Most mineralisation occurs towards the south west side of the formation. This area consists mainly of ridges, small tablelands and scattered rounded hills separated by flat floored valleys. Based on information supplied by the Department of Mines and Energy, an assessment was made of prospectivity and existing mining infrastructure at each preliminary damsite. A summary of the appraisal is presented in Table 6.3. PINE CREEK REGION SURFACE WATER RESOURCES ASSESSMENT Page 11
