MINERS IN THE CLOUDS Scheelite Mining at Glenorchy
Julia Bradshaw

Commercial mining of scheelite began in 1885 and the industry boomed during World War One and continued until the 1980s. During World War Two the mines were of such strategic importance that they were taken over by the New Zealand Government. This is the illustrated history of that industry.
