Junction Mine – Broken Hill
I was out taking photos the other day and I took some photos of the old Junction Mine when I thought why not take a photo of this sign posted at the front of the mine to give you full details and a map of the entire mine.
Broken Hill has a few mines all of which I will share with you in this and other story.
The Junction Mine began its life in 1884.
In 1886 three shafts were dug.
In 1906 the mine closed due to the cost.
In 1946 the mine was reopened under new owners.
It was finally closed in 1972.
You can read the full story in the picture showing you the boards in front of the mine shaft.
Does your town have any mining history?
