Kermode, L.O. 1973 Geological report, proposed Huntly power station. Lower Hutt: New Zealand Geological Survey. New Zealand Geological Survey report EG 149 20 p.

Abstract: Purpose: To give a geological appraisal of a proposed power station site beside the Waikato River immediately north of Huntly West. This report is based on two brief visits to the site, discussions with Mr L. Oborn, and a knowledge of both the Huntly district and its geological and mining literature. Drill cores were not logged because deterioration of the retained cores no longer permitted a true assessment to be made of the in situ properties of the soil recovered. An alternative site is suggested for consideration, and an appendix on coal resources is included.
