Hi All,

I am wondering if someone can help. We were told of a good place to prospect and told the name of a well to locate. Unfortunately have not been able to locate on any map so far. Have looked at historical maps and geo maps etc., any ideas how I would be able to locate this would be appreciated.. I thought all wells and bores would be marked on maps. Just wondering where to go from here. We are in WA.

Thanks

G'day Goldiewa

Sometimes the names are just local names and not what might be the proper name on a map, so the only thing I can suggest is try and get the name of other wells/bores in the general area and then try and narrow it down from there.

Also Tengraph has the name of bores and wells in red writing, you need to zoom in to read them but it may help.

Hello GoldieWA,
In addition to what Dave has mentioned, once you travel to the general area you will notice all the old wells and bore tanks have the names painted on them.
Unfortunately the Government (Greens) buy back of large tracts of land have seen many of the tanks and mills removed.

Good luck with your search.
Cheers
Peter

Gday Goldie
As far as I know there is no way of finding out a bore or well location by its' name. You could try asking locals in the area you are going to. That's probably the best bet. If it's in the Murchison/East Murchison I may be able to help, if you can give me a general area. I know that country pretty well. Do it by PM if you like.
If it's an old mining area and you have a mine name or number, Tengraph is the go for finding it.
cheers
Brett
