Inverell map sheet 1:250000 is one of the most extensively mineralised regions in the New England area. Significant mineral commodities include casseterite, gold, base-metals, wolframite, diamonds and sapphires with minor deposits of fluorite, bauxite, clays, manganese oxide/rhodonite, chromite, limestone. The report presents results of the Inverell 1:250000 scale Metallogenic mapping involving the assessment of the mineral resources of the New England Fold Belt in New South Wales. The results are presented in three parts: (1) Metallogenic Map, displaying all recorded mineral occurrences in the context of the revised geological framework, (2) Metallogenic Study, including a summary of the regional geological setting and a description of the deposit types and finally (3) Mineral Deposit Data Sheets, including explanatory notes, a comprehensive deposit index and lists of unpublished reports and other references used in compiling the data sheets.
