PESA Sedimentology and Stratigraphy Interest Group (SSIG) Meeting – November

Friday, 25 November, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm (Australia/Perth time)

Free – $10.00

PESA Sedimentology and Stratigraphy Interest Group  meeting 

25th of November, 1 – 4pm Carlisle core library

4pm Balmoral Hotel, Victoria park

SSIG – The Coals of the South Perth Basin

While our European friends may not be able to get enough coal right now, over here at PESA WA we have oodles of this little compressed, organic, black rock of happiness. Over four hundred meters of it in fact! And we’re going to let PESA WA members spend a few hours admiring it for the bargain basement price of $10. We have not just one, but two cored sections of Permian coal from the south Perth Basin for you to admire, along with overbanks, point bars, conglomerates and organic-rich shales. Come and examine the rarely seen CRCH1 and CRCH3 cores from the Vasse Shelf at the next SSIG meeting and look at the age equivalents of the Kingia Fm (from the north Perth Basin) and see the remnants of the Glossopteris swamps (and ‘forests’) that were deposited in the hinterland of the Early Permian landscape.


We’ll also be enlisting the talents of GSWA geologist Charmaine Thomas and Alan Millar to guide us through the section and put the cores in context with the depositional history of the south Perth Basin Permian sequence. At a mere $10 per PESA member you’d better book early as this one will be selling faster than coal briquettes on a cold Germanic day.

At 4pm there is chance to network with the other attendees and continue the discussion over drinks. PESA supplies nibbles, but drinks are at your own expense.


Member price: $10

Student Members:  Free – registration essential

Tickets close 5pm the day prior.

Don’t forget to book early as we have a hard limit of 35 attendees and every previous SSIG meeting has been fully booked out.

This event is for members only. This is for insurance purposes. Please do not book on behalf of non-members. Please do not attend if you do not have a ticket.

If there are any questions please don’t hesitate to contact your hosts: Darren Ferdinando ( or Vincent Crombez (
