- The West Coast Miner
It was originally funded by community arts funding from the Australian Commonwealth Government, and was housed at the Adult Education Office in Queenstown. Jim Nicholls and Jo Beams were the instigators of the project. The
Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company, and Renison Limited supported the newspaper by distributing it to employees.
It was succeeded by "The Westerner" produced by "The Mercury" newspaper, which ran in various forms from 1979-1995.
Following this the "Western Herald" became the main west coast newspaper.
It was one of many newspapers that have existed for relatively short times on the west coast, due to a range of issues.
