Mannum Formation STRATNO: 11187
Current: Yes Rank: Formation, beds Status: Formal State(s): SA , VIC
Category: Other new published name Usage: Defined Definition Card: No
Originator: Entry date: 01-JAN-88Last Update: 20-AUG-18
Replaced by: Previously known as: Mannum Limestone
Description: Low energy carbonate ramp sediments with common echinoids, bryozoans and molluscs. Calcarenite,calcisiltite.
Comments: Part of the Ludbrook (1961) stratigraphic scheme for the Murray Group until 1995 when Rogers et al replaced it together with Morgan Limestone and Pata Limestone with the single unit, Mannum Limestone. Reinstated as Mannum Formation during the Lukasik and James (1998) revision of Murray Group up to Murray Supergroup, and retained as Mannum Formation when Murray Group was reinstated. Divided into "upper Mannum Formation" and "lower Mannum Formation" by Lukasic and James (1998) - which are retained in the reinstated Murray Group, including Swan Reach Dolomite Member in lower section.
