Abstract

Newly recognised depocentres and structures in the northeastern Galilee Basin are associated with long-term passive thermal subsidence and periods of uplift. Evidence presented here shows that a contractional event in the mid-Carboniferous had an influence during late-stage development of the underlying Drummond Basin and early development of the Galilee Basin. An extensional event in the Late Carboniferous is documented by analysis of depositional patterns. Permian to mid-Triassic contractional events in the adjacent Bowen Basin had little influence in development of the Galilee Basin. Major inversion in the Middle Triassic reactivated structures and ended basin development.
