Abstract

The Stairway Sandstone was studied in the field in 1962 and 1963 during the reconnaissance geological mapping of the Amadeus Basin. In 1964 rather more detailed work was carried out: sections were measured and cross-bedding determined throughout the Amadeus Basin, and the phosphorites were examined in some detail because of their possible economic significance. In 1965 and 1966 surface and subsurface material was studied in detail to determine the provenance, environment of deposition, and palaeography of the formation. This work was done partly in the laboratories of the Bureau of Mineral Resources, and partly in the Department of Geology of the Australian National University, Canberra (under the sponsorship of the Bureau of Mineral Resources).
