The Shotover Mine - William Cobley Reunion & Book Launch

The 12th of August marks the 150th Anniversary of the first gold strike in the Coromandel. Cobley, Hunt, White and Clarkson claimed a huge vertical vein of gold behind moss on a waterfall face. They called it the Shotover. Within three weeks two-thirds of Auckland left the city that was in the grips of the depression. Gold rush fever spread throughout the country and news reached overseas. People poured into the Coromandel to try their luck, which quickly led to the formation of Thames. William Cobley's direct descendants are gathering on that date to celebrate the occasion. William's great great granddaughter, Angela Curtis, is an avid historian and genealogist who has been working for 11 years on a trilogy that includes Thames and William Cobley's story. A book on William's journey and the Shotover Mine is due to be released on 12th August 2017. Also, Book 1 of the NZ History trilogy - "Ashmore - The True Story" is due to be released later this year. "The Shotover" - 150 Year Souvenir Book Launch will be at Carson's Book Shop, Pollen Street, Thames on Saturday 12th August.
