Primefact Number: 562    Edition: First edition    Released/reviewed: 01 Feb 2007

The gold deposits around Stuart Town occur in quartz reefs, in deep leads beneath basalt flows, and as alluvial deposits along many of the streams.

The host rocks for the quartz reefs are interbedded slates and siltstones of the Middle Devonian Cunningham Formation. Andesitic volcanics are locally abundant, particularly around Muckerwa Creek.

This Primefact contains a detailed history of mining in the Stuart Town area.
