This year marks 100 years since the closure of the Moonta Mines which was in its heyday considered to be the financial “backbone” of South Australia.
National Trust of South Australia are working in partnership with the Regional Council of Goyder and the Copper Coast Council to advance the world heritage nomination of the Australian Cornish Mining Sites of Burra and Moonta.
As one of the key sites under the National Trust of South Australia’s care, substantial conservation efforts are underway to preserve the remaining mining structures, thanks to funding from the Federal Government.
However, there remains an urgent need for additional conservation work to safeguard this unique heritage site.
National Trust of South Australia are launching their “Friends of Moonta Mines Conservation Appeal” and seek your invaluable support.
Please consider contributing to help conserve this historic site for the benefit of future generations. Donations exceeding $2.00 are tax deductible and a receipt will be promptly provided to you.
