Abstract

Following the discovery of large phosphate deposits in the eastern part of the Georgina Basin in 1966 by Broken Hill South Limited, the Bureau of Mineral Resources embarked on a detailed stratigraphical and palaeontological study of the Cambrian sediments of the area in 1967. Particular attention was given to the phosphatic part of the section, but new information on the associated Cambrian units was also gained. In 1967, F. de Keyser, J. H. Shergold, C. G. Gatehouse, R. Thieme, and C. Murray (Geological Survey of Queensland) mapped the Burke River Outlier, and in 1968 de Keyser and Thieme mapped the Cambrian of the northeastern corner of the Barkly Tableland. In 1969 de Keyser and P. J. Cook completed the mapping of the known phosphogenic areas in Queensland when they mapped the eastern margin of the Georgina Basin in the Mount Isa/Urandangi area. Associated palaeontological, petrological, and geochemical studies were also carried out.
