Title: Pine Creek - Kombolgie VTEM AEM Survey, NT, 2010. Final Data including infill areas: K1, L2 and K3. (P1195)


Custodian: Geoscience Australia

Jurisdiction: Australia



During 2008 and 2009, and under the Australian Government's Onshore Energy Security Initiative, Geoscience Australia acquired airborne electromagnetic (AEM) data over the Pine Creek Orogen of the Northern Territory. The survey area was split into three areas for acquisition. VTEM data was acquired in the Kombolgie area east of Kakadu National Park (this data set) between August and November 2008. TEMPEST data was acquired west of Kakadu National Park with the area split in two to facilitate the use of two aircraft: the Woolner Granite area in the north was acquired between October and December 2008; and the Rum Jungle area adjoining to the south, was acquired between October 2008 and May 2009. The main purpose of the surveys was to provide additional geophysical/geological context for unconformity style uranium mineral systems and thereby promote related exploration. The survey data will also provide information on depth to Proterozoic/Archean basement, which is of general interest to explorers, and will be used as an input into ground water studues in the region. This dataset includes subscriber company infill areas K1, K2 and K3.

Data quality


The AEM survey data were acquired and processed by the airborne geophysical survey contractors Geotech Airborne Pty Ltd. Details on the acquisition and processing are available in Carter et al. (2009), which is included in the dataset.

Positional accuracy:

Positioning was via post-processed differential GPS methods. Horizontal positional accuracy of the data is approximately 1 metre (standard deviation).

Attribute accuracy:

The data have been acquired and processed to a standard of best practice as of the year 2009. More sophisticated processing algorithms may be applied to these data should they become available.

Logical Consistency:

Not applicable.


The dataset includes all final data and products created by the survey contractor Geotech .
