Summary: 36 species of agglutinated Paleocene foraminifera were recovered from eight cores of the lowermost 400 m of sediments encountered at Site 283, South Tasman Basin. The stratigraphic interval investigated lies between 4948 and 5309 m below sea level. Lithologies from cores 9 and 11 consist of mottled greeninsh-gray and brownish-gray silty clay (Unit 3) whereas lithologies from cores 12 to 17 (Unit 4) consist of an olive black pyritic silty clay and silty claystone. An arbitrary lithological boundary of units 3 and 4 was established between cores 11 adn 12. The sedimentary sequence cored overlies an altered pillow lava, or pillow breccia.
