Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources and the N.S.W. Geological Survey have jointly undertaken the regional geological mapping of a large portion of the Monaro region of N.S.W. for the Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Commission. Prior to the present survey, reconnaissance mapping to as far north as a line through Bimbori in the east to Yarrangobilly in the west, had been completed. The objects of the present survey were to continue this map to the north as far as Wee Jasper and, concurrently, to endeavour to ascertain the character, structure, and stratigraphy of the sediments in the western portion of the A.C.T. Field work was carried out in two periods. The first period, of approximately two and a half months from January to March 1950, was spent in a detailed study of the Ordovician beds in the western portion of the A.C.T. and in mapping the area between Wee Jasper and Cooleman caves. The second period was of three weeks duration in February 1951 and was devoted to extending the geological mapping westward to the Goobragandra - Goodradigbee divide.
