Background

The Centenary mine at Mollongghip was initially worked between 1906 and 1911, during that time the nine small crushings recorded a yield of 15oz. 11 dwt per ton. [1]

The mine was again operating in 1937 cleaned out the old vertical shaft to a depth of 45 feet and extended the drives 10 feet north and 60 feet south on the reef. A survey was then made and a plan in the poss4ession of the company indicated the Centenary Reef should be 45 feet to the east of the drive . A crosscut east from the end of the drive was extended to 58 feet withy a drill hole a further 3 feet without intersecting the reef. The mine is equipped with a five - head battery and an oil engine.
