Abstract

Self-potential and magnetic surveys made in the vicinity of the Mount Cleveland Tin Mine, near Waratah, Tasmania, are described and discussed. The first survey, which is described in Part I of this report, was made in April and May, 1953, at the request of the Department of Mines, Tasmania. The object of the survey was to ascertain whether geophysical methods could detect the known area of mineralisation and, if so, whether any additional areas of mineralisation could be discovered. Results of the first survey show that the geophysical anomalies, particularly the self-potential ones, coincide with the old mine workings. The anomalies over Luck's and Hall's workings, however, cover larger areas than the actual mine workings, thus indicating that further sulphide mineralisation may exist beyond these old workings. Anomalies not related to the old workings appear in an area north-west of Deep Creek, between traverses O and R. Both self-potential and magnetic methods revealed anomalies along these traverses between 350.E and 650.E, where geological investigation has also shown mineralisation to exist. Based on the results of the first survey, the grid was extended and surveyed to the north-east and south-west in March and April, 1954. This second survey, which is described in Part 2 of the report, shows that the anomaly connected with Henry's workings does not extend to the north-east, but terminates sharply between traverses P and Q. Some additional anomalies were recorded in the north-eastern extension of the grid, but in the south-western extension there was no geophysical evidence of mineralisation. It is suggested that further mining exploration work should be concentrated mainly near the former mine workings and in the area to the north-west of Deep Creek, between traverses O and R. Some prospecting trenches should also be put down to test the minor anomalies in the north-eastern part of the area.
