Abstract

During May, 1950, a sample of granitic material was obtained from a dump on the Sunnyside goldfield, and showing a few flakes of a green mineral similar in appearance to torbernite, was forwarded to the Department of Mines, Melbourne, by a miner working on that field. The Mines department tested the mineral and proved that it was uranium-bearing, and submitted a sample to the Bureau to test for radioactivity. After confirmation of the presence of radioactivity in the sample by laboratory tests, a brief visit was paid to the field by a party from the Geophysical Section. One day was spent for conducting tests on the field. The opportunity was taken of visiting the Maude and Yellow Girl mine, and testing ores and concentrates for radioactivity.
