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.
