Article
A convergence of climate, paleolatitude, basin evolution, water depth and seawater chemistry conditions, favourable for carbonate precipitation and preservation, facilitated initiation and sustained growth of the ~350 m-thick Arkaroola carbonate reef, part of the Balcanoona Formation, during the Cryogenian interglacial in South Australia’s northern...
Article
The Drummond Basin of central Queensland preserves a large-volume succession of little studied, predominantly fluviatile, coarse-grained sedimentary rocks of mid-Mississippian age. The stratigraphy of the basin has been subdivided into three sedimentary cycles. The Cycle 1/Cycle 2 boundary records a distinct, but poorly understood change in provena...
Conference Paper
The Drummond Basin of central Queensland preserves a large-volume succession of little studied, predominantly fluviatile, coarse-grained, cratonic-derived sedimentary rocks of mid-Mississippian age. Termed Cycle 2, this succession separates mostly volcanic-related (Cycle 1 and 3) successions. The Cycle 1-2 boundary records a distinct, but poorly un...

The development of a carbonate reef on the eastern margin of the Adelaide Geosyncline in a period bracketed by two mid-Neoproterozoic (Cryogenian) global glaciations reflects the concurrence of extrinsic factors, including: low (~ 8°) palaeolatitudal position, palaeotopographic situation at a rift margin, relative sea level shallowing following pro...
Article
Lower than anticipated gas production rates in coal bed methane (CBM) operations are sometimes related to formation damage in which reduced permeability results from the interaction of bore and fracturing fluids with coal. This study assesses the potential for mineral precipitation to cause formation damage from a Permian coal seam in the Bowen Bas...

The delineation of a fluid active zone (FAZ) around a underground coal gasification (UCG) chamber is crucial for effective UCG operation and compliance monitoring. With the application of a simple but standardised scientific method, UCG operators can track FAZ evolution. This interpretation of monitoring data: 1. delivers real-time information for...

1. Background and Objectives Using new technology and best practices such as carbon capture and storage (CCS), underground coal gasification (UCG) has potential to improve recovery of energy from coal. The unique needs of UCG require regulation modification for successful and safe management of its development. The objectives of this study are: to...
Article
Full-text available
Organic compounds in Australian coal seam gas produced water (CSG water) are poorly understood despite their environmental contamination potential. In this study, the presence of some organic substances is identified from government-held CSG water-quality data from the Bowen and Surat Basins, Queensland. These records revealed the presence of polyc...
Conference Paper

Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) offers new opportunities in energy production that address conventional fossil fuel limitations and geopolitical incentives for regional energy self-reliance. The past decade has seen major advances in development and implementation of successful UCG trial plants in Queensland, Australia. The Queensland experienc...

Article
The incipient Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) industry in Queensland, Australia, undertook three trial projects in two Mesozoic basins of southeast Queensland. The experiences of these three operations provide useful retrospective insight into gasifier productivity. This paper identifies key output measures of gasifier ‘success’ including outpu...
Article
Full-text available
Environmental Burkholderia pseudomallei isolated from sandy soil at Castle Hill, Townsville, in the dry tropic region of Queensland, Australia, was inoculated into sterile-soil laboratory microcosms subjected to variable soil moisture. Survival and sublethal injury of the B. pseudomallei strain were monitored by recovery using culture-based methods...
Article
Stromatolites consist primarily of trapped and bound ambient sediment and/or authigenic mineral precipitates, but discrimination of the two constituents is difficult where stromatolites have a fine texture. We used laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry to measure trace element (rare earth element – REE, Y and Th) concentration...
Article
Neoproterozoic glaciogenic formations are preserved in the Kimberley region and northwestern Northern Territory of northern Australia. They are distributed in the west Kimberley adjacent to the northern margins of the King Leopold Orogen, the Mt Ramsay area at the junction of the King Leopold and Halls Creek orogens, and east Kimberley, adjacent to...
Article
Full-text available
Broad-scale clearing of native vegetation for agriculture in southwestern Australia has resulted in severe ecosystem degradation, which has been compounded by the subsequent development of large areas of dryland salinity; decreased transevaporation allows the water table to rise, dissolving ancient aeolian salt deposits and creating saline surface...

Neoproterozoic glaciogenic formations are preserved in the Kimberley region and northwestern Northern Territory of northern Australia.

Article
Full-text available
Burkholderia pseudomallei, the causative agent of melioidosis is associated with soil. This study used a geographic information system (GIS) to determine the spatial distribution of clinical cases of melioidosis in the endemic suburban region of Townsville in Australia. A total of 65 cases over the period 1996-2008 were plotted using residential ad...
Article
Full-text available
Geospatial analysis of the distribution of clinical cases of melioidosis, an often fatal tropical disease, in the Townsville region indicated case clustering in distinct geomorphic settings and characteristic soil associations. Two significant clusters were identified. Cluster 1 is associated with piedmont slopes adjacent to granitic hill and mount...
Article
Facies, provenance and palaeocurrent analysis of the predominantly siliciclastic Neoproterozoic succession of the east Kimberley district of northwestern Australia indicates southwesterly-directed regional palaeoice-flow directions associated with continental glaciation. Facies relationships at three key study sites in the east Kimberley record gla...
Article
The term ‘cap carbonate’ is commonly used to describe carbonate units associated with glacigenic deposits in Neoproterozoic successions. Attempts to use carbonate units as stratigraphic markers have been counfounded by inconsistent identification of ‘cap carbonates’ and a somewhat broad use of the term. Systematic sedimentological and geochemical a...
Article
The 80-m-thick Egan Formation preserves sediment deposited during the younger of two episodes of glaciation recorded in the Neoproterozoic succession of the Kimberly region, northwestern Australia. Like many terminal Proterozoic glaciations recorded in Australia and elsewhere, the glacial strata of the Egan Formation are associated with carbonate r...
Article
Tungussia julia, a Neoproterozoic III stromatolite, occurs in the Egan Formation (Louisa Downs Group), the uppermost glacigenic unit in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Identification of this stromatolite is significant because it allows biostratigraphic correlation of the Egan Formation with the Julie Formation of the Amadeus Basin (Supe...
