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 TEMPESTTM AEM system by Fugro Airborne Surveys under contract to GA. The survey covers a total of 32 300 line km and an area of 95 450 km2, the largest AEM survey by area ever flown in Australia. This data release contains the Phase-1 data, that is, contractor quality-controlled and quality-assessed data fas well as the Phase-2 data, that is Geoscience Australia layered earth inversion (GA-LEI) data and derived products for the Callabonna Uranium Infill Area. The data and products described in this report are available from the GA AEM website.
