Charters Towers area.zip Charters Towers area.zip

The town was founded in the 1870s when gold was discovered by chance at Towers Hill on Christmas Eve 1871 by 12-year-old Aboriginal boy, Jupiter Mossman. Jupiter was with a small group of prospectors,  their horses bolted after a flash of lightning and while he was search-ing Jupiter found both the horses and a nugget of gold in a creek at the base of Towers Hill. Charters originated from the Gold Commis -sioner, W.S.E.M. Charters. A total of ten major gold reefs were eventually mined.

Mareeba Gold Map Pack FNQ Mareeba Gold Map Pack FNQ

A small field, 8km south-east from the Mareeba railway station, produced 11,846oz of fine gold, most of it from the Queen Constance lode, a north-north-west trending, rather flatly dipping quartz reef standing out as the crest of a low hill. The country rock consists of slate and phyllite of the Barron River Metamorphics. After an initial production of 1,770oz in one year, the grade fell to less than 1oz per ton, and after struggling on for another 8 or 9 years the field was abandoned. The ore also contained some pyrite, rare sphalerite and stibnite.

Gold was won from a number of localities, principally on the western side of the Atherton Geological Sheet area, towards the end of the 1800’s and early 1900’s. The economic depression of the 1930s revived the gold mining industry and resulted in new finds in the Mount Wandoo and Fluorspar areas. Most of the gold has been won from the Chillagoe Gold and Mineral Field; recorded production for this Field for the years 1909 to 1955 is 56,218 fine oz.
