Abstract

A joint project between the Geology Department of the Australian National University and the Geophysics Division of the Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics was conducted to investigate the crustal structure underlying the Tumut Trough, NSW. The objective of this survey was to image the bounding faults of the Tumut Trough, in order to test various geological models which have been proposed for its formation. Forty five kilometres of nominal a-fold common mid-point (CMP) seismic reflection data were collected in the two week recording period of the ANU vacation, from the 4-16 May. The traverse was chosen to cross the trough perpendicular to strike given the constraint of using existing roads and tracks. The seismic traverse started a km NNE of Adjungbilly and finished 3 km SW of Midway.

Lineage

The idea of a seismic survey across the Tumut Trough had been proposed before, and 1ilaS included as one of the Australian Continental Reflection Profiling (ACORP) programs which were proposed by the Lithospheric Transect Studies of the Australian continent (LITSAC) committee, as discussed by Moss and Goleby (1985). The BMR program for the use of the SERCEL SN368 seismic aquisition system suggested that a short field trial near Canberra for the SN368 would be advantageous before the planned canning Basin survey, to investigate intermittent equipment failure which had been identified during earlier test at Millmerran, Queensland (Johnstone and others, 1987) and the Southeast Queensland survey of 1986 CWake-Dyster & Barton, in prep.). On this basis, the Geology Department, AND submitted a proposal to the AND Faculty Research Grant Scheme to fund a portion of the cost of a seismic survey across the Tumut Trough. A faculty research grant was awarded to the Geology Department, and subsequently, the BMR agreed to fund the remaining cost of this survey.
