New airborne electromagnetic (AEM) data and inversion products have been released for the Frome Embayment area in South Australia. The data were acquired using the TEMPESTTM AEM system during 2010 and cover 95 450 square kilometres in 32 317 line kilometres. The survey primarily targeted potential uranium-bearing mineral systems in the Callabonna Sub-basin of the Frome Embayment and the Lake Eyre Basin on the flanks of the northern Flinders Ranges, continuing to Marree and Cameron Corner and included portions of the Curnamona Province and the northwest Murray Basin.
This data release includes new inversions using the Geoscience Australia layered earth inversion (GA-LEI) algorithm and data products, including point-located ASCII data and geo-located grids, sections and images.
The Phase 2 Frome Embayment TEMPESTTM AEM survey final inversion data and conductivity models will be available from 7 July 2011 as a free download.
New airborne electromagnetic (AEM) inversion products have been released for the Kombolgie VTEMTM AEM survey area in the Northern Territory. Data have been inverted using the layered Earth inversion algorithm software developed at Geoscience Australia.
The Pine Creek AEM Kombolgie survey covered a total of 8800 line kilometres over an area of 32 000 square kilometres and included mapping of subsurface geological features associated with unconformity-related, sandstone-hosted Westmoreland-type and Vein-type uranium mineralisation. The data are capable also of interpretation for other commodities including metals and potable water as well as for landscape evolution studies. The improved understanding of the regional geology to a depth of greater than 1500 metres resulting from the inversion results will be of considerable benefit to mining and mineral exploration companies.
