Abstract

The present report is a compilation of 531 geochemical maps that result from the National Geochemical Survey of Australia. These constitute the first continental-scale series of geochemical maps based on internally consistent, state-of-the-art data pertaining to the same sampling medium collected, prepared and analysed in a uniform and well documented manner and over a short time period (four years). Interpretations of the data and maps will be published separately. The geochemical maps can be used for better understanding the accumulation, mobility and significance of chemical elements in the near-surface environment of Australia. It is expected that they will provide a new, additional pre-competitive dataset for the energy and mineral resource exploration industry, which should help prioritise areas for further exploration investment and thus reduce risk. Further, it is also likely that some of the geochemical maps will find use in other disciplines related to natural resource management and environmental monitoring. Please note that a hard copy of the Atlas can be obtained by contacting Client Services.
