Abstract

Reflection and refraction seismic work was done in 1960 to complete a reconnaissance survey which was commenced in 1959 across the northern part of the Surat Basin. A reconnaissance line now extends in an easterly direction from 30 miles west of Surat to Jondaryan, and this line is also tied to the geologically well-known Roma area. Two good marker horizons have been established in the seismic work - one a strong reflector and the other a refractor in which the velocity averages 19,000 ft/sec and which may represent basement. A deep trough of sediments, possibly 20,000 ft thick at Meandarra, exists between Surat and Tara, and there is a large uplift west of Tara. The eastern margin of this large trough is 12 miles east of Tara, but sediments about 4000 ft thick probably continue to the east, at least as far as Jondaryan.
