Abandoned Gold Mine in Blackwood?
« on: May 13, 2019, 07:07:37 PM »
Hello everyone!

I was just wodnerign If anyone knows of an old abandonded gold mine in the Blackwood area. I have done some research and have been told some really nice graptolite fossils have been there. I have found an old mine in Bullengarook where I have also found some graptolites but was wondering If anyone could give me some directions to this site?

Thanks,
Dan

Graptolites can be found just out of Chewton on the Fryerstown rd in a road cutting close to the Wattle Gully mine.
There are also a couple of good sites at Spring Gully near Bendigo.
