1. Depth to magnetic basement map of the Gawler-Curnamona region, South Australia

The newly-released Depth to magnetic basement map of the Gawler-Curnamona region, South Australia map was constructed from a compilation of point-located depth values below topography consisting of depth to magnetic source estimates, basement drill hole intersections and interpreted seismic depth estimates. These point depths were combined with mapped geology to delineating the outcropping basement and were then gridded.

2. Workshop on new seismic and MT datasets in South Australia and the Northern Territory

There will be a one-day workshop on Thursday 25 November 2010 in Adelaide to present the results of new seismic reflection and magnetotelluric data collected for the L190 Gawler-Officer-Musgrave-Amadeus Deep Crustal Seismic Survey, SA and NT, 2008. This workshop will be held in conjunction with the Department of Primary Industries and Resources South Australia (PIRSA), AuScope and the Northern Territory Geological Survey (NTGS).

Details about the workshop and registration will be available shortly.
