Abstract

Borehole induction conductivity data, commonly referred to as conductivity logs, were acquired from 20 boreholes in the Frome region of South Australia, during July-August 2010, in support of the Frome airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey managed by Geoscience Australia (GA). The conductivity logs were used to assist in generating reference models for geophysical inversions of the AEM data, and to provide an independent dataset for assessing the inversion results. The Frome AEM survey was acquired using the Fugro Airborne Surveys (FAS) TEMPEST fixed wing time-domain electromagnetic (TEM) AEM system. The acquisition and processing of data were carried out by FAS under contract to GA. The geophysical investigations were designed to deliver reliable, pre-competitive AEM data and scientific analysis of the energy resource potential of the Frome region of South Australia, including the flanks of the Northern Flinders Ranges, the Frome Embayment, the Olary Ranges and the northwestern Murray Basin. The Frome AEM survey covers a total area of 95,000 km2 and was flown between 22 May and 2 November 2010.
