Abstract:
The early history of geological mapping in Sabah can be divided into two successive periods, each finalized
by an attempt at a synthesis. The initial work of pioneer explorers (1880ies–1890ies) was summarized in T. Posewitz’s
publication (1892); the work by professional geologists (early 1900-late 1930ies) was synthesized by M. Reinhard and
E. Wenk’s publication (1951).
