Abstract

The Cobar Basin in central western New South Wales is a mineral-rich Early Devonian basin typical of those that characterize the Siluro-Devonian history of the Lachlan Orogen of southeastern Australia. One hundred and seventy kilometres of seismic profiling in three lines across the basin have shown it to be asymmetrical in shape with an east-dipping western margin that is steeper than the moderately west-dipping eastern margin. Maximum basin thickness is around 6 km, but there are significant thickness changes which reflect the effect of synsedimentary faulting. Seismic profiling suggests that the basin deformed by thin-skinned tectonics. -from Authors
