    Wandagee No. 1 Well was located in the Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia, approximately 84 miles north-eastof Carnarvon. The well was drilled by Oil Drilling and Exploration CVV.A.) Fty Limited for West Australian Petroleum pty Limited, to a total depth of feet. Drilling commenced on 25th April, and was completed on 12th June, This study examines the Ordovician–Silurian Tumblagooda Sandstone, which is exposed in the gorge of the Murchison River and coastal cliffs near Kalbarri, Western Australia. The Tumblagooda Sandstone comprises stacked sand-rich facies, with well-preserved bedforms and trace by: 3. Western Australia exhibits two spectacular rocky coastlines. One is the modern setting with its broad rock platforms and towering sea cliffs eroded in the red Tumblagooda Sandstone (Silurian) capped by pale sandstones and shales (Triassic, Cretaceous). The other is an approximately , year-old Pleis-.

The Tumblagooda Sandstone underlies dolomite, limestone and evaporites from the Silurian, in the subsurface, of shallow marine origin.

Low dips characterise these units, that extend across the basin, with the exception of the easternmost part (Hocking et al., ; Iasky et al., ). Whilst acknowledging the geological evidence for a Silurian age of the Tumblagooda Sandstone of Western Australia, this article draws attention to palaeomagnetic data which suggest a significantly older age.

The pole position from the Tumblagooda Sandstone provides a strong constraint on the location of the Australian Palaeozoic apparent polar wander path (APWP), and by inference Cited by: Tumblagooda Sandstone Formationin Western Australia.

A magnetic polarity reversal near the top of the Tumblagooda Sandstone, in the Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia, has been intensively investigated in five coastal sections and four inland sections, all located near the top of the formation.

The Tumblagooda Sandstone (late Silurian) includes facies of mixed fluvial and aeolian sandsheet origin. It is over 1 km thick in the type outcrop area and comprises quartz-rich medium to coarse grained red-bed sandstones which are thought to rest unconformably on metamorphic basement.

Introduction An earlier palaeomagnetic investigation (Em- bleton and Giddings, ) of the Tumblagooda Sandstone of Western Australia detected the pres- ence of a reversal in polarity of the remanent magnetization.

This formation is a prominent red bed unit outcropping in gorges along the coast and banks of the Murchison River. Ichnofossils of the Tumblagooda Sandstone are comparable to those of the Devonian Taylor Group in Antarctica and the Ordovician–Silurian Mereenie Sandstone at Kings Canyon in central Australia.

The majority of traces in the Tumblagooda Sandstone were formed by animals living under water, called aquatic or subaqueous. such, the Tumblagooda Sandstone records the first sedimentological evidence for the initiation of this rifting along the western Australia margin during the early Paleozoic.

The Tumblagooda Sandstone is dominated by iron oxide-rich quartz arenites that have variously been interpreted as having been deposited largely in aFile Size: 4MB.

These arthropods are among the very first animals to walk on land. Millions of years later, their trackways will be preserved as the Tumblagooda Sandstone in Kalbarri Gorge, Western Australia.

Pencell Pool is a natural pool on the Murchison River in Mid West Western Australia. It is located on the Coolcalalaya Road about 8 kilometres east of Galena Bridge. It is of geological interest because its steep cliffs expose excellent examples of Ordovician Tumblagooda Sandstone, containing trace fossils of Skolithos and probably Diplocraterion.

Abstract The Tumblagooda Sandstone (. Late Silurian) of Western Australia was deposited dominantly by fluvial processes on a palaeoslope to the northwest. Interbedded fluvial and aeolian sandsheet deposits occur within the formation, in which winds blowing obliquely up the palaeoslope to the southeast reworked the sandy, unvegetated, and.

Western Australia As many as eleven different species of arthro-pods (not all of them terrestrial) may have been responsible for a rich diversity of trackways and burrows in the Upper Silurian Tumblagooda Sandstone of Western Australia (Trewin and McNamara ).

Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh: Earth Sciences, Vol. 85, Issue. 3, p. The Tumblagooda sandstone is a geological formation deposited during the Silurian or Ordovician periods, around four to five hundred million years ago, and is now exposed on the west coast of Australia, straddling the boundary of the Carnarvon and Perth e trackways may prove to be the earliest evidence of terrestrial animals.

[1].In Western Australia, similar thick red sandstones belonging to the Upper Silurian Tumblagooda Sandstone were derived from a Precambrian massif called the Yilgarn Block.

In contrast to sandstones that accumulated because of river transport, eolian (wind-driven) sandstones are those deposited under desert conditions.
