  • Australian Mines and Mineral Deposit Map, 1:5 000 000, June 2005 Version

  • Australian Diamond Deposits, Kimberlite and related rocks, as of April 2008

  • Igneous rocks have long been recognised as an important source of metals in uranium mineral systems. Although magmas may form mineral deposits in their own right, they may also contribute directly to basin-related mineral systems as a source of metals and/or ligands. Thus, mapping of the distribution of uranium in igneous rocks has the potential to highlight potentially prospective regions for uranium mineralisation at a macro-scale. Map 3 in the series of three maps of the uranium content of Australian igneous rocks shows the interpreted solid geology distribution of igneous rocks. Since no nationally seamless solid geology map yet exists, datasets have been compiled from a variety of State and Territory open file sources. Polygons are coloured by their average uranium content. The average uranium content of each polygon was calculated by plotting the igneous polygons together with geochemical sample points (distribution shown in Map 1 of the series) using ArcGIS software. Each polygon was then attributed with the average uranium value (in ppm) of all intersecting geochemical sample points. This approach allows igneous uranium content to be assessed on the pluton- to province-scale, depending on polygon resolution. Furthermore, the use of solid geology datasets allows for the uranium content of igneous rocks in the subsurface to be assessed, opening up broader areas for new potential uranium mineral systems. Together with the two other maps in the series, this map demonstrates the close spatial relationship between uranium-rich igneous rocks and areas of known uranium mineralisation. In addition, new regions previously unknown for uranium mineralisation can be identified.

  • This map shows copper locations by Event, Type and Status. It also shows copper regions and copper occurrences that fall within these regions. The map includes a Time-Space-Event chart, and pie charts.

  • The principal aquifers of Australia (National Geoscience Dataset) has been used to produce the hydrogeology map of the Australian continent. It is described in terms of principal aquifers, defined as those producing the best quality water at highest yield from shallowest depth. Aquifers are defined as porous or fissured, and subdivided in terms of their extent and productivity; these aspects are shown in solid colour on the map.

  • Proterozoic Uranium Mineralising events on Australian Proterozoic Georgions base, 1:5 000 000 October 2007 Version (PDF and JPG)

  • The Geology of Australia dataset documents the distribution and age of major stratigraphic, intrusive and medium to high-grade metamorphic rock units of onshore Australia. The data set was compiled to use at the 1:5,000,000 scale. The units distinguished/mapped mainly represent stratigraphic supergroups, regional intrusive associations and regional metamorphic complexes. This dataset is a generalised version of the 1:2,500,000 scale Geology (AGSOCAT No. 314111)

  • The derivation of this data set is described in detail by M.Somerville,D. Wyborn, P. N. Chopra, S. S. Rahman, D. Estrella and T. van der Meulen(1994), "Hot Dry Rocks Feasibility Study", Australian Energy Research and Development Corporation Report 94/243, pp 133. The temperature at 5 km depth has been estimated from temperature logresults from 3475 boreholes for which bottom-hole temperature andtemperature gradient data are available. An image has been built from these extrapolated temperature estimates using the Arc/Info createtin and tinlattice commands.
