Abstract

During 2007 and 2008 and under the Australian Government's Onshore Energy Security Initiative, Geoscience Australia acquired airborne electromagnetic (AEM) data over the Paterson Province of Western Australia. At the time, interested exploration companies were offered the opportunity to infill the regional survey. The data in this release were acquired from two infill areas, S2 and S3, for Western Areas NL. The main purpose of the regional survey was to provide additional geophysical/geological context for unconformity and palaeochannel style uranium mineral systems and thereby promote related exploration. The survey data will also provide information on depth to basement, which is of general interest to explorers, and will be used as an input into a ground water evaluation of the region.
