Abstract

Following a month of preliminary experimental seismic work in the latter part.of 1964 the Bureau of Mineral Resources carried out a reconnaissance seismic survey of the southern part of the Georgina Basin, mainly in the Northern Territory, from April to October 1965. In most areas reflections proved very difficult to obtain. A number of different techniques were tried, including various shot andgeophone pattern arrangements, noise testing,collinear offset shooting, airshooting and multiple coverage, but no technique was found which was generally successful in providing useful reflections. The seismic results tended to confirm gravity indications that there is a shelf area between BMR 12 Bore and Tobermory and provided no indications that there are deep Palaeozoic troughs similar to the Toko -Syncline in the survey area.
