Originally built for hunting purposes in the early 1990s, from corrugated iron from a previous hut at the mine site. Machinery from the site was purchased by Richard Isley and some has now been moved to Bright township with some at Wandiligong. It included a 5 head battery and a 10 head version.

Amazingly, the hut survived the 2003 fires.
