Smith, E.R., 1961. Broome seismic reflection survey, Western Australia 1954-55. Record  1961/057. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources conducted a seismic reflection survey of a small area near Broome, W.A., during 1954 and1955. It was part of a general investigation of the Canning Basin and was aimed at determining the distribution of sediments south of the Fenton Fault. The seismic work indicated a sedimentary thickness of at least 6000 feet, and probably as much as 10,000 feet could be expected. It also showed that the subsurface formations are probably folded and faulted
