Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources Seismic Party No. 2 conducted a survey from 15th May to 25th August 1961 in the Amadeus Basin. Reflection and refraction traverses were shot at intervals, along or near the Alice Springs/Port Augusta railway line, from Polhill in the north to Finke in the south. In broad terms the object of the survey was to obtain across the Amadeus Basin a north-south seismic cross-section that would aid in investigating the stratigraphic cross-section and structural relations especially on the southern margin of the Basin. Access and drilling problems caused the progress of the survey to be slow. The statistics of the operation are included in three appendices. During the course of the seismic survey, the Bureau also made gravity surveys covering the area; gravity-meter readings were made along all seismic traverses.
