Mokoia gold dredge working on the Upper Buller river. The Buller River area, according to the Mines Reports, show that of in all six dredges and eight companies, whose returns were known, they had obtained from the Buller River 18,411 ounces of gold worth approx £71,207.  Since eight dredges were built and since all at one time or another worked at a loss it was apparent that gold dredging on the Buller River was not a profitable undertaking  (print by courtesy of Cobb ROBERTSON)
