Abstract

As part of the North Pilbara NGMA Project, AGSO (now Geoscience Australia), together with Newcastle University and the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA), have been conducting a research program to document the geological setting, characteristics and genesis of Au deposits of the North Pilbara Terrane. This record summarises some results of this research program. This research has concentrated on turbidite-hosted lode Au deposits in the Indee and Nullagine areas as well as basalt and ultramafic-hosted deposits in the Mt York-Lynas Find area. In addition to these areas, AGSO's research also concentrated on epithermal deposits in the Indee area, and less detailed studies were undertaken on lode Au deposits at Gold Show Hill and Klondyke. This research program was designed to complement recent (e.g., Neumayr et al. [1993; 1998] on the York deposits and Zegers [1996] on the Bamboo Creek deposits) and ongoing (e.g., D. Baker, University of Newcastle] at Mt York-Lynas Find) programs conducted at the other institutions. This Pilbara Gold Record is supported by an extensive GIS dataset, providing many new digital data sets, including a number of variations of the magnetics, gravity, and gamma-ray spectrometry. A solid geology map, and derivative maps, mineral deposits, geological events, and Landsat 5-TM provide additional views. This data set complements the 1:1.5 Million scale colour atlas (Blewett et al., 2000).
