This find was to mark the beginning of the rich Ararat goldfield, which grew from empty wilderness to a population of more than 30,000 in a few short weeks.Being three miles in length, the lead was to become the richest shallow alluvial goldfield in the world.
It was to promote the public awareness of the role played by the Chinese in the discovery of gold and the settlement of Ararat that the Ararat Chinese Heritage Society was formed.Two caravan parks cater for caravaners and campers.The surrounding bush contains many campsites for those who prefer to rough it.In the first three months it yielded three tons of gold and some ten tons of gold over the next ten months.The Chinese, however, broke an un-written law of the goldfields in not flying a red flag to disclose the discovery of a new find.As technological advances are made, the earth will undoubtedly surrender more and more gold.
Many pessimists will say that Australian auriferous areas have given up all the easy gold, but we continue to hear of exceptional nuggets being "discovered" in well worked areas.Soon the roar of hundreds of gold cradles rocking the gold through, filled the Ararat valley as the diggers found the Wet Leads which branch from Mullock Bank and the Old Deep Lead at Bridal Hill and extended to Caledonian Lead north of the town."In one instance," wrote the resident Gold Warden "eleven pounds troy of gold was washed from three loads of stuff from the wet lead." In four hectic weeks the population soared to 20,000.The Crescent City, Foo's Golden Age, The Ancient Briton, Noah's Ark, and a dozen other hotel bowling alleys and saloons took their share of the diggers' gold.We welcome visitors from overseas and wish you luck with your endeavours.This news whets ones appetite, and I intend to head back to the Victorian gold fields next week to try my luck for that illusive yellow metal, in a nice secluded location I "discovered" on my last trip.ver the past two months there have been some exceptional nuggets found.
