Abstract

A seismic reflection survey was carried out in the Parish of Darriman, Victoria. The survey was planned to investigate a gravity anomaly, which may be an indication of a structure within the sedimentary section favourable to the accumulation of oil or natural gas. For the most part reflections were exceptionally good, and it was possible to trace one reflecting layer over most of the area. Contouring showed the presence of an anticlinal structure, plunging to the east, but rising and broadening to the west. On the flat crest of the structure, there is probable closure in two places. The thickness of the Tertiary sediments may be a maximum of 6,000 feet, but may be only 3,000 feet on the crest of the structure and 4,000 feet on the flanks.
