Abstract

The preliminary investigation was made when the Bureaut s seismic party was held up by flooded rivers, while on its way t o Christmas Creek in May, 1954. Results show that the seismic aethod is applicable to the Broome area, and that a sedimentary section of the order of 12,500 feet exists. They further show that a syncline and anticline not known from the surface geology may possibly exist at depth.
