Abstract

Some time ago, Mr. A. Montgomery, M.A., Government
Geologist of Tasmania, presented to the Australian
Museum a small collection of Silurian fossils from Zeehan
and Heazlewood.
As so little is at present known of the organic remains
occurring in the sedimentary rocks of these important
mineral fields, a few notes on their affinities may not be
out of place, notwithstanding the very poor state of preservation
of the fossils. However, any facts that may be
evolved from their elaboration will perhaps be of use to
future investigators who may have the good fortune to
take up the subject hereafter.
