The 1860s Gold Rush. Unknowingly, Rees and Von Tunzelmann had settled in the heart of what was to become Otago's biggest goldfield. It was Rees' farmhands who found the first gold in the area. The initial discovery was made by Jack Tewa in 1862 by the Arrow River, where an 'X' still marks this spot today.
