New Northwest Queensland Regional Seismic Traverse Available

The Geological Survey of Queensland announced the release of the final processed sections of the recent deep crustal seismic reflection survey at this year’s Digging Deeper 2015 seminar.

Line 14GA-CF1 was acquired in 2014, beginning at Longreach and running along major roads through Winton, Kynuna and Julia Creek before ending just north of Fourways for a total line length of 670 km.

NW Qld Seismic Traverses

Line 14GA-CF1 was acquired in 2014, beginning at Longreach and running along major roads through Winton, Kynuna and Julia Creek before ending just north of Fourways for a total line length of 670 km.

Funded from the Greenfields Prospectivity Initiative, the survey was conducted to improve the understanding of the crustal architecture in the region, as well as promoting greenfields exploration in northwest Queensland.

Images and SEG-Y files of both the migrated and stacked section can be downloaded from DNRM’s online data delivery system QDEX Data now (not available in Internet Explorer).

Processing is ongoing for lines 14GA-CF2 and CF3, with an expected public release date of final SEG-Ys by May 2016. However, we are making the raw unprocessed data available now so that companies can do their own processing of the data in areas they consider to have high exploration potential. The raw data for 14GA-CF1 is also available for reprocessing.
