Owen, H.B., 1943. Report on the salt resources of the Pink Lakes in the county of Weeah, Victoria. Record  1943/012. Department of Supply and Shipping: Mineral Resources Survey, Canberra.

Abstract

This report follows a preliminary report dated 9th September, 1942, and it is not proposed to recapitulate the matter contained therein, although some references to the preliminary report are necessary. The principal purpose of a second visit to the Lakes was to determine accurately the area of useful salt-bearing surface and the nature of the beds. Much evidence confirmatory of the views expressed earlier regarding the structure of the lake beds was noted. However, a plane-table survey revealed that the total extent occupied by recoverable salt is considerably less than a casual inspection would suggest and consists of the following areas, which are shown on the accompanying plan.
