Stubbs, R.C., 1962. Scott River geophysical survey for bog iron, Western Australia 1961. Record  1962/030. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

A ground magnetic survey was made by the Bureau of Mineral Resources at the Scott River iron deposit during February and March 1961.Ten traverses totalling 34,000 ft were surveyed. The profiles obtained were those of a typical near-surface magnetic deposit, with high positive and negative values which alternated rapidly. Considerable flattening out of the profiles at the ends of the lines probably coincides with the boundary of magnetic ore; this may also be the boundary of economic ore. Owing to the lack of geological information it is not yet possible to attempt any quantitative correlation between the magnetic intensity and the grade or thickness of the ore. Until such information is forthcoming it is not recommended that further geophysical work be done in the area.
