Raggatt, H.G., Keast, A.J., Newman, J.M., Horsburgh, J. & Martin, M.J., 1941. Department of Supply and Development, Commonwealth Copper & Bauxite Committee fourth report: copper - Cloncurry field. Record  1941/004. Department of Supply and Development: Commonwealth Copper & Bauxite Committee, Canberra.

Abstract

The Committee has given consideration to the desire of the Government to put into production any property that can materially add to Australia's copper output within two years. As pointed out in another submission of even date, it seems probable that 5,000 tons of new copper p.a. can be obtained from a recently discovered ore body in the Mt. Isa Mines, production commencing in January, 1942, if the necessary capital loan is made as recommended. In addition, it seems likely that a worth while production could be obtained from other mines in the Cloncurry district. The principle potential sources of increased supply are Hampden Consols, Mt. Oxide and Trekelano, but many other smaller properties can also be looked to, provided some central treatment facilities are available.
