Thursday 11 June 1857, The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser

SPRING MOUNT.

Some time ago we mentioned that gold had been procured in fair quantities at Spring Mount, at a place usually called Puddledock, about twelve or fourteen miles north-north-east of Armidale. We have now to call public attention again to the probability of a paying gold field existing at Puddledock, having been lately favoured with information from gentlemen of undoubted veracity that excellent prospects continue to be obtained by even desultory prospectors in the above locality.
