Abstract

Monograptus thomasi, Early Devonian, occurs west of Cabbage Tree Hill, Beaconsfield, Tasmania, in rocks previously mapped as Cambrian. The occurrence constrains the location of a basal thrust considered to be a conduit for Late Devonian gold mineralisation. The Corn Hill Formation, which contains the graptolite, is significant in regional stratigraphic, palaeogeographic, structural and tectonic models.
