Rodger, T.H., 1952. New South Wales open cut coal programme, Newcastle region, Swansea South area: drilling results. Record  1952/074. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

A total of 16 rotary cored bores were sunk by the Bureau in Portions 14, 15, 16 and 17, Parish of Wallarah, Northumberland County, 5 miles south of Swansea. Approximately 1,100 ft. of "Test and Define" drilling proved a possible maximum of 960,000 tons of coal, or a minimum of 750,000 tons in the Wallarah Seam under an average overburden coal ratio 5:1. The overburden is mainly conglomerate. The geology of the area and mining are discussed in this report. The results of drilling are detailed in the accompanying plates, stratigraphic logs, and descriptive bore logs of the Swansea South area.
