Abstract

The North Australia Project (NAP) was initiated in July 2000 following negotiations between the Northern Territory Geological Survey (NTGS) and the Australian Geological Survey Organisation (now Geoscience Australia). The NAP was a joint project undertaking geoscientific studies in the Tanami, Arunta and Tennant regions of central Australia to help encourage mineral exploration. The project continued until June 2004, when the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA) began regional data acquisition in the western Tanami region. In July 2004, the Tanami Project, a joint initiative between Geoscience Australia, NTGS, and GSWA to increase mineral exploration replaced the NAP. Although NTGS and GSWA have continued interests in the Tanami and Arunta regions, the collaborative Tanami Project will finish in December 2006. The purpose of this product is to provide reports and datasets summarising the results of the project at this time. The only major products not included in this DVD are the results of the Tanami seismic survey and modifications to the on-line 3D models required by the seismic results. These will be released separately, beginning in August 2006. As this report is intended to be as up-to-date as possible, it refers to a number of manuscripts that are either in press or in preparation. Although these manuscripts cannot be provided here, much of the data upon which the conclusions are based are presented in summary, either in abstracts, presentations, or data tables.
