Abstract

The oldest rocks found in this area are Pre-Cambrian and the youngest are Recent but on the whole the area is one of great stability and not many of the periods of geological time are represented. The Pre-Cambrian are found outcropping round the edge of the basin and for simplicity in field work have been divided into five divisions. These are Tennant Creek, MacArthur R., Buldiva, Helen Springs, and Barkly Downs. This report provides a field summary of geology by division.
