Abstract

The Frome airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey is the last and largest (in line kilometres and area) of the three AEM surveys flown under the Onshore Energy Security Program at Geoscience Australia. The survey covered about 95 000 km2 (about six 1:250 000 map sheets) and covered the Frome Embayment, northern Murray Basin and the flanks of the Eromanga Basin in South Australia. Survey data are providing new insights into the stratigraphy of the Frome Embayment and Murray Basin, and will add to our knowledge of the sources and sinks of sandstone related uranium mineral systems, as well as base metals, gold and copper, in this highly prospective area, as well as ground water resources. This seminar will present highlights of the survey and demonstrate AEM data integrated with other data sets to develop 3D models to explorable depths, lowering exploration risk.
