Abstract

The presence of quartz crystals in one of the dumps of an old gold mine, known as Black Charlie's mine, in the Strathbogie Ranges led to the re-opening of part of the workings in the search for crystal suitable for piezo-electrical applications. To date the search has met with success, and has resulted in the recovery of crystals from the old workings and the discovery of a second crystal deposit nearby. The mine, now named the Crystal King mine, was visited by the writer on 9th December, 1944, and again on 22nd January, 1945. The general geology, economic geology, and production capabilities of the deposits are discussed in this report.
