Abstract

This report refers to a seismic reflection survey conducted near the town of Muttaburra in Queensland, between 16th October and 12th December, 1959, by Geoseismic (Australia) Ltd, for the Artesian Basin Oil Company Pty Ltd. The purpose of the survey was to determine the nature of any structures present and the thickness of the sedimentary rocks. A number of isolated reconnaissance lines were laid and the shot-points were placed at one or two mile intervals. The records were computed by jump correlation. One structural feature found as a result of the reconnaissance traverses was investigated by more detailed work. A northerly plunging anticline, with easterly dip contrary to the regional westerly dip was delineated on two reflecting horizons. The relief due to the easterly dip is approximately 250 feet on the deeper horizon and 200 feet on the shallower horizon. To investigate the area fully, it would be necessary to carry out a further seismic reflection survey using the continuous profiling method of recording and computing.
