Sullivan, C.J. & Matheson, R.S., 1950. The Kuridala copper deposits, Cloncurry district, Queensland. Record  1950/053. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Mapping carried out at Kuridala by C.J. Sullivan and R.S. Matheson during the period June 17th-27th has shown that the ore deposits occur in a major fault (and associated lesser shears). The existence of the fault system is considered to have been proved, and it has been traced, with some interruptions over a distance of three miles. It may extend for many miles beyond the present limits of mapping. The geological information given appears to rule out a number of chances of occurrence at shallow depth, formerly considered likely, and thus is somewhat discouraging. However, the work does indicate that repetition deposits are likely to be present and opens up intriguing possibilities.
