Abstract

This dataset represents the results of the assessment of the potential for uranium and geothermal energy systems in the southern Northern Territory. Four uranium systems were targeted: 1) sandstone-hosted, 2) uranium-rich iron oxide-copper-gold, 3) unconformity-related, and 4) magmatic-related. These were assessed for using a 2D, GIS-based approach, and utilised a mineral systems framework. In addition to the uranium systems investigated, the potential for hot rock and hot sedimentary aquifer geothermal systems was also assessed. Only the results of the hot rock geothermal assessment are presented here, since the assessment for hot sedimentary aquifer geothermal systems is more qualitative in nature. The assessment for hot rock geothermal systems was undertaken in a 3D environment, with temperatures at depth predicted using the 3D GeoModeller software package.
