Abstract

Professor T. W. Edgeworth David, B.A.,
F.G.S., one of Australia's most distinguished
geologists, has kindly sent me a
copy of an interesting paper read by him
before the Royal Society of New South
Wales in the year 1893, regarding the
occurrence of "Sill Structure" in the
eruptive rocks of that colony.
It has additional interest for Tasmanian
geologists, inasmuch as it raises the
question at the head of this paper, viz.

" Are all the Colossal Igneous Caps of the
Tasmanian Tiers, and of the Lofty Mountain
Plateaux — such as Ben Lomond, Mount
Wellington, and the Great Plateaux of the
Lake Country - True Sills ?
