Biography/History

In 1861 Mitford claimed to be the original discoverer of the area described as Claim 1039. That area was known to hold rich copper deposits, and pre-existing claims to the area were soon asserted by other parties in court. The confusion was compounded by alleged surveying inconsistencies at the Survey Office. The claim was ultimately awarded in 1861 to Sir Walter Watson Hughes of Bald Hill who went on to form the Moonta Mining Company. Mitford continued to petitioned this award until 1869. This item appears to be one of three maps forming part of that petition [see other maps are nos. 16 & 18 and from the dates on these maps they were probably produced between 1866-1869].
