Geoscience Australia, 2010. Mineral Resource Potential Assessment of the Woomera Prohibited Area, South Australia. Report  2010. Geoscience Australia, Canberra.

Abstract

In June 2010, Geoscience Australia was tasked by the Australian Government Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism to undertake a qualitative mineral resource [1] potential assessment of the Woomera Prohibited Area (WPA) in central South Australia. The assessment was undertaken in collaboration with the Department of Primary Industries and Resources, South Australia (PIRSA). The mineral resource potential assessment determines the deposit types likely to occur within geological frameworks known or interpreted to exist in the WPA. Geologically prospective areas that contain particular types of deposits are identified and ranked low to high potential, and similarly the level of certainty categorised from lowest (A) to highest (D). [1] 'Mineral resource' is used in this report and maps in the sense defined by United States Geological Survey as a concentration of naturally occurring solid, liquid, or gaseous material in such form and amount that economic extraction is currently or potentially feasible.
