Abstract

Cretaceous rocks at Snake River, New Guinea, were previously regarded as part of the Kaindi Metamorphics. However, discordance and difference in metamorphic grade between the Cretaceous rocks (here named the Snake River Greywacke), and the more complexly folded and more highly metamorphosed Kaindi Metamorphics suggest that the metamorphics are considerably older than Cretaceous, and are probably Palaeozoic.
