Abstract

The "Trough" area extends parallel to and 200 to 300 feet west of the eastern beach from approximately 4800 feet north of the zero-line shown on the locality plan, to 6000 feet south of the zero line. A previous report (Record 1948/067) has given an estimate of the quantities of heavy mineral occurring from 2100 feet north to 1100 feet north. The following report deals with the remaining areas. The area was sampled during 8th and 9th September, 1948. Where the heavy minerals were at or close to the surface, samples were obtained from shovel holes. Where the mineral was at some depth below the surface, the samples were obtained from bores put down with a post-hole digger. Estimates of the quantities and grades of heavy mineral concentrates, the quantities of overburden, and the quantities of each of the heavy minerals are tabulated in this report. The data sets from which these estimates are derived are appended.
