Abstract

A seismic reflection traverse on portion of the Giralia anticline was conducted by the Bereau of Mineral Resources (BMR). This work constitutes a part of a general programme of investigation which the BMR, Geology and Geophysics, has been carrying out on Permit areas held by Ampol Petroleum Ltd. in this area. The purpose of the survey is to idenfy the proposed geology structure in this region based on the previous geology surveys.

Lineage

The Giralia anticline was mapped in Mesozoic and Tertiary rocks in the North-West basin. This is basin lines in the North-West District of Western Australia between the cost and the 116th east meridian, and is otherwise bounded by latitudes 21.5 South and 26.5 South. Geologists of the BMR have been carrying out geological mapping in the basin during 1948-1951. The existence of anticlinal structures in the Mesozoic and Tertiary rocks has been known for many years but they have never been mapped in detail. Therefore, a seismic reflection traverse on the portion of Giralia anticline was conducted.
