Abstract

In continuation of the short paper read, last year on the works then in operation at Cascades, Hobart, and at Tarleton, I now lay before the Society the records of boring with the diamond drills, together with a few remarks on the results. I have, on several occasions, pointed out the extreme improbability of the discovery of coal in either locality, but there were many who held a different opinion, and it was well that the question should be set at rest. -- Part one of this article is at http://eprints.utas.edu.au/15590
