AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Although 'Henry' Lasseter died in 1931, taking with him the secret of his purported 'reef' of gold, rumours of him having staged his death persisted. Clune's interest was so piqued that he eagerly accepted an invitation to join a prospecting party to the region where Lasseter had worked. Clune meets several locals, including Koorin-Jaminny, a 'Luritcha' Aboriginal man whose tribe had nursed Lasseter through his last days and buried him, and Bob Buck, the Station owner who searched for Lasseter, learned of his fate from the Luritcha people, and recovered his few personal effects.

Notes

  • Clune cites Lasseter's first names as 'Henry Lewis Bell'.
