Abstract

"The mineralogy and mechanical composition of fine grained clayey sandstones of marine origin in the type Cheltenhamian section at Beaumaris, Victoria, are described. The beds have approximately the same grain size through about 40 feet of vertical cliffs. The minerals present indicate an origin from the erosion and sorting of previous sedimentary rocks. The clay mineral present has been identified as nontronite."
