Abstract

The Waterhouse Uranium Prospect No. 1 is situated in a sequence of siltstone, quartzite and shales of Lower Proterozoic Age, occurring on the south east flank of the Rum Jungle domal structure. Detailed geological and radiometric surveying were done, and these show a small but significant radiometric high in the siltstone. Mineralization is indicated in the area by two zones of limonitic casts disseminated through favourable beds, one in the shale and the other in the siltstone in the vicinity of the anomaly. Weak copper mineralization is indicated in the north east sector of the area in silicified shale. Sampling was done for 100 feet over the area of greatest radioactivity. Further work by diamond drilling has been recommended to determine the effects of leaching, and as a guide to the interpretation of other anomalies of similar type in the area.
