David Mitchell | The Miner

David Mitchell never lost his love and interest in mining. He searched for gold on his own property at Steele’s Flats and also had interests in the Anderson Creek (now Warrandyte) area.

As the Evelyn Observer reported on November 16, 1883, pg 2:

Anderson’s Creek
Mr David Mitchell has purchased from Messrs. Stiggants and Hartrick their “Crown Company Dyke Claim” for the sum of £425. He intends at once to carry the tunnel from Grant’s battery right through, and I think there is very little doubt but it will turn out a profitable venture.

Today, Pound Bend is a popular tourist attraction at Warrandyte.
