Abstract

An examination of the New Cobar-Chesney-New Occidental area in 1947 concluded that the discordant contact between slaty and sandy beds in the area was a feature of major importance in ore localisation. Accordingly, an investigation was conducted in the vicinity of Cobar to determine whether a relationship existed between discordant contact and ore formation in that area, and to commence a detailed geological map on a regional scale of the Cobar-Nymagee mineral belt. The general geology, character of the discordant contact, stratigraphy, and economic geology of the area are discussed in this report.
