Abstract

During the past three to five years small amounts of oxidized copper ore have been reported from various localities in the James Ranges to the west of Alice Springs. During a visit to Alice Springs in July of this year information on these deposits was obtained from the Resident Geologists, A.D.M. Bell, and it is considered that potentially they may be of considerable importance and Bell has been instructed to investigate them further. The deposits are briefly discussed in the monthly report by Bell dated 3rd July, 1953. In this report he states that the rocks to the west of Alice Springs, where limestones are developed only on a comparatively small scale, are not likely to contain ore deposits to the extent of those to the east of Alice Springs where extensive limestone deposits occur. This concept is discussed below. [A supplementary note is enclosed which describes an inspection of the area which was conducted in September 1953].
