Abstract

Re-examination of a reference section through the Adaminaby beds at El Paso, west of Dalgety in southern New South Wales, does not support the conventionally held belief that rocks here form a simple Upper Ordovician homoclinal sequence which dips and youngs to the west. Rather, there has been thrust interleaving of a Lower Ordovician turbidite-chert sequence with an Upper Ordovician black shale sequence. The El Paso area thus lies in a thin-skinned thrust belt which was first recognized in the Delegate area 60 km to the south and which also extends north and east of Dalgety. -from Authors
