Abstract

This report deals with geological and geophysical investigations of the George Creek Uranium Prospect, which is 80 miles by road south of Darwin, N.T. The rocks, sandstone and siltstone, which form part of the east limb of a large north-plunging syncline, belong to the George Creek Formation of Lower Proterozoic Age. The radioactive anomaly within the 3-times-background contour covers an area of 4 acres. Torbernite is found in weak shears, joints, and bedding-plane fractures at the surface. Torbernite and uranite have been intersected by diamond drill holes. The uranium mineral intersected is below ore grade. Two more diamond drill holes have been recommended; on to test for primary uranium mineral vertically below the most highly mineralised outcrop, the other to test for an extension of uranium mineral below alluvium south-west of the most highly mineralised outcrop.
