Chatto Creek Dredge in a new (final) resting place
And the signage is up! Thanks to Rex Johnson for researching the text for the signage and helping to erect along with Mike Floate, Ken Laraman and Terry Davis.
The last parts of the old Chatto Creek Dredge were ‘delivered’ to the Chatto Creek Hotel thanks to the great efforts of Central Excavation and Johnny Simonds along with his sons and members of the Otago Goldfields Heritage Trust.
Thanks very much to Rex Johnson for the image above and complete video of ‘the moving’ below.
Many thanks also to the efforts of the Central Otago Dredge Trust for getting it out of the river! (2005)
