Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources made a seismic survey in the western part of the Galilee Basin in the central Queensland in 1975. The aim of the survey was to obtain basic information on the extent and thickness of the western part of the basin, which is entirely concealed beneath the Eromanga Basin. The seismic survey recorded 320 km of continuous single-coverage reflection recording and 18 km of six-fold CDP recording during 87 operating days. Two major faults were mapped. The Holberton Structure, previously known from geological mapping, corresponds to a major fault in the subsurface with up to 300 m of downthrownto the west. Another major fault appears to be a southerly continuation of the Cork Fault. For the other two Galilee Basin surveys, please see L102 and L108.

Lineage

From July to November 1975 BMR conducted a seismic survey in the Lovelle Depression in the western part of the Galilee Basin, central Queensland.The survey area lay mainly in petroleum exploration titles ATP 166P, held by US Natural Resources Australia Ltd, and ATP 211P, held by Black Giant Oil Company. A detailed gravity survey was conducted concurrently with the seismic survey; gravity observations were made at each shotpoint along the seismic traverses. The Galilee Basin, the western part of which is entirely concealed beneath the Jurassic-Cretaceous sediments of the Eromanga Basin, has been covered by gravity, aeromagnetic and numerous seismic surveys. Harrison & Bauer (1975) have reviewed the results of these surveys in the western and north eastern parts of the basin in formulating a program for the 1975 BMR survey.
