Project Overview

Project Number
M0050, M0001
Project Theme
Mineral Systems


The study concentrated particularly on petrologic aspects of depositional facies and diagenetic features.

Characteristic lithologies are described of reef-complex carbonates on a scale that is useful for facies analysis of cores and cuttings as well as for field studies.

Processes that control development of economically significant porosity, and the inter-relationship between diagenetic features and associated stages of platform development, have been examined, aimed at producing a combined depositional – diagenetic model for the reef complex development.

Keywords: Canning Basin, carbonate cements, carbonate diagenesis, carbonate lithotopes, Devonian reef complexes
