Abstract

A brief report on the occurrence of beryl on Yinnietharra Station, Western Australia was prepared following a visit to the locality in December 1948. That report referred to three deposits: 1) 0.25 to 0.5 mile N.25°W. from The Cairn; 2)0.25 mile S.60°E from the Mica King mine; 3) Rowe's mine, 2 miles southeast from Morrissey Hill. The report stated that 20 or 30 tons of detrital beryl in large pieces could be picked from the surface with ease. It was pointed out that by collecting small pieces and wider search the immediately available tonnage might be doubled. In June 1944, the first two of the above deposits were again visited, as was one on Bidgemia Station not seen on the previous occasion.
