Abstract

The first geological reconnaissance of the proposed diversion of the Snowy River to the Murray Valley was undertaken in late 1946. This work was followed by more detailed work in the summer of 1947-8 when field parties carried out a reconnaissance of a strip of country covering the approximate route which the main tunnel is expected to follow. Part I of this report deals briefly with the geological work accomplished during the two field seasons and provides a summary of the engineering geology of the main and subsidiary tunnel lines. Parts II and III consist of the geological reports by the leaders of the two field parties. Part II covers the survey area from Waste Point to the Geehi River. Part III covers the survey area from the Geehi River to Khancoban. Accompanying plans are included.
