Abstract

This report contains an account of the open cut coal investigations in the Cessnock Muswellbrook region. The area herein reported on is of 1.29 square miles, in the Parish of Howick, County of Durham. Twenty-two bore holes were sunk all of which, totalling 2,749 ft., were cored throughout. The conclusions herein reported are the result of field teamwork by two groups of the Bureau of Mineral Resources. The Petroleum Technology Party was responsible for all basic data obtained from boring. The Geological Party was responsible for locating boreholes, topographic surveying and interpreting and recording results inferred from the basic data. In addition, draughting, map compilation, and petrological and palaeontological determinations were carried out.
