Description

This book tells the story of the gold mining town of Waiuta, on the West Coast of the South Island.

The discovery of the Birthday Reef near Greek Creek in November 1905 marked the beginning of a flourishing 45-year chapter in West Coast history. Waiuta developed as an industrial town clustered around an ever deepening mine shaft and went on to become New Zealand’s second biggest goldmine.
