Abstract

Seven areas of iron ore occurrences under investigation by Nevsam Mining Company Pty. Ltd. were examined by the writer. One area contains hematite rubble; three areas are thought to be gossanous lodes; one area contains iron as surface enrichments, banded iron formation, and magnetite schist; and two areas are thought to be surface enrichments, although one of these last two may be a sedimentary hematite deposit. Little exploratory work has been done except for part of the rubble occurrence, and it is not possible to give any estimates of tonnage or grade except for part of the rubble area, where there may be between 30,000 and 40,000 tons of ferruginous material per vertical foot. The depth is not known, but it is probably not much greater than ten feet. The rest of the rubble area, the three gossanous areas, and the possible sedimentary hematite deposit all warrant some exploratory work.
