Abstract

Aeromagnetic and gravity surveys were made in the Tambo-Augathella area by Magellan Petroleum Corporation in 1959 and 1960 respectively. A probable fault shown in the magnetic interpretation is almost coincident with a zone of steep gravity gradients which was interpreted as indicative of a fault or of steeply dipping strata. However, the normal gravity interpretation would indicate a deeper cross-section to the south-east of this zone, whereas the magnetic interpretation suggests that the fault is downthrown to the northwest. The present survey was undertaken by the Bureau of Mineral Resources to find out which interpretation was the more probable. A reflection seismic traverse was shot at right angles to the closed gravity 'high' and across the zone of steep gravity gradients. Results show that the closed gravity 'high' is the expression of an anticline and that the zone of stoep gravity gradients is caused by steep dip to the south-east on the flank of the anticline. The gravity interpretation is therefore found to be more representative of actual conditions.
