What was it like to be an Underground Operator in Ballarat in the 19th Century
By P L McCarthy 1
Abstract
Peter McCarthy, Managing Director of Australian Mining Consultants Pty Ltd, Melbourne, describes the work and life of underground mines in Ballarat last century. He traces the History of The Band and Albion Mine along with it’s remarkable operator, Robert Serjeant. By underground operator I don't mean an alluvial miner on the diggings. I'm talking about management of any extensive underground mine, which employed hundreds of miners. I intend to illustrate this by reference to one underground operator and one mine. Our underground operator is Robert Malachi Serjeant and the mine, The Band of Hope and Albion Consuls Ltd, better known as The Band and Albion, which Serjeant managed for 30 years
