Abstract

The geophysical surveys reviewed in this report were part of an investigation carried out by the Commonwealth Government on behalf of the British Government. Deposits of uranium minerals occurring at several places in the Northern Flinders Ranges of South Australia, and centred about Mount Painter, were subjected to detailed geological examination followed by surface and underground prospecting by means of costeans, shafts, drives, etc. The geophysical work undertaken with the object of assisting the geological examination by measuring the radioactivity of rocks in situ and of hand specimens and assisting the prospecting work by making estimates of uranium content of mine samples. The geophysical surveys consisted of two main parts, namely, field surveys to locate and delineate areas of high radioactivity, and laboratory work to make approximate determinations of uranium content of mine samples by measuring the radiation from them. It is proposed to describe briefly the fundamental nature of radioactivity with specific reference to such features as have a particular bearing on the problems encountered in the field and assay work. In addition, it will be necessary to deal briefly with the geology of the various areas covered by the field work in so far as it effects the geophysical problems.
