The Black Hill Gold Mining Company was one of the many nineteenth century gold mining companies in Ballarat. Black Hill was the first Quartz area in Ballarat to be mined. [1]

The first crushing battery put up at Ballarat was erected at the foot of Black Hill. [2]

Late in the year 1855 Hough and party sunk a large shaft or hole in the cap of a reef to a depth of 10 feet, and the quartz taken thereout yielded over 500 oxs. of gold. Several very rich specimens were found, containing from 20 ozs to 30 ozs. of gold, embedded in quartz. At the commencement, crushing it with hammers, washed off i tubs and in dishes, but after a time they erected a crushing machine, consisting of a flat sheet of perforated iron. The stone worked by a horse much as a whim is worked. The quartz was lain on the sheet of iron, and as the stone passing over it reduced it the pulverised quartz passed through the holes in the iron into a receiver, and was then washed off, but no regular quartz mining appears to have been done in this locality until 1858.

In 1855 several parties of miners were working this reef, but owing to the high rate of wages, cartage, &c., they simply broke the stone and hammered it about, and passed it over sieves for the purpose of separating debris from the solid stone, and the debris was then carted to White Flat and washed off in tubs at the Yarrowee Creek, the solid stone being thrown aside. [4]

In 1858 several small co-operative parties amalgamated, for the purpose of erecting a 16 head battery for joint use. Crushing was commenced in February 1859, but so defective was the battery that by the end of the month all the boxes were battered to pieces and had to be replaced. [5]

Anticline, west of the Cornish Mine, 1923. Federation University Historical Collection

Also known as Argus Hill.

The Cornish anticline, at the northern end of the sheet, is about 100 feet east of the Hepburn Mineral Spring, in Spring Creek. Traced southwards it has an undulating pitch to the centre of the township, beyond which its inclination is southerly, through Cornish Hill to Jubilee Lake (an artificial reservoir formed in Wombat Creek). Still further south its position is obscured by overlying superficial deposits. Its approximate position at the south boundary is some 500 feet or so east of the New Specimen Hill mine. Its best paying mines were the Cornish Group, on Cornish Hill, between a quarter and a half mile south-east of the Post Office, where the fold commences its long southerly pitch.[6]
Mr Parsons is given the credit of discovering the Cornish lodes, the find being made when stripping for sluicing auriferous rain wash from the hillside in 1854. [7]

A co-operative company known as Wagg and Party found auriferous quartz in the neighbourhood of the head of the Canadian Gully as early as August 1859. In September 1860 the Old Canadian Company found gold-bearing quartz on the crown of the hill at the head of Canadian Gully and worked the stone to a depth of 40 feet by means of open cutting.[8]
