Abstract: Evidence has recently been obtained of the presence of Devonian and Carboniferous rocks in Hong Kong. Some new insights into the geology of the Mesozoic rocks which cover the greater part of the territory have been obtained from recent mapping. A new geological survey of Hong Kong begun in 1983 is expected to throw light on some of the numerous stratigraphic and structural problems and uncertainties which still remain.
