In the frame of a regional project evaluating the geothermal potential of the Wallonian Region of Belgium, the Hockai Fault Zone has been identified as one of the most interesting targets. It is a seismically active fault zone that hosted the largest historical earthquake in Northwestern Europe, the M6-6.5 Verviers event in 1692 as well as a swarm of small earthquakes that was recorded in 1989-90. On the surface, the presence of the fault zones is marked by a series of geomorphic features, such as several landslides near the borders in the northern part, repeated NW-SE oriented scarps all along the Eastern border (over a distance of 40 km), river diversions and captures with formation of paleo-valleys....

A gravimetrical exploration has been realized in the area of Mol and Turnhout (province of Antwerp, Belgium) to localize steep dipping faults in the Paleozoic bed rock and the Meso- to Cenozoic overburden. With a 600 to 1000m thick overburden consisting of sand and clay, 10m high steps in the bed rock result in significant gravimetrical anomalies. The interpretation is based upon comparison with theoretical anomalies computed for various density contrasts and depths. After the classical corrections, the Bouguer anomaly has been smoothed and horizontal derivatives computed to reduce the effect of shallow heterogeneities and regional gradients. The results confirm the presence of several faults already detected by other methods and enable a more accurate positionning. [less ▲]
