Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources made three seismic surveys in the Ngalia Basin, Northern Territory, during 1967 to 1969 as part of a comprehensive geological and geophysical investigation of the structure and stratigraphy of the basin. L084 is the second survey done in 1968. The project was aimed at delineating the configuration of the basin, within which outcrops are sparse, and providing information pertaining to its depositional and tectonic history. Investigation of the extent of Lower Palaeozoic sedimentation was considered to be important in assessment of the petroleum prospects of the basin.

Lineage

From May to December 1968 BMR carried out a reconnaissance seismic survey over a large part of the Ngalia Basin. Pour main north-south traverses were surveyed. These were located near Naoperby Creek, Mount Allan, Mount Doreen and Waite Creek. The survey was a continuation of the seismic programme begun in 1967. In 1967 the seismic party .carried out work along a north-south traverse across the central Part of the baSin in the Mount Doreen area. Part of the 1968 programme consistedof extending the main 1967 northsouth traverse with the object of completely crossing the basin.
