not yet been resorted to in Australia. The most simple, but the least lucrative method of washing consists in digging up theauriferous soil and washing it in a pan, or milk- dish. Pan-washing, as it is called, is only practised by those who, from poverty or eccentricity, work single-handed. An expert hand can gather and wash a pailful every ten minutes; and the place that does not yield about 10s. per day, is considered not worth working by that process. But pan-washing is but little practised, as the diggers find it more lucrative to work in parties of from four to eight persons each, and to wash the soil in a cradle, a simple apparatus presently to be described. A collection of the following tools are indispensable to a cradling-party. Spades, crow-bars, pickaxes, with one end pointed and the other end square, shovels, iron wedges, falling-axe, tube, tin or iron buckets, tin dippers, tin or iron pans like milk dishes, cradle, gardeners' trowels, maul, and a cross-cut saw. It is also necessary to be provided with a change of coarse wearing apparel, a good stock of bedclothes, a roomy tent, and the following cooking utensils: viz, a camp oven, an iron pot, anda kettle, several tin quart mugs, plates, and a few knives, forks, andc. All the above can be bought in the neighbourhood of the diggings, at a trifling advance on the London prices: Books History~~General Australia-as-it-is~~Francis-Lancelott Nabu Press This is a reproduction of a book published before 1923.
