Abstract

Since the discovery of tin at Mt. Heemskirk in
1876, and of galena at Zeehan in 1882, many geologists
have worked on different problems within the region,
chiefly on mineral fields or specific mines.
The presence of fossiliferous Ordovician, Silurian,
Devonian and Permian rocks has long been recognised but
for many years the stratigraphical position and structural
relationship of the older formations have been uncertain.
Although detailed mapping is hindered by dense scrub, poor
exposures and complex structures, significant advances
have been made in recent years by geologists from State,
University and mining institutions, especially since the
identification of Middle Cambrian fossils in 1943.
The thesis has as its foundation, therefore, the labour of
several generations of geologists, to them a tribute is due.
