Abstract

A reconnaissance survey of the Brighton Downs 4-mile Sheet area was conducted by geologists R. R. Vine and W. Jauncey of the Bureau of Mineral Resources between June and August, 1961. Cretaceous rocks crop out over nearly the whole of the Brighton Downs Sheet area. Lower Cretaceous marine sediments appear in the north-west and dip gently eastwards below freshwater deposits of Lower to Upper Cretaceous age. In two main areas of Tertiary sedimentation, one in the north and the other in the south-west, sandstone, clay and limestone have been deposited. Lateritisation is widespread over the area.
