Gympie is a city and a region in Queensland Australia. It is about a hundred miles north of Brisbane. Gympie is noted for having one of the largest and most productive Gold mines on the continent. James Nash originally reported alluvial gold deposits in 1867. There are networks of underground two story high tunnels continually being mined for gold ore. In 1999, a foreman was taking his morning walk-a-bout through a new excavation tunnel when he happened upon a vertical seam of gold crystals imbedded in milk quartz. He halted the nearby mining operation and saved the seam from the crusher. This Gympie Gold Mine 25x18mm Oval Buff Top Cab weighs 20.83 carats.
