Summary

The general regional geology and structure of Malaya is succinctly described, illustrated by two colored maps (scale 1:5,500,000.) Details of the stratigraphical succession and igneous history are summarized in table form and several isotope age determinations are quoted as indicating the age of the major granite emplacement.
