Owen, H.B., 1953. Ferruginous manganese deposits, Teano Range, North-West Division, Western Australia. Record  1953/025. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Superficial deposits of ferruginous manganese ore occur on the southern end of the Teano Range, Peak Hill Goldfield, Western Australia at about 150 miles by road north-north-west from Meekatharra. During the course of an investigation of new manganese discoveries in north-west Western Australia by L.E. de la Hunty of the Geological Survey of W.A. and the writer, the opportunity was taken to inspect two groups of small deposits in the Teano Range. One group contains about 14,200 tons of ore which averages about 2 per cent manganese and 32 per cent iron, and the other group 4,000 tons of marginal grade containing about 46 per cent manganese and 3.5 per cent iron. The former group is not of marketable quality and the other is too small and too remote to be of commercial value.
