Abstract

The seismic survey extending over the Poole Range and Price's Creek areas and the Pinnacle Fault, near the north-eastern boundary of the Fitzroy Basin. The survey was corducted during the winter of 1953. The Poole Range Dome has been mapped in outcropping rocks of Permian age, but its western closure is notcertain. It is at the south-eastern end of a line of anticlinal folding which includes the St. George Range Dome and Nerrima Dome. The target beds for an oil test bore would be the Devonian and/or Ordovician rocks, which crop out on tbe north-eastern side of the Pinracle Fault, ard over which the Permian rocks of the Poole Range are believed to lie unconformably. The seismic results indicate a thick section of sediments on the south-western side of the Pinnacle Fault and show a fair defree of conformity between shallow and deep reflections on the northern flank of the dome. Further investigation was made in 1954 around the flanks of the dome, to determine whether or not the domal structure persists at depth, but the interpretation of the results of the 1954 survey is not yet complete. The Ordovician roeks on tbe northeastern side of the Pinnacle fault are shown to have a probable unexposed thickness of about 900 feet.
