Crespin, I., 1955. Micropalaeontology of the Pliocene deposits at Portland, Western Victoria. Record  1955/087. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

During a recent visit to Portland with Dr. N. Boutakoff and Mr. Spencer Jones of the Geological Survey of Victoria, samples were collected systematically at localities along Dutton Way which skirts the eastern shores of Portland Bay and along the foreshore below the station. Locality 2 on Dutton Way represents the type of Maritemo Formation and is approximately eight feet thick. These beds overlie the white deposits of the Portland Limestone and are overlain by basalt. The monument section shows portion of the Maritemo Beds and portion of the topmost unit of the Formation, the Werriko Beds. This section is also overlain by basalt and underlain by Portland Limestone.
