    Background: IN THE NORTH OF NEW SOUTH WALES, THERE'S BEEN A BIG REVIVAL OF INTEREST IN THE SEARCH FOR SAPPHIRES. OLD MINES ARE OPEN AGAIN AND MEN ARE WORKING THEM. IT TAKES A GOOD TEAM TO GET THE BEST RESULTS.

    THERE ARE STILL PLENTY OF SAPPHIRES IN THE AREA AND THESE MEN HOPE TO GET A GOOD RETURN.

    TO MAKE A LIVING OUT OF THE SAPPHIRES, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE PROPER EQUIPMENT. BUT SOME OF THESE MEN ARE WILLING TO TRY THEIR HAND AT PROSPECTING - THE PRIMITIVE WAY...THIS GROUP IS OUT ALMOST EVERY WEEKEND HOPING FOR A LUCKY STRIKE, AND THE YOUNGEST PROSPECTOR IS OFTEN THE MOST ENTHUSIASTIC.

    THIS GROUP HAS NOT BEEN PROSPECTING FOR LONG , BUT IT HAS ALREADY HAD A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF SUCCESS.

    SOME EXPERTS BELIEVE THAT THE LOCAL SAPPHIRE HAS THE BEST COLOUR IN THE WORLD. IT'S CERTAINLY A GOOD EXPORT EARNER FOR AUSTRALIA.
