Keunecke, O., 1953. Geophysical investigation of the copper-nickel deposits, North Dundas field, near Zeehan, Tasmania. Record  1953/082. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

In response to applications by the Tasmanian Department of Mines and the interested company, Eagle Metal and Industrial Products Pty. Ltd., Tasmania, a geophysical investigation, including self-potential, electromagnetic and magnetic surveys, has been made over the copper-nickel deposits of the North Dundas Field, situated about 5 miles north-east of Zeehan, Tasmania. The nickel ore occurs in the foot-wall of north-striking ultrabasic dykes. The ore shoots already worked had proved very rich but quite small. Important results were obtained in the Cuni North Area only. Conductive indications which appear to be due to mineralization extend over a length of 800 to 1000 feet. The line of mineralization is intersected by cross faults. Drilling targets for five short diamond drillholes are given. Further exploration should be confined mainly to this area. The geophysical results indicate that mineralization farther south is limited in extent and perhaps of no economic interest.
