Old mining towns of New South Wales



Lithgow had iron and steel, and still has coal. Newnes, Joadja and Hartley Vale were shale-mining centres, Yerranderie had silver and tin, Sofala
and Hill End had gold. Apart form Lithgow, these are virtual "ghost towns" now. All are within range of a weekend expedition from my home.
