Williams, L.W., 1956. L018 Poole Range-Christmas Creek seismic reflection and refraction survey, WA, 1955.. Record  . Geoscience Australia, Canberra.

Abstract

A seismic reflection survey was made to the south-west, south and east of the Poole Range Structure, Kimberley Division, W.A. as an extension of a previous seismic survey. The results obtained confirm the surface information and show the existence of an anticlinal structure l the axis of which plunges to the east and whose axial plane probably dips to the south. A total thickness of sediments of the order of 20,000 feet is shown. Some slight evidence of deep faulting down to 10,000 feet was recorded, but is not conclusive. Insufficient evidence was obtained to select a site for a test bore, but further seismic work is not recommended at present.

Lineage

The work described in this report is a continuation of the seismic work done in the Poole Range area by the Geophysical Section of the Bureau of Mineral Resources in 1953 (Smith, 1955). For the survey described in this report the camp was established approximately 3 miles south of Christmas Creek Homestead and headquarters were maintained there for the duration of the survey, from June to August, 1954. The object of the survey was to find the total thickness and structure of the sedimentary rocks at selected points oft the eastern, southern and south-western sides of the Poole Range Structure. It was known from the previous survey (Smith, 1955) that there was little likelihood of reflections being recorded near the axis of the structure.
