The history of Kimberley dates back to the summer of 1891with the discovery of Galena at the North Star Mine, which is now the location of the popular Kimberley Alpine Resort.  In 1892 four prospectors, E.C. Smith, John Cleaver, Pat Sullivan and Walter Burchette discovered a high-grade out crop of minerals to the west of the North Star Mine that became known as the famous Sullivan Mine.  Pat Sullivan, after whom the mine was named, never lived to see the great riches that the mine had to offer as he was killed in a mining accident in Idaho in 1896.
