Abstract

The Steering Committee met in June. An important aspect of the meeting was a discussion on the hydrogeological phase of the Project, which at Bureau of Mineral Resources (BMR) formally began at the beginning of July. It was considered that the hydrogeological assessment should include: the acquisition from State Authorities of all available data, which would then be entered into a BMR database designed for the Project; the preparation of an initial report assessing the available data and recording deficiencies, together with accompanying maps including the following: 1:1 million scale water table and potential contours for the three/four hydrostratigraphic units; 1:1 million scale salinity variations including specific ions, for the three/four hydrostratigraphic units; 1:2.5 million scale maps depicting amount of water abstracted-added per unit area, recharge-discharge areas, distribution and type of salting, streamflow-groundwater interactions, and distribution of aquifer parameters for a 7-layer hydrogeological model (aquifers and aquicludes). Compilation of the 1:1 million scale geological map of the basin continued at BMR.
