Abstract

Airborne Electromagnetic data are being acquired by Geoscience Australia in areas considered to have potential for uranium or thorium mineralisation under the Australian Government's Onshore Energy Security Program (OESP). The surveys have been managed and interpreted by Geoscience Australia's Airborne Electromagnetic Acquisition and Interpretation project. In contrast to industry style deposit scale investigations, these surveys are designed to reveal new geological information at regional scale. The Frome Embayment AEM survey was acquired using the TEMPEST<sup>TM</sup> AEM system by Fugro Airborne Surveys under contract to Geoscience Australia. The survey covers a total of 32 300 line km and an area of 95 450 km<sup>2</sup>, the largest AEM survey by area ever flown in Australia. Phase-1 data, that is, contractor quality-controlled and quality-assessed data for the Frome survey, were released during March 2011. Phase-2 data, that is Geoscience Australia layered earth inversion (GA-LEI) data and derived products to 400m were released in July 2011. This data package contains GA-LEI data and derived products to 200m. Data and products described in this report are available from the GA AEM website.
