Summary: Present-day and ancient sedimentary basins are classified into two groups, on the presence or absence of detrital graphite in their sediments. Basins without graphite show one or more of the following features: 1) they are distant from a stable continent or mature island arcs; 2) have volcanic hinterlands; and 3) are shallow water, forming on the summits of guyots or on the deep-sea rise. Study of the distribution of sedimentary rocks containing detrital graphite - the south Kitakami region, the Sangun metamorphic terrain, part of the Hida border fault zone and the Hidaka belt of Hokaido, all in Japan - indicates basins far from continents or having volcanic hinterlands.
