Abstract

Morstone Station is situated approximately 50 miles north-east of Camooweal, on the Camooweal 4-mile sheet, North-west Queensland. The owners of the property, Western Grazing Co. Pty. Ltd., have experienced difficulties in obtaining underground water on part of their property for many years, and have asked for this report because the Bureau's 'Camooweal Party' has spent a considerable time during the present field season (1953) completing the mapping of the Camooweal sheet. A number of geologists have contributed to the mapping of the area, notably Dr. F.W. Whitehouse, but the more detailed mapping and investigation are largely the work of Dr. A.A. Opik, Senior Palaeontologist, Bureau of Mineral Resources, who is at present expending the work of previous field seasons. A number of bores were sited for the Company by K.A. Townley, Bureau of Mineral Resources during a short visit in 1951. Three of his proposed sites correspond reasonably closely to our sites A, B and C. Recent investigations, in which the writers have shared, throw some new light on problems of underground water supply on Morstone property, but as the work is still in progress the present report deals only with the specific problems on which the Company's representatives have requested urgent advice.
