    2018 03 22 Eight Mile Diggings & Around Three Mile Dam

    This was a 31/2 days and 40Km hard walk mostly around 8Mile Diggings between Kiandra and Cabramurra in Kosciuszko National Park. It entailed tracing races & looking for mining sites such as dams, diggings, sluiced gullies. I also found a 3Mile Dam Sluice Gully and visited Reid’s Mining area on the Goldseekers Trail.

    19-22 Mar 2018 – Eight Mile Diggings, Three Mile Dam Area (Kiandra Trip 14)

    Summary Interesting Items

    • Day1 – Found my way down to the 8Mile diggings compliments of an old SMA access track
    • Day1 – Found the main Sluice Gully, Lettes B was what I worked out
    • Day1 – Found several SMA/Snowy Hydro trails apparently now used to support Optical Fibre control cables
    • Day1 – Found another Gully which seems to be Lettes A area and hints of another Gully to the north. Found the Header Dam way down next to an SMA track
    • Day1 – Found some old rusty implements and small pile of stones next to the main Sluice Gully
    • Day1 – Last thing I went across the Link Rd and climbed up on the start of the ridge that carries the main race from Dry Dam. I found the race and GPS’d several  points before following it back to above the Link Road where it stops
    • Day2 – Walked around nominal site of Morris A which doesn’t seem to exist, Morris B sites and found another small Sluice Gully which I labelled Morris C  which has an intact rusty old pipeline to it from a higher race
    • Day2 – Found a race east of the Link Road above Morris A nominal area which was heading for Morris B/C areas
    • Day2 – Walked down to 8Mile Ck under the powerline, crossed to the Ck and found a strange assortment of dams or embankments plus another small pipeline
    • Day2 – After lunch back at the car I went back across the road and walked the Main race up Larry’s Ridge about 2Km
    • Day3 – Rained quite a bit but got out and walked around 3Mile Dam and some of the Race from the Dam to Bullocks Head Ck
    • Day4 – Checked out a Sluice Gully at 3 Mile Dam
    • Day4 – Walked the Goldseekers Trail and checked out Reeds Mine, Battery and Huts site
    • Day4 – Returned to 8Mile Diggings and found another long thinish gully and a cluster of 3 more Sluiced Gullies

    The following are notes on my 3 1/2 days trip. Some are detailed in regard to mining infrastructure such as races, dams, and diggings sites. Some might seem excessive work but learning where the water is taken from and where the dams are, leads to finding the actual diggings, sluice gullies and even mine tunnels. Many of the sites are in remote rugged country. Many races run through thick scrub and can be very hard to detect and follow. After a while you can work out where the races go and often only need to verify a sampling of the race locations with GPS waypoints. Sometimes they follow around large features like mountains and hills. Its often a treasure hunt to see if they follow contours or cut across a saddle or track to defeat your original thought as to where they were going.

    This trip was one of many over several years checking mining and other historical sites around Kiandra to help historian David Scott and ultimately Kosciuszko Huts Association (KHA) with documenting European historical activities within Kosciuszko National Park (KNP). In the process many hut and mining sites have been found, GPS’d and photographed.

    This was a 3 1/2 days and a total of 40Km of walking from 3Mile Dam Camping Area, and two parking spots along The Link Road, to the Eight Mile Diggings area, some diggings and races around 3Mile Dam and the Goldseeker’s Trail. I set up a base camp at 3 Mile Dam north side camping area and drove to the various spots.

    I had originally planned a second base camp at Rocky Plain or Wares Yards Camping spot if the weather and time prevailed, but this did not eventuate. I had also planned to look further around the Dry Dam and southern end of Larry’s Ridge for various sites and the main race to Eight Mile diggings but again the weather stopped me and the need to further check Eight Mile diggings took priority.

    19th Mar – Day 1

    Up early & left home 7AM, stopping for a paper then at Maccas Cooma for a break & coffee. Then straight to 3Mile Dam. I setup my tent on the northern side of the dam where there were several caravans and campers already.

    I had an early lunch and then as the weather was great I decided to check out the 8Mile Lettes Diggings in the afternoon, although I had originally planned to allocate a whole day ie Tues for this task.

