Abstract

The Chilcot copper mine is situated 15 miles south-south-west from Orange, from which it may be reached by reasonably good road. It was examined during 1942 by Dr. N.H. Fisher, Chief Geologist, Mineral Resources Survey, who recommended that a geophysical survey be made to search for additional ore shoots along the lode channel (1942/020). The geophysical survey was made during the three weeks ending 19th December. Operations were commenced over the area north-east of the mine, extending a distance of 550 feet from the mine, thus covering the part favoured by Dr. Fisher for extension of the lode channel. Later the survey was extended a similar distance to the south-west and the north-eastern part was extended a further 150 feet. Methods used comprised geomagnetic, spontaneous, polarisation, electro-magnetic and potential ratio. Traverses were placed at 50 feet intervals and observations by the various methods were made at intervals of 25 feet and, in some parts, at closer intervals. The results of this survey are discussed herein.
