Abstract

For a time during the war it appeared that there would be an acute shortage of piezo-electric quartz in Australia. Accordingly it was necessary to investigate all known deposits and reported occurrences of quartz, with a view to seeing whether further or new development was possible. This work was the responsibility of the Controller of Minerals Production, Mr. J. Malcolm Newman, who placed the investigation in the hands of North Broken Hill Limited. A considerable part of the bulletin deals with the Kingsgate area, New South Wales, from which noteworthy quantities of quartz crystals have been obtained and which is still considered to be the most promising area for crystal in Australia. Mr. Garretty's conclusions about this field should prove of general interest and the presentation of his results will provide a basis for future prospecting.
