Abstract

"Spudding in" operations took place on September 5th, 1953, and oil was discovered on November 1st at the depth of 3,605-3,622 feet. By agreement with the West Australia Petroleum Pty. Ltd. one of us (D.J.B.) went to Learmonth on September 3rd to examine cuttings and cores for foraminifera to help in determining the formations drilled. He carried out his investigations until the well had reached the depth of 4,659 feet, and returned to Canberra on December 30th. Preliminary determinations of foraminifera and radiolaria were made at the site. This report is the result of detailed examination of the microfossils which were brought back to Canberra.
