Gardner, D.E. & Dimmick, T.D., 1948. Beach sands investigation: report on a deposit, 3 miles north-north-west from Lennox Head, New South Wales. Record  1948/076. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The deposits of heavy-mineral sands which are at present being exploited along the East Coast occur on or within a few hundred feet of the ocean beaches. The occurrence of this deposit at a distance of nearly 1.5 miles from the beach suggests the possibility that other deposits may be found at some distance from the coast line. Of incidental interest is the possibility that the deposit, which presumably was formed by wave or surf action, may be at slightly higher level than the deposits adjacent to present day beaches. The locality, examination process, origin, and nature of the deposits are discussed in this report. The results, including estimates of the quantities of heavy mineral concentrates and the grades of the mineral bearing sands, are tabulated here.
