Footnotes
Alluvial gold was first discovered at Bendigo Creek in 1851 and soon traced back to the source reefs. By June 1852, there were over 20,000 diggers in the area and, by 1862, it is estimated that the field had produced up to 4,000,000 ounces of gold. Mines in the area are still productive today.
