Abstract

A seismic reflection survey was conducted on behalf of L.H. Smart Oil Exploration Company Limited by Geosurveys of Australia Ltd during 1959. The survey consisted of a number of shot-points placed at one or two-mile intervals along lines across the Canaway anticline, the Pinkilla anticline, and the Chesson (Orient) anticline of the Grey Range. The purpose of the survey was to provide detailed information of the subsurface structure of anticlines indicated by surface geology. The survey was interpreted with reference to geology known from the Bulgroo bore on the western limb of the Canaway anticline. Seismic operations clearly indicated that surface fold structure continues and is enhanced with depth; the anticlines are caused by buried ridges, probably with Precambrian core-rocks. Permian to Cretaceous sediments are draped over these ridges and have a minimum thickness of about 4,000 it across the Canaway anticlinal crest; in the adjoining trough syncline, they thicken rapidly to 10,000 it or more.
