De Paris aux Mines d'Or de l'Australie occidentale

Nature volume 63, page 440 (07 March 1901) | Download Citation



A DESCRIPTION of Western Australia from the mining point of view, illustrated with pictures characteristic of the scenes presented in a journey from Paris to Perth, and examined during short visits to other places in our premier gold-producing colony. The geography, population, government, mineral resources and gold fields of the colony are surveyed, and the condition and promise of individual mines commented upon. The author spent nearly a year in Westralia, and his book will direct the attention of his countrymen to an immense region, much of which is still little known.
