Abstract

The Granites-Tanami region is an area of mainly Precambrian rocks largely covered by superficial Cainozoic sediments in the northwest of central Australia. It lies between the mainly Precambrian Kimberley region (Kimberley Basin and Halls Creek Province) and Victoria River Basin to the northwest and north respectively, and the Arunta Block to the south and southeast, and is flanked by Phanerozoic rocks of the Canning Basin to the west and the Wiso Basin to the east (Fig. I). The western part is on the margin of the Great Sandy Desert, and the eastern part is in the Tanami Desert. The region as described in this Bulletin is covered by all or parts of ten I: 250000 map sheets-Birrindudu, Tanami, The Granites, Highland Rocks, and Lake Mackay in the Northern Territory, and Gordon Downs, Billiluna, Lucas, Stansmorc, and Webb in Western Australia.
