Abstract: The geology of northeastern Otago, from Palmerston to the Kakanui River, has been described by Mutch and Brown, but little of this work has been published. This report presents an updated and revised compilation of these older manuscripts, together with offshore geology at Shag Point by Allan (1990), with an emphasis on Cretaceous and Cenozoic stratigraphy. Computer-plotted 1:50,000 geological maps of NZMS 260 sheets J43 and J42 are included. (auth/EB)
