Abstract

Since we contributed a notice of the remarkable
" limurite" rock occurring on the property of the Colebrook
Prospecting Association, N.E. Dundas, and more
recently discovered to extend in a more or less broken
sequence as far north as the Southern bank of the Pieman
River, mining operations have been carried on there
continuously, and have invested the occurrence with
additional interest from that point of view. Renewed
examination of the rock under the microscope, as well as
in the field, has resulted in further conclusions along the
line of our previous enquiries, and these we now submit.
