Abstract

A geological examination of the Renison Bell Tin Field was made in company with Mr. H.G.W. Keid, Field Geologist, Tasmanian department of Mines, during January and February, 1942. Workings, lode outcrops and the principal topographical features were mapped by plane table on a scale of 100 feet to an inch, and all accessible underground workings were plotted on a scale of 40 feet to an inch. Surface exposures were poor, owing to dense growth of bracken and other scrub and were largely confined to the vicinity of present or previous workings, tramlines, tracks, roads and railway lines. The history and production, geology, and economic geology of the field are outlined. The individual lodes are described in some detail. Methods of mineral exploration are discussed.
