that retains a relic of the past, an old gold stamper
for extracting ore. It lies rusting beside an abandoned hut.

Sunny Corner is a small village in the central west of New South Wales, Australia and former mining area located between Lithgow and Bathurst just north of the Great Western Highway (Route 32). At the 2006 census, Sunny Corner had a population of 626 people.
Sunny corner was never officially known as Sunny Corner until it was gazetted in 1885. In consequence the place was brought into existence by the development and success of the Sunny Corner Silver-mining Company’s mine, and therefore the people generally acquired the habit of calling the whole place, including the newly surveyed town, after the company’s property.
