1 Potential Field Interpretation of the Capricorn Orogen JAMES GOODWIN Worms, forward modelling and 3D inversion

2 Potential Field Interpretation of the Capricorn Orogen Purpose Investigate regional-scale crustal architecture Relationship between Pilbara/Capricorn/Yilgarn Compare with seismic line interpretation Interpretation Techniques Image processing Multiscale edge detection (worms) Forward modelling 3D inversion (unconstrained)

3 Potential Field Interpretation of the Capricorn Orogen Seismic line 10GA-CP1 Hamersley Ashburton Magnetics RTP Surface Geology Nanjilgardy Fault

4 Potential Field Interpretation of the Capricorn Orogen Leake Springs Metamorphics = correlative of Upper Wyloo Group (Cawood and Tyler 2004; Sheppard et al., 2007) Seismic line 10GA-CP1 Ashburton Fm Hamersley Group Collier Edmund Group Leake Springs Metamorphics

5 Potential Field Interpretation of the Capricorn Orogen Hamersley Ashburton Bouguer Gravity Gravity Worms Magnetics Worms Seismic line 10GA-CP1 Karra Well Fault (SW dipping) Baring Downs Fault

13 Potential Field Interpretation of the Capricorn Orogen Key Findings Forward models suggest the seismic line interpretation is consistent with potential field data. Hamersley Group has the potential to extend as far south as the Edmund Basin Magnetic anomalies attributed mainly to the Hamersley Group, Leake Springs Metamorphics and BIF Yilgarn-Capricorn boundary is south-dipping
