Rosenhain, P.B. & Mumme, I.A., 1953. Geological report on Mt. Shoobridge uranium prospect, Northern Territory / P.B. Rosenhain. Preliminary geophysical report on Mount Shoobridge uranium prospect, Northern Territory / by I.A. Mumme. Record  1953/145. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The prospect is an existing cooper lease (M.L.69B) held by Messrs. J.W. Watson and K. Cooper who carried out some mining in the area in 1950. The area was first visited in 1953 by I.A. Mumme whose interest was aroused by the pre-existing copper prospects and the close proximity of the Shoobridge granite. Further examination was carried out by Mumme and the writer early in November, and detailed mapping was done on a scale of 100 feet to the inch by the writer and D.N. Smith. Radioactive rocks and the secondary uranium mineral torbernite were discovered at this prospect, which is a copper mine, on October 25th 1953 by I.A. Mumme. A survey plan of the mine shafts, pits and costeans and lines of mineralization was prepared by I.A. Mumme on the 5th and 6th of November so that a suitable base line could be chosen for magnetic and self-potential test traversing. Three magnetometer traverses were completed. P. Rosenhain visited the area on the 5th November and inspected the shafts, stopes and costeans and carried out geological mapping from the 16th November to the 19th November. Further magnetic and self-potential traversing and some reconnaissance radiometric field work was carried out during the two periods 16th November to 20th November, and 24th November to 28th November.
