Description:
The Toko Syncline is a 200 km long, asymmetric, northwest-trending structural trough located on the southwestern edge of the Georgina Basin in central Australia. Approximately 5000 m of Neoproterozoic to Paleozoic strata are preserved in the structure, with Middle Cambrian units considered to be prospective for petroleum. The Toomba Fault forms the southwestern edge of the syncline and juxtaposes Proterozoic crystalline basement of the Arunta Block with Paleozoic sedimentary units preserved in the syncline. Due to complex structure and poor surface exposure, the structural history of the Toomba Fault is difficult to determine. Regional geophysical studies from the 1970's indicate that the Toomba Fault is a high-angle reverse fault dipping west-southwest, with an estimated offset of 6.5 km (Harrison, 1980), but a more indepth investigation into the subsurface structure of the syncline and structural history of the fault has been lacking.
