Chin Mine

Mount Darwin District


Originally the Chin Reef, Chin Mine began producing in 1906 and was one of the earliest gold mines in the Mount Darwin District.

After sitting idle for a number of years, between 1919-1920 the mine was re-opened. A new road was laid and water pipes laid from a spring in Mount Darwin to provide drinking water.
