Fisher, N.H., 1945. Monazite in beach sand concentrates, Queensland and New South Wales. Record  1945/002. Department of Supply and Shipping: Mineral Resources Survey, Canberra.

Abstract

An earlier reconnaissance survey indicated that monazite is the only likely source of thorium in Australia and further, that the beach sands on the eastern coast for approximately 170 miles on either side of the Queensland-New South Wales border contain by far the largest reserves of monazite. For this reason a special investigation of these sands was conducted. An inspection was made during September, 1944, of the beach sand deposits and of the various plants engaged in the production of concentrates from the sands. Samples were taken, where necessary, to supplement the known information about the composition of the sands and of the different mill products, mainly with a view to ascertaining the distribution and disposal of monazite in the concentrates. The production procedures, disposal practices, and total production of monazite are discussed in this report. An accompanying locality map is included.
