The new data is taken from a survey project managed by Geoscience Australia on behalf of the Northern Territory Geological Survey.

Data was acquired at a station spacing of 2km x 2km, and the accompanying figure (left) shows the incorporation of both new and pre-existing gravity data.

Data from two recent surveys over the Central Gawler Craton and the Central Curnamona Province by Primary Industry and Resources SA have also been supplied to Geoscience Australia and added to the Australian National Gravity Database.

The South Australian data cover parts of the following 1:250 000 sheet areas: Tarcoola, Childara, Streaky Bay, Yardea, Port Augusta and Gairdner for the Central Gawler Craton Survey and Callabonna, Frome and Curnamona for the Central Curnamona Province Survey.

All data in the Australian National Gravity Database can be obtained free-of-charge using GADDS.
