Salt Tectonics in Australian Sedimentary Basins
Presented by Chris Elders (Curtin University)
Interest in salt deposits in sedimentary basins has increased dramatically in recent years because of its role as a seal for potential natural hydrogen and helium accumulations, because of its potential as a site for the storage hydrogen and other gases and because of its role in the formation of sediment-hosted copper deposits. Although salt is present in a number of Australian basins, there are relatively few studies that document the evolution of salt structures in the context of wider research that has developed rapidly over the past 20 years.
This presentation will summarise the results of a recent workshop held in Perth that examined the evolution of salt structures in the Petrel, Vulcan, Canning, Officer and Amadeus basins, placing them in the context of the broader evolution of the basins in which they occur.
