Regional Geodynamics Project

This project concluded on 30 June 2013.

Overview

This map of Australia shows the location of the regional projects undertaken by Geoscience Australia in the past 5 years. These areas are the Mount Isa-Georgetown-Charters Towers region of northern Queensland, the Gawler Craton-Curnamona region of central-south South Australia, the Gawler-Officer-Musgrave-Amadeus region of central Australia, the Georgina-Arunta region of southern Northern Territory, the Capricorn region of northern Western Australia, the Youanmi area of central Western Australia and the Yilgarn-Officer-Musgrave region of east-central Western Australia.

areas

This project acquired, processed and interpreted pre-competitive geoscience information associated with mineral resources in selected provinces and basins across Australia to identify prospectivity and promote new data and results to industry, in partnership with State and Northern Territory Geological Surveys. The project also utilised datasets collected as part of the Onshore Energy Security Program. Processed data and images of seismic surveys and images for magnetotelluric (MT) surveys can be found on the Seismic Acquisition and Processing Project page. The aim of the project was to increase investment in exploration for onshore mineral resources in selected provinces and basins across Australia, to improve discovery rates for these resources.

Each year the project focused in a different area:

  • Mount Isa-Georgetown-Charters Towers, Queensland in 2008-09
  • Gawler-Curnamona, South Australia in 2009-10
  • Amadeus-Arunta-Georgina, Northern Territory in 2010-11
  • Capricorn region, Western Australia in 2011-12
  • Yilgarn-Officer-Musgraves, Western Australia in 2012-13.
