Abstract

A seismic reflection traverse was shot over the Deep Well Anticline, Myroodah, WA, between August and October, 1954. The anticline had been geologically mapped at the surface and closure was suspected in sediments of the Liveringa Fonnation. The selsmic results showed that the anticlinal structure becomes more pronounced in depth and extends to a depth of 24,000 feet. Further seismic work is recommended to delineate the structure and prove closure.

Lineage

.As pavt of the general oil search programme of the Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics in the Kimberley Division of Western Australia, the Geophysical Section has a programme of geophysical surveys. As part of this programme a seismic reflection survey was made along one traverse, approximately north-south, across the Deep Well Antioline on Myroodah Station. The traverse, which was approximately 16 miles long,crossed Licence to Prospect No.l5H held by Associated Freney Oil Fields, N.L. and extended in both directions into Licence to Prospect No. 30H held by West Australian Petroleum Company, N.L.
