The Ballarat Electorate enjoys a long history connected with mining and its four schools of mines at Creswick, Clunes, Daylesford and Ballarat.
Many talented members of their alumni enlisted during World War One and history proves these men came with significant levels of experience enabling them to deliver vital expertise to the Australian mining Corps.
On display at the Federation University Mount Helen Campus (Foyer of C Building) is a collection of photos and items relating to mining and tunnelling used at the Ballarat School of Mines in the early 1900s.
The Mining Mud & Medals project seeks to highlight the role of men with a connection to the Ballarat Electorate who served in Australian Army Tunnelling Companies during World War One.
