Daly, J., Dyson, D.F. & Pearce, J.W., 1951. Report on radiometric investigations at Carcoar, New South Wales. Record  1951/047. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Attention has been directed to the cobalt workings at Carcoar as a possible source of radioactive minerals in two ways. During testing of museum specimens for radioactivity, it was found that cobalt ore from Carcoar was strongly radioactive. Also, the occurrence of uranium in the cobalt ores was reported by Mr. McKillop, formerly a land holder in the area, who submitted a copy of a report signed by Professor T.H. Laby, certifying the presence of uranium in samples examined by him, and at a later date, a sample containing an uranium mineral. A brief visit was paid to the area in 1948, and the presence of strong radioactivity on dumps was confirmed. A more extensive survey of the area was, therefore, undertaken by geophysicists during 1949-50 and 1950-51. This report gives an account of the geophysical operations carried out in the vicinity of the Carcoar cobalt workings and describes the results of these investigations.
