Abstract

A plane table survey of the lode system at the abandoned Coronet Hills copper mine in the Northern Territory was carried out together with a theodolite survey of the accessible underground workings. There are several sulphide-bearing lodes in a fracture system on the south-western margin of an arched, north-west striking, anticlinorium. The core of the anticlinorium is occupied by chert beds which are conformably overlain by siltstone end greywacke. The lodes are mineralised with copper, lead, and arsenic minerals. Assays of samples from the dumps and underground workings show sporadic values for copper and lead and the ubiquitous presence of arsenic. The deposits appear to be too small to be of much economic interest. However if it is decided to investigate them further six drill holes have been sited to test the extension of three swells in the lodes below the old workings
