THE TARSHISH DIGGINGS, ABERCROMBIE RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 10 September 1851

rHE TARSHISH . UIGGIMG3, ABER. CROMBIE RIVEd. My dear Sir— I have much pleasure in congratulating the good people of Bathurst on the fact of their having an extensive South Western Gold Field on the Abercrom bie River. There nre now 40 persons at work earning from 7 to. 10s. per day each, and I have no doubt when the waters sub side the river will prove hiff hi v auriferous. The geological structure of the. country is highly favorable to the production of gold, and is of great extent. You are therefore quite correct in your statement to ,noe a short time ago that the next gold field of any magnitude would be discovered on the Abercrombie River. The place has been visited by Mr. Margraves the gold disco verer, who named it ' Tarshish.' as you see by the heading of my letter. The diggings 'are situate 10 miles S. E. from Ctrcoar about 17 miles from Mulgunnia, 50 miles' from Bathurst and 70 miles from Gbulbum. ' They .are claimed by.the.Goulburn people who have given the rn the designa...
