Rowston, D.L., 1961. Ringarooma deep leads seismic refraction survey, Tasmania 1957. Record  1961/151. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

A seismic refraction survey was made by the Bureau of Mineral Resources in the Ringarooma district over four traverses chosen by Rio Tinto Australian Exploration Pty Ltd to test for the presence of buried channels in the bedrock, which may contain deep leads carrying cassiterite in economic amounts. The results gave no reliable indications of the presence of such channels, and it appears that geophysical methods are not likely to provide useful indications in this area. The Only possibility of using geophysical methods effectively to assist in prospecting the Ringarooma deep lead would be to make surveys as far to the south as possible.
