Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources carried out a total of .12 crew months of reconnaissance and experimental seismic work in the Boulia - Bedourie area of the southeastern Georgina Basin in western Queensland during 1963-1964. The results show that the Toko Syncline extends south-eastwards under Mesozoic sediments, alluvial cover, and sand at least as far as the Sandringham - Lake Wickamunna area. In the area east of Pulchera, Waterhole, the Toko Syncline was shown to contain up to about 15,000 ft of Palaeozoic and Mesozoic sediments and there was evidence of a considerable thickness of Proterozoic sediments beneath these. The cross-sectional shape of the Toko Syncline was defined, except for its western margin where results were poor and structure complex.

Lineage

During the winter months of both 1963 and 1964 the Bureau of Mineral Resources (BMR) carried out programmes of reconnaissance and experimental seismic work in the south-eastern part of the Georgina Basin in Queensland near the Northern Territory border. The survey area is remote and generally arid. The country varies from flat clay pans and gently undulating gibber country to the red sand ridge country of the Simpson Desert in the vicinity of the Mulligan River and west of it.
