Abstract

Brown's Deposit is the westernmost known area of mineralization in the Rum Jungle area. It is situated approximately two miles northeast of Rum Jungle Railway Siding and one mile southwest of White's Deposit in an area known as Brown's Workings, which was worked for copper in the early part of the century. In June 1950, preliminary geophysical investigations revealed that a radiometric anomaly was present at the eastern end of the old copper workings, and in October 1940, a self-potential survey (Allen 1950) indicated the presence of two distinct bodies of sulphide mineralization. During 1950 a geological map of the area on a scale of 100 feet to an inch was prepared, and in 1951 mapping of the area on a scale of 40 feet and 20 feet to an inch was commenced. This work at present remains unfinished due to other commitments. Three diamond drill holes, part of an extensive programme of diamond drilling planned for the area were drilled towards the end of 1951.
