Abstract

New magnetotelluric data suggest the Perth basin is as much as 14 km deep in the Dandaragan Trough, reducing to 2 km deep over the Beagle Ridge. The Darling Fault is associated with a conductivity anomaly and this suggests the fault may be a control on fluid flow in the basin. Conductors in the deep basin may be due to increased permeability or temperature and therefore may warrant further investigation as geothermal targets. Declaration
