Introduction*

Preliminary analysis of 69 samples of red pigment from various locations suggests that ochres collected from archaeological sites can be sourced to particular geological formations via PIXE analyses. This paper reports on these investigations, presenting initial results of a long-term project on PUCE-PIGME analyses of north Australian pigments.

*Note that an abstract was not included with this paper, and so the introductory paragraph has been included here instead of the abstract.
