Abstract

The Goonumbla district near Parkes, central NSW, is a Palaeozoic circular volcanic zone with porphyry intrusions that have a significant exploration potential for copper-gold deposits (Perkins et aI., 1990; Heithersayet al., 1990; Clarke and Sherwin, 1990; Hooper et al., 1996). Aeromagnetic and gravity surveying map a large number of isolated, circular features within this district which are associated with porphyry domes. However, the general geological tectonic structure within which those porphyry domes were formed is still quite unknown. Seismic profiling between some of the main porphyry locations could help constrain the geometrical relation of those domes and map the monzonite basement structure and any fault zones.
