Brief abstract or additional comments (maximum 100 words)

The WINTINNA 1:250000 scale geological map is a recent example of a standard series which covers virtually all of Australia. The map reduces exploration risk by illustrating the area’s geological history and mineral and petroleum potential, but its all-inclusive scope informs other users. It was compiled from field mapping observations and aerial photo interpretation, enhanced by a reference, cross sections, geophysical images and interpretive sketches.

Crystalline basement rocks of the Archaean-Proterozoic Gawler Craton and Proterozoic Musgrave Province are covered except for one small area by up to four sedimentary basins where episodic deposition spans the Neoproterozoic-Cambrian, Carboniferous-Permian, Jurassic-Cretaceous and Cenozoic.
