Abstract

A seismic survey using Australian National Seismic Imaging Resource (ANSIR) Hemi60 Vibroseis vehicles, ARAM24 acquisition equipment and Pelton controllers was carried in the Curnamona province of South Australia over two periods, August 2003 and July 2004. A total of 197.6 km of 2-D data was collected to 18 seconds two way time over a single line at 60 fold CDP coverage. The project was undertaken to meet the objectives of ANSIR proposal 03-02R as lodged by researchers from Primary Industries and Resource, South Australia (PIRSA), Office of Minerals, Energy and Petroleum, SA. The principal scientific objective of this survey was to provide a regional crustal seismic image of the Curnamona Province. This dataset will assist in the understanding of the geological architecture and resource potential of the region particularly in areas under cover. This line links with a seismic transect in the Broken Hill Block undertaken by Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO) in 1996 and provides a future opportunity for an eventual east-west continuation across the Adelaide Geosyncline and the Gawler Craton. The survey was funded by PIRSA, Office of Minerals, Energy and Petroleum, SA and the Predictive Minerals Discovery Cooperative Research Centre (pmd*CRC) with project supervision undertaken by ANSIR and in-kind support from Geoscience Australia (GA).
