The prospects for next vear are most excellent, the demand is so good. But we must look deeper than the demand if we want to properly appreciate the position. We must look at the supply.

THE BAROSSA GOLD-FIELDS. SOME RICH STONE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
THE BAROSSA GOLD FIELDS. SOME RICH STONE. [By our Special Reporter.] It was something Iik9 25 years ago that the Barossa Range first attracted attention as mineral bearing country ; and the rich alluvial discoveries in the hills to the east of Gawler drew a large crowd of diggers together in a very short space of time. It was a big rush, and in a few months the surface of the country presented a succession of upheavals. Good payable gold was found, the returns for the tirst six months amounting to something like 20,000 oz., and doubtless a large quantity was discovered which was never heard of. When the alluvial worked out a good deal of money was sunk on reefing in the district; but although dividends were paid in some instances share holders in Barossa properties bad reason to regret that they had joined in the different ventures. The Barossa had practically died out of the memory of many, but recent discoveries of alluvial and reef gold near the Devil's Nose are now causing consi...
