Abstract

The remote Eastern frontiers project aimed to provide a geological and petroleum prospectivity assessement of the Faust Capel Basins. Funded through Australian Governement Initiatives (Energy Security Program). The Faust Capel Basins survey GA-2436/ TAN0713 was acquired by Geoscience Australia onboard the RV Tangaroa (operated by NIWA) from the 6th of October to the 22nd of November 2007. The geographic range stretched from Wellington to the Faust Capel Basins to Lord Howe Island and back to Wellington. Approximately 8,945 sailing km of multibeam bathymetry was acquired. The high resolution bathymetry data imaged seafloor features in unprecedented detail, revealing the effects of recent magmatic activity and fluid migration on the seafloor. It also produced a new image of a flat topped unexplored seamount. A member of the Lord Howe Rise seamount chain.
