Comments

Comment (Geology): THE CERUSSITE IS GRAY AND GRANULAR (SAND CARBONATE); SPHALERITE AND TENNANTITE WERE IDENTIFIED THROUGH THE MICROSCOPE (NOLAN, 1935, P. 166)

Comment (Workings): EXTENSIVE ADITS, DRIFTS, AND CROSSCUTS, MOST OF WHICH ARE INACCESSIBLE.

Comment (Development): THE PAGE TUNNEL, RECORDED ON THE ELEPHANT KNOLL SE MAP, WAS DRIVEN TO INTERSECT THE OREBODIES ON THE CONSOLIDATED CLAIM.
