Abstract

Trace Energy Services was contracted by the Australian National Seismic Imaging Resource (ANSIR) to conduct the WA seismic 2004 survey in the eastern & northern Goldfields region of Western Australia. There were 148.59 km of 2D seismic reflection data recorded, 137.54 km over 29 traverses using Litton 315 Paystars and 11.05 km over 5 traverses using a single IVI Minivib as source. All lines were situated within the lease boundaries of gold mining companies, namely, Sons of Gwalia (Tarmoola & Gwalia) (L165), Placer Dome (Kanowna Belle, Wallaby, Granny Smith, Lancefield & Mt Morgans) (L166), Anglo Gold (Sunrise Dam) (L167) and Goldfields (St Ives at Kambalda) (L168).

Lineage

Lines 04PD-W1 to 04PD-W3 Line 1 at the Wallaby deposit is designed to test the strike extensions of the ENE striking 'Thets Fault' and other potential parallel and possibly mineralised structures. The surface trace of this fault is approximately 500m from the northern margin of the pit. Line 2 is to test the down plunge extension of the Wallaby orebody to the SSE of the pit. It is planned to reshoot either of these lines with the ANSIR minivib to experiment with a higher frequency seismic source that may provide higher resolution seismic images on the upper 1 to 2 km. ~10 km of seismic is planned over 2 lines with an additional 5 km of line subject to planning by Placer geologists. Lines 04PD-KB1 to 04PD-KB3 Lines 1 and 3 at Kanowna Belle are to test strike extensions of the ENE striking 'Fitzroy Fault' and other potential parallel structures. The surface trace of this fault is through the northern margin of the pit. Line 2 is designed to test the dip direction of the NW-SE striking 'Kanowna Shear' which has its surface expression on the western side of the pit margin. This line also tests the down plunge extension of the orebody. It is anticipated that the geometry and depth of intrusive stocks and sills may also be imaged by these lines. In addition line 1 will be reshot with the ANSIR minivib to experiment with a higher frequency seismic source that may provide higher resolution seismic images on the upper 1 to 2 km. ~16.5 km of seismic is planned over 3 lines.
