|Interpretation of the stratigraphy of the upper sequences of the Clarence-Moreton Basin|
after Wells & O'Brien (1994) and Willis (1994)
|Reviewed Clarence-Moreton Basin stratigraphy after Doig & Stanmore (2012)|
The Woodenbong beds don’t get a guernsey at all in this paper. I suspect that this is because it would better fit into either the Bungawalbin Member of the Kangaroo Creek Sandstone or the Piora Member of the Grafton formation. More work needs to be carried out to make it more certain.
Clearly we do not understand much about the Clarence-Moreton Basin. Even the shallowest geological components! Knowledge keeps improving the more people investigate. The paper provides further interest because identification of the stratigraphic units and geochemical data obtained provide an indication of the risk associated with groundwater resources and CSG production. So as usual, further blog posts are required.
