Technical Report WRD93053 Viewed at 20:02:19 on 17/02/2010 Page 6 of 12. 3. RESULTS Bore RN 28738 was drilled to 55. 7m through mixed siltstones and greywackes displaying weak metamorphism and quartz infilling. Approximately 1.5L/s water inflow was encountered from a fracture zone between 50 and 52m. The bore was constructed with stainless steel screens from 50.0m to 52.0m. Water quality results from samples taken at the conclusion of bore testing are included in Table 1. The bores yielded water of low salinity (TDS l12mg/L) within potable limits (AWRC/NHMRC, 1987) with the exception of iron, which was analysed at 2.2mg/L, 1.9mg/L above the recommended value. Iron concentrations of this level are not considered a direct health risk, but may cause laundry staining or a slightly unpalatable odour or taste. Appropriate treatments are available should this become a problem.
