The population and decay of excited states in Mg-24 have been investigated using the C-12(O-16,(CC)-C-12-C-12)alpha reaction at beam energies of 135 and 160 MeV . This measurement permitted the decay spectrum to be measured up to Mg-24 excitation energies of 70 MeV . Resonance structures were observed up to an excitation energy of 49.4 MeV and spin J=18h . The results are discussed in terms of the termination of a deformed C-12+C-12 cluster band.
