Abstract

This dataset represents a preliminary basement solid geology interpretation undertaken for the purpose of producing an iron oxide-copper-gold mineral system assessment in the southern Arunta Region. The area covered includes parts of the Warumpi and Aileron provinces which occur in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. The interpretation was developed from existing published solid geology datasets, 1:1 000 000 and 1:250 000 maps of surface geology, and new interpretation of magnetic and gravity data. The solid geology map is intended to represent basement lithology, which in most cases consists of units older than the Neoproterozoic. This dataset is a preliminary interpretation and is solely intended to be used as a supporting dataset for the assessment of the potential for iron oxide-copper-gold systems in the southern Arunta Region.

Lineage

Where available, this dataset closely follows interpretations from existing published solid geology datasets. These were sourced from the Northern Territory Geological Survey and the Geological Survey of Western Australia. Interpretations from existing datasets were compared with Geoscience Australia's 1:1 000 000 surface geology of Australia dataset and published 1:250 000 geological maps. Where it was deemed necessary, existing coverages were modified using a combination of surface geology and geophysical (magnetic and gravity) imagery. In some areas, new solid geology interpretations were made using surface geology and geophysical (magnetic and gravity) imagery. The interpretation was undertaken at a scale of 1:500 000, and is intended to represent the geology at 1:1 000 000 scale. Unit attribute information has been populated from the Australian stratigraphic units database (http://www.ga.gov.au/products-services/data-applications/reference-databases/stratigraphic-units.html).
