Ivanac, J.F., Traves, D.M. & King, D., 1952. Report on alluvial gold deposits of Mastuj and Chitral Rivers in Chitral State, Pakistan. Record  1952/002. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The presence of alluvial gold in the river gravels of Mastuj and Chitral has been known for many years, and local inhabitants have realised the value of the gold and have worked the deposits. Tipper (1923), Coulson (1937), Ikramuddin Ali (1951) and Tayyab Ali (1951), have reported on the placers but no accurate determinations have been made of their size or grade. In August, 1951, the Australian Geological Party, J.F. Ivanac, D.M. Traves, and D. King, examined the deposits between Mastuj and Drosh, with the objects of reporting on the size and nature of the placers, and if warranted, to suggest suitable sites for testing. This report gives an account of the examination and its results.
