Abstract

The Fitzroy Basin in this bulletin refers to that part of the Canning Basin which lies between the Precambrian of the Kimberley Plateau in the north and the Fenton Fault in the south; the bulletin also considers some formations cropping out south of the Fenton Fault. The Canning Basin is the area of Palaeozoic and Mesozoic rocks bounded by the Precambrian of the Kimberley Plateau on the north, and the Pilbara area in the south, and Extending westward on to the continental shelf. Downwarps within the Canning Basin may warrant separate names; the first to be named is the Fitzroy Basin.
