Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources is undertaking an investigation of the hydrogeology and hydrochemistry of the surficial materials in the Magela and Cooper Creek catchments of the Alligator Rivers Region, NT. This study is part of a program being undertaken by the Office of the Supervising Scientist for the recognition and monitoring of environmental change which may occur as a consequence of the mining of uranium in the catchments. This report is concerned with the progress of the study in 1979; it is mainly a record of the work undertaken and of the results to hand at the end of 1979. The main aim of the investigation is to establish a network of monitoring bores in the two catchments for the purpose of gathering baseline data on groundwater chemistry and hydraulics of the surficial cover to the bedrock. The data will be used by others as input to computer models of the two catchments.
