Abstract

Trace Energy Services was contracted by the Australian National Seismic Imaging Resource (ANSIR) to conduct the Batten Trough Seismic Survey in the Northern Territory. The survey consisted of two lines totalling 127.60 kms. The data were collected in late 2002 as part of a study to examine the fundamental basin architecture of the Southern McArthur Basin and the nature of underlying basement. Much of the seismic program was designed to test geometric models in this area, including tectonostratigraphy, fault systems and basement structure. The results have wider applicability because the basin is considered to be a little deformed analogue of the Western Succession of Mt Isa.

Lineage

The Southern McArthur Basin Seismic Survey is a joint undertaking of the Northern Territory Geological Survey (NTGS), Geoscience Australia (GA) and the Predictive Mineral Discovery Cooperative Research Centre (pmd*CRC). The seismic acquisition work was undertaken by the Australian National Seismic Imaging Resource (ANSIR). AngloAmerican kindly provided financial support towards the acquisition of a short cross (02GA-BT2) line perpendicular to the main seismic line (02GA-BT1). The survey was originally called the Batten Trough Deep Seismic Survey but we now use the more correct term Southern McArthur Basin Deep Seismic Survey. All original unprocessed and processed seismic data are archived within Geoscience Australia under the title 'Batten Trough Deep Seismic Survey'.
