Abstract

The Ella Creek Prospect was a first order anomaly discovered by the Bureau of Mineral Resources airborne scintillometer survey in 1952. After a detailed examination by geologists and geophysicists, accompanied by intensive costeaning it was considered promising enough to warrant drilling. The three holes drilled were probed radio-metrically and high counts ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 per minute were obtained. No primary uranium mineralisation was encountered, and it is suggested that the source of the radioactivity, on chemical testing, may prove to be thorium.
