A small lithographic print from a larger watercolour. Chillagoe is a region of limestone karsts, with fascinating underground caves and deposits of multicoloured marble. In the past, copper was mined here, and the acid from the fumes of the smelters bleached the karst near the town. This painting was done at the end of the dry season in late October, before the storms came.
The following Chillagoe painting was done after the storms had revived the land.
