Smith, D.N., 1953. Preliminary report on diamond drilling at the Brodribb prospect, Northern Territory. Record  1953/143. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The Brodribb anomaly was first detected by the Bureau of Mineral Resources' aerial scintillometer survey over the Rum Jungle area in 1952. The prospect lies six miles due west of the 40 mile peg on the Stuart Highway and can be reached easily in the dry season by means of the Brodribb track. However, for several months during the wet season the track is quite impassable to heavy vehicles necessary to maintain drilling operations. Ground parties made a preliminary inspection of the area in September, 1952 and by the end of October a combined preliminary detailed geological and geophysical survey was completed (Frankovich, 1952). The results of the surveys and the consequent costeaning indicated that drilling should be carried out for a complete investigation.
