Map of the Foster goldfield showing the geological composition and period stratas of the region with the gold desposits shown in yellow. Gold was discovered at Foster in 1870 by a group of timber cutters. While the finds were never as rich as those elsewhere in Victoria, goldmining continued through till the 1930s. Later in Dec. 1872 gold was discovered to the north at nearby Turton's Creek which developed into a relatively rich field - the inset shows the extent of the gold deposit running through the valley. Relief is shown by hachures.
