Abstract

The airborne gamma-ray spectrometric method has been increasingly used in recent years to assist mineral exploration, and both geological and environmental mapping. With this growth there has developed an increasing need to standardise the airborne measurements so that they will be independent of survey parameters. This report presents the technical specifications for a high sensitivity airborne gamma-ray survey. They describe the minimum requirements for system calibration, system monitoring, data acquisition and data processing that are required to ensure that the final processed data are of the highest possible quality. The technical specifications are accompanied by a guide to explain these specifications and provide additional insights into the airborne gamma-ray spectrometric method.
