The discovery of some small auriferous quartz reefs wasworked to shallow depths in the 1890’s around Hall and Ginninderra. Alluvial goldwas also won from the Goodradigbee River to the west. Gold returns however, indicatethat sluicing operations carried out in the 1880’s and between 1913 and 1915on alluvial ground at Brindabella were not particularly successful.
