Plans for the National Drilling Initiative Program in the greater Curnamona area
Characterising the cover
Depth, style and dispersion of cover, the use of airborne EM, and exhumation history
AusLAMP coverage, conductivity anomalies and the use of MT in uranium systems
4D geodynamic evolution and metallogenesis
Including Proterozoic, Cambro-Ordovician and Neotectonic geodynamics and implications for mineralisation
Distal mineral footprints
Hylogger™ applications, geochemical footprints in cover sequences
