Abstract

The Wallendbeen talc workings are situated just east of the Wallendbeen township and railway station in the parish of Wallendoon, County of Harden, New South Wales. The workings, which consist of innumerable pits and shafts, are distributed along a narrow belt of country, usually more than 200 feet wide and extending from approximately 2 miles north to 1/2 mile south of the railway. The main workings at present are at the southern end of the field and the two producing pits were inspected. An examination was also made of a shaft at the northern end of the field. The talc is second-grade material, occurring both massive and schistose and should be referred to as steatite or soapstone. This report provides an overview of the geology and workings of the deposits.
