Abstract

The Northern Australian Development Committee nominated the region of the Ord and Victoria rivers to be surveyed by the Northern Australian Regional Survey, when the Barkly Region had been completed. The immediate objectives of the Survey are "to accurately record the nature of the country, to establish a sound basis upon which the production possibilities of the Region may be appraised and to make general recommendations concerning development and further investigations." It was decided that the region should include the Army Four Mile Map Sheets of Delamere, Victoria River Downs, Wave Hill, Birrundudu, Limbunya, Waterloo, Auvergne, Port Keats, Medusa Banks, Cambridge Gulf, Lissadell, Dixon Range, and Gordon Downs, and that the field work would be commenced during the 1949 dry season. The techniques and methods used to complete this survey work are noted. The stratigraphy, pedology, and economic geology of the area are described in some detail.
