Abstract

The Olympic Cu-Au Province, of the eastern Gawler Craton, lies beneath the sedimentary sequences of the Stuart Shelf. Rocks of the basement are Late Archean metamorphics, and the Proterozoic Donington Suite, Hutchison Group, Wallaroo Group, Hiltaba Suite granitoids and mafic intrusives, and the Gawler Range Volcanics. Except for parts of the Gawler Range Volcanics, none of the basement crops out and is covered by sequences exceeding 3 km thickness, in places. Interpretation of units and structures was via gravity and airborne magnetic data. Some geological calibration was done by checking exploration drill logs or by examining the core. When core was examined, petrophysical properties were measured and used to constrain the interpretation. This map has been produced as a GeoPDF, which is an extension to the standard PDF file format viewed using Adobe Acrobat Reader. Layers can be turned off and on to customise the view of the data, similar to using Geographic Information System tools. In addition, GeoPDF maps are georeferenced to be compatible with other coordinated geographic data. Coordinate locations and distances can be retrieved automatically. A plug-in to view GeoPDF using Adobe Acrobat Reader is available as a free download ( http://terragotech.com/solutions/map2pdf_reader.php ).
