Abstract

Heat flow data across Australia are sparse, with around 150 publicly-available data-points. The heat flow data are unevenly distributed and mainly come from studies undertaken by the Bureau of Mineral Resources (BMR) and the Research School Earth Sciences at the Australian National University in the 1960s and 1970s. Geoscience Australia has continued work started under the federally-funded Onshore Energy Security Program (OESP), collecting data to add to the heat flow coverage of the continent. This report presents temperature, natural gamma and thermal conductivity data for eight boreholes across Australia. Temperature logging was performed down hole with temperatures recorded at intervals less than 20 cm. Samples of drill core were taken from each well and measured for thermal conductivity at Geoscience Australia. One dimensional, conductive heat flow models for the boreholes are presented here. These new determinations will add to the 53 already released by Geoscience Australia under the OESP, totalling 61 determinations added to the Australian continental heat flow dataset since 2007.
