| Weeber Hill (Woodhall)
Weeber Hill showings are located south of the Marlie Hill School. Two showings located at Grid Reference
50014168 and 50074165 can be reached by third class road from Marlie Hill for about 1 mile (1.6 km) and
then by trails leading toward the Guava Gully.
Geochemical and self-potential surveys cover part of Weeber Hill and the ground immediately to the
southeast. The anomalous areas delineated (see Fig. 11) were covered by a detailed geochemical survey.
Geology and Economic Indicators
Deep weathering has affected the rocks at Weeber Hill which are purple coloured volcanic breccias and
sandstones. Much fracturing is evident in the area; the fractures are commonly lined with calcite (personal
The Weeber Hill copper showings comprise well defined zones of malachite which are apparently derived
from primary copper minerals contained in abundant quartz stringers. Bornite is present in some samples but
most sulphides have been oxidised (Bergey, 1958b). The mineralization is found in altered or highly
weathered dykes, in zones where steeply dipping structures cut relatively gently dipping sedimentary rocks
Three showings were sampled (Bergey, 1958d) with the following results:
18.0 feet (5.5 m) 2.2% Cu
3.0 feet (0.9 m) 21.2% Cu
metal. Geochemical surveys in the Weeber Hill area indicated several scattered anomalies elongated in
a general northwest - southeast direction. No significant self-potential anomaly was defined.

Based on previous work to the west (Connors and Bull Snap) it believed that the main Ginger Ridge
Stock was emplased at depth from the southeast and the later apophysis occur as "spikes" above
this. The continuity of the potassic alteration in the Bull Snap Zone suggests that it is the root of a
Therefore the systems further to the southeast would represent higher levels of the later intrusives
and a stronger chance of preserving the mineralized system.
The wide spread Ba soil anomaly with its associated Pb, Zn, Mg and Mn anomalies at Weebar could
represent the roof of a significant deposit. By examining the high grade, dyke related Cu showings in
this area and vectoring in on where these dykes coalesce, the source of this mineralization may be
A similar scenario exists at the Kola zone, except that being 80 metres below the Weebar zone,
erosion has exposed a large Cu soil anomaly and mineralized outcrops. The extensive geochemical
zoning evident at Kola makes this zone an attractive target.
