Abstract

Bores sunk at Cremorne in 1891 struck coal at approximately 2802 feet. A company was formed to work the coal, but was refused permission to operate at Cremorne. A site at Balmain was secured, and the Birthday Shaft was sunk to a depth of 2,937 feet between 1897 and 1902. This report provides an overview of the occurrence of natural gas and workings for the period 1897 to 1948. Gas yields, commercial production, leakage problems, and the use of testing to determine the behaviour of gas in the mine are the key subjects that are addressed in this report.
