A phenomenon, thought to be a possible "gas blow", occurring in the Sirunki - Laiagam area, 9 miles west-northwest of Wabag, Western Highlands, was investigated by the writer in August, 1952 after it had been reported to the Senior Geologist at Port Moresby by the Assistant District Officer stationed at Wabag. The writer was accompanied into the area by Patrol Officer T. Dwyer. Pace and compass and time and compass methods were used to record observations on the patrol. A geological reconnaissance map accompanies this report.
