Resum: Exhumation in the Eromanga Basin of South Australia and Queensland has been quantified using the compaction methodology. The standard method of estimating exhumation using the sonic log has been modified and the adjusted sonic, the bulk density and neutron logs, have been used to estimate exhumation. Additionally the use of a single shale has not been adopted, and seven units, ranging in age from Cretaceous to Jurassic have been analysed. All units yield similar results; and burial at depth greater than currently observed is the most likely cause of overcompaction. The use of the adjusted sonic, bulk and neutron logs have been justified. This study has major implications for hydrocarbon exploration since predicted maturation of source rocks will be greater for any given geothermal history if exhumation is incorporated in maturation modelling.
