Abstract

The following notes accompany a plan of one of the areas tested at Moonta, namely, an area embracing sections of Elder's Main Lode and Elder's West lode between Warmington's and Taylor's shafts. The test surveys on which the plan and notes are based were made in March, 1942. The plan is intended to illustrate in a general way the nature of the potential gradient results of all the tests in the Moonta-Kadina area and it should not be accepted as a basis for assessing the value of the tests as a whole. A great number of tests were made embracing the use of potential gradient, electromagnetic, magnetic and self-potential methods, and the nature of the results varied considerably. Correlation between geophysical results and known geology was good in many cases, but indifferent in others. It will be appreciated therefore, that a decision to carry out routine surveys can only be based on a critical examination of the results as a whole.
