Moonta Mines. Drew, G.J. 1991
A guide to the walking trail within the Moonta historic mine site. In 1861, a shepherd, Patrick Ryan, discovered traces of copper in earth burrowed out of a wombat hole on the pastoral lease of W.W Hughes. The discovery was made in a patch of dense scrub known by aboriginals as Moonta-Moontera. Two parties subsequently applied for mining leases over the discovery, but Hughes was eventually successful. Hughes formed the Tipara Mining Association (later the Moonta Mining Co.) and began operations in late 1861, causing a rush of miners from the Burra and Wallaroo mines.
