Chamberlain, N.G., 1951. Magnetic survey of alluvial gold deposits at Kuta, New Guinea. Record  1951/030. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

A magnetic survey of the Kunimo creek area near Kuta in the Central Highlands of New Guinea was carried out between July 17th and July 28th, 1950. It was hoped that the survey would trace the course of the auriferous wash originally laid down in the bed of a former creek but now concealed by overburden of soil and unconsolidated volcanic ash. This report gives an account of the magnetic survey and its results.
