Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology & Geophysics (BMR) (now Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO)), Department of Primary Industries & Energy, Australian Government, conducted the Bowen Basin Seismic Survey during July to October 1989. The major aim of the seismic survey was to record deep seismic reflection data across the northern part of the Bowen Basin, to test geological (extensional) models for the formation of the Bowen Basin. The locations of the seismic lines were determined in consultation with exploration companies and the Department of Resources Industries (now Dept. of Minerals & Energy),Queensland State Government. The requirement that the seismic lines be targeted andconstrained to follow a proposed geological corridor was a controlling factor in thepositioning of the seismic lines. The deep seismic reflection survey by the BMR recorded 254 km of 8-fold CDPseismic data, along three seismic lines. Line BMR89.B01, 157 km in length, crossed major features including the Comet Ridge, Bowen Basin, Duaringa Basin and Gogango OverfoldedZone. Line BMR89.B02 was recorded as an easterly extension of Line BMR89.B01, positioned further north due to ease of access. Line BMR89.B03 was positioned to providea north-south line crossing inferred transfer faults of the geological corridor followed by LineBMR89.B01. One expanding spread consisting of 9 shots was recorded on Line BMR89.B01centred at SP 2025 with maximum offsets of 25.6 km. Gravity observations were made at 480 m intervals on all seismic lines.
