Loxton Sands STRATNO: 10827
Current: No Rank: Formation, beds Status: Superseded State(s): NSW , SA , VIC
Category: Variation of published name Usage: Defined Definition Card: No
Originator: Entry date: 15-SEP-94Last Update: 20-AUG-18
Replaced by: Loxton Sand Previously known as: Loxton sands
Description: Unconsolidated to weakly cemented yellow-brown fine to coarse well-sorted quartz sand, sandstone, interstitial white kaolinitic or gibbsite clay matrix towards top; composite sand sheet deposited in strand plain and fluvial environments
Comments: Loxton-Parilla Sands has been widely used in NSW and Vic where it is harder to distinguish the two units, but this double-barrelled name does not comply with the International Stratigraphic Guide, so its continued use is strongly discouraged. [C.Brown, Convenor, Australian Stratigraphy Commission, NOV 2010]. See Refid 67179 for Loxton Sands being superseded and the proposed redefinition of Loxton Sand.
