This large map of Queensland was compiled and drawn by H.W. Fox of the Geological Survey Office in Brisbane. A key beneath the title names and color codes the various geological features identified on the map. An extensive list of minerals, ranging from anthracite to zircons, are located as well. A table at top catalogs the gold and mineral fields with their dates of proclamation, and coal fields are named. The map is embellished by a decorative fleur-de-lis and the emblem of the Geological Survey Office. Printed at the Government Printing Office in Brisbane.
Backed in linen with toning, an extraneous crease at top right, and some small chips and tears in the blank margins.
