TOWN SUFFERS FROM MINE CLOSURE

The Dungog Chronicle.

March 15, 1927.

Almost ever since the war, 1914, the Alum Mountain in Bullahdelah has been worked in a half-hearted sort of sometimes half-handed, other times only a couple of men on the job, but seldom ever has it been worked at its full capacity.

Recently, the works have closed down altogether, and at present no one is employed except the manager.

The workmen have all gone to other parts in search of work, with a consequence that the town is suffering.

It is a great pity that this company does not work this mountain of alum as it should be worked, because in no other part of the world is there such a rich deposit of the mineral.
