Abstract

The testing programme described herein is the result of a recommendation made in a previous report. Twenty-four boreholes were put down during October, 1944, to determine the extent and quality of the bentonite and associated clays. During the early part of the boring campaign the area was surveyed in detail by plane-table with the assistance of the Queensland Geological Survey. The details and results of boring, origin of the bentonite, micro-fossil content, testing, and reserves are discussed in this report. Logs of Boreholes, a plan of the bentonite deposit, and cross section diagrams are included in the report.
