Abstract

The Golden Peaks open-cut gold mine, 3 miles from Wau has produced to date, 165,224 tons of ore for a return of 44,497.98 ounces of fine gold. Reserves (June 1961): 2 45, 000 tons at 0.17 ounces per ton. Altered and oxidized Namie Breccia with stringers of broken and randomly oriented manganiferous material comprises the orebody. At present no entirely satisfactory answer as to the origin of the orebody can be advanced but three possibilities are; Mineralization after oxidation, Selective Mineralization and the Slip Hypothesis. It is suggested in conclusion that the area on the western bank of Andersons Creek to the south-east of the present workings be drilled.
