General Note:
(Reference Abstract -- Abstract ) A review was made of available information on the Parish of Bungaree in order to supply advice on location of high yielding bores. Available information included the geological map of the Parishes of Dean and Bungaree (Krause 1890) the geological map of the Beaufort - Avoca. Deep lead (Hunter 1909) the 1 mile to 1 inch Ballarat geological map (Bell 1964), and the bore records of the Geological Survey. The bore information, including basalt thickness, parts per million of total dissolved salts and yields, was tabulated as in appendix 1. From the bore location sheets a map of bore locations was put together, the Parish of Bungaree lying across the join of the four sheets 826/7 827/7 836/7 837/7. Onto this base map was compiled the edge of the basement, the subsurface extent of granite under the basalt in Fig 1. In Fig. 2 from available topographic maps a contour plan was constructed and the approximate surface levels of the bores tabulated from this plan. In Fig. 3 an isopach map of the basalt was constructed/ In Fig. 4 contours of the total dissolved salts were drawn In Fig. 5 form the few bores which reached basement contour plan was prepared showing a basement ridge running east-west through the Parish. In Fig. 6 the yields of the bores in gallons (imperial) per hour were plotted and contoured. In Fig. 7 the standing water levels are plotted for those bores for which they are known.
