Abstract

A seismic survey of the Cooroorah Anticline near Comet, Queensland, was conducted on behalf of Associated Freney Oilfields N.L. to assist the Company to select a site for a deep stratigraphic test bore. Sedimentary rocks are considered to extend down to at least 6000 ft and probably to 10,000 ft, but there is no seismic evidence to indicate that depth to basement is not considerably greater than 10,000 ft. An unconformity in the cross-section is indicated at a depth of 4000 to 5000 ft along the axis of the Anticline, and between 6000 and 7000 ft on the flanks. The geologically mapped Big Churchyard Culmination was confirmed to a depth of approximately 6000 ft, and another culmination was defined to the south along the axis of the Anticline. The geologically mapped Redrock Culmination does not persist at depth but may be associated with a small anticlinal feature whose axis is about 2 miles east of the surface structure. Two possible sites were indicated for a stratigraphic test bore.
