Abstract

The Mont Murphy reefs occur in sedimentary rocks, which strike northwest and dip southwest at 45 degrees, about 31/44 mile north from an intrusive granite contact. The reefs, which strike north to northeast and dip steeply east, can be divided into three groups - the No. 1 reef, the No. 2 reef, and the Upper Mount Murphy group. Total positive plus probable ore on present mine exposures adds up to 1,132 tons, containing 18 tons tungstic oxide worth £9,900. Possible additional ore is about 2,500 tons with a tungstic oxide content of perhaps 41 tons. There is little prospect of capital invested being returned but the mine may pay operating costs if working expenses are kept to a minimum.
