Southern Thomson Core Viewing Workshop

Wednesday, 9 May 2018, 9.00am–2:30pm
WB Clarke Geoscience Centre

947-953 Londonderry Road, Londonderry

The workshop will include presentations and viewing of core from the Southern Thomson Project stratigraphic drilling program conducted in 2017. Seven drill holes in NSW successfully sampled basement rocks of the Thomson Orogen, beneath the Eromanga Basin, in the Bourke–Hungerford area of remote northwest NSW (another five holes were completed in Queensland). The drilling program was part of the collaborative Southern Thomson Project between the Geological Survey of New South Wales, the Geological Survey of Queensland and Geoscience Australia.
