Abstract

Bauxite deposits on Rosedale, Meadowbank and Riccarton Estates at Campbell Town were tested by shaft sinking and boring during November, and December 1946. Earlier than this the Tasmanian Mines Department has sunk a number of shafts on the deposits, mainly at widely spaced intervals. The work undertaken by the Aluminium Commission mainly consisted of testing between the shafts sunk by the Mines Department, so that the interval between the points tested was reduced to 200 feet or less. A few of the old shafts were cleaned out and re-sampled. The results of the tests at each estate are reported on.
