Wiebenga, W. & Hawkins, L.V., 1954. Seismic refraction survey of the Wayatinah "A" power station site and penstock lines, Tasmania. Record  1954/068. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Details and results are given of a seismic refraction survey made at the request of the Hydro-Electric Commission of Tasmania, to investigate the proposed site for a power station with penstock lines and tail race. The power station is part of the Wayatinah "A" project. The object of the survey was to determine the thickness of the alluvial gravel formation on the river flat, the weathered section of the sandstone and the dolerite, and to indicate the presence of shear zones. Three traverses parallel to the proposed penstock line, and 100 feet apart, and three cross traverses were surveyed in January and February, 1954. After completion of the original survey two additional traverses were surveyed on the location chosen for the power station, penstock lines and tail race site.
