Gold was Norseman’s original claim to fame when prospector Laurie Sinclair and his horse Norseman passed through only 20km north of the original Dundas townsite. When his horse went lame, Sinclair discovered that the piece of rock lodged in Norseman’s hoof was gold-bearing. Excited by his lucky find, he continued prospecting resulting in a major find that sparked a gold rush and established a town named after his trusty horse. Gold has been mined ever since.
