Abstract

The Lesi structure, situated near the coast of the Gulf of Papua, about 100 miles north-west of Port Moresby, was surveyed by plane table. A full account of this survey work is set down in this report. The general characteristics, physiography, and regional geology of the area are described. A detailed account of the geology of the Lesi structure is given, including descriptions of the lithology, palaeontology, stratigraphy, and geological structure. The structure's relation to adjoining structures and the possibility of oil accumulation are discussed. An extract from a micropalaeontological report, geological plans, and photographs of the area are appended.
