Abstract

Britain proclaimed a Protectorate over Papua in 1884 and in 1888 annexed it as a Crown Colony. In 1895, gold was discovered, and mining accounted for the overwhelming proportion of mineral activity prior to the First World War. The fields were an extension of the Queensland fields, and there was often an exchange of miners between the two colonies
