Ivanac, J.F., 1952. Geological report on Peko gold mine, Tennant Creek goldfield, Northern Territory. Record  1952/020. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

A geological survey of the Peko Gold Mine was conducted as part of the field activities of the Bureau of Mineral Resources in 1950. The objects of the survey were to study the factors localizing the ore, to suggest possibilities for the discovery of new oreshoots, and to plan a diamond drilling campaign to test these possibilities. J.F. Ivanac and B.P. Walpole mapped the geology of the mine. The plane table survey of the surface outcrops was carried out by E.M. Bennet. The results of the survey are presented in this report. History and production, general geology, economic geology, and the prospects of further discovery are discussed.
