Wood, F.W. & McCarthy, E., 1952. Preliminary report on scintillometer airborne surveys over the Rum Jungle area and other portions of the Northern Territory. Record  1952/079. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The first airborne scintillometer surveys to be carried out by the Geophysical Section of the Bureau have now been completed. In this work the Shoran radar positioning system was also used for the first time. Detailed surveys were made over an area of about one thousand square miles surrounding the Rum Jungle granite and one of about twenty square miles in the Edith River district. In addition, flights were made over several other known granite masses in the northern part of the Northern Territory and along both sides of the railway line from Batchelor to Katherine. In addition to the Dakota aircraft, an Auster aircraft was chartered for some experimental low-level flights over areas of special interest selected on the basis of indications discovered during the survey by the Dakota. Instruments and methods used in the course of the surveys, results, and conclusions are discussed.
