Home   /   Two major surveys set to begin flying in NE QLD

Geoscience Australia and GSQ will begin acquisition by the end of June of 33,000 line-km of airborne gravity gradiometry (AGG) over the Georgetown region. This survey is funded by Queensland’s New Economy Minerals Initiative. The survey will be flown at a 1 km line spacing and builds on the successful template established by the Canobie AGG in 2022. GA and GSQ will also begin flying an extension of AusAEM by the end of next month. Acquisition of up to 18 000 line-km at a 20 km line spacing will fill the gap between the eastern limit of current coverage and the Queensland coast. AusAEM results will be integrated with crustal seismic, aeromagnetic, gravity, geology and geochemistry to improve estimation of cover thickness and definition of basins.
