Abstract

[Extract] The Thomson Orogen was originally named 'Thomson Fold Belt' by Kirkegaard (1974) on the basis of early Paleozoic rocks found in the subsurface under the Eromanga Basin in central and southern Queensland (Figure 3.1), Kirkegaard's reasoning is clear:

Because the geological data available for this area are meagre, and because the structural trend appears to be northeast, this belt of early Paleozoic rocks is referred to as the Thomson Fold Belt. The name is taken from the Thomson River that flows within the Mesozoic cover parallel to the indicated structural trend of the belt. It is considered that the introduction of this term, rather than extending the use of the Lachlan Fold Belt, allows a more objective study to be made of the northern part of the [Tasman] Geosyncline (Kirkegaard 1974, p. 48).
