Gardner, D.E., 1953. Prospecting activities Edith River area: progress report for period 31st August to 3rd Spetember, 1953. Record  1953/118. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Sediments of the Brock's Creek Group and of the Phillips Creek Formation, and volcanics of the Edith River Formation were prospected with carborne radiometric equipment. A comparatively high background count was recorded in the Edith River Volcanics, but no significant radiometric anomaly was found. A geological party prospected ten shear zones south east of the Edith Siding, including a cupriferous one, and a strongly fractured belt near the granite contact. No radiometric anomaly was found. Future prospecting should be directed towards major faults within the sediments.
