Abstract

This address was presented at the Central Australian Basins Symposium, Alice Springs, Northern Territory, 16-18 August, 2005. The Neoproterozoic sedimentary successions of the Centralian Superbasin (Walter et al 1995) in the northwest Paterson Orogen, Western Australia, are host to several major mineral systems including: gold-copper (Telfer, Magnum), base metal (Nifty, Maroochydore) and uranium (Kintyre). Geological mapping of the region by Bagas and others (1991-2003) at 1:100 000 scale is being followed by a new Geoscience Australia and Geological Survey of Western Australia National Geoscience Agreement project, to acquire new airborne geophysical data, and develop an understanding of the depositional history of the Neoproterozoic Paterson stratigraphy, its subsequent deformation(s) and its mineral systems. This project will investigate and integrate sedimentary facies, geophysical properties, structural elements and other post-depositional processes, such as granite emplacement, to understand their relationships to the mineral systems in the region. The suggested links of Bagas et al (1995, 1999) between the Paterson Neoproterozoic succession and the Centralian Superbasin will also be investigated.
