Stag in kalgoorlie
As I was semi forced to make my own way to work last week due to a ticketing cockup, I decided to stretch the Stags legs and cruise up to Kalgoorlie where I reside most of the week.
Kalgoorlie is a city of about 30,000 about 370 miles east of Perth.. it was founded where it is because of what is known as the Golden Mile, an incredibly well mineralised area about a mile long which has produced 100million ounces of gold give or take in the last 110 years
This shot is at the northern end of that "mile" and shows a few of the old headframes + the signpost for the golden pipeline trail.. all 650kilometres of it. It actually starts/ends in Mundaring about 3 miles from my house in Perth where a Dam was built to supply, via a very long pipe, the (parched) goldfields
This shot shows the Superpit ... the trucks you can make out are 300 tons worth... V16 etc etc
