A correspondent on an email mining history list has enquired :

"A colleague is cataloguing historic mining machinery collected by a museum on a Queensland gold field. In the collection are several items of tramway rolling stock, including side-tipping carts of the kind used in cyanide plants. These have their undercarriage marked "Stockton M Co" or "Stockton M C". They would have been used at some time in the period 1880s - 1930s. Can anyone shed any light on the likely manufacturer?

My interest is partly altruistic, he's after help, but from a more selfish perspective I wouldn't mind knowing this myself (being an adopted Queenslander these days). I've drawn a complete blank with Google.

Any ideas anyone ? TIA
