Nelson Rock and Mineral Club
The 88 Valley
... is one of the most important Triassic areas in New Zealand.
Bounded by the Waimea Fault in the west, and the 88 Fault in the east, it provides outcrops of a range of rocks from the Kaihikuan through to the Otapirian.
Many of the strata are fossiliferous, and brachiopods, bivalves, amonoids, anthozoa, crinoids and plant material have all been described from the area.
... is being made possible by the kind permission of the land-owner, who is providing exclusive access to the farmland for Club members.
