Mountain View Gold: Day Dawn Western A/Palmer, Alex/Paper/0859055140/S016-F
A new day dawned for Day Dawn WA, following a rich strike at Mountain View.
A group of Italian prospectors at Day Dawn in the 1940s, down to their uppers, defying the advice of experts, persevered for four years before they finally struck it rich.
1945-47 they worked in conditions that would not be tolerated today and brought to the surface 4,845 ton of 5.25oz/ ton ore, valued at £273,300. (Today's value $ 42,000,000).
Their bonanza supported the old saying; "Gold is where you find it". Their workings were only a matter of metres from where the Great Fingall Mine, a quarter of a century earlier, had abandoned its search.
