Plan of Alluvial Works, East Cadia Property, 1880.


The Scottish Australian Mining Company’s plan of East Cadia shows the original copper workings as well as the later gold workings at Trathen’s Reef, together with the associated water races. The old copper mine workings include the East Cadia Copper Stopes (The Cadiangullong Mine), Murphy’s Shaft and the East Cadia Engine House, as well as various drives or adits. Does the East Cadia Engine House mark the site where construction of the engine house commenced in 1862?
