Summary
Abstract: Sections of Aztec siltstone at Mt Metschel, in the Alligator Peak area, Shapeless Mountain, Mount Fleming, the Lashly Mountains and Aztec Mountain were examined and sampled on a very detailed scale for petrographic and chemical analysis. Careful observations were made of specific sedimentological phenomena (i.e. nodules, intraformational conglomerates, mudcracks and ripple marks). The ... View entire text
