Components. Australia's geology can be divided into several main sections: the Archaean cratonic shields, Proterozoic fold belts and sedimentary basins, Phanerozoic sedimentary basins, and Phanerozoic metamorphic and igneous rocks.. Australia as a separate continent began to form after the breakup of Gondwana in the Permian, with the separation of the continental landmass from the . Tertiary sedimentary rocks, in places over m thick, occupy a series of elongate basins within and partly surrounding the Arunta crystalline basement in the Alice Springs region, central Australia.

Precambrian Rocks in the Cordes Area, Yavapai County, Arizona By C. A. ANDERSON GEOLOGICAL SURVEY BULLETIN A study of the stratigraphy and structure of the Precambrian stratified and intrusive rocks UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON: . The ongm of the metamorphic rocks presents a considerable problem which can only be solved by the systematic investigation of a wider area than is here described. The adjacent area, totalling some square miles, has been mapped by geologists of the Tasmanian Hydro-Electric Commission and the petrology of these rocks will be published shortly.

In conclusion let me reiterate my main reasons for interpreting the Vijayan-Highland Series-Southwest Group as a basement-supracrustal relationship (Katz,p. The Highland Series-Southwest Group structures are simple linear trends in comparison with the more complex Vijayan structures.

There appears to be in certain places a cross-cutting relationship where Highland. The Warramunga Group at Tennant Creek, Central Australia is a Precambrian sequence of essentially slate-greywacke alternation and is metamorphosed to greenschist facies during regional tectonism.
