Wolfram Hill Mine, Berridale, NSW (8 October 2014)

I inspected and mapped the mine area in the early 1970s. The hill consists of slightly greisenised granite with several east-west striking quartz reefs which were prospected for tungsten in the period 1891 to 1894. Government geologist J E Carne reported on the location in 1907. There appears to be little or no production of any tungsten ore, wolframite, which is sparsely distributed in the quartz reefs.
