Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics (BMR) did a reconnaissance seismic survey in the central portion of the Bowen Basin in November, 1960. The objectives of the survey were to determine the structure of the Basin and the thickness of sediments by traversing from the western margin of the Basin near Anakie to the eastern margin east of Duaringa. Two other seismic surveys conducted in this Bowen Basin are Cooroorah Anticline seismic survey in 1959 (survey L037) and 254km seismic survey near the towns of Duaringa and Blackwater (survey L129).

Lineage

From 30th July to 23rd November 1960 the Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics did a reconnaissance seismic survey in the central portion of the Bowen Basin, where the search for oil is being pursued. The objectives of the survey were to determine the structure of the basin and the thickness of sediments by traversing the basin from the western margin of the Basin near Anakie to the eastern margin east of Duaringa. This location for an east-west traverse across the Basin was chosen because of its central position in the Basin and because of the excellent access provided by the highway from Rockhampton to Emerald.
