Abstract

Under Geoscience Australia's Onshore Energy Security Program (OESP), Airborne Electromagnetic (AEM) data were acquired in areas considered prospective for unconformity-related and palaeochannel-hosted uranium deposits. The program was aimed at reducing exploration risk and promoting exploration activity. The surveys were designed to reveal new information about regions by acquiring the AEM data at line spacings of one to six kilometres over relatively large areas. As well as enhancing the search for uranium and other energy sources, the survey results will be relevant in exploration for a variety of commodities and other resources, including groundwater. This data release contains the flight-paths and survey boundaries for the three AEM surveys conducted under the OESP: 1. Paterson Province (Western Australia) 2. Pine Creek (Northern Territory) 3. Frome Embayment (South Australia)
