Sturmfels, E.K., 1949. The Oakland - Coorabin coalfield. Record  1949/043. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Black coal of Permian age has been found near Oaklands and Coorabin in the Riverina District, New South Wales. The coal is low-grade compared with the bituminous coals of Permian age at Newcastle, but has significance due to its situation in the south-western part of New South Wales, near the Murrumbidgee and Murray irrigation areas, and not far from the Victorian border. This report has been compiled mainly from field observations and from the files of the Bureau. The report gives a broad overview of the situation of the field and aspects of geology. The discovery, development, and workings of the coalfield are described. The characteristics of the coalfield are discussed, including petrography, the quality of the coal, the presence of water, and the extent of the field. Extensive data on the shafts and bores are appended. Accompanying geological plans are included.
