Abstract

This report is a record of field work carried out by B.H. Flinter and G.E. McInnes during January-February, 1949. The area covered extends south from Queanbeyan and Mt. Stromlo to 3 miles beyond Williamsdale and represents an easterly extension of the work carried out by W.J. Orme and H.M. Harris in 1948 (Record 1948/031). The investigation was essentially of a regional character and little detailed mapping or close examination of sediments or igneous rocks was attempted. The stratigraphy, igneous rocks, structural observations, and physiography of the area are described in this report. Accompanying geological sketch and section plans are included.
