What is empirical  evidence?
Empirical evidence is information acquired by observation or experimentation. This data is recorded and analyzed by scientists and is a central process as part of the scientific method. Why is everything posted on climate by Inhere always horseshit?
Poor old  Inhere on finders still does not know the difference between weather and climate!The silly old goat seems to think because some places have recently had very cold weather that this brings into question  AGW!  Only right wing rabble rubbish climate deniers like horseshit Inhere don't  seem to understand  that AGW will mean that some regions of the earth will become colder!

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.