    Lettes B
    8 Mile Lettes B Sluice

    I parked at the spot I had marked as Poss Pkg 3 which turned out to be the perfect location. It has adequate space for several cars to get off the road and it has an access 4WD drive that is unmarked and not obvious. I went down the track just carrying a day pack with minimal supplies. I initially stuck to the track and then passed two junctions when I saw an old Snowy Hydro sign saying there was a control cable 6 feet down. Turns out there is an optical fibre under the track used to communicate with various Snowy Hydro assets ie gauges and stream take ons I suspect. After the third junction I realised the main track was maybe circumnavigating the target diggings, so I turned around and went back to a spot which I worked out should be close to Lettes B Diggings. As it turned out I only just turned off the track into light bush when I saw a race and a mound and from the top of the mound I could see directly to the south right in front of me a large circular type of sluiced gully filled with muddy water. It was quite large. It was around 30m deep from near my position and I thought around 100M or more long and wide. However I think it’s now around 100m long north-south but only 40m wide east-west, although wider if you include the slopes on both sides.

    I then tried to follow the race back to the north east and found it crossed the track I had come down on. I found another couple of races with one of these also heading across the track and the other heading east up an incline. It was quite a large race. I now wish I had followed this one.

    I then tried to walk around to the east side of the gully but I got stuck in thick scrub that forced me further to the east and eventually down into an east-west gully that was covered with ferns. I then headed west towards the main gully I ended up in teas trees and grassy patches that started to sink into mud and water. Shit! I retreated quickly after getting thick mud into one of my boots.

    I then fought my way up the side gully as well as a creek I had entered and continued higher. I noticed a large higher type of gully to the north and ended up in a wide open valley I thought. I then headed north as I was close to David Scott’s GPS reading for Lette’s hut site; one from the database and a new one from a writeup about 8 Mile Diggings. The first hut site was clearly wrong as it would have been in the gully a little way on well sloped land. I continued through thick scrub towards the other reading which ended up being right next to another SMA track. I looked around but couldn’t see any signs of any hut site. It may have been destroyed by building the 4WD track. I then decided to go down the track which rejoined the first track I took at Jn 1. I then returned to the top of the main sluice and wound my way down its west side finding sign of several races and came across a possible hut site, although I am sceptical as it’s a bit sloped with a pile of stones and maybe a small stone retaining wall. But it does have a small pile of stones and several very old rusty implements: shovel head, old file, part of a cooking pot & a horseshoe. It was most likely a tent site and fireplace. I took around 7 pictures in several visits past this site.

    Coming down the access track and walking down the west side of the main sluice I think is the best way to view this site.

    I continued down the west side of the sluice past the bottom of the sluice, across a very large side gully entering the tail of the sluice. I then could see a track across the other side of the tail climbing up the other side of the valley. I then crossed another small side gully and cut across the top reaching another SMA Track. I then turned east and followed it up reaching another junction. I suspect this other track I reached went around to the track I had joined near the supposed Lettes hut site. So I followed it back around. On the way back I came across a dug out area below the track that looked suspiciously like a dam and which I now feel is the header dam. It’s about 60m long and 20m wide and may have been wider except for the track. I later realised it was the same open area I had partially walked through earlier.

    I went back up the track to the nominal site of Lette’s Hut and looked around further without success.

    I then went up the hill through the bush and after nearly 100m I came across a small race coming from the south and in a few metres it ended in a large gully that started just near me and went down and away to the NNW. I didn’t think much of the gully so I headed up further through steep scrub to the SE and in less than 150m came across a deep race not far from the road. I then followed the race down parallel to the road past a couple of spot points DS had marked. I could not find them as I think the road cut out some of the race. However I picked up a race further down and followed it as it turned westerly then north westerly before dropping steeply down into a side gully which I did not follow down. I had the feeling it was heading down towards the header dam, but I could not see properly. I returned to the car and decided to check out the best way up onto the ridge to the south east so I would be ready to try it the next day. My initial attempt was the wrong spot as the cutting was very steep with limited foot or hand holds. I made it up and then tracked south west picking up a deep large race after 80m. I followed it up about 80m and GPS’d 3 points before returning to the car and found an easier access point some 80m down the road towards Cabramurra.

