Abstract

The Forbes 1:250 000 map sheet area, which includes the towns of Forbes, Parkes, Grenfell, West Wyalong, and Condobolin, lies towards the western edge of the exposed Palaeozoic rocks of the Lachlan Fold Belt in New South Wales. Bedrock units range in age from Early Ordovician to late Tertiary (mid-Miocene). About 80% of the map sheet area is covered by Cainozoic units. The use of high quality geophysical datasets is invaluable in interpreting the geology.
