Townley, K.A., 1953. Ravensthorpe manganese deposits. Record  1953/096. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The Copper Mine Creek deposit is the only manganese deposit worthy of attention in the Ravensthorpe area. It is a bedded deposit enriched by supergene water, and has an estimated tonnage of 6,000 tons per vertical foot. The ore is in a number of beds interspersed with an approximate equal footage of decomposed schist. Two shafts indicate ore down to 40 feet, and it is thought that it may continue well below that level.
