Geophysical datasets have been collected, processed and interpreted from the region between Kalgoorlie, Kambalda and Norseman. This experiment will research whether there is a distinctive crustal-scale geophysical signature of the mineral systems in this area, which is notable for its numerous, large and well-endowed mineral (gold and nickel) deposits. The identification of a geophysical signature for mineral systems will be very useful for identifying other regions with as yet undiscovered deposits. A passive seismic campaign recorded data along the trace of the EGF1 deep reflection seismic line of 1991 and MT data were collected in a grid over the area.
This project is carried out in collaboration with the Centre for Exploration Targeting at The University of Western Australia.
