Abstract

Mount Hope, a small town in Central New South Wales, is south of and 101 miles by main road from Cobar, and 11 miles north of Matakana siding on the Sydney-Broken Hill railway line. The ores mined in the Mount Hope district have been mainly those of copper, the principal mines being the Mount Hope mine, close to the town, and the Great Central and Comet mines, three miles further south. At present, the only mine in production is the Mount Hope mine, where the leaching process is being used by the Caroline Copper Mines. At the request of North Broken Hill Ltd., geophysical surveys were carried out on two areas: the Mount Hope mine area, and the Comet Mine area. The field work was commenced in May, 1950, and occupied three months. This report gives an account of the geophysical surveys and their results.
