This last month alone there were 30 oz and 20 oz nuggets taken from the golden triangle in Victoria, and a rather nice 78 oz nugget taken from the gold fields in the Pilbara, Western Australia, and a 28 oz nugget from near Leonora, W. More and more overseas enthusiasts are visiting this wonderful country and trying their luck.

We hear that many are being rewarded with fine nuggets.

The first project by the society was to commission local sculptress Dorothy Saaghy to create a life-size statue of a Chinese miner depicting the discovery of the Canton Lead.

This statue can be seen in the temporary offices of the society on the Adelaide road on the northern edge of town.

There was said to be 500 sly grog shanties on the field at one time.

Beef and mutton prices rose to eight pence a pound and before the autumn rains came, water cost up to sixpence a bucket.

Being three miles in length, the lead was to become the richest shallow alluvial goldfield in the world.The Chinese, having been responsible for the discovery of the Canton Lead, continued to play a major role in the development of the city of Ararat.It was to promote the public awareness of the role played by the Chinese in the discovery of gold and the settlement of Ararat that the Ararat Chinese Heritage Society was formed.The society is preparing a site, including the original mine for the new Chinese Gum San museum just across the road.Ararat today is a city of 8000 people astride the Western Highway between Melbourne and Adelaide in the Great Dividing Range.We welcome visitors from overseas and wish you luck with your endeavours.
