Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and geophysics (BMR) (now Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO)), Department of Primary Industries & Energy, Australian Government, conducted the Bowen Basin Seismic Survey during July to October 1989. The major aim of the seismic survey was to record deep seismic reflection data across the northern part of the Bowen Basin, to test geological (extensional) models for the formation of the Bowen Basin. The deep seismic reflection survey by the BMR recorded 254 km of eight-fold Common-Depth-Point (CDP) seismic data, along three seismic lines.

Lineage

The deep seismic reflection survey in the northern Bowen Basin developed from a project proposal instituted by the BMR.. The project proposal was aimed to further studies of the Late Palaeozoic and Mesozoic Sedimentary Basins of Eastern Australia, specifically the Gunnedah, Bowen and Surat Basins. Following distribution of the project proposal to interested parties for comment, a majority of parties considered that a high priority area for investigation should be the northern portion of the Bowen Basin. A prime objective of the project proposal was to provide an improved basis for resource exploration In the region. A better understanding of the structure and tectonic evolution of the sedimentary basins, adjacent orogens and the sedimentary architecture of the basins, were the main aims addressed by the survey.
