Abstract

The Capricorn Orogen Passive source Array (COPA) is the passive source seismic component of a major Science and Industry Endowment Fund (SIEF) project, "The distal footprints of giant ore systems: Capricorn case study". COPA focuses on the deep crustal and shallow lithospheric structure in the Capricorn Orogen with the aim to better understand the tectonic amalgamation of the Western Australian Craton. The objective of COPA is to produce 3D multiple scale seismic images across the orogeny, that together with other geological and geophysical datasets help constrain the timing and kinematic evolution of Capricorn Orogen’s fault zones, and their role in the metallogenic history.