    It was 5PM and I had done some 4 hours this afternoon so I returned to 3Mile dam for the night.

    I had walked 7.9Km this day although the GPS didn’t record the last 150m. The terrain was a mixture of easy track walking and very tough bush terrain.

    20th Mar – Day 2

    Morris’ Workings – I drove back down the Link Road and this time parked at Parking Spot 2 which is some extra wide space next to the road under the powerline.

    I walked down a short stretch of road looking for Morris’ A workings but could see nothing. So I crossed the road and headed up through a mixture of scrub and open woodland and in 50m came across a race. I wasn’t sure which direction it was running so I followed it south a little then doubled back and picked it up as it progressed north and downwards. I tracked it overall for only about 140m. I think it was heading for Morris’ B workings and likely coming from 8Mile Creek. It may have come a couple of Km from that creek.

    I recrossed the road and went south again and headed downhill looking for Morris’ A site. I could not see anything so I headed north across a small creek, found some nice blackberries which I sampled. They were ripe and nice. In fact there were lots around all ready to eat. I also found some red and black normal berries but I didn’t sample them. Apparently the black ones are quite edible.

    Edible Blackberries

    After just 100m of hard going I found a small gully like area where I could see some cutting away around the top of the hill near me and also a small race going downhill which was probably a tail race. I walked further around to the north-east and found a couple of similarly dug out small gullies, a small piece of rusty large diameter pipe and north of these gullies a large area of flat rocks which may have been natural. These site seem to align with Morris’ B site. To the north of the gullies and rocky area was a deep creek. I went down and crossed it and could see that parts of the north bank seemed like they may have been dug out in several spots. There was also a small creek flowing with fresh water. I climbed up out of this creek gully quickly as it had some blackberries as well.

    I was then heading north to north-west towards the powerline with the objective of searching for David’s points ‘Possible Sites e, f & g’.

    After around 75m I ran headlong into another deep gully. I decided to go around to its east and just passing the north edge of the gully I came across a rusty metal pipeline which looked the same type and size as the one back in Morris’ B site. I then followed the pipeline, which was largely intact, uphill for 65m until it suddenly stopped. I looked around and could not find any further links but I did see a race coming down from the South-East direction which would have crossed the road and maybe linked up with the earlier race. So I deduced the race brought water down from 8 Mile and for the final run it linked into a metal pipeline for its final rush into the gully.

    I then doubled back and followed the pipeline down to the edge of the gully and then down steeply and into the gully and could see it had attached an angle piece at its end. I assume the final nozzle section had been taken away.

    So this is another sluiced out small gully. Say Morris C site. I then GPS’d some points to mark the bottom of the gully & could see a small tailrace leaving the bottom of the gully. I also used my compass edge, a stick and pen to work out the diameter of the pipe which was a fairly thin metal. The diameter was 36.5cm, which was probably around 14 3/8 inches. However on reflection the pipe might not have been completely circular so it’s likely a 14 in diameter pipe.

    I then finally headed for the powerline clearing and Site e. I looked around the powerline for Site e but could not see anything. I think there was a pylon close to where site e might have been. There is also a small gully to the north-west of the powerline at the edge of the clearing but I declined to check it out. I went down the clearing under the powerline and had to wind my way through heaps of scrub and finally edge along and cross the creek that came down from Morris’ B site.

    Then I came across another track. It’s the same track I had followed around Lette’s Site and contains a SnowyHydro Optical Fibre cable under it. I then went along the track for less than 50m before I could find a suitable spot to try and cross 8Mile Creek which was running just below the track. If I had only gone another 70m I would have crossed it easily on a SnowyHydro bridge/causeway.

