Abstract

Geoscience Australia conducted the Yilgarn-Officer-Musgrave 2D Seismic Survey. The survey involves the acquisition of seismic reflection over the Yilgarn Craton, Officer Basin and Musgrave Province of Western Australia. The survey consisted of one line, totalling 484.2 kms. The project is a collaborative project between Geoscience Australia and the Geological Survey of Western Australia and is part of the ongoing cooperation under the National Geoscience Agreement (NGA). Funding of this project is through the Western Australian Government's Royalties for Regions Exploration Incentive Scheme and Geoscience Australia's Onshore Energy Security Program. The primary objective of the project is to image the western Officer Basin, one of the Australia's underexplored sedimentary basins. In addition this survey will gather new data to improve the understanding of the Yilgarn Craton and its boundary with the Musgrave Province.
