Abstract

The presence of quartz crystals in the dump of an old gold mine, known as Black Charlie's mine, in the Strathbogie Ranges led to the reopening of part of the workings in the search for crystal suitable for piezo-electric applications. To date the search has met with success, and has resulted in the discovery of a second crystal deposit adjacent to the old workings. The mine which is now named the Crystal King mine was visited in December, 1944. The locality, topography, geology, economic geology, and production of the mine are discussed in this report. A sketch section of the mine is included.
