Crohn, P.W., 1961. Preliminary report on iron ore deposits near Maude Creek and Francis Creek, Burrundie area, Northern Territory. Record  1961/108. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Reconnaissance surveys have shown that an area of approximately eight miles by four miles in the vicinity of Maude and Francis Creeks, near Burrundie, Northern Territory, contains six groups of major ironstone deposits. The deposits crop out discontinuously over a length of about 15 miles in a favourable bed of the Lower Proterozoic Masson Formation. The total length of ironstone outcrop is about 15,000 feet, the width ranges from 30 to 80 feet, and the minimum depth is estimated to range from 100 feet to 200 feet. Until assay results are available, the highest grade of ironstone is visually estimated at about 60 percent. One of the largest deposits has an ironstone potential of 10,000 tons per vertical foot.
