Smith, W.C., 1950. Merton's clay deposit, Parish of Queanbeyan. Record  1950/051. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

During an inspection of limestone deposits at White Rocks on 2/11/50, samples of weathered granite were collected from a quarry on the eastern side of the Queanbeyan-Cooma road, about 150 yards south of the two-mile peg. This quarry is in the Queanbeyan Clay Deposit described by W.G. Woolnough in departmental reports dated 17/2/28 and 20/6/28. If the rock can be economically crushed and worked, it may be suitable for the production of sewer-pipes and other impervious ware. The samples, reserves, and suitable uses for the granite are described in this report.
