Abstract

On the 5th February, Mr. A. A. McLeod, General Superintendent of King Island Scheelite, N.L., telegraphed that it was desired to obtain further information about the ore structure to the north-east of cross-section line 13, and suggested the drilling of two diamond drill holes. Three possible sites and holes were discussed. In response to a request from Mr. McLeod, a visit was paid to the mine on the 26th and 27th ultimo, when returning from Mount Bischoff mine, Tasmania. The whole position regarding the above portion of the deposit and open cut were reconsidered, and problems regarding drilling further west on the northern side were also investigated. A short statement was prepared while at the mine which forms the basis of the remainder of this report.
