Abstract

The presence of bauxite in the Territory was first reported in 1908. This supposed bauxite occurrence at Mounts Roe and Bedwell at the head of Port Essington was examined and sampled by the writer in June, 1949 with negative results. Subsequent to the visit to Port Essington, many specimens of lateritic material from the northern portion of the Territory have been received. Some were collected from inland localities and others from various points on the Arnhem Land coast and adjacent islands. These samples were submitted for visual examination and preliminary testing. The results of these tests, together with the interpretations and conclusions that have been drawn with regard to the search for bauxite, are summarised in this report.
