The Permian Basin is a large sedimentary basin in the southwestern part of the United basin contains the Mid-Continent Oil Field province. This sedimentary basin is located in western Texas and southeastern New reaches from just south of Lubbock, past Midland and Odessa, south nearly to the Rio Grande River in southern West Central Texas, and extending westward into the Cities: Midland, Odessa. The sediments of the Sydney Basin belong largely to two geological periods; the Permian, million years ago, and the Triassic, million years ago. Sydney itself is situated on Triassic rocks and it is only towards the edge of the basin at Wollongong, Newcastle and Lithgow that the older Permian rocks come to the surface. FORAMINIFERA IN THE PERMIAN ROCKS OF AUSTRALIA. 1. INTRODUCTION. Foraminifera were'first recognized in the Permian sediments of Australia in Some systematic work on these micro-fossils was done up to ,5, but there was no further investigation until. , since when five papers on Permian foraminifera have been published. Geology of the Sydney basin; Permian foraminifera of the Sydney Basin / by Viera Scheibnerova; An outline of the geology and geomorphology of the Sydney Basin / by David Branagan, Chris Herbert, Trev Geology and coal resources of the southern catchment coal reserve, southern Sydney basin, New South Wale.

The fossil record indicates that the very first foraminifera (with a hard shell) was the unilocular simple agglutinated Allogromiina, which evolved into the calcareous agglutinated Textulariina during the Cambrian. While the Textualariina were a dominant group early in the Paleozoic, the Fusulinina became dominant later in the Paleozoic (from the Silurian).The Fusulinina are morphologically. SHRIMP ages indicate that deposition probably began earlier in the Sydney than the Bowen Basin, and that Late Permian volcanism in the Warwick region of the southern New England Orogen took place at about the same time as intrusion of the first plutons of the New England Batholith. The primary emphasis of Dr. Scheibner’s work in Australia with the NSW Department of Mines was the study of the Cretaceous and Permian Foraminifera of the Great Australian Basin in New South Wales. She also studied the South Australian and the Carnarvon Basins in Western Australia, South Africa and the Indian Peninsula, and the Permian.

The centre of the basin is located at Fairfield, near Liverpool in Sydney, but only the youngest Triassic (middle Triassic) rocks are exposed in the Sydney area.
