Stein brick found in Yilgarn, Western Australia.

Found by Craig Powell at Mount Palmer, Yilgarn, Western Australia.

Craig states:- There was an entire town at Mount Palmer but the hotel ruins are all that’s left. The brick was from a house site across from the hotel with several broken ones looking like a fireplace.
Houses were mostly tin miners shacks around the goldfields then with tin chimneys that could easily be pulled down and rebuilt elsewhere.
Any fire bricks would have been recycled from the mine, the nearby Marvel Loch state battery or Yellowdine pumping station as Mount Palmer is on a track between the two.

(State Batteries in Western Australia were government owned and run ore-crushing facilities for the gold mining industry).
