Abstract

Surveys and investigations associated with the search for uranium deposits were confined mainly to the Darwin-Katherine region of the Northern Territory. Other surveys included - (1) Aero scintillometer survey of part of the Radium Hill area for the South Australian Government; (2) Test flights and surveys with a scintillometer mounted in a helicopter. The results of the airborne surveys at Radium Hill were given to the South Australian Department of Mines in the form of anomalies marked on aerial photographs. It is understood that that Department is preparing and issuing a map showing the anomalies. The results of the tests with the helicopter have already been issued in a separate report entitled - "Records 1953 No. 106 - Radioactive Surveying from a Helicopter" by J. Daly. The remainder of this progress report will be devoted to the search in the Darwin-Katherine district.
