Abstract

The Cow Flat Area was visited on the 12th March, 1947, with the object of ascertaining possible dolomite reserves. This information was required in connection with the application by Metropolitan Lime and Cement Company Ltd., owners of a dolomite quarry at Wall's Siding, near Mudgee, for financial assistance from the Commonwealth Government. It was desired to ascertain whether, in the event of the latter company ceasing production, the Cow Flat deposit could provide sufficient dolomite to supply New South Wales requirements. The situation, production, geology, origin and reserves of the dolomite deposits are discussed in this report. The report should be considered supplementary to Report No. 1946/005 and the Report on Limestone and Dolomite Deposits at Cow Flat and Wall's Siding (1947/090).
