Abstract

During 1969, the Mundaring Geophysical Observatory collected seismic refraction data from explosions used by the Bureau of Mineral Resources No. 2 seismic party in the southwest of Western Australia. The seismic party exploded 37 charges up to 4,500 kilograms on a traverse from Balladonia through Kalgoorlie to Perth. Two mobile Willmore seismographs and permanent seismographs at Mundaring and Kalgoorlie recorded the resultant seismic waves.
