2956 Komata reef to Waitekauri

Sunday 15th August 2021

An exploration of an old gold mining area in the Coromandel hills to the north of Paeroa. Gold was discovered here in 1891. We walk up the Komata valley on an old track, clamber up tailings and get to see mine shafts, a tunnel, a well-preserved boiler and other mining gear. Return is along an old tramway formation, up a ridge through the bush and then down to the valley again. About 4 hrs walking plus time to explore.
