3329 1872 General notes.

It appears that maybe in August, a miner by the name of Jacob Johnson discovered an outsrop of antimony on a flat spur at the head of Shingly Gully, on Antimony Saddle head of Pipeclay Gully, Carrick Range. It is unclear what prospecting or mining was done in this area at the time. Small veins of antimony were also discovered on the western slope of Mt Difficulty.
