Abstract

The Frazer radioactive prospect was located by the Geophysical Section of the Bureau of Mineral Resources during Airborne Scintillometer and magnetometer surveys carried out during 1952 in a Dakota, VH-BUR, over country surrounding Rum Jungle. Radiometric Investigations showed that the radioactivity is confined to the ferruginous surface rocks which may represent a lateritic deposit. To the east of the costean occur a few low ridges comprising a hematite quartz quartzite breccia and a white quartz breccia. The hematite quartz quartzite breccia appears to overlie the white siliceous breccia. The ferruginous breccia exhibits some radioactivity and this may explain the occurrence of the radioactive laterite. No radioactive mineral can be defined.
