Hannan's Reward (1993)

100cm x 140cm    39” x 55”

Paddy Hannan's discovery of gold in what is now the town of Kalgoorlie,

Western Australia, sparked a rush that has still not ended. 

The site of his original reward claim has long since disappeaared

into the open cut mine known as the Super Pit that runs north-south

for several kilometres just east of the town.  We stood on the edge of

the pit in 1993 and marvelled.
