The crest of Specimen Hill (circa 1968 - note the Holden EH utility in the background) between the east and west side workings showing a prospecting pit which was about one metre deep. The Cooney sisters are also shown here - Margaret Gerrand on the left, with a former owner of Specimen Hill, Mary Morton, on the right. All workings, including costeans, were backfilled around 1981. At that time, the wooden collar and timbering of at least one shaft had severely decayed causing a dangerous collapse of ground around the perimeter.
