Description

Abstract: This dataset spatially represents the OZROX Field Geology Database.The OZROX database contains location and field description information. Field descriptions include, information on lithology, stratigraphic unit, alteration, magnetic susceptibility, hand-held radiometric spectrometer response and structural measurements.OZROX has over 100 000 field sites derived mainly from AGSO - Geoscience Australia's mapping, with additional contributions from Universities and State Surveys. Many of Geoscience Australia's laboratory databases link to OZROX in the corporate Oracle relational database system. This dataset currently represents only a small portion of all the possible attributes described OZROX.
