The original town of Onslow was gazetted as a townsite on 26 October and named after Sir Alexander Onslow, the Chief Justice of Western Australia at the time. It supported the nearby stations that had been established along the Ashburton River and the gold mines that had developed in . Interestingly, the youngest detrital zircon in the Beasley River Quartzite is ± 18 Ma (Geological Survey of Western Australia, ; sample number ), which does not appear to support erosion of ca. Ma dolerites on a ~ m.y. unconformity (Müller et al., ).Cited by: 2. The Canning Basin is a geological basin located in Western Australia.. The Basin covers approximately (, km²) of which approximately (, km²) is on land. It has been recognised as having prospective oil and gas capacity and has been studied extensively; as of June wells have been drilled km of seismic shot.. The basin is also a distinct physiographic province. The geography of Australia encompasses a wide variety of biogeographic regions being the world's smallest continent but the sixth-largest country in the world. The population of Australia is concentrated along the eastern and southeastern coasts. The geography of the continent is extremely diverse, ranging from the snow-capped mountains of the Australian Alps and Tasmania to large deserts Area: Ranked 6th.

the Ashburton Basin followed the Ophthalmian Orogeny, and all of these rocks were deformed by the Panhandle (c. 2 Ga) and Capricorn (c. Ga) orogenies. Introduction The Pilbara region of Western Australia is one of only two areas in the world – the other being the Kaapvaal Craton of southern Africa. Western Australia (abbreviated as WA) is a state occupying the entire western third of is bounded by the Indian Ocean to the north and west, and the Southern Ocean to the south, the Northern Territory to the north-east, and South Australia to the south-east. Western Australia is Australia's largest state, with a total land area of 2,, square kilometres (, sq mi), and Capital city: Perth. Components. Australia's geology can be divided into several main sections; the Archaean cratonic shields, Proterozoic fold belts and sedimentary basins, Phanerozoic sedimentary basins, and Phanerozoic metamorphic and igneous rocks.. Australia as a separate continent began to form after the breakup of Gondwana in the Permian, with the separation of the continental landmass from the African.   Author of Palaeontological papers, Geological papers, BMR earth science atlas of Australia, Petroleum exploration and development companies in Australia, Summary of data and results, Bonaparte Gulf Basin, Western Australia, Eulo, Queensland, Samphire Marsh no. 1 Well Western Australia of West Australian Petroleum Pty Limited, Flaxmans no. 1 well of Frome-Broken .
