A seismic reflection survey extending over 634 kilometres has revealed the potential for significant discoveries of energy and mineral resources in South Australia and the Northern Territory.

The survey was a collaborative project between Geoscience Australia, Primary Industry and Resources South Australia, AuScope and the Northern Territory Geological Survey to obtain images of the geology deep beneath the earth surface.

Further information is available in the Minister for Resources and Energy, the Hon Martin Ferguson AM, MP, media release and in the GOMA (Gawler Craton, Officer Basin- Musgrave Province -Amadeus Basin) Seismic and MT Worksop 2010 extended abstracts.
