Abstract

Excluding a preliminary visit on September 22nd, four days, November 20th - 23rd was spent on the property. In company with Mr. F. Hanlon of the New South Wales Geological Survey, the surface in the vicinity of the lode outcrops was mapped by plane table on a scale of 100 feet to the inch, and the accessible underground workings mapped in detail and sampled. Cleaning out of the lower "F" Adit had begun at the time of examination, but at the time of writing is not yet complete. This will be mapped at a later date and the results of the examination will be added as an appendix to this report. In addition to the geological and contour map of the surface, plans submitted with this report include a longitudinal section on a scale of 100 feet to an inch, showing the generalised outline of the orebody and the relation between the various outcrops, a more detailed longitudinal section on a scale of 30 feet to an inch showing the distribution of ore values in the principal mineralised section, cross-sections through each of the two principal shafts, and plans of the A, B, and C levels (that of the F level to be prepared later) all on 30 feet to an inch. This report contains notes on the development, general geology, petrology, economic geology, and ore reserves of the Attunga mine.
