Dallwitz, W.B., 1952. Mineralogy of tungsten ores from Rye Park, N.S.W.. Record  1952/090. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

An enquiry has come from the Melbourne University Ore-Dressing Laboratory concerning the mineralogy of ores from Nos. 1 and 2 orebodies at Rye Park. Mr. K. S. Blaskett, Principal Research Officer at the Laboratory, has done treatment tests on ore from the No. 1 orebody, but is uncertain as to whether the sample investigated is typical of the ore as a whole. Sullivan and Dallwitz (1952) suggested that scheelite is more abundant than wolfram in the ore, but Mr. Blaskett found that the principal tungsten mineral is wolfram; evidence for this was obtained during ore treatment tests, and was confirmed by mineragraphic work. According to the geological report, fluorite is stated to be abundant, but very little fluorite was found in the ore treated in the Laboratory. As the bulk of the ore at Rye Park is in the No. 2 orebody, the question has arisen whether this ore is appreciably different from the sample tested. Differences in mineral association, grain-size, etc., may be very important in ore treatment. The following report describes in a general way what is known at present about the minerals and problems in which Mr. Blaskett is interested.
