Abstract

A seismic survey was made in the.Ooraminna area of the Amadus Basin 9 Northern Territory 9 by a seismic party of the Bureau of Mineral Resources 9 Geology and Geophysics 9 between 6th July and ,29th August 1962. Reflection traverses were recorded between Deep Well and Alice Springs and across the culmination of the Ooraminna Anticline l and a refraction depth probe was recorded on the crest of the Ooraminna Anticline. The purpose of the survey was to obtain information on the structure of the Basin in the eastern part of the Missionary Plain, and on the structure of the Ooraminna. The Basin was shown to be generally synclinal between Deep Well and Alice Springs with a maximum sediment thickness Of 20,000 feet north of the Ooraminna Anticline. Seismic evidence suggested that the uplift at Deep Well and the Ooraminna Anticline have resulted from thickening in a deep formation, which has been tentatively identified as the Bitter Springs Formation. The survey was unsuccessful in relating reflectors in the crosssections with outcropping formations in the MacDonnell Ranges and on the Ooraminna Anticline.
