Townley, K.A., Bennett, E.M. & Gates, D.J., 1952. Preliminary report on the Precambrian rocks of the Lawn Hill, Camooweal and Dobbyn sheets. Record  1952/047. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

An area of about 12,000 square miles was mapped in the field seasons 1950-51. It contains four Pre-Cambrian rock groups ranging from Archaeozoic to Uppermost Proterozoic. The main groups in the area, the Mt. Isa and Lawn Hill Groups, are shallow-water geosynclinal sediments involved in a Proterozoic orogeny which resulted in fairly intensive folding along dominantly north-south axes, together with much faulting. The geological features discussed in this report include physiography, topography, stratigraphy, igneous activity, structure, mineral deposits and water supply.
