CALLION, (aka Speakmans Find) Western Australia
CALLION, is an abandoned town located in the Goldfields-Esperance region in Western Australia. It is found between Coolgardie and Leomora.
Gold was initially discovered here in 1895 and was locally known as Speakman's Find after the prospector who made the original discovery. Speakman's lease (along with Cooke and Lukin) was 30 acres in size and contained three reefs. The town was gazetted in 1897. The name of the town is thought to come from another prospector who had operated in te area.
One of the first mines established in the area was the Lady Sate Mine which was operatng in 1899. A 20 head battery was erected in the town in 1897 and continued to operate until at least  1902.
A cemetery is all that is left of the old townsite which is now part of Credo Station
