Provenance studies on the Palaeozoic rocks from Thailand and Malaysia (parts of the Sibumasu Block or Shan-Thai Block) suggest proximity to a Precambrian craton. Biogeographic and taxonomic studies on Upper Cambrian through Ordovician trilobite and mollusc faunas suggest that this craton is northern Australia and an Ordovician placement next to Australia is probable.
