Abstract

In December, 1950, the Pakistan Government filed a formal application to Australia, through the Technical Assistance to South-East Asia Co-operation Scheme, for three geologists to carry out geophysical surveys in Pakistan. In May 1951, the geologists, J.F. Ivanac and D.M. Traves of the Bureau of Mineral Resources and D. King of the South Australian Mines Department, arrived in Pakistan. Their instructions were to carry out a geological survey of a portion of the Gilgit Agency, and to discuss with the Director of the Pakistan Geological Survey or any other Government Officer familiar with the problem, the alluvial gold deposits of Chitral River and the lignite deposits of West Bengal and Sind. Field investigations commenced from Gilgit in June 1951, and the party spent four months in the region. This report gives an account of the visit and the results of the investigation.
