Abstract

The Dundurrabin copper prospect is 3.5 miles northwest of Dundurrabin sawmill and settlement, and 5 miles from Lyringham, which is connected by road to Grafton, Armidale and Dorrigo. The mine is favourably situated with regard to supplies of water and timber. Development consists of an adit to the lode with a cross-cut through it (Plate I), connected to a shaft from the surface on the south wall of the lode. The shaft has been sunk 30 feet below the adit with another cross-cut at that level through the formation. A few pits and costeans have been put down along the strike. Geology, prospects, and recommendations for further work are discussed.
