Abstract

This statement sets out the results of drilling by the Bureau within Swansea Sub-area N.S.W. (J.B.C. plan BG-4). The area investigated comprises approximately 115 acres, about 2 miles south of the township of Swansea in the parish of Wallarah, Country Northumberland. In the Swansea area 'test and define' core drilling by the Bureau has indicated coal reserves of approximately 302,000 tons within the physical limits required for open cut exploitation. This total is made up of more than 87,000 tons in the "Open Cut Block" and 215,000 tons in the "West Block". Proving is recommended for the open cut Block and for the West Block, except that in the latter area the obstruction which will be offered to open cutting by the presence of the P.M.G. cable should be considered before proving is undertaken.
