Abstract

At the request of the Government Geologist of Western Australia some gravity observations were made near Bullsbrook, a small township on the Perth-Geraldton road, 27 miles from Perth. It was thought that the gravity observations would help resolve a problem connected with the water supply of the township on which the advice of the Geological Survey of Western Australian had been sought. Because the gravity method had proved successful elsewhere in determining the thickness of sediments overlying dense basement rocks, it was though that some estimate of the thickness of sediments underlying Bullsbrook could be made by using the method. This report gives an account of the operations and their results.
