Abstract

The Denison Range Basin is one of several small basins along
the Adamsfield Trough, a Cambrian eugeosynclinal structure developed
between a geanticline of "Older" Precambrian metasediments to the west
(Tyennan Geanticline) and a complex belt of mainly "Younger" Precambrian
rocks to the southeast (Jubilee Block). The trough is overlapped from
the east by marine Ordovician rocks of the Florentine Synclinorium. Most
of the filling of the Denison Range as in took place in the Upper Cambrian,
after the main igneous activity in the trough (including the emplacement
of ultramafics onto the seafloor) had ceased, and the sediments record a
transition from flysch-type turbidites and siltstones to molasse-type
sandstones and fanglomerates.
