Contemporary advertisements divided the film into the following chapters:
Arrival at the Diggings—Death of the brave wife, leaving an infant daughter—Twenty years afterwards—the infant grown up—in love with the young miner— Villain and adventuress—A ghastly plot—Robbed of his gold—A false accusation— Bush justice—You shalt not pass—Villainy exposed

Numerous films called The Miner's Daughter were made in the early years of the twentieth century, mostly in the United States: at least one was, like the Australian film The Luck of Roaring Camp, descended from a short work by American writer Bret Harte. There is no indication that this film is based on the Bret Harte story, and advertisements prominently note that it is 'Produced in Australia by Australians'.
