For The development of the 'selective flotation' process during the early twentieth century, particularly at Broken Hill, brought new hope for development of the ore bodies at Captains Flat.

LRRSA publications are the results of years of research, based on field investigations; interviews; and study of written material, including official documents.

In short, it is a thoroughly researched and well-written history that will provide readers with an enhanced understanding of the working conditions and challenges of the mine and its role in sustaining the community.

Ross Mainwaring's book covers the history of Captains Flat and its mines through to 1939 in some detail, but his primary focus is on the operation of the Lake George Mine from 1939 through to its closure in 1963.

Using company records at the Noel Butlin Archives of Business & Labour at the Australian National University and extensive newspaper research, Ross has drawn together a fascinating history of the company, the men who mined and transported the ore, and the community of Captains Flat during these years.

He also carried out extensive field research, and as a result the book contains detailed maps, showing the tramway routes, the bridges, earthworks, and zig-zags.

The country was mountainous, and although the tramways were well engineered, they were steeply graded and sharply curved.

To work them three steam locomotives, Slippery Sam, Soward, and Daddy Long Legs, were used.
