Abstract

Two reports on the Costerfield Gold-Antimony veins have been published. Bulletin No. 50 of the Victorian Geological Survey, by H.S. Whitelaw gives an account of the lodes and workings and of the history of the mine. An excellent description of the reefs and the mineralisation by Dr. F.L. Stillwell appeared in the proceedings of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, New Series, No. 48, 1922. In view of the existence of these publications, repetition of the details of Costerfield history, workings and geological features is avoided as much as possible in this report, and they are merely summarised in order to present the essential facts concerning the mineralised system.
