      Take an underground tour of the Karrs Reef Gold Mine and pay your respects to the many Chinese gold miners laid to rest in the historic cemetery.

      State Library of Victoria Antoine Fauchery and Richard Daintree produced iconic images of both early gold diggers and the landscapes scarred by the exploding search for gold, which attracted miners from all over the world and created the boom that made Melbourne the fastest growing metropolis of the time.   The Canadian mine owner RNC Minerals says the find, from a single cut in the mine, includes about 9, ounces of high grade gold. At today's gold price, that's worth some $11 million.
