Interesting card. Is there major significance to the brickwork? If not, it seems odd to put it in the centre like that?

It seems a little odd that Walkerville North is south of Walkerville, less so that Walkerville South is the furthest south.

No, sorry if I confused.

SOTE is correct, and we are east of both Greenwich and Switzerland.

How about Western Australia?
Not Australia, but that's the closest so far.

Not you, though!
PNG is correct

Now, where does the card say it is?
It was once the biggest producer of gold in PNG.

The dredgers were flown in one piece at a time and assembled on site - there were eight of them, and each one weighed 1,100 tons.
Needless to say, once the gold was exhausted, they were NOT flown out again!
