Lower Tertiary Rocks in the Province of Berber, Anglo-Egyptian Sudan

  • K. S. Sandford


In the Abstracts of the Proceedings of the Geological Society of London, No. 1254, of 16th December, 1932, Mr. L. R. Cox described certain siliceous boulders, and their Lower Tertiary fauna, collected for the most part at Hudi, north of the Atbara, by Mr. G. V. Colchester and others. As Mr. Grabham pointed out, the implications that the nature of the boulders and their fauna involve are of supreme importance to the geology of this part of the Nile Basin and, for that matter, of Africa.

page 303 note 1 The plain was crossed from the headquarters of Zeidab plantations westward to the scarp at a point called by local Bedouin Jebel Umm Gema, which appears to be identical with J. Umm Gerab (see Survey Dept. 1: 250,000 map sheet 45–K). The line of hills recalls the scarp culminating in J. Nakharu, 9 miles N.N.W. of Berber town, where the Tertiary rocks are also reported to occur.
