Abstract

White's Deposit, which is the original discovery at Rum Jungle, and on which exploration has been mainly concentrated, has so far proved to be the most important deposit in the area. It is situated 2.23 miles on a true bearing of 28 degrees from Rum Jungle Railway Siding and lies on the northern bank of the Finniss River (East Branch) halfway between Brown's Deposit and Dyson's Find. Following upon the favourable results obtained from diamond drilling and shaft sinking in 1950 work was continued at the deposit during 1951 and 1952. The development work and exploration activities are not yet completed, but available evidence has suggested a control of mineralization, which it is hoped will be substantiated by future field work. Geological and assay plans and sections of the mine workings have been prepared on a scale of 20 feet to an inch from theodolite and tape surveys and surface geological plans on a scale of 40 feet to an inch have been produced by plane table and telescopic aledade surveys. A description of the deposit based on results obtained to the end of 1952 is given in the following pages.
