Abstract

The Giralia Structure is an eroded, doubly-lunging anticline about 60 miles in length and 10 miles in maximum width. It is situated between Exmouth Gulf and the Lyndon River near the coast in the North West Division of Western Australia. In this investigation micropalaeontology has been applied to help in elucidating the surface stratigraphy of the eroded Giralia Anticline. The chronology, correlation and palaeo-ecology of the exposed sediments must be considered in evaluation their oil-possibilities. To this end examination of microfossils, principally foraminifera, aids materially in recognizing unconformities, structural conditions and facies changes, in dating and correlating strata and in interpreting ancient depositional conditions. The samples studied were collected by a field party of the Bureau of Mineral Resources during the winter months of 1950 and 1951. Additional samples were collected by the writer in visits to the area in July 1950 and July 1952.
