Abstract

Rumbalara is a small siding on the Adelaide-Alice Springs railway line. It is about 120 miles by rail and 143 miles by road south of Alice Springs. The mine is 35 miles by road northeast of the siding. The object of the visit was to determine, if possible, the extent of the deposits and to decide whether they are likely to be able to supply the requirements of the Australian paint industry, particularly during the present war. The period 29th July to 2nd August, 1943, was spent in the field. During this time a plane table survey was made of the deposit and its environs. The underground workings were surveyed by chain and compass. Half a day was also spent at the field on the 18th January, 1944, in collecting specimens and making a brief inspection of new workings.
