Abstract

Between December, 1960 and February, 1961, two diamond drill holes, DDH.2 and DDH.4. each 250 feet in length, were put down on Waterhouse No.2 Uranium Prospect to test two electromagnetic anomalies (A and B). DDH.2, in the centre of the prospect, tested anomaly A It passed through shale and siltstone to 168 feet and then entered and remained in hematitic quartz-breccia. Sheared graphitic shale with numerous sulphide veinlets (forming about 2% of the rock), between 103 feet and 150 feet, apparently causes this major electromagnetic anomaly. DDH.4 tested the northern anomaly B. It passed through shale and siltstone to 112feet and then entered and remained in amphibolite. Minor pyrite and chalcopyrite (less than 2%) in the siltstone between 60 and 112 feet are probably the cause of this minor electromagnetic anomaly.Maximum radioactivity logged was 0.05 mR/Hr (0.08% U3O8 ) between 10.5 feet and 105.5 feet in DDH.2.
