Reconstructing the evolution and modelling the geometry of the basement under cover

Central Flinders 3D Model location mapThis model was produced by The South Australian Centre for Mineral Exploration Under Cover (CMXUC), a collaborative research initiative of the Government of South Australia and the University of Adelaide.

The northern to central Flinders Ranges area comprise uplifted and eroded remnants of openly folded sedimentary rocks that were deposited in an intra-continental arm of the Adelaide Geosyncline during the Neoproterozoic to Early Cambrian.

Despite numerous studies, the geometry and evolution of the basin is still not well understood. 

This project aims to reconstruct the evolution from the Neoproterozoic to Quaternary and to model the geometry of the basement under cover.
