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.

Lineage

Since 1956, the Bureau of Mineral Resources has been carrying out reconnaissance geological and geophysical investigations of the Georgina Basin. The geological investigations have included a stratigraphic drilling program as well as the usual mapping, etc., and the geophysical investigations have consisted of aeromagnetic, gravity and seismic work. The objective of the 1965 seismic survey was to obtain regional information on a large area in the southern part of the Georgina Basin which would assist in the interpretation of existing geological, gravity and aeromagnetic data in the area, with particular reference to petroleum prospects.
