Abstract

The Tanami region of the Northern Territory is a major Australian gold province and contains the world class Callie gold deposit. Shallow sediments largely obscure basement host rock, so the application of geophysical techniques has become an important mapping tool for the further exploration and development of the mine. Acquisition of seismic data along a single line across the deposit will test the understanding of key structures, some of which are related to mineralisation. By extending the line beyond the boundaries of the currently well understood mine area, we hope to illuminate continuations of stratigraphic and structural trends. These structures include: fault geometries, relationships of stratigraphic packages to controlling structures and stratigraphic thickness. The survey is designed to provide data to image to approximately 2km depth. Integration the data from this project with that of the Tanami Seismic Reflection Acquisition Project will provide a broader understanding of the structural and stratigraphic frame work of both the mine area and the Tanami region.
