Matheson, R.S., 1952. Notes on Plen's radioactive deposit at Toongi, South of Dubbo, New South Wales.. Record  1952/060. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

A brief geological examination of this deposit was made by the writer and D.N. Smith between 18th and 20th June, 1952. The deposit had been previously examined in 1951 by J. Daly of the Geophysical Section, Bureau of Mineral Resources, and by J.C. Lloyd of the N.S.W. Mines Department and the results of their investigation were available for reference. The radioactive area examined during the present investigation was an area of about 1/4 square mile of the volcanic flow in the north-eastern corner of portion 39. Samples of the quartz veinlets and of the volcanic rocks were collected, and tests carried out with the Laboratory Geiger counter in Canberra indicate that both are radioactive and that the radioactivity is slightly greater in the sample from the quartz veinlets.
