Abstract

The prospect covers an area originally enclosing three first order and one second order anomaly located by the Airborne Scintillometer Survey if 1952. Preliminary ground investigation was carried out in October 1952 and is contained in 'Preliminary Report on Airborne Scintillometer Surveys by N.H. Fisher and J. Sleiss'. Carborne equipment was first used to locate the anomalies and determine their extent in July, 1953. An Auster aircraft carrying a Halross scintillometer also flew over the area at the same time locating a high only near the first zone. This was carried out by the Territory Enterprise Limited. A survey grid was laid down to serve both the geological and geophysical work. The base line runs north-south for 3,300 feet and traverse lines run across it at 100 ft. intervals. The detailed radioactive survey covered the whole area. Traverse lines were read at 300 foot intervals in the outer sections where closer work was not warranted. The work commenced in August and was completed in October 1953.
