Abstract

The Ordovician age of the limestone at the Belubula River was recognized by the present writer from fossils collected by Mr. N.C. Stevens, University of Sydney. Thought, in the opinion of A.A. Opik, the first collection examined was completely convincing, Mr. Stevens approached the Chief Geologist, Dr. N.H. Fisher, early in 1951 for further support in the field. It was then decided that A.A. Opik, being responsible for the age-determination of the fossils from the Belubula River, Cliefden Caves area, would accompany Mr. Stevens on a field excursion to collect more evidence for the age of the limestones and to look for an occurrence of Silurian fossils in the same area. The results of this examination are given in this report, comprising a description of the Ordovician sequence, and a summary of the stratigraphy and correlation of the Ordovician Belubula River.
