Noakes, L.C., 1945. Preliminary report on the examination of cores from the Pilot bore, Lakes Entrance, Victoria. Record  1945/024. Department of Supply and Shipping: Mineral Resources Survey, Canberra.

Abstract

The Pilot Bore is situated 130 feet north of the Lakes Entrance Shaft and 80 feet above mean tide level. The principal purpose of the bore was to provide information on the position and flow of aquifers and on the nature of the rock ahead of shaft sinking operations. Percussion drilling was used to ensure that information on water horizons should be as accurate as possible. This report summarises the information so far obtained from the Pilot Bore, Lakes Entrance, and should be regarded as an interim statement pending the completion of work on the cores. The task of correlating this information with that obtained from other sources and the discussion of its bearing on regional problems are reserved for a more detailed report when the work has been concluded.
