Title: Test-Pit Exploration in Coastal Plain of Sumatra

Author(s): Olaf P. Jenkins (2)


In order to examine properly the later Tertiary shales and bedded sandstones of southeastern Sumatra, it is necessary first to penetrate the lateritic mantle. This has been accomplished by digging systematically located pits. The method of work, and the results of observations made of this blanket material, lying beneath the jungle-covered regions of Sumatra, are described and the value of the method is discussed.
