Abstract

The Hundred of Waterhouse, the north-eastern portion of which has been mapped, extends southward from the Hundred of Goyder. Mapping was carried out on air photos at a scale of 4" = 1 mile, and the information was transferred to a mosaic at a scale of 2" = 1 mile. In the following notes are discussed the general geology of the area, the relationship between the formations mapped and the ore-bearing formations at Rum Jungle, the structural geology of the area, and a uranium prospect which was discovered in the course of the regional mapping. Some recommendations for future geological mapping and prospecting are appended.
