Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources carried out a seismic survey of four months' duration in the Carpentaria Basin, North Queensland, in the second half of 1958. The survey showed that the Carpentaria Basin deepens gradually from the south, east, and west towards the southeastern corner of the Gulf of Carpentaria. The maximum thickness of sediments measured was about 1000 metres near Rutland Plains in the north of the survey area. It was found that gravity anomalies in the area do not correlate with basement relief.
