Summary
  • Unknown
  • A reconnaissance aeromagnetic survey was conducted in 1961 by Aero Service (Bahamas) Ltd for Delhi Australian Petroleum Ltd. The survey covered a part of the Great Artesian Basin in the north-eastern corner of South Australia and adjacent areas in Queensland (see Fig. 1). The project area lies within Oil Exploration Licences Nos 20 and 21 (South Australia) and Authorities to Prospect Nos 66 P and 67 P (Queensland). The purpose of the survey was to determine the depth and configuration of the pasin within the survey area and to infer structural conditions at the basement surface which, if reflected in the overlying sedimentary section, could provide conditions favourable for the accumulation of oil or gas. The survey was carried out using a Gulf Research and Development Company Mark III total field magnetometer of the self-orienting saturable core fluxgate type mounted in a tail boom installation on a Piper Apache aircraft. Navigation was by visual reference to 163,360 and 1253,440 scale uncontrolled photo-mosaics and the actual flight path was recorded by an Aeropath 35 mm continuous strip film camera. A Gulf Research and Development Company storm monitor magnetometer was operated on the ground so that aeromagnetic data recorded during magnetic storms could be discarded. The data obtained during the Isurvey were compiled and interpreted in the Philadelphia, Pa., office of Aero Service Corporlation. Flying commenced on 1st April and was completed on 8th May, 1961. A total of 13,777 line-miles of traverses and tie lines was flown at a barometric altitude of 1500 feet above sea level. Traverses were oriented east-west at intervals of five miles, and tie lines were flown north-south across the survey area at intervals of twenty miles. The westernmost tie line was extended southwards from the southern boundary of the survey area for a distance of approximately 125 miles into the area of a previous reconnaissance survey carried out for Santos Limited. This survey consisted of approximately 2000 line-miles of traverse in the Lake Torrens area of South Australia. The traverses were arranged in a rectangular grid pattern consisting of five east-west lines at 35-mile intervals which were crossed by six north-south tie lines. The flight altitude was maintained at 1500 feet above sea level except in the south-central part of the area where it was increased to 4000 feet barometric elevation above sea level. A set of fourteen reconnaissance aeromagnetic traverses totalling 8721 line-miles had been flown previously by the Bureau of Mineral Resources across the Great Artesian Basin during 1958. Portions of several of these traverses cross the main survey area, but the majority are located in the peripheral areas. The flight altitude was maintained at 1500 feet above ground level.
