    • Darkey Flat Goldfields are located 18 miles N.W. of Warwick.

      This became known as the Talgai Goldfield and covers an area of 77 square miles. Both alluvial and reef mining methods were worked here. The richest alluvial gold was found in Dunn's Gully and at Gum Flat just west of Pratten. The alluvium is rich but patchy, and varies in depth from two to twenty feet. Many coarse gold nuggets were found up to sixteen ounces, the largest of which was fifty-five ounces found by Mr. H. Gibson in 1895. Many reef mines were worked in this general area and were found to be rich in gold. However, this goldfield was abandoned due to other goldfields being opened up around this time. There is still gold there as it was never worked properly.
