Abstract

During the reconnaissance survey carried out in 1952 by Mr. J.E. Thompson, Senior Geologist of the Bureau of Mineral Resources, four traverses were made across the Island and established the following sequence: [see record for detail]. Because of the lack of good exposures, and unreliable dips, no stratigraphic thicknesses could be obtained. Samples of the limestones and tuffaceous siltstones were subsequently sent to Canberra and their microfauna examined by the authors. Following is the list of the faunal determinations.
