Title: Leonora - Edjudina aeromagnetic interpretation


Custodian: Geoscience Australia

Jurisdiction: Australia



The map addresses the distribution of Archaean rocks of the central Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia. Interpretation was undertaken at 1:250 000 scale for both Geoscience Australia aeromagnetic data (400m linespacing) and Fugro Airborne Surveys Pty. Ltd. data (200m linespacing). The Archaean rocks are subdivided into undivided gneiss-migmatite-granite (Agmg), banded gneiss (Agn), greenstone (Aa), and granite plutons (Ag). Where important relative differences in magnetisation are mapped, the geophysical map units include the suffixes _h (high), _m (medium), _l (low) and _r (remanent) for the level of magnetisation. Dykes, faults, and unassigned small intrusives are also mapped. The map is derived from a subset of a more extensive interpretation covering the exposed extent of the Yilgarn Craton.

Data quality


The lines and polygons of the aeromagnetic interpretation were drawn on film overlaying images at 1:250,000 scale. Images, produced at Geoscience Australia, of TMI and the 1st vertical derivative of TMI were used for interpretation of the 400 m and 200 m line spaced aeromagnetic data. The film drawings were subsequently scanned, digitised on screen and attributed.

Positional accuracy:

The estimated positional accuracy of mapped anomalies and boundaries for the aeromagnetic interpretation is in the order of 200 - 500 m (drawing accuracy at 1: 250 000 interpretation capture scale) where flight lines cut anomalies at right angles, but may be less accurate where flight lines cross anomalies at acute angles.

Attribute accuracy:

The assigned attributes in the interpretive covers are qualitative as may be expected from interpretation of regional aeromagnetic data. However, extensive field work has been undertaken on the Kalgoorlie 1:1M Sheet to 'ground truth' aspects of the interpretations.

Logical Consistency:

Data have been checked/edited visually on plots and for topological consistency using in-house routines and Arc/Info software.


Aeromagnetic data coverage of this part of the Yilgarn Craton includes surveys with specifications 400 m to 200 m line spacing and 7 to 10 m station spacing along lines giving rise to differences in interpretation detail across the interpreted data sets. The interpretation was captured at 1:250 000 scale for use at 1:500 000 to 1:1M scale and summarises detail available in the images (ie not all anomalies are represented in the interpretation).
