Abstract

The stratigraphy and structure of an area in the Carnarvon sedimentary basin covered by the Williambury and Moogooree one mile sheets, is described. Resting unconformably on a Pre-Cambrian basement of schists gneisses and granites, are Devonian marine sediments 4750 feet thick, followed conformably by Carboniferous approximately 2150 feet thick; these are separated from the overlying Permian more than 8000 feet thick, by a possible hiatus. The Cretaceous System is represented by about 40 feet of siltstone lying unconformably on the Palaeozoic rocks. Marine Tertiary arenaceous deposits are widespread and have a maximum thickness of 80 feet; they are not seen in contact with the Cretaceous rocks. The whole area has been subjected, in Tertiary time, to lateritisation, the most prominent feature of which is the presence of a silicified cap ranging in thickness from a few feet to 30 feet. In one place a post-laterite deposit of 12 feet of probably fresh-water limestone has been observed. An account is given of the structural geology, geological history, and physiography of the region.
