Current: No Rank: Group, Suite Status: Formal State(s): VIC
Category: Variation of published name Usage: Fully described Definition Card: No
Originator: Entry date: 01-JAN-88Last Update: 31-JAN-18
Replaced by: Sandringham Sandstone Previously known as: Brighton beds (VIC)
Description: Sandstone, conglomerate, siltstone, ironstone. Gravel, sand, silt.
Comments: Published as Brighton beds by Selwyn (1862). Defined by Kenley (1967) GSV Bulletin 59 pp30-46. Geological Province: Melbourne area; Port Phillip Basin. Probably not Otway Basin. See p43-45 Kenley (1967), GSV Bull 59, for discussion on incorporation of Sandringham Sands into Brighton Group. See discussion in vandenBerg (2016) for discussion on incorporation of coastal Brighton Group rocks into marine Sandringham Sandstone. Inland oucrops may need new name if fluvial origin.