    I was however able to scramble down a steep bank, edge under some scrub and cross on some rocks without getting wet feet. I also was able to fill up my water bottle with 8Mile water which seemed drinkable. I then headed across some grassy fields and under the powerline again. I could see an access track under the powerline that headed away and uphill somewhere. Just to the north was Site g. However it was a large slightly sloped open area scraped down to hard surface layer with no soil on top. It looked to me like an old SMA site. I could see an embankment slightly downhill which I GPS’d as a Dam, which I named Dam1. I went downhill from here as I saw another pipeline running downhill a little from below the small dam. I also noticed a second dam below and close to where the pipeline broke into a 2nd section but ended. There was a small gully just to the south of the end of the pipeline but it did not go down to 8Mile Creek. I was now really confused as here was evidence of some mining possibly by the same group as Morris’ as the pipeline was the same type and diameter. However the dams didn’t quite fit as there was no water source for these as far as I could see.

    I walked around further and realised that the Dam1 was covered with thick scrub behind it and found it went a long way around 95m along the edge of the slope. Dam 2 was much shorter and I found a Dam3 and Dam4 below these two Dams. All these dam I think may have just been embankments put in by the SMA to stop erosion.

    Site f. There was nothing here as it lay between Dams 3 & 4. Looking at an old SMA Map I noted later that from 2015 Snowy Resources Maps / Topo_SMA63k1960-70/ Cabramurra_SMA1964_Ed2photo_slvic.jpg & Cabramurra_SMA1970.jpg show a dam on 8Mile Creek, a construction track down from the The Link Rd. They also show a track down Larry’s Ridge and a 4WD continuing down below the Link Road past Lette’s site and then down to Section Ck Camp and also Tumut2 PS. The dam on 8Mile was obviously only temporary whilst they built the Tumut 2 PS and was then rehabilitated. Thus the embankments where Site f & g might have been.

    I then returned to my crossing but went south along the track and then recrossed 8Mile Creek on the SnowyHydro track passing 3 junctions where other tracks went off to various pylons on the Cabramurra to Yass powerline. I then walked along The Link Rd back to my car. Just north of the intersection where I joined The Link Rd there is a further junction with a track going South-east to several more powerlines and I think it mentioned a water supply. Looking at the map it looks like it also went to the airfield. I also noted my Parking Spot 1 is a very good parking spot and gives easy access to both these junctions.

    I moved my car back to Parking Spot 3, had a late lunch, then went back up to Larry’s Ridge and followed the main race uphill about 1.7Km. I initially followed the race closely but as it started to drop off the north side of the ridge it became more congested with fallen logs, so I took a short cut and then struggled to find the race further, along, although I did pick it up again. I did also notice a vague 4WD that seems to follow from the main powerline crossing along part of the race, then took a south turn and maybe then follows on the south of the ridgeline. This could be as the race seems to skirt part of the ridgeline by being more out to the north-east of the ridgeline. I planned to only go so far and not past the 2nd powerline. I didn’t quite make it as it was a warm afternoon and I was running out of water and time. I turned around and went back to the car planning the next day to approach the area from the Dry Dam side.

    During the morning I had heard and enormous number of motor bikes roaring along The Link Road. This is a problem on this road and the Snowy Mountains highway where the bikes travel in groups and often speed around dangerous corners.

    I went down to Racecourse Ck off the Snowy Mountains Highway, washed and filled up my water containers as I knew the catchment was fairly clean and pure.

    At night the wind picked up and clouds came over from the east with spitting rain, or more likely low cloud.

    Snowy 2.0

    A group from Tumbarumba who had been fishing down on the Tumut below Round Mountain dropped by for a fish and gave me a box of wood as they left. They said they heard that Snowy Hydro were setting up a camp at Ravine/Lobbs Hollow and they had taken in a bull dozer in three parts by chopper as the road was too difficult. I also noticed numerous chopper flights to and from that area to Cabramurra every day. I assume they use Cabramurra for accommodation for the surveyors etc.

    I had done 11.5Km this day.

    21st Mar – Day 3

    It was wet and windy in the morning so I stayed in my tent then migrated to my car to review where I was at and read a book instead on my Kindle.

    Later in the day it was a bit better so I took a walk out to the Lookout, finding Roaring Mag Hut and a couple of quarries along the way. I ended up taking the old road right down to the Link Road which is quite walkable. The old road is block off near the Link Road by a row of boulders. On my way back I walked around some of the north side camp ground and found some nice spots I hadn’t seen before.

