Doug is right on  climate change! "HappySAD7000user" and "Inhere"  and "Arizona"and the  village idiot 1halfgram4three("Halfie the stuff you write is rubbish")are wrong! "HappySAD7000user" and "Inhere"  and "Arizona" are  scientifically illiterate, climate denier easy beats!!!! They are terrified of the truth and too spineless to come here and debate  the climate issue!!!
The changing climate is NOT due to natural variation!
The  enormous body of diverse evidence, the physics and the overwhelming majority of climate scientists publishing in  recognized peer reviewed scientific journals agree that the earth is warming due predominately to  rising atmospheric  levels of anthropogenic C02!

Abandoned Hopes: Reef Mining on the Albert Goldfield,north-western NSW
Journal of Australasian Mining History, Vol. 6, September 2008
111
By KEN MCQUEEN
University of Canberra
s previously detailed in this journal, the Albert Goldfield in far north-western New South Wales was initially developed as an alluvial field exploiting scattered occurrences of near-surface, nuggetty and coarse-grained gold.After miners on the early rushes located and extracted most of this gold it was realized that for the field to become ‘permanent’, attention would need to be directed to discovery and mining of more substantial deep-lead alluvial and quartz-reef gold deposits. Quartz pebbles containing gold were observed during the early alluvial mining and gold-bearing quartz reefs were soon found in outcrop. Experienced miners noted
that the reefs and their slaty host rocks greatly resembled those at Bendigo in central Victoria, giving great hope that the field might prove to be a rich reef-mining district. This was not to be.Development of the reefs was plagued by the same problems facing the alluvial miners, notably lack of water and difficulty of supply to such an arid and isolated region. Companies were floated locally, in Melbourne and in Adelaide to raise capital to purchase the required machinery for hard rock mining and gold extraction, but getting large items of equipment to the remote field proved a Herculean task.
