Abstract

On the recommendation contained in a preliminary report issued by the Bureau of Mineral Resources in 1952, a magnetic survey was made of several deposits of magnetite in the parishes of Puggoon and Tallawang, near Gulgong, N.S.W. The magnetic results are compared with test results from the quarry at the nearby Tallawang deposit and it is shown that the small deposits studied are not likely to be of sufficient interest to the present lease-holders. Attention is directed to the Tallawang deposit where it is possible that further development of the known ore-bodies, will expose additional reserves of magnetite. A detailed magnetic survey of the area is recommended.
