Abstract

The aim of this Bulletin is to provide a reference volume outlining Australia's mineral resources. As far as possible, all known deposits of actual or potential economic importance, and deposits or fields from which production has been recorded in the past, are listed, and a brief description is given of the geology of the more important, including many which are no longer productive. The 55 chapters of this volume are in the form of summarized studies of individual minerals or groups of minerals. The treatment is necessarily brief but the reader who wishes to know more of any particular aspect of the subject will find, in the comprehensive list of references, a guide to detailed published descriptions. Production of the volume has been a co-operative effort. The work of the Bureau's team which assembled and wrote the chapters has been supplemented by data and comments received from the Mines Departments of the States and Territories. As a result this compilation represents a combined Commonwealth and State contribution to the propagation of information on the extent and variety of Australia's mineral resources. It is hoped that it will help to stimulate further mineral exploration in this country.
