Abstract

A heavy-mineral survey of the Forsayth 1:100 000 Sheet area, north-east Queensland, is described. The suitability of the technique for detecting gold, tin, and probably uranium mineralisation in the region has been established. The heavy-mineral method is also useful in the interpretation of sieved-sample surveys, and can provide valuable input to geological and metamorphic mapping programs.
