Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics made an aeromagnetic survey of the on-shore area of the Gippsland Basin, Victoria, in 1951-52 and of the off-shore area in 1956. The anomaly trends of the aeromagnetic map can be correlated with several known geological structures in the Basin, some of which can be traced by their magnetic characteristics into the deeper parts of the Basin. A contour map of estimated depths to magnetic basement rock shows a trough east of Lake Wellington containing probably 15,000 feet of sediments. Depth estimates in parts of the south-western corner of the Basin are uncertain because of the presence of magnetic basalt flows in the sedimentary sequence
