    The discovery of Ularring by Speakman and Ryan ante dates the discovery of Coolgardie by Bayley and Ford by nearly a year. Speakman reported to Warden Finnerty, whose headquarters were then at Southern Cross, early in October, 1891, that he had discovered payable gold at Ularring, about 150 miles north of Southern Cross. . .
    The principal mine there was the Mulwarrie, which consisted of a lease of 24 acres. Up to the end of 1900 this mine had produced 3524 oz. of gold from 1211 tons. Other shows of note were the Mulwarrie East, Mulwarrie North, Mulwarrie South, Mulwarrie Main Reef Extended the Flora and the Mona, whilst three miles to the south-west were a further three leases- the Oakley, the Mavis and the Oakley South.These properties were owned and managed by Mr. W. F. Connell, and 1790 oz. of smelted gold were won from 568 tons of quartz, all of which had to be carted to the public battery at Mulline, 17 miles away. . .
