Abstract

The survey of Dampier Land was undertaken to investigate the extent of the Mesozoic deposits, which were previously known to exist from the information obtained from deep water bores at Broome and near Derby, and as surface outcrops at Point Torment, north of Derby. A series of reconnaissance traverses was made in an effort to visit all known rock exposures. The town of Broome was used as a base for the reconnaissance. Areas, including Mount Clarkson, Mount Jowlaenga, Cape Leveque and the Sunday Islands were visited during the investigation. This report comprises detailed descriptions of the topography, general geology, micropalaeontology, structural geology, geological history, and petroleum prospects of the areas investigated.
