It is believed the family moved to Kalgoorlie in late 1894. On his arrival at Charters Towers, Queensland, he turned to mining and also became the proprietor of the Clubhouse Hotel before moving to Kalgoorlie in 1894 where he managed the French-owned company Pride of the Hills and Slug Hill Mines near Trafalgar.
