Title: The South Maslin Sand and its relations to the Eocene sequence of St Vincent Basin
Author: Brown, R. G.
Issue Date: 1960
School/Discipline: School of Physical Sciences
Abstract: Field and laboratory investigations of the North and South Maslin Sands, and to a lesser extent, the Tortachilla Limestone, have been carried out. Lithological and organic features of the South Maslin Sands have been compared with corresponding features of the North Maslin Sands and the Tortachilla Limestone. The stratigraphic relationships of the South Maslin Sands and each of the adjoining Eocene formations have been examined. Conclusions have been made as to the depositional environments of each of the three formations, and discussed in connection with their stratigraphic relationships.
