Keunecke, O., 1951. Geophysical survey of the Spencers Creek area, New South Wales. Record  1951/051. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The geophysical survey described in this report was undertaken at the request of the Snowy Mountains Authority for the purpose of investigating possible sites for the proposed Spencer's Creek dam. The area surveyed is about two miles above the junction of Spencer's Creek with the Snowy River, about six miles east of the summit of Mt. Kosciuszko, and at an average elevation of about 5,700 feet above sea level. The specific information sought by the survey comprised the following: depth and nature of the bedrock, contours of the bedrock surface, nature of the overburden, and in particular, variations in physical properties occurring either horizontally or vertically. The seismic refraction method was used in the survey. This report gives an account of the geophysical survey and its results.
