Description: Unconsolidated to poorly consolidated mottled variegated clay, silty clay with lenses of polymictic, coarse to fine sand and gravel; partly modified by pedogenesis, includes intercalated red-brown paleosols. Forms extensive flat alluvial floodplains.
Comments: Of Lawrence (1966). Partly equivalent to Parilla Sand. Fluvial and lacustrine sediments including channel sands, levee banks of fine sandy clay and floodplain clays (see refID:60599). Nonmagnetic with dendritic, moderately magnetic responses (10-20 nT); moderate K, variable Th, and U. Geological Survey of Victoria map code: Nws. Bowler (1967) obtained radio-carbon dates on the upper part of the formation, ranging from 20 900+/-500 years BP to 30 600+/-1300 years BP. Has nonconformable contact with Crosbie Granite. Yando Clay is a component in Loddon Valley. Geological Province: Murray Basin/Riverine Plain.
