Balmain Coal Mine. The Birchgrove site was bought in 1895 for $15 000. Balmain Colliery produced coal from 1897 until 1931 and natural gas until 1945. It is the deepest coal mine ever to be sunk in Australia. It had poor working conditions and suffered several disastrous accidents. The property was sold in 1955 and the shafts filled in and sealed two years later.
