Abstract

The Waterhouse uranium Prospect No. 4 is located 3.5 miles south of Batchelor siding on the North Australian Railway line, and was discovered by aerial scintillometer survey. A ground examination recommended radiometric gridding of the area. The Prospect is in lateritised rocks and is a broad area of twice the radiometric background count. Within this area are small local zones, rising to four times background, associated with quartz veins. The future of the Prospect is not encouraging.
