NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY. Shares of 4/-. black. No 1780. The New South Wales gold rush of the 1850s gave birth to the Hill End gold mining town in Bathurst Region. Its peak was in the 1870s with up to 8,000 miners. By 1945, the population had dropped to 700, yet this company was still locally active. With only 70 residents left today (2017 figure), local mining has become history. First time in our auctions.
