Abstract

In March of this year Mr. A.E. Hawker, of Jindare, forwarded to Canberra a small bottle containing water and a yellowish, oily substance which had formed a coating on the inside of the bottle. Microscopic examination of part of the coating proved the presence of globules of oil and also revealed Desmid algae. It seemed probable that the oil had been derived from the decomposition of algae or other recently dead plants. However, as the locality from which the sample was taken lies within a belt of Cambrian limestone, it was possible that the oil had its origin in this rock. While recently engaged in field work in the Northern Territory, Mr. C.J. Sullivan and the writer examined the localities where oil was said to occur. This report comprises an account of the field observations and geological notes made during the examination.
