Abstract

Tamborine Mountain lies about 35 miles south-south-east from Brisbane. Laterite occurs in the north-western portion of the mountain and in general occupies the more elevated areas. The bauxite deposits have been known for many years and have been exploited as a source of road metal and more recently for the manufacture of aluminium sulphate. The occurrences have been described briefly by Ball (1940), Curteis (1942), and Connah (1950). Mr. W.S. Curteis conducted testing operations by shaft-sinking on behalf of Messrs. Sulphates Limited. The results of this work have been made available to the writer by the Company and have been used herein. During June 1950 the writer accompanied Mr. T.H. Connah to Tamborine Mountain during a very short visit, and again examined the area in November. The geology of the area, bauxite, and bauxite reserves at Tamborine Mountain are described in this report.
