Abstract

The seismic reflection survey was conducted from 16th to 18th March 1999. The data were recorded with a Geometrics Strataview R48 seismography of Macquarie University in roll-along mode. The Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO, now Geoscience Australia) provided an IVI Mini-Vibrator truck through the Australian National Seismic Imaging Resource (ANSIR) facility as a seismic energy source. The objective of this seismic survey was to help resolve the structural relationship between porphyry domes and interbedded monzonite and volcanoclastic complexes.

Lineage

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 deposites. 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. Some 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.
