Abstract

Geophysical surveys of the magnetite deposits of Australian Magnetite Pty. Ltd. at Gulgong were made by the Bureau in 1952 and 1953, and revealed that the Tallawang deposit was the most important one. The present report gives the results of a detailed magnetic survey which was made over this deposit in August, 1953. Results show that three concentrations of very strongly magnetic material exist within the Tallawang deposit. The southern concentration is unlikely to contain considerable reserves beyond those in sight. The central concentration has been partly worked and could yield reserves of ore from the west wall of the quarry. The northern concentration, which has not been worked, could yield limited reserves. It is shown that the deposit, as a whole, pitches northwards. Some exploratory drilling is recommended on each of the three concentrations.
