Event Details

The 1.67 million line kilometre GCAS is the largest airborne magnetic–radiometric – digital elevation model survey in South Australia’s history, providing magnetic and radiometric data at a scale and level of detail never before seen in regional geophysical data acquisition by the South Australian government. The GCAS project team has collaborated closely with Geoscience Australia, GCAS contractors and experts in the fields of magnetics and radiometrics to ensure that current best practices are followed for the duration of the acquisition and that the range of GCAS deliverables have the potential to reinvigorate mineral exploration in the Gawler Craton.

The aim of this workshop is to demonstrate the utility of the new GCAS datasets and value-added products by bringing the principal project participants together with industry and other agencies who have an interest in the project and products to discuss methodologies, interpret the results and deliver the roadmap for the remainder of the GCAS acquisition and data releases. The complete package of project management, quality control framework and enhanced deliverables have value to other jurisdictions as it sets new standards in magnetic–radiometric–elevation data capture and delivery.
