Ward, H.J., 1949. Notes on the occurrence of lateritic soil at Sogeri, Papua. Record  1949/045. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

As a results of representations made to the Bureau of Mineral Resources by the Australian Aluminium Production Commission during 1948 a brief examination was made in July, 1949, of the area known as Sogeri Plateau which is situated some 24 miles east-north-east of Port Moresby. The object of the inspection was to determine whether any bauxitic laterite was present on the plateau and if so to obtain samples for chemical determination of alumina soluble in caustic soda solution, that is, alumina extractable by the Bayer process. Three car traverses of the area were made - one along the Sogeri-Uberi road, one along the Sogeri-Subitana road and one along the Sogeri-Eilogo road. Two grab samples were collected and sent for analysis. The findings of the examination of the area and the results of the chemical analyses are described in this report.
