Abstract

A seismic investigation of the eastern margin of the Galilee Basin in Central Queensland was made by the Bureau of Mineral Resources in 1971. A seismic traverse was recorded between Lake Galilee No. 1 well and outcrops of the Drummond Group 80 km to the east. This area is covered by Cainozoic sediments and no seismic network has been attempted before the present survey. The area is of economic interest, as oil was recorded in a drill stem test in Lake Galilee No. 1 well in Carboniferous sediments in the interval 2890 to 2910 m and there are coal measures in the Upper Permian. Knowledge of the structure of the basin margin to the east of the well could reveal oil traps and economically mineable coal deposits. For the other two Galilee Basin surveys, please see L106 and L108.

Lineage

From August to November 1971, the Bureau of Mineral Resources (BMR) conducted a seismic survey east of Lake ·Galilee in the Galilee Basin, Central Queensland. The area of the survey lay partly within petroleum exploration title ATP76P held jointly by Exoil N.L. (70%) and Transoil N.L. (30%), but most of the seismic traverse was within the vacant area to. the east
