Lindsay Pit

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The now disused Lindsay Pit open cut gold mine on the north side of Coolgardie was named for G.S.Lindsay, brother-in-law of explorer David Lindsay. Upon hearing of the gold rush, Lindsay travelled from South Australia to Coolgardie with three Afghan Cameliers and 50 camels, selling them on arrival for a profit. He then turned to prospecting, discovering gold at the old Lindsay Pit.
