A new day dawned for Day Dawn WA, following a rich strike at Mountain View. A group of Italian prospectors at Day Dawn in the 1940s, down to their uppers, defying the advice of experts, persevered for four years before they finally struck it rich.

During 1945-47 they worked in conditions that would not be tolerated today and brought to the surface 4,845 tonnes of 5.25oz/ ton ore, valued at GBP273,300. (today's value $42,000,000).

Their bonanza supported the old saying; 'Gold is where you find it'. Their workings were only a matter of metres from where the Great Fingall Mine, a quarter of a century earlier, had abandoned its search.
