Abstract

Funded by the Australian Government's Onshore Energy Security Program the Pine Creek airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey was flown over the Pine Creek Orogen and parts of the McArthur, Victoria River and Daly Basins in the Northern Territory between August 2008 and 24th May 2009. The survey comprises three survey areas: Kombolgie, east of Kakadu National Park; Woolner Granite, near Darwin; and, Rum Jungle, west of Kakadu National Park. The Pine Creek survey was the second regional AEM survey flown in Australia. The survey cost of $3 745 000 included a 29 900 line km flown at various line spacings (555m, 1666m and 5000m) and covered approximately 74 000 km2. The Woolner Granite and Rum Jungle survey areas were flown by Fugro Airborne Surveys Pty. Ltd. (FAS), for Geoscience Australia (GA), using the TEMPESTTM time-domain AEM system. The Kombolgie survey area was flown by Geotech Airborne Pty. Ltd VTEMTM time-domain AEM system. The Pine Creek AEM survey was designed to deliver reliable, pre-competitive AEM data to promote exploration for uranium, copper-gold, base metals, tin and nickel in both brownfields and greenfields areas. The survey area hosts several uranium deposits, including the Ranger Uranium Mine, Rum Jungle and Nabarlek.
