Beach sands investigation: report on the area between the allotment frontages and DC 22 from Peerless Avenue to Seashell Avenue, North Burleigh, Queensland
Authors / CoAuthors
The eastern boundary of the area (the western boundary of D.C. 22) from Peerless Avenue to Ocean Street, was bored in August, 1947. The remainder of the area was bored in April, 1948. Bore-holes were put down to water level, using post-hole digger. Samples were dried and weighed and their volumes determined. The samples were then concentrated by panning, and the weights and volumes of the concentrates were determined. The percentage composition of a composite sample of concentrates from each bore line was determined by grain counting. The data collected and the findings of the investigation, including estimates of the quantities and grades of heavy mineral concentrates, the quantities of overburden and the quantities of each of the heavy minerals, are tabulated in this report.
