Call for Expressions of Interest to subscribe to a regional airborne electromagnetic survey in northern Australia

As part of the Exploring for the Future programme, Geoscience Australia will be conducting a regional airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey from the Hamersley Ranges WA to the Lake Mackay region in NT (approximately 1,150,000 km 2 ), expected to start in February 2019. The survey will consist of 20 km spaced lines over parts of the Broom, Halls Creek, Newcastle Waters, Hamersley Range, Oakover River, Lake Mackay, Alice Springs, Wiluna, Petermann Ranges and Oonadatta 1:1,000,000 standard map sheets.

The data collected will contribute to mapping regional features of the regolith, geology and hydrogeology and understanding the mineral and groundwater resource potential of the survey areas.

Geoscience Australia is inviting interested companies to subscribe to the survey. This opportunity will enable participants to obtain competitive pricing, as Geoscience Australia will cover mobilisation and stand-by costs, and ‘fit for purpose’ data that have been subject to Geoscience Australia’s stringent quality assurance and quality control procedures.
