Noakes, L.C., 1949. Geological notes on the supply of raw materials for cement manufacture at Port Moresby, Papua. Record  1949/010. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The Provisional Administration of the Territories of Papua and New Guineas is investigating the possibility of manufacturing portland cement in the vicinity of Moresby and the question of supply of raw materials in that area has been referred to the Bureau of Mineral Resources. No field investigations into the supply and distribution of these materials has yet been undertaken, and these preliminary notes have been compiled from geological data and observations made available from previous geological reports. The raw materials from which portland cement is produced are limestone clay or shale and a small quantity of iron oxide. The availability and suitability of rock materials for cement manufacture in the Port Moresby area are discussed at length in this report. The general geology of the area and the availability of other materials required for the manufacturing process are briefly described.
