Abstract

The area was bored and sampled in May, 1948. Bores were put down to water level, using a post-hole digger. When the sand brought up from the boreholes appeared to contain appreciable quantities of heavy minerals, it was sampled by quartering. Sample weights, volumes, and dry concentrates were determined. Percentage composition of concentrates was determined by grain counting. The 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. Data collected in the course of the investigation has been tabulated and is appended. Accompanying locality and section plans have been included.
