Abstract

An account is given of geological work done at Chick Henry Islands on the Sabrina Coast and the Wilson Hills in Oates Land. Chick Island is a porphyritic charnockitic granite and Henry Island a porphyritic biotite granite. The rocks at all places examined in the Wilson Hills and the nearby Aviation Islands are migmatites, consisting of an irregular network of granite veins through banded feldspar-biotite gneiss; a few pegmatites are present. Small-scale folding can be seen at many places.
