The authors of the previous paper (Selby et al. 1971) kindly allowed us to see their manuscript, prior to publication. They have made a significant contribution to Bay of Plenty late Quaternary stratigraphy in recognising established ash beds in the coastal terrace sequence at Waihi Beach (Kear & Waterhouse, 1961). This brief note acknowledges their work, and uses their data to produce an alternative age interpretation, that implies broad dates for the formation of each of the coastal terraces and for the Hamilton Ash.
