Abstract

During July and August 1951, officers of the Geophysical Section of the Bureau of Mineral resources carried out an aeromagnetic survey of the East Gippsland area of Victoria, using the Bureau's D.C.3 aircraft VH-BUR. An F24 type aerial camera was used for taking vertical photographs for the purpose of plotting flight paths of the aircraft along the flight lines. The magnetic equipment consisted of a modified magnetic airborne Detector unit type AN/ASQ-1. The aircraft was flown at an altitude of one thousand feet above terrain, along parallel flight lines running in a north-south direction one mile apart. This report comprises notes on the survey. A provisional map showing contour lines of total magnetic intensity and magnetic anomalies is attached.
