Abstract

The following report concerns the geology and mineralization of two uranium prospects in the Gimbat - Snake Creek Area of the Northern Territory. One of these prospects, referred to as Sleisbeck, can be recognised as one of the most favourable yet discovered in the Northern Territory. The radioactivity occurs in a quartzite breccia outcropping over a length of 1.5 miles and with a width of as much as several hundred feet. Geiger counter readings of 2 - 100 times background, occur frequently along the entire length of the outcrop, visible mineralization being present at three separate localities. The state of this mineralization, its associations and the geological settings are favourable to the possible occurrence of uranium mineralization at depth. Recommendations are made for further work, and problems in regional geology are discussed. The writer considers the sections of this report designated "Mineralization" and "Conclusions" to be the most important for a knowledge of the actual uranium occurrences. The remaining information is mainly geological, and, while highly pertinent, may not be of urgent interest to readers with a limited amount of time.
