Abstract

Boring commenced in the Broadbeach area on an East-West line 500 feet south of the northern boundary of DC22. Subsequent boring was carried out along lines 1300 feet, 2100 feet, 2900 feet, 4500 feet, 6125 feet, 7740 feet, 9300 feet, and 10900 feet south of the northern boundary of DC22. The results of the beach sands investigation are presented here. Estimates of the tonnages of heavy-mineral concentrates, the average grades of the heavy-mineral bearing sands and the average thickness of overburden, are tabulated. The complete set of data, from which these figures have been calculated, is attached as an appendix to the report.
