WA unearthed

The Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA) is publishing a compilation of the State’s geology in a new format. The series presents an understanding of the geological evolution of Western Australia that is the distillation of 30 years of geological mapping by GSWA and its collaborations with university and industry researchers. It emphasises the integration with precise geochronology and the contribution of high-quality isotopic, geophysical, and geochemistry datasets.

Three of the publications in the series have been published.

Who should buy the books?

The books are aimed at geologists, and particularly newcomers to the State, to enable them to get a quick understanding of the geology and economic potential of various terrains.

Each book provides GSWA’s perspective on the geological history of the State, with a list of recommended references.
