Abstract

Sediments of Lower Cretaceous age are widely distributed in Queensland, northern New South Wales and northern South Australia. Their distribution is closely linked with the Great Artesian Basin, which covers an area exceeding 500,000 square miles. Many bores have been put down in this Basin to tap the aquifers which are present in the Jurassic rocks underlying the Cretaceous. Much material remains to be examined and a full report will be prepared after the examinations have been completed. This report comprises notes on the source of microfossil material, notes on the microfauna, a list of localities, and a distribution list of foraminifera. A map of the localities from which samples have been examined is included.
