Abstract

The Nerrima dome is situated in an area of gentle folding 90 miles south-east of Derby in the Kimberley Division of Western Australia. The topography is essentially flat with local ridges formed over the more resistant sandstone beds of the Liveringa Formation. Outcropping formations are Permian and include the lower part of the Liveringa and the top part of the Noonkanbah Formations. The Liveringa Formation consists mainly of sandstones and grits and forms ridges which practically surround the structure; the Noonkanbah is mainly clays and limestones which have been reduced to flat plains with low outcrops of limestone and calcareous sandstone. Vertical closure of the structure is about 250 feet over an area of 30 square miles. The cores of Nerrima No. 1 Bore have been examined and at the present depth of 4271 feet the bore appears to be still in Permian rocks although no reliable interpretation of the subsurface geology at Nerrima can be made without further detailed information from areas to the north.
