Robertson, C.S. & Moss, F.J., 1959. L035 Carpentaria Basin seismic survey, QLD, 1958. Record  . Geoscience Australia, Canberra.

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.

Lineage

From July to December, 1958 the Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics carried out a seismic survey in the Carpontarla Basin at the request of Associated Australian Oilfields N.L. supported by the Queensland Mines Department. Seismic work was also requested in the same region by Associated Freney Oilfields N.L., but this company relinquished its Authority to Prospect before the survey took place.
