Bushtick Mine was a gold mining operation established in the 1920s and operative through early 1950s in Matabeleland in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).. It was established by the British South Africa Company..The mine was a substantial producer of gold and, initially, thought to be part of a significant deposit of the precious metal in the area.. This did not prove to be the case and after the mine was closed its facilities were to become the basis of Falcon College, a higher education level school for boys aged 12-18..The school is based on a house system that is divided into 6 Houses.. During the bush war, a girls' house was included as a security measure during that period for girls of teachers and those from the local area..It is located 12 kilometers from Esigodini (old Essexvale). Frederick Courtney Selous, the noted scout, hunter, conservationist and adventurer, had his farm nearby..The foundations of the house can be viewed on google earth...

Macte nova virtue, puer; sic itur ad astra...'ve got 6 more bullets in my gun..You see, in this world there's 2 kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig..I thought 3 was the perfect number..You chose your way, I chose mine..Oh I almost forgot..Here, this is for you..While I'm waiting for the Lord to remember me...