    I noticed a concrete pad near the toilet and wonder if it’s one of the pad that are referred in the sign about the SMA old camp area. It is very hard to reconcile the map on the sign with the layout today.

    Greg 3M Dam

    I also finally followed a distinctive race near where I camped through thick scrub behind my tent. On the way I noticed a large gully just below the race. I continued to follow the race in returning bleak conditions.It crossed the Link Rd and went north-east for 150m before turning south and following Kings Cross Rd.

    It was getting late and dark so I just took a sample reading further along and on my return I went past the north edge of the RMS Snow Clearing Depot. It’s quite a large race and clearly was picking water from some of the tributaries of Bullock Head Creek. It needs few more sample checks to work out how far it went.

    The night was again wet and windy.

    I had walked 9.0Km this day.

    22nd Mar – Day 4

    It was still windy and wet with low misty cloud. I decided to use my time looking around the Goldseeker’s Trail and if the weather was not too bad make a quick recheck of Lette’s area and come back another day for the Dry Dam area.

    3Mile Dam Sluice

    Around 8.30AM I went back to the race near my camp site and followed it where it branched and could follow the secondary race right to the top of the gully I had seen before. I was able to drop into it and walked down to its exit. Based on the race and the shape of the gully it seemed to me to be a typical sluiced out gully. I gps’d the top and bottom and put a point in the middle. A small side gully gives an easy exit to the camp area, although previous campers have used this side gully as a toilet.

    In the gully I came across an old brown beer bottle which said NSW Bottling Co and a dated 1972. I assume it dates from the later SMA period or just earlier campers.

    Goldseeker’s Trail

    I drove to the car park on The Link Rd and walked the Goldseeker’s Trail to the edge of the Mt Selwyn Long Stay Car Park, then returned and continued the loop, visiting the Mine Huts Site, the 1925 Rover, the Gold Stamping Battery and Reid’s Mine Shaft. I gps’d all of these sites.

    Rover from 1925
    1925 Rover

    It’s interesting but a NPWS sign says the mine was last worked by Jim Reed, not Reid, and the car was a Rugby 1925 engine which was used to power the Stamper Battery which was manufactured by P.N. Russell & Co. Engineers Sydney 1872.

    It seemed to me that there were around six prospecting trenches or holes around the mine shaft. It has a wire grill over it so people in theory can’t fall in.

    Lette’s Diggings Visit 2

    On return to my car it had cleared a little although it was still windy. I then drove down to Car Spot 3 and walked down the trail. After around 250m I turned left into the bush and walked a further 50m before I came across the long deep gully I had last seen on Day1. I noted it was quite deep and wide further up but narrowed as it went downhill. I followed along the edge until reaching what was probably the tail which then continued for 75m until it just petered out. Overall based on seeing the very top and bottom the gully was around 120m long with a tail of a further 80m.

    The only real questions are where did the race come from and where did all the wash go. I assume the race at the top came off the main race higher up but it’s unclear.

    I nominally named the sluice Lette’s D Long Narrow Gully.

    I then went down the side track onto the main track then stopped at the top of the main sluice and went around it again taking several readings to where the edge of the hole was WPs E1- E4. (E meaning edge of gully) However I was able to drop down near E1 & E2 and take a picture from WP Photo Point. So my GPS track that emulates the main hole is really where the sluice hole drops away very steeply. However the area effected is slightly larger especially on the east side which has a lot of soil removed and still with bare earth although heavily scrub covered.

    I revisited the possible hut site and was able to get to a spot right above the end of the gully where there is a natural or man-made small damming of the outlet to the tail race. I could have dropped down and walked across to the other side which is much lower across the other side, although it looked a little dangerous to get down.

    I went west from near the possible hut site and came upon a race which I followed. I was just about to give up, when on going north to pick up the 4WD trail, I noticed a large lower depression through the vegetation. I thought maybe there was something down there so I edged closer and came to the edge of a drop. I gps’d it and continued around taking a range of readings E11-E26 being the edge of gullies, to try and capture the outline of what is there.

