A double kiln of the type employed by the Colonial Gold Company is evident 33 After roasting the ore may have been quenched to further facilitate crushing. It is possible that the large dam on Fighting Ground Creek supplied water by a flume or race. A race leading from the dam to the general area of the battery is marked on the I improvement survey Fig.

However, there is no physical evidence of such a system remaining on either the battery building or the roasting pits. If the ore was quenched it may have been done in whatever receptacles were used to carry the ore down the slope to the battery. These may have been handcarts, as at the North British Mine in Victoria, or some sort of gravity chute.

The next step was to feed the ore into a stamper or Californian battery for crushing. The historical and archaeological evidence confirms that the easternmost building was the battery house. The battery is on the valley floor about 20m below the roasting pits immediately next to Fighting Ground Creek, providing an area for tailings run-off and access to a ready supply of water drawn off from the dam further upstream.

This structure is divided into three main parts - a large rectangular room with a benched floor; a solid stone machinery platform; and a long, narrow room to the west of the other two, connected to a stone-lined flue that leads up the hill slope behind the battery for 35m.

Water from the dam was possibly transported to the battery in a wooden flume or race, and fed into the battery along with the ore. From the battery the crushed ore flowed Fig.

At Tambaroora, Evidence for the use of a beam engine includes a fly-wheel pit, this took the form of an earth embankment, extending from a crank-axle pit and crank supports, beam sockets, steam the rear of the kilns to the hillside. The roasted material was cylinder supports and roof supports, all of which were withdrawn through a small opening set into an alcove at the recognisable on top of the machinery platfonn in the battery bottom.

From this evidence the machine can be roasted ore would have dropped from the base of the kiln into reconstructed as an 'A' frame beam engine with columns a waiting trolley.
