Mineshafts (approximate)

The accuracy of these shaft locations, particularly those derived from newspaper and company records, is generally poor. However this database includes many shafts not located in any of the other sources. Mine Shaft Locations were collected by a variety of methods from 1869 in some areas of the state. Mainly concentrating in Ballarat and Bendigo. In places a shaft may be recorded multiple times with a different source. In cases where several shaft locations are shown close together (generally with separations less than stated position errors) and they have different sources, it is possible that one shaft has been mapped several times. In cases where several shaft locations are shown close together but they have the same information source, it is possible that each shaft location represents a different shaft on the ground.
