Abstract

The initiation of the Snowy Mountain Hydro-Electric Authority gave a decided impetus to geological research over an area of some 6,000 square miles in southern New South Wales.

Following the Authority's request in 1949 for geologic investigation, officers of the Geological Survey of New South Wales have mapped more than 3,000 square miles of this country by detailed reconnaissance standard on a scale of 1 inch = 1 mile. During the course of these surveys an intensive search was made for fossil remains.

The information embodied in this report was gained during several visits to the Snowy Mountains with Survey parties in the author's capacity as Honorary Palaeontologist to the Geological Survey of New South Wales. A good deal of the information is included in the Snowy Mountains Reports (unpublished) of the Department of Mines. I am indebted to Mrs. Kathleen Sherrard for the graptolite identifications. Etc.
