About Hannans North Tourist Mine

The Hannans North Tourist Mine site is historically important as it was one of the first mines in the Kalgoorlie area. DL Doolette first made the application for the lease at Hannans North in 1893; only five months after Paddy Hannan, Tom Flanagan and Dan Shea discovered gold at Kalgoorlie. Gold was extracted from this site using the original shaft between 1934 and 1952. The Great Boulder Propriety Gold Mine Ltd held the lease until 1934. In 1935 the Broken Hill Propriety Company Ltd acquired the lease and worked the mine from 1935 to 1952. From 1952 to 1991 the mine was worked on an occasional basis by tributors; groups of independent miners who are granted permission to work company owned mines, with payment based on the value of the ore extracted. In 1991 KCGM acquired the lease for the purpose of opening the site to visitors.
