During the Gold rush of 1864, Four reefs were worked on the Good Hope Spur.
These reefs were the best performing mines in the Crooked River Goldfields.
The Good Hope Consolidated Mining company was responsible for the development of the gold mining operation.
In 1865 they erected a 12 head battery stamper to crush rock and extract gold from the 4 adits.
The stamper was powered by a portable 10hp steam engine and Cornish boiler.
The Good Hope mine was worked from 1865 to 1906 producing around 23,300oz of gold.
