looks like the game has stalled... as the only person who's made a guess, Walk_fat boy_walk, maybe you can have first shot at posting a new photo.

Was it moroka?
Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful.

For the record everyone, it was Moroka and I'm sorry for leaving you high and dry. Butt it was worth it. Had a great time.

Time for a clue. Part of a much larger historic site near a "ghost" town.
Like the previous photo they refined something here, but it wasn't gold.
Well at least what they produced wasn't in a solid form.

At which location? There is more than one. I visited on an overnight walk from the previous guess.

We started from Newnes campground which is not far from those ruins, but this location is about 11 km and roughly a 4 hour walk away.

ACT. Either the peak on the horizon or the mountain we're descending.

Looking for some rock in keeping with the recent theme, I found this. If you squint hard enough you'll see a trig marker on the highest point. (The actual highest location is the lump on the right, not the left. My editing software wasn't working properly, so I could not make the required adjustment.) What is the name of this Victorian feature?
