Abstract

The Sapphire-Moresby King property is situated just south of the Port Moresby-Rouna Falls Road, 17 miles east-south-east of Port Moresby, near the junction of Sapphire Creek and the Laloki River. The Laloki Mine lies about 2 miles south of the main road, to which it is connected by road, on a branch of Sapphire Creek known as Simson Creek. The position of the other orebodies in the area, Dubuna, Mt. Diamond, Elvina, Hector etc., are shown on the general geological plan, Plate F.1. [General geology, economic geology, and recommendations for further work are discussed.]
