Abstract

The Gunnedah Basin and Cobar Basin Seismic Test Survey was conducted by the Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics (BMR) (now Geoscience Australia) during the early part of 1989. The objective of the survey was to test the suitability of the seismic reflection technique for proposed regional deep reflection seismic lines in the Gunnedah Basin and Cobar Basin. The major emphasis of the test survey was to assess the feasibility of acquiring shallow and deep seismic reflections in order to examine various geological models of bounding faults and basin structure.

Lineage

The Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology & Geophysics (BMR) (now Geoscience Australia) conducted seismic reflection test lines at five locations within the Gunnedah Basin and three locations within the Cobar Basin during April and May of 1989. The objective of the test seismic survey was to determine recording parameters along segments of proposed regional seismic lines across the Gunnedah Basin and the Cobar Basin, in an effort to acquire shallow and deep seismic reflection data. The proposed deep seismic reflection profiles were positioned to test geological models for major bounding faults and their relationship to formation of sedimentary basins and mineral deposits in the areas.
