150 years of mining the Tarkine. NW Tasmania

Postby Philski » Sun Jun 05, 2016 10:19 pm

This is a fantastic presentation on mining and life in the Tarkine area over a continuous 150 year + period. It includes some rare photos and historical accounts of the day to day goings on in a prospectors life. Several Key identities are noted and its worth while reflecting on the tenacity and perseverance of our historical prospectors, in what can only be described as trying conditions, even on a good day.

There is a fantastic image and accounts of Mcginty, Graue, Moore, Emmett, McKimmie, Job Savage and Websters who had the hotel on the other side of the river the Sweed would row passengers over to. The images open up into bigger ones for a better look simply by clicking them. The Gladstone Dredge is included. Its the one that was put in below the Rocky River.

That's awesome Phil.
My guess is most of those pictures are in the public domain, being pre-1955?
I spent a long few days writing about mining in the Tarkine on its Wikipedia page years ago, with thorough references from MRT, but someone(s) didn't like it and some of my work has gradually been undone.
Not to say the Tarkine isn't an amazing piece of natural beauty, but it also has a long and thorough (and continuous) history of mining and prospecting since the 1860s.
Hope you guys are safe in Sheffield. and didn't get too washed out!

Hi Miguel. This site only ever uses royalty free, paid or commons CC and GNU Free Documentation licensed images, all with copyright permission expressly given.

I asked Dr Haygarth for permissions to use his work. A good percentage of the images above are his own work. Its something we both do as a way of saying thanks to the original Author. And, covers our copyright responsibilities over and beyond what is called for. And, Dr Nic is very passionate about the area in general and our history and our State and its mining heritage. And he is really cool to talk to.

Regarding Copyright its 70 years after the Authors death in Australia. Unless, they give permission while they are still on this mortal coil. Or the image is a commercial transaction with rights. Or as above many of the images are taken by the author and used with permission.
the lowest copyright protection is life + 25 years in China and the most life + 100 years in Mexico.

It used to be 50 years in Australia but when the Australia / US Free Trade Agreement (AUSFTA) came into effect it moved up 20 years, more in line with the US's 80 year copyright protection.

Most of this and more is covered in full in the digital millennium copyright act (2000) And, also offers plenty of fair use previsions. And, covers countries that signed into the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Copyright Treaty in Geneva. Including Australia. While still offering outstanding protection to the original Author. (DMCA) http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf

wow, Even my own Tarkine site has gone from wikipedia! Seriously. You would think they would like some information from people that lived there, worked there, explored there and wrote about there would be relevent than even more of the usual left wing hippy dribble floating around.

Sorry, without even looking, the only link left on wiki that is ,,,, greenleft.org.au rotflmfao,,
They are better known as The Democratic Socialist Perspective (DSP) an Australian Marxist political group!
Hmm, i wonder who did it,,,,

They have ties to a stack of anti everything brigades. I read one report of one "citizen scientist" hand cuffing himself to an excavator bucket so the operator started it up and flipped him about abit. Poor thing, he would have nearly shat his organic alpaca felt undies when it started up.
