Title: Logistics report for down-hole conductivity logging in the Pine Creek AEM Survey area, Northern Territory, 2008.


Custodian: Geoscience Australia

Jurisdiction: Australia



Induction conductivity data, commonly referred to as conductivity logs, were acquired from twenty four boreholes during two field campaigns in April and October 2008 in support of the Pine Creek airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey, described in Costelloe (2010). The Pine Creek AEM survey comprises three areas: Kombolgie to the east of Kakadu National Park; Woolner Granite near Darwin; and, Rum Jungle to the west of Kakadu National Park. Data in the Woolner Granite and Rum Jungle survey areas were acquired using the TEMPESTTM fixed wing AEM system. The acquisition and processing were carried out by Fugro Airborne Surveys Pty. Ltd. (FAS), under contract to GA. In the Kombolgie survey area, the data were acquired by Geotech Airborne Pty. Ltd. (Geotech) using the VTEM helicopter AEM system. The geophysical investigations were designed to deliver reliable, pre-competitive AEM data and scientific analysis of the energy resource potential of the Pine Creek region of Northern Territory. The Pine Creek AEM survey covers a total area of 73 700 km2 in the Pine Creek region of Western Australia.

Data quality


AEM survey data were acquired by the airborne geophysical survey contractors Fugro Airborne Surveys and Geotech Airborne. The inversion data were processed and produced by the authors, conductivity logging was used for geophysical modelling and details are provided in the attached report.

Positional accuracy:

Positioning was via hand held GPS.

Attribute accuracy:

The data have been acquired and processed to a standard of best practice as of the year 2010. More sophisticated processing algorithms may be applied to these data should they become available.

Logical Consistency:

Not applicable.


The dataset includes conductivity logging products produced by Geoscience Australia for the Pine Creek AEM survey.
