    A geological map illustrates the rocks exposed at the surface of the earth. Different rock types are shown by different colours. This map, produced by GNS Science in , summarises observations made over years of exploration and research. You can zoom. Indo-Australian and Pacific plate boundary along the east coast of North Island. This environment is further complicated by the presence of tectonic-associated volcanism. Off the western shore of New Zealand, this environment has resulted in the formation of many sedimentary basins including the Northland Basin and the Taranaki Basin.

Geology and neotectonics of the Upper Nevis Basin region is the northernmost to be studied for the basin studies programme of the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences; it lies northwest of the active.

Such crustal thickening and flexure suggest a compressional, foreland-basin style of late Cenozoic development rather than the rift-graben origin previously assumed. This change in interpretation for the South Taranaki basin has implications for evaluating the thermal history of the basin and its possibilities for hydrocarbon by: [1] We use line km of seismic reflection data to map the offshore character and geometry of the Hikurangi subduction thrust and outer forearc wedge to South Island of ∼15 km.

Consequently, the inner margin of the foreland basin has been inverted and the succession almost completely eroded. In the southern part of Westland, upper crustal shortening in the Australia plate amounted to about 2 km; associated uplift started about 5 m.y.

In the central South Island, accommodation of excess continental crust is by crustal thickening and erosion. Rock uplift at rates of about 11 mm/yr at the Alpine fault is balanced by erosion producing some × 10 6 km³ of sediment deposited mainly over the Challenger Plateau immediately west of the South Island.

The central part of South Island is regarded widely as comprising a zone of continent–continent collision involving the Australia and Pacific plates ().Certain elements of this collision zone have historically been investigated in some detail, including particularly the Alpine Fault, which is the boundary between the Australia and Pacific plates, and the Southern Alps, which are the Cited by: The Reefton Goldfield produced over 67 tonnes of gold between and and was the largest gold producer on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand.

New Zealand currently sits across two tectonic plates which are converging. The Pacific plate is being subducted (pulled beneath) the Australian Plate from Samoa and Tonga in the north down to Cook Strait and Marlborough Sound in New Zealand.

Through most of the South Island the plates are sliding past each other forming the Alpine Fault. Relax on a harbour cruise, leap off the Auckland Harbour Bridge in New Zealand’s only ocean-touch bungy or even help race an America’s Cup yacht.
