Smith, E.R., 1960. L022 La Grange seismic reflection survey, WA, 1955. Record  . Geoscience Australia, Canberra.

Abstract

A Seismic reflection survey was conducted by the Bureau of Mineral Resources during 1955 7 in the La Grange area of Western Australia. The object orthe Survey was to investigate the sedimentary development of the Canning Basin south of the Fenton Fault. A sedimentary section of at least 4,400 feet and possibly as much as 7,000 to 8,000 feet was indicated. Although no evidence of an angular unconformity was obtained, there is probably a change in the type of sedimentation at 2,760 feet.

Lineage

During September of 1955, the seismic party of the Bureau of Mineral Resources conducted a seismic reflection survey in the La Grange area of Western Australia. This was part of ageneral reconnaissance programme undertaken by the Bureau in the Canning Basin during 19550 Other surveys were conducted at Christmas Creek, Barnes Flow, Langey Crossing and Broome. The object of the La Grange survey was to investigate the development of the Canning Basin south of the Fenton Faults where little information is available from surface geology. La Grange is situated on the north-west coast of Australia, approximately 60 rifles south-west of Broome.
