|3524||unknown||Location||Hall Road, south side, approx 200m past Lynn Lane. It is sitting upside down in a paddock near a large Walnut tree.|
|3525||unknown||Origin and purpose||It appears that the conical separator was part of the gold recovery process used on the Carrick Battery (see location #378 for more details). The Carrick Battery's 10 head stamper crushed the quartz in the mortar boxes. The pulp was then run over electroplated copper plates and into the conical separator which has a jet of water entering at the bottom and assisted in the separation. From the cone the sand passed to the cyanide tanks.|
|3526||c1920s||The separator was used as a water tank.||In Hall Road, the separator had been mounted on the bank of the terrace behind it;'s present location and used as a water tank, fed by a water race for the Crabbe household (dwelling #48).|
