Author : K.W.F. So & R.J. Sewell


Since the completion of earlier regional geological surveys in the northwestern New Territories, there have been difficulties among Hong Kong's geotechnical practitioners concerning the description and classification of rocks of the Tuen Mun Formation. Therefore, this report aims to provide guidelines on the description and classification of the rocks based on a comprehensive review of all known lithologies in the Tuen Mun Formation. A lexicon is also introduced to facilitate the proposed lithological classification scheme among practitioners.
