Abstract

This report describes a geophysical survey made in May 1952 and August 1953 at the Silver Valley mine workings, near Inverell, N.S.W. From the workings there is evidence of mineralisation along a well-defined fissure and one ore shoot has already been partly developed. The survey was made in an attempt to locate other ore shoots of sufficient size to warrant mining operations. Self-potential, magnetic and electromagnetic methods were used in the survey. The self-potential method showed a well-defined anomaly on the eastern extension of the fissure, indicating that a small body of sulphides may exist there with its centre about 300 feet east of the known ore shoot. The magnetic and electromagnetic results showed no pronounced anomalies which could be correlated with any defined ore shoot. Recommendations are made as to how the self-potential anomaly could best be tested. These comprise sinking a shaft at the centre of the anomaly, extending an existing adit, or driving a new adit from a point nearer the anomaly.
