Konecki, M.C., 1953. Report on the western flank of the Muswellbrook anticline. Record  1953/133. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

This report deals with the results of 22,355 ft. of scout boring over an area of approximately 50 square miles on the western flank of the Muswellbrook (N.S.W.) Anticline. A traverse of overlapping bore-holes, located between the outcrops of the Upper Marine Series (Mulbring Beds) in the east and of the Triassic sediments in the west; provided a more complete section of the Upper Coal Measures in this area than has been previously available. Some 46 coal seams were encountered and tentatively numbered for correlation. Some of the coal seams exhibit very good qualities, but none could be classed as a good gas or coking coal. Igneous intrusions are numerous and of a fairly wide vertical and areal extent; their influence on the associated coal seams is generally destructive. The results of the above boring may be regarded as a basis, for any detailed future underground and/or open-cut mining investigations. No attempt was made to estimate coal reserves of any kind.