    Lette’s C Diggings – Cluster of 3 Gullies

    What I had come across was a completely new cluster of gullies that I had not expected. These were well hidden being mostly covered in green vegetation with a small amount of stones in the middle. I was able to enter to the middle of the diggings by walking down a thin isthmus of land WPs E14, E16 that then allowed an easy descent. It was weird as on this thin slip of dirt I could see through trees to a gully on either side. As it turned out there were 3 gullies with Gully 2 I think being the deepest. I named these as I came upon them Gully 1, 2 & 3. Some of the edge WPs I linked to photos. Gully 2 had a beautiful large fern right in its middle. Just to the west of Gully 1 there was a well-defined Tail Race edged with piles of stones on each side. I suspect this race ended up as the WP Side Gully I had crossed on Day1 as I walked out to a SMA track. I remember that gully being narrow but quite deep.

    There was also an exit gully closer to Gully 3 although I am unsure if any sluice material went down there. I think it went down to 8Mile Ck as a creek west of the main sluice tailrace & creek.

    After viewing this new diggings area I went up to the track which was very close to Gully 2 and had lunch. I then went down and around and up the track south of the diggings and came back around to the header dam again. This time I looked more closely for any sign of a race coming down to the dam.

    I did see and have a quick look at a large gully east of the track near the Header Dam and could see signs of a creek that comes down crossing under the track just south of the header dam. I thought I could see signs of a groove through the grass close by to the north side. However I think the SMA track construction may have covered any race over in this area. I pondered over the gully to the east and could see that it had two branches higher up. I thought at the time it was a natural higher valley but when I reflected on how the main race higher up had suddenly dropped quickly down into a gully it made me think that maybe this large gully system which was mostly wide, ie not a narrow gully, may have been sluiced. It doesn’t look like a normal sluiced area as it well grassed and vegetated. I note also that David Scott had placed his header dam location on the northern side of this area.

    I did some further walking below the track and north of the header dam and found a large race that came from the header dam and went a short distance before swinging west and dropping down in the gully below, which I presumed is Lette’s A workings. To try and capture the size of these workings and gully I went around the edge of this area on its north-eastern and north sides which is reasonably accessible from the track but which required getting through some thick scrub. I was able to get to 4 points close to the edge ie. WPs E7-E10.

    I then went down the track to Tk Jn1 and took the main track back to the car by 2.40PM

    I returned to my campsite packed up and headed home which I made by about 7PM.

    I walked 11.7Km this day.

    Discussion on the Areas and Issues Unclear

    There is a lot of dense scrub around Lette’s Diggings combined with some open woodland. However a lot of fallen timber makes it hard at times. Around the main gully there is a lot of thick scrub on the east side with bare earth under, indicating that it has been worked ie sluiced over. Lower down there is a large open area near an east gully flowing down to it. This latter gully is filled with ferns and thick scrub mixed with some blackberries. However it was possible to walk through it. However it led to the large open area that is covered with water lying on the bottom with soft mud under. There is also a lot of grass and tea tree and it is very soft under feet. Thus it’s very hard to get a round. To the SE there are high rising slopes well covered with scrub. There is a steep climb up the east creek/gully which opened out to the NE into a closed valley with steep sides to the North and West with rising slopes to the east and SE. This I assumed was Lettes A area.

    Various races cross the main track down to reach the top of the main gully and some races continue on the gullies to the SW. I am unclear where races come down to reach the top side of the gully.

    It might be possible that gully above header dam down which main race comes could also have been sluiced but on reflection it looked more natural than any of the sluiced gullies. Could be there is another Header Dam higher up

    It is certainly unclear where races to Long thin Gully and the north top side of the Main Sluice actually come from. Some races come from north side of the access track down the ridge. I noted that races that crossed the main track had to recross somewhere higher as the terrain dropped away to the north of the track and one can see it clearly in Google Earth. So there must have been at least one race crossing the access track higher up. Walking from the main access track across to D Gully I did not come across any races.

    Lette’s D Long narrow gully might have been conduit for water coming down from main race to get to Lette’s A, B, C. That’s hard to visualise but I noted on a map it’s in the right location to get water from top down to the area north of Lette’s A & B and maybe also on to C. However I did look around the bottom of the tail and could not see any continuance with a standard race.
