One major problem with all the BMR publications is that bores are referred to by project numbers and local names, not the Registered Numbers. The map of the Town Basin sediments presented in this report is still the best available. Only in a few areas such as the Railway Yards where there have been recent investigations near the fringe of the basin is there additional data.
