Abstract

The air-borne scintillometer survey near Katherine during October, 1953, failed to cover a triangular area in the south-east corner of the Katherine sheet, as it was beyond the range of the Shoran beacons. The area is part of a Bureau of Mineral Resources reservation taken out to protect the ABC Prospect. Several trial flights were made over the area, however, in an attempt to detect the presence of any significant radiometric anomalies. During these flights, Geologist A.B. Clark acted as an observer to spot on photo-mosaics the positions at which anomalies might occur. A third order anomaly was recorded during a flight along Maude Creek at a point thought to be within 1 mile of the junction of Dorothy Creek and Maude Creek. A search was made later by D.E. Gardner with the object of finding the source of the anomaly and the results of this work are given below.
