Chapman, F. & Crespin, I., 1932. The Tertiary geology of East Gippsland, Victoria : as shown in borings and quarry sections. Bulletin  001. Department of Home Affairs, Melbourne.

Abstract

The authors have been engaged for the past four years in studying in the minutest details the material obtained from various borings in both the Lakes Entrance and the Stradbroke-Glencoe areas. This work has been done under the authority of the Department of Home Affairs at the Commonwealth Palaeontologist's Office at the National Museum, Melbourne. We would here like to acknowledge the exceptional facilities afforded by the Director and Trustees of the National Museum in making available to us their invaluable reference collection of fossils. We are also under great obligations to the officers of the Geological Survey of Victoria for their valuable help in facilitating the examination of the cores from the various bores here dealt with. We have examined six bores in the Lakes Entrance area, eleven bores in the Stradbroke-Glencoe areas, and eight quarry sections and surface samples from two bores in the Stradbroke-Glencoe areas. The bores and quarries are fully listed in sections Il and Ill. From the immense amount of details derived from the bore cores and quarry samples it has been possible to piece together conclusive evidence in regard to the sequence and age of the beds in East Gippsland.
