  • The principal deposit is situated in Portion 47, Parish of Kempfield, County of Georgiana, four miles west-northwest of Trunkey in a direct line and about seven miles by road, which is mostly fairly rough and hilly. The Sugarloaf deposit is 1.5 miles south of the main workings and other lesser occurrences are known in the area. The main deposits and the Sugarloaf area were examined on April 27th, 1943, in the company of Mr. F. Canavan of this Branch, and Mr. Henry, who works the main quarry on behalf of W.T. Harris. The accompanying plan, Plate 1, is the result of a compass, clinometer and tape survey. Plate 2, is a geological plan of the locality taken from a map prepared by H.G. Raggatt to accompany a report to the New South Wales Mines Department on the Trunkey-Tuena Goldfield.

  • Historical data concerning the operations and findings at the Coorabin coalfield between 1915 and 1937 has been compiled in this report.

  • The Wymah reefs are situated in fairly rugged mountainous country, between 1,500 and 2,000 feet above sea level, about 25 miles easterly from Albury. This report provides an account of the general and economic geology of the reefs. Prospects and recommendations are discussed.

  • This data is part of the series of maps that covers the whole of Australia at a scale of 1:250 000 (1cm on a map represents 2.5km on the ground) and comprises 513 maps. This is the largest scale at which published topographic maps cover the entire continent. Data is downloadable in various distribution formats.

  • The Coorabin coalfield bore and shaft sites are listed. A short description is given of each site.

  • Report on surveys made at Coorabin on 12th and 13th August, 1942. Locations of drill sites and bores, and R.L. values are listed.

  • The Chilcot mine orebody is a steeply dipping, well defined fissure zone of brecciated andesite, with chalcopyrite in shoots, averaging about 8 per cent copper. Other minerals are bornite, pyrite, hematite, magnetite, quartz and calcite. Pre-ore faults displace the lode channel and are associated with the mineralisation. The ore body is developed by two levels 160 feet in length at 104 and 178 feet depth, and ore is being extracted from a stope between the two levels northeast of the shaft. Water level is a little over 100 feet from the surface. The general pitch of the ore body is about 45 degrees to the northeast. Exploration is recommended of the probable northeast extension of the lode down the pitch, and geophysical investigation to attempt to locate further possible shoots of ore.
