Abstract

This report describes two gravity surveys conducted by Mines Administration Pty Ltd for The Papuan Apinaipi Petroleum Co. Ltd during the period June 1959 to October 1959. The purpose of the first survey, a detailed gravity survey over the Wira Anticline. was to confirm closure in the Wira Culmination and to obtain information on the possibility of limestone occurring in the sediments below the culmination. The other survey a regional gravity traverse from the Wira Anticline down the Purari River, was expected to extend the gravitational trends shown in the Purari area by a previous survey. No gravity anomaly was established that could be correlated with the surface geological structure of the Wira Anticline. The results indicate that the largest negative anomaly occurs east of the Purari River below the Aure Scarp Starkey has drawn similar conclusions from his gravity work which was carried out southwards along the Purari and Vailala Rivers in 1958.
