Broken Hill's Weather Watch
Charles Rasp (founder of Broken Hill)
Hieronymus (Jerome) Salvator Lopez von Pereira, later known as Charles Rasp was born in Saxony, Germany in 1846. At the age of 7 Jerome's mother & father died and he was sent to live with relatives in France, where he received a good education. At the age of 23 in 1870 he became an officer in the royal saxon army - Franco-Prussian War. After the death of a close friend, Dr. Emanuel Rasp, Jerome disappeared from the war. In 1871 Jerome arrived in Melbourne, Australia where he took on his dead friends name Rasp.
Rasp worked as a station hand throughout Victoria eventually ending up at Mt Gipps station in the Barrier Ranges, where Mr George McCulloch employed him as a boundary rider.
In 1883 he pegged a claim on a hill with an unusual shape, with a syndicate of seven. In order to finance more work on the claim, the syndicate split their shares, it then became a syndicate of fourteen. The Broken Hill Proprietary Company was formed on 16th July 1885. The mine was the worlds largest silver, lead & zinc mine and BHP became a global mineral resource company.
Rasp married Agnes Maria Louise Klevesahl in 1886. With the money from his shares they lived a comfortable social life. Rasp died at the age of 60 from a heart attack, on 22 May 1907.
