Abstract

This geophysical survey was undertaken as part of a campaign by the N.S.W. Mines Department and the Commonwealth Bureau of Mineral Resources to explore the ore possibilities of the Cobar Mining Field. Tests, made in January 1947, on specimens of ore from the operating mines showed that some of the ore from the New Cobar and Chesney Mines exhibited appreciable magnetisation due to its pyrrhotite and possibly magnetite content. The survey was commenced in March, 1947 using the magnetic method only as a first method of attack. Watts Vertical Force Variometers Nos. 15887 and 16128 were used, the field work being carried out by the writers. The geology of the area, object of the survey, results, and recommendations for future drilling are discussed in this report. Two accompanying plans are included.
