History of Prospecting in the Pilbara Region

Prospecting has a long history in the Pilbara region, beginning with the early European exploration in the 19th century. While the area is primarily known for its iron mining, it has a rich history with other metals, including gold. Here are a few of the most critical points in that history:

  • Before the discovery of any gold, copper was discovered in Whim Creek in 1872, staring the mining industry in the area. The Whim Creek Copper Mine is still in operation today. In 1887, prospectors discovered gold 20km north.
  • In the following years, the Pilbara region became more popular, and gold prospecting grew, and more gold was discovered at different locations in the Pilbara region. Two of these locations were the Coongan River and Mallina where gold was found in the 19th century, but most interests in gold remained to the south in Western Australia’s goldfields area.
  • The current interest in prospecting in the area derives from an accidental discovery. Aerial cattle musters flew after a wayward cow and found a hidden prospector’s camp. When they returned with detectors, they found gold littering the area.
