Research  area Black Hill historic artefacts inventory
Project Description According to the 2006 Ballarat Heritage Precincts Study, the “precinct at Black Hill contains the sites of a number of mines which operated at Black Hill and remnants of their plant and works can still be located in the area today, one of the few places in Ballarat city where extensive evidence remains.” This project aims to identify and locate these remnants via geo-referenced photographs of the historic artefacts linked to information regarding the items, creating a database that can be accessed and supplemented by city planners, parkland managers, historians and the general public.
