Ward, H.J., 1949. A geological reconnaissance of the country between Mt Hagan and Mongureba, Central Highlands district, Mandated Territory of New Guinea. Record  1949/079. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

This investigation was undertaken primarily to assess the importance of a discovery of gold in the tributaries of the Porgera River west of Mt. Hagen, Mandated Territory of New Guinea. Two patrols were carried out. The first patrol was from Wabag to Mongureba. The purpose of the patrol was to inspect the main gold find in the vicinity of Mongureba. The occurrence of alluvial gold was also reported from the River Timen area, and consequently a patrol from Wabag to Mt. Hagen Police Post by way of the River Timen was undertaken. This report gives an account of the geological reconnaissance and its findings. The physiography, geology, geomorphology, and economic geology of the area are described. Accompanying maps and photographs are included.
