Abstract

The Ashford Caves are situated on M.L. 1, Parish of MacIntyre, County of Arrawatta, approximately 12 miles north-westerly from Ashford and 47 miles from rail at Inverell. Claims have been made that there are large reserves of both guano and phosphate rock in these caves. It has been claimed in the Press that 1,200,000 tons of guano are available. The caves were visited on 17.6.43 by the writers in company with the Commonwealth Parliamentary Joint Committee on Rural Industries. The writers' conclusions regarding the guano and phosphate rock deposits are summarised herein.
