Abstract

In 1986, the Bureau of Mineral Resources (BMR) set out to rekindle exploration interest in the Great Australian Bight and to answer some of the perceived geological problems of the area, by conducting a regional framework multichannel seismic survey with follow-up sampling and heatflow work using the RfV Rig Seismic. At about the same time, the South Australian Department of Mines and Energy (SADME) commenced a project that involved re-interpreting existing company seismic data in the Duntroon Basin and other areas in South Australian waters, with a view to promoting a new round of exploration. In 1987, it was decided that BMR and SADME should pursue a joint study, with the aim of covering as much of the Great Australian Bight as possible. Areas of responsibility were allocated such that SADME concentrated on the shallow water Duntroon and Denman Basins, while BMR studied the deeper water Great Australian Bight Basin (including the Eyre Sub-basin), the Polda Trough, and the Bremer Basin further west. This folio is the principal product of the joint study. Since this report is the combined effort of two widely separated organisations, it is inevitable that there will be some differences in interpretation and style of presentation. While the editors (Stagg, Cockshell, and Hill) have endeavoured to produce a final document that is devoid of internal inconsistencies, no doubt some will still remain.
