Abstract

The Australian Geological Survey Organisation recorded a regional seismic traverse across the eastern Yilgarn Craton in 1991 in order to map the major structures in the region at depth. The traverse was 213 km long, and oriented approximately east-west. The green stone belts of the Archaean Yilgarn Craton in Western Australia, and particularly those near Kalgoorlie, are host to world class gold and nickel deposits. Therefore, knowledge of the geological structure at depth should play an important role in the exploration models.

Lineage

The Kalgoorlie Seismic Transect is a 213 km long deep seismic reflection profile oriented approximately east-west 30 km to the north of Kalgoorlie. The seismic profile was designed to cross many of the main features of the greenstone belts within the Eastern Goldfields Province, as well as the boundary with the adjacent Southern Cross Province to the west. This study forms part of the Eastern Goldfields NGMA project undertaken jointly by the Australian Geological Survey Organisation and the Geological Survey of Western Australia. The National Geoscience Mapping Accord, endorsed by the Australian (now Australia and New Zealand) :Minerals and Energy Council in August 1990 is a joint Commonwealth/Statefferritory initiative to produce, using modern technology, a new generation of geoscientific maps, data sets and other information of strategically important regions of Australia over the next 20 years.
