Abstract

The Bowen Basin, in Central Queensland, is one of the sedimentary basins in which the search for oil is being pursued. In the second half of 1960 the Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics did a seismic survey lasting four months in the central portion of the Bowen Basin. This Record describes briefly the work done and the principal results obtained. A single, discontinuous seismic traverse was surveyed across the Basin in an east-west direction. The results provided information on the structure and minimum thicknesses of sediments in the area.
