Abstract

Oaklands is situated about 55 miles north-west of Albury and is about 35 miles from the Murray River. Boring and shaft sinking operations, the results of which are set out in the above reports [see record], have revealed a sequence of sands and clays overlying a coal seam. The maximum proved thickness of sediments is 559 feet, but bedrock has not been reached and the depth thereto is not known. The upper beds of sands and clays are probably Tertiary or younger; the coal seam itself is Permian, but the point of contact between these sediments, though so very different in age, is not known. Aspects concerning the coalfield are discussed in this report including proven coal resources, structure of the field, and economic considerations.
