Wells, A.T., 1961. Explanatory notes on the Cornish 4-mile geological Sheet, SF5201. Record  1961/087. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

A geological reconnaissance of the area was made by the Bureau of Mineral Resources in 1955, and gravity readings were taken by a geologist of West Australian Petroleum Pty Ltd, who accompanied the party. Astrofixes were taken by the Western Australian Lands and Survey Department in the same year. In 1956 surveyors from the Department of the Interior observed astrofixes and instrument-levelled heights along the Canning Stock Route as far south as Well 48. In 1957, as part of the Bureau of Mineral Resources helicopter survey of the Canning Basin, gravity observations were made in the south western sector of the Cornish Sheet.
