New Zealand Geological Survey basin studies 2. 94 p. Abstract: The Canterbury region extends from Kaikoura in the north to Dunedin in the south and from the Alpine and Hope Faults and Kyeburn in the west to about longitude 74 deg. 50 min. offshore in the east. The main database comprises over 200 measured sections, data from nine petroleum exploration wells and over 6000 km of modern seismic lines as well as more extensive coverage from older seismic surveys. A revised stratigraphy is used. Measured section data are provided on microfiche, along with a lexicon of stratigraphic names.

Abstract: The western Southland region described in this bulletin is bounded by the Alpine Fault to the west of Fiordland, and the Lake Wakatipu region, the Longwood and Takitimu ranges, and Stewart Island to the east. The southern limit is offshore in the Solander Trough.
Upper Cretaceous coal measures on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand include examples of.Geochemical data related to AMD for the West Coast and Southland regions have been collated into a relational database and GIS system.
Upper Cretaceous coal measures on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand include examples of thick, clean bituminous coal that accumulated in geographic proximity to active fluvial regimes. Seams range in longest dimension from less than 1 km to a maximum of about 3 km, and commonly exceed 10 m in thickness. The types of information include; rock geochemical data, water chemistry data and aquatic macro-invertebrate abundance data.

The West Coast (Māori: Te Tai Poutini) is a region of New Zealand on the west coast of the South Island that is administered by the West Coast Regional Council. It comprises the territorial authorities of Buller District, Grey District and Westland District. The principal towns are Westport, Greymouth, and Hokitika. The region is one of the more remote and most sparsely populated areas of the country.
The geology of New Zealand is noted for its volcanic activity, earthquakes and geothermal areas because of its position on the boundary of the Australian Plate and Pacific Plates.
Cretaceous to Cenozoic sedimentary basins in Western Southland include a wide range of non-marine and marine sediments, in a structurally complex setting dominated by major fault systems. A reassessment of their mineral potential confirms large quantities of nonmetallic minerals (limestone, aggregate, marl), and smaller reserves of bituminous coal, lignite, clays, and oil shale. Hydrocarbon potential is largely untested. Metallic minerals are present in trace amounts, apart from platinum group minerals and some detrital gold.

New Zealand is currently astride the convergent boundary between the Pacific and Australian Plates. The volcanoes off the West coast of the North Island, together with Taranaki and the Tongariro Volcanic Centre, are responsible for the black iron sand on many of the beaches between Taranaki and Auckland. Shortly after (18 Ma), a volcanic arc developed further east to create the Coromandel Ranges and undersea Colville Ridge Notable geologists.
