Abstract

A reconnaissance seismograph survey of the Wandagee area of the Carnarvon Basin (see Figs 1, 2) was carried out by Geophysical Service International, Party 621, for West Australian Petroleum Pty Limited between November, 1961 and February, 1962. The project area falls within Permit to Explore 28H. The survey was designed to map the structure and the stratigraphy of the Wandagee Ridge (South) area of the Carnarvon Basin. The survey commenced on 9th November, 1961, and terminated on 7th February, 1962, after covering 115 1/2 miles of reflection traverse and 33 1/.3 miles of refraction traverse. The results of these reflection and refraction surveys were combined with other geophysical data to produce an overall interpretation. There are two distinct areas of interest separated by the Wandagee Fault. The Wandagee Fault is a large down-to-the-east normal fault in the pre-Cretaceous section, with reverse movement occurring later than the Cretaceous. Devonian rocks are present at shallow depth on the west side of the fault, but there are probably 10,000 feet of Permian on the east side. East of the Wandagee Fault the north-south trending Quail Anticline was partly delineated. It is suggested that this anticline closes in Permian and perhaps in Carboniferous Devonian horizons. The geoIhysical operation undertaken in the Wandagee Ridge area, Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia, was subsidized under the Petroleum Search Subsidy Act 1959.
