Davies, H.L., 1971. Peridotite-gabbro-basalt complex in Eastern Papua an overthrust plate of oceanic mantle and crust. Bulletin  128. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

This Bulletin presents preliminary results of an investigation of the Papuan Ultramafic Belt, a peridotite-gabbro-basalt complex which is thought to be part of a plate of Cretaceous oceanic mantle and crust. A summary of results up to 1967, which includes a brief review of previous work, has already been published (Davies, 1968). R. N. England is currently making a detailed mineralogical study of the peridotites and gabbros.The Papuan Ultramafic Belt is a peridotite-gabbro-basalt complex which crops out over a length of 400 km (NW-SE) and a width of 40 km, on the northeastern side of the Owen Stanley Range in eastern Papua (7°-10°S, 147°-149°E).
