Shergold, J.H., 1982. Idamean (Late Cambrian) trilobites, Burke River Structural Belt, Western Queensland. Bulletin  187. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Idamean trilobite assemblages are described in this Bulletin from localities in the central portion of the Burke River Structural Belt, on the southern part of the Duchess 1: 250 000 Geological Series Sheet (Carter & bpik, 1963) (Fig. 1). Idamean trilobites have been collected in this area several times since their first published descriptions by bpik in 1963. During 1967 C. E. Murray (Geological Survey of Queensland), then attached to the Bureau of Mineral Resources Northwest Queensland Phosphate Group, collected from localities along the eastern margin of the Structural Belt during routine mapping between Moonlight Bore and Mistake Bore (Fig. 1); and F. de Keyser obtained trilobites from the western side of the Structural Belt southeast of Pilgrim Well. In 1969, J. H. Shergold collected sequences at Mount Murray during an investigation of the trilobite assemblages of the nearby Chatsworth Limestone, and again in 1974 when the Mount Murray sections were surveyed as part of an appraisal of the relation between the Pomegranate and Chatsworth Limestones. All new material described in this Bulletin is deposited in the Commonwealth Palaeontological Collection (CPC), Bureau of Mineral Resources, Canberra. Older material is refigured from Whitehouse's collections, which is housed in the Fossil Collections, Department of Geology, University of Queensland, St Lucia (UQF).
