  • This project is based on the recognition that combinations of specific granite types and distinctive host rocks tend to be associated with certain types of Au, Cu, Zn, Pb, Sn and W mineralisation. Rarely is Proterozoic mineralisation hosted by granites themselves, for the most part being hosted in the country rock, often three or more kilometres from the nearest known granite. There is an apparent host rock control on the deposition of metals: this can be both compositional and also controlled by the competency of the host lithologies. This compositional host rock control has been documented by Stuart-Smith et al. (1993 - Geology and mineral deposits of the Cullen Mineral field, AGSO Bull. 229) for the Pine Creek Inlier and noted in the eastern Mount Isa Inlier by Wyborn and Heinrich (1993 - The relationship between late-tectonic felsic intrusives and Cu-Au mineralisation in the Eastern Fold Belt, Mount Isa Inlier, Trans Royal Soc Edinburgh, Earth Sci, 83, 201-209). This project collated data on the Proterozoic granites and their comagmatic volcanics, the mineralogical composition of the rocks that they intrude and briefly assessed the style and type of mineralisation present within 5 kms of an outcrop of granite. All data collated in the reports is built into the accompanying GIS, and essentially each item listed in the report is converted into a searchable item within the GIS. This project has aimed to provide the data and interpretations to show the following: 1) Which Proterozoic granites have metallogenic potential, 2) What commodities they are likely to be associated with, and 3) Where the better host rocks are located that are likely to host potential mineralisation. <p>Related material<a href="https://www.ga.gov.au/products/servlet/controller?event=GEOCAT_DETAILS&amp;catno=33388">The metallogenic potential of Australian Proterozoic granites.

  • The map addresses the distribution of Archaean rocks of the central Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia. Interpretation was undertaken at 1:250 000 scale for both Geoscience Australia aeromagnetic data (400m linespacing) and Fugro Airborne Surveys Pty. Ltd. data (200m linespacing). The Archaean rocks are subdivided into undivided gneiss-migmatite-granite (Agmg), banded gneiss (Agn), greenstone (Aa), and granite plutons (Ag). Where important relative differences in magnetisation are mapped, the geophysical map units include the suffixes _h (high), _m (medium), _l (low) and _r (remanent) for the level of magnetisation. Dykes, faults, and unassigned small intrusives are also mapped. The map is derived from a subset of a more extensive interpretation covering the exposed extent of the Yilgarn Craton.

  • The Corporate Administrative Records Collection of Geoscience Australia (GA) is a bi fold collection; consisting of electronic/digital documents and records in physical paper format. The digital collection consists of electronic information, which may be "born digital" (created using computer technology) or converted into digital form from their original format (e.g. scans of paper documents). These records are created by all GA employees and are evidence of business conducted by GA and its predecessors. The location of these digital records is in TRIM (electronic document management system). This product treats documents and records in the same way, so that end users perform the same task on all items that are stored in the system, irrespective of whether the item is a document or is to be declared as a record. The digital records can be captured in any format; e.g. excel document, word document, pdf document, emails, etc. When a user saves a document for the first time in TRIM they are prompted for metadata, which is then used to create the record.
