Abstract

Collie is the only developed coalfield in Western Australia. Between June 1946 and April 1947 a comprehensive geological and geophysical survey was carried out to determine the boundary of the basin, its general configuration and the depth (thickness) of the sediments overlying the basement. The aim of the survey was to define those areas where there was sufficient thickness of sediments to enable drilling to be carried out with a reasonable expectation of proving additional reserves of coal. The geology of the area, application of the gravity method, results and interpretations, and drilling recommendations are discussed in this report.
