Small deposit of Wolfram
Deposits of tungsten occur in association with quartz veins bearing wolfram are exposed in several disused costeans close to the granite-Ordovician contact, a larger vein up to 60 centimetres in width has been mined to a depth of 35 metres. Proved and probable ore reserve equivalent to approximately 18 tonnes is estimated to remain.
Regional. Largest and most easily accessible deposit of Wolfram in the Eastern Victoria Region.
|The small amount of remaining ore probably negates the reopening of the mining operation. However, if such works did occur it would be necessary to maintain public access to at least some of the older costeans.|
