Abstract

The Brodribb deposit, located 13 miles north of the Rum Jungle mine was located by an aerial scintillometer survey in September 1952. A ground examination revealed an order of radioactivity sufficient to warrant geological and radiometric surveys. A total of 1026 feet of costeaning was bulldozed. The increase of radioactivity with little depth and the satisfactory sample values justify exploratory drilling and possibly underground development, which will be started in 1953. The information available to date places the Brodribb deposit in an entirely different geological category from that of the Rum Jungle deposit. Even if the Brodribb deposit proves to be only of very low grade uranium, an entirely new and extensive province for uranium exploration will be opened.
