Abstract

This Bulletin presents the results of systematic geological mapping in north Queensland by joint field parties of the Bureau of Mineral Resources and the Geological Survey of Queensland, during the period 1958 to 1963. The area investigated is more than 36,000 square miles, and extends from Princess Charlotte Bay in the north to the township of Ingham in the south, and from 142°30'E. to the shores of the South Pacific Ocean. It is the site of a Palaeozoic geosyncline the Hodgkinson Basin and includes part of the western Precambrian borderland, which is separated from the geosyncline by the Palmerville Fault, a large fundamental structure.
