Placer Gold Mining and Hard Rock Mining in Australia - History, Folk Lore, Pictures, Photographs, and More

I have found another fascinating free resource online. It is the website of the National Library of Australia. One can request copies of works, find out where books are, order books for reading in the library, etc. But the feature I like (flying to Australia and smoking my pipe in the reading room is not in the budget) is the online feature. Next to your search term is a box for how you wish to search and the limits to that search. I chose "online".
If you click the link below marked with asterisks, you will be taken to a search page for the library. At the top, enter your search terms. I entered "gold prospecting equipment" and found three things "available online". Look to the right of each entry and you will see three colors: yellow, green, and blue. Yellow signifies stuff that can be read online. Enter the search terms of your choice and find more material.

I found:
1. Rise and progress of the Coolgardie Gold Mining and Prospecting Company, Limited [electronic resource] : registered 2nd August, 1894
