Kitten (also known as Kitty) was born at Halls Creek c. 1942, on the site of the old gold mine. She recalls seeing the alluvial gold glinting as the sun rose in the morning time. There was a big mob of people all digging with crowbars. My father worked there he was from Gordon Downs Station. Before we were at Halls Creek, my father was a stockman at Nicholson and lots of other stations in the area. He taught all those young boys like Jock Mosquito how to ride and handle horses. One time he drove Camel Trains for a while he said it took three weeks for a really short trip from Lake Gregory way to Balgo with those camels.
