Crespin, I., 1942. Interim report on Nelson Bore, Victoria. Record  1942/018A. Department of Supply and Development: Mineral Resources Survey, Canberra.

Abstract

The Nelson Bore, which is still in progress and is being drilled with the Commonwealth Rotary plant in collaboration with the Victorian Mines Department, has now reached the depth of 3746 feet, with no indication that the basement rock will soon be reached. Unfortunately no bore in Western Victoria or south-eastern South Australia has been drilled to bedrock, consequently no suggestion can be made as to the possible depth at which it will be met in the present bore. The deepest bore in the area to be palaeontologically examined is Knight's Dome, No. 2, Mt. Gambier, South Australia, which reached the depth of 2013 feet, drilling ceasing in carbonaceous sands.
