Abstract

The occurrence of molybdenite deposits near Yetholme has been known for many years. The most important deposits are close to the eastern boundary of Ph. Yetholme, Co. Roxburgh. The deposits have been worked in a small way for molybdenite at several places, have been examined by several geologists, and have been investigated by two of the major mining companies. The result of this work has shown that although considerable tonnages are available, the molybdenite content is too low to make mining attractive. It is not proposed to describe the geology, mining excavations, and other factors affecting the field in this report since that has already been done in several previous reports. It is the purpose of this report, however, to point out that the Yetholme deposits contain a considerable amount of scheelite and may well warrant large scale mining for this now important ore of tungsten.
