b'Geophysics in the SurveysNewsNorthern Territory Geological Survey: Geophysical and remote sensingprojectsThe Northern Territory Governments Resourcing the Territory initiative provides $26 million over 4 years (20182022) to support long-term sustainability of the Territorys resource sector. The initiative aims to increase exploration activity within the NT through a range of pre-competitive geoscience programmes including regional scale geophysical data acquisition and exploration stimulus programmes.The pre-competitive geophysical programme focusses on upgrading the quality and resolution of older airborne magnetic and radiometric datasets. The first survey acquired under this programme is the NTGS Tanami Region Airborne Magnetic, Radiometric and Elevation Survey. This survey covers more than 42 000 square km extending from the Western Australian border to approximately 300 km west of Tennant Creek (Figure 1). The survey was flown at 200 m line spacing with more than 240 000 line km acquired. Industry partners funded an additional 30 000 line km of infill data at 100 m line spacing. Preliminary magnetic and elevation data was released publically in June 2018 (Figure 2).The NTGS Mount PeakeCrawford Airborne Magnetic, Radiometric and Elevation Survey is the second survey to be acquired under this programme. Commencing in mid-2019, the survey is centred 250 km north-north east of Alice Springs (Figure 1). With 200 m spaced north-south lines, this dataset will be a significant improvement on the existing 500 m spaced regional data acquired during the 1980s and 1990s. Industry has also partnered to infill areas of interest to 100 m line spacing. Both geophysical surveys are being managed by Geoscience Australia.The NTGS Geophysics and Drilling Collaborations (GDC) programme has also been continued under the Resourcing the Territory initiative. This programme provides co-funding to industry to undertake geophysical or drilling projects in the Northern Territory in greenfield areas. Round 11 of the GDC awarded funding to six geophysical projects, four magnetic and radiometric surveys, one Falcon airborne gravity gradiometryFigure 1.Location of the NTGS Tanami Region Airborne Magnetic, Radiometric and Elevation Survey survey and one airborne electromagnetic(green boundary), NTGS Mount PeakeCrawford Airborne Magnetic, Radiometric and Elevation Survey survey.
